Skip 116 Bistro if you?re looking for authentic BBQ. Cafeteria grade at best. We had the $60 patter for two. Everything was rewarmed. The 1/4 chicken was not warmed all the way through and was cold inside. The ribs were dried out and of terrible quality, full of cartilage and offered little edible meat. Zero ?smoke ring? was present. The pulled pork was mediocre at best, most likely produced via crockpot with bulk cafeteria Kraft BBQ sauce. No spices, rub, or flavour! The wings were ok, but dry and they skimped on the sauce. Corn bread wasn?t the worst I?ve had, but could see the kitchen staff microwave it through the pass through. The coleslaw was the best thing on the platter. Save your money.
Went here with a small group of people for dinner on a slow night. We ordered a combo platter for 5-6 people. It read definitely more than enough for all of us! Food was okay. Chicken and wings were best, I would have expected better pulled pork and ribs for a smokehouse though. They did have some of the best onion rings and their fries were great too. The owner was super helpful and went out of his way to talk to us before and after leaving to make sure that we were satisfied but unfortunately our server wasn't that great.
SO much food! definitely ordered too much, their servings are hefty. the staff is really lovely and I'm looking forward to going back for live music. the chairs were a little hard on our old bones & back but the overall decor is fun
This place is absolutely wonderful! There was live music and a friendly welcoming environment. The owner personally welcomed us and thanked us for coming. The food was incredible and so filling! The owner sent us home with a giant slice of cake each since it was my birthday. I would never run out of nice things to say about this place! 10/10 recommendation!
We were in town for the night and ordered through Skip the Dishes. The burgers were oversized, juicy, and delicious. We would highly recommend it, worth every penny. We can't wait to go back and try it again when we can eat inside.
The food is not great. The pulled pork isn't anything special. Quite a few tough chunks or pieces of pure fat covered in a pretty unremarkable sauce. I probably should have listened to my gut when the BBQ sauce was being poured from one of those huge bottles of premade stuff. The chicken wings were pretty dry and otherwise nothing special. Just your average fried wings. The chicken quarter was also pretty dry and flavorless. The ribs aren't too bad though. Bit tough, but decent flavor even without any sauce. I would have liked to review the brisket, but I was only told they didn't have any when I got to the store. There was no mention of it being unavailable when I ordered take out over the phone. I understand that there's problems with supply and the price of beef, but still. As for the sides, they ranged from eh to bad. The onion rings were so greasy, I didn't even bother with them. The fries and coleslaw are alright. The cornbread is a bit too dry and crumbly for my taste, but decent for flavor. If you're really craving BBQ then I guess this is your only choice in the area, but personally I'll be waiting until I head to Toronto for some better spots.
My boyfriend had the mushroom burger a couple weeks ago and he really liked it. We tried them again tonight and we were the last customers. The wait was quite long (around 40mins) and when we got home, the fries we very overcooked, the burgers were overdone and very salty. Kind of upset thats the outcome after spending $40.
I was there for 2 different occasions. Lunch was lovely: good portion, delicous! But the breakfast we had the second time there was barely average. The poached egg is set, not soft as I have requested. The steak and egg: well done, not medium rare as requested. The waffles was too dense.
