We ordered roast beef on bread, fries and gravy. The gravy was a huge turnoff, came thick but it looked like dark chocolate pudding. Tasted bad, too. Sticky buns to go were good but nothing super.

We were looking for a decent reasonably priced place to eat on our way from East Coast to Toronto, and this was the internet suggestion. Nothing bad, but completely unremarkable. Priced right, though, you get a complete dinner for under $15.

Came here on a Sunday evening. Service was good. Dinner specials include the entree, two sides, rolls, soup and dessert. Parents ordered the turkey and meatloaf, both were delicious. I ordered the french dip (beef on weck with au jus), also delicious. Would highly recommend.

Some restaurants are not open on Sundays but Chat's was. The food is simple but there is a large selection and very tasty. I had a beef on a bun sandwich and the beef was more tender than I've had in lots of other places....More

Friendly staff, quick service and good food. Lots of families and happy people hanging out there. The building is for sale so I don't know the future of the restaurant.
