Also had good experience with my first time trying this today at Hooker Harvey's. Got salad base. Buffalo chicken. Loads of jalapeno, guac, salsa, corn+beans, tomato,cucumber. Loved it. Great deal op!
I ordered basically the same today. It was filling for a few hours.

It's obvious that Harvey's hasn't set up a specific process for the bowls. The employee slapped the guacamole on the salad with a spatula meant for burgers. The lettuce wasn't shredded properly. That said, it was tasty and I'd buy it again at 50% off.

This is one of my first ever posts, just for you all!

We got two bowls. I got fries w/ buffalo chicken (+lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, jalapenos, harv sauce, chipotle sauce, and relish)
My friend got salad w/ grilled chicken (+lettuce, tomato, beans/corn, croutons, salsa, guac, crispy noodles, a bit of hot peppers, and sweet chili thai dressing/sauce)

She wanted shredded cheese, but they charge $1.90 extra to add a mix of bacon and cheese. No thanks.

MY REVIEW
SIZE: 8/10
VALUE: 9/10 with coupon, 5/10 otherwise
TASTE: 6.5/10

HER REVIEW:
SIZE: 8/10
VALUE: 8/10 with coupon, 5/10 otherwise
TASTE: 6/10

They both tasted more or less like you'd expect. All of those "things" in a bowl. Neither were bad. Both were filling and respectable for what they were, but the sauces weren't really designed as dressings. The buffalo chicken + fries pair together really well. I liked the crispy noodles and guac/salsa in hers. She couldn't finish it, but she's a light eater so I had the rest of hers too. I thought hers had nicer add-ins than mine, but their "salad" is pretty boring.... also, their buffalo chicken tastes a lot better than the plain old grilled chicken

$8.29 for mine
$7.99 for hers
with coupon, $8.14 + tax = $9.20 for the two ....which is a great value. At regular price? Not likely to buy again.

EDIT: the fact they don't cut the tomato slices and pickle slices at all is just silly. I forgot to point that out initially.

P.S. As you can see in this picture, they were both filled. She could barely close the lids. Sorry I didn't get it from an angle, but they were relatively deep bowls. My Presto card is there for scale, as it is a standard "credit card" profile, which everyone knows the size of!

Yes, like it was marinated with Frank's hot sauce.

One of the reasons that I dislike Harvey's is that they seem to inflate prices and then give out coupons.

So, I already know that this will be priced too much regularly.

It's not really a question of if there will be coupons, but how much?

Just had a Buffalo chicken bowl with my girlfriend at the Harveys on Vic Park and Sheppard.

Overall, positive experience (considering what you get).

I got:
Buffalo chicken on lettuce base
Tomatoes
Jalepenos
Hot peppers
Guac
Corn and beans
Crispy noodles
Salsa
Asian sesame sauce

My girlfriend got:
Buffalo chicken on lettuce base
Tomatoes
Onion
Cucumber
Guac (x3)
Corn and beans
Crispy noodles
Croutons
Salsa
Sweet chili thai sauce

Portions were very acceptable for a $4.15 salad. My girlfriend commented that if any other restaurant offered something like this, it'd be on par for regular price ($9-11).

Flavors were overwhelming however. The Buffalo chicken was oversauced. Everything else tasted like independent burger toppings trying to come together.

Nonetheless, it still did it for me. Pretty good health food option if you play it smart too!

Can't comment on the rice or fries base options as I haven't tried them... But considering that these are cold burger toppings, I can't imagine they'd compliment the fries/rice bases well..

Some photos below :)


*protip: close the bowl and shake it well to incorporate all the ingredients. Tastes more like a salad that way.
*protip2: my server wasn't generous with the initial servings of each ingredient, but was totally okay with adding more upon request.

Would come back again :) (during promo period)

Wtf!?! I went there on monday this week and they told me they were not offering this deal
I went today. They are offering it but I agree with shyhermit, it's still not worth your money because they skimp on toppings and the employees are extremely rude.

Seems portions are not standardized across the stores. Visited 2 stores not far from each other. One offered a larger base while the other was more generous on the toppings. Great deal nevertheless!

Tried it for the first time yesterday. I went with crispy chicken and fries base. Overall both me and my girlfriend liked it. Portion was bigger than expected and as a result my gf couldn't even finish hers.

Good deal for $4, can't see myself paying $8 for it though.

P.S. It was full price here at the place I went to in Calgary. I mentioned that online it says that for the first two weeks it should be half the price and then lady at the counter applied the discount.

You are supposed to show the coupon to get it for half price. It isn't automatic.
