Agree, Butchies is very good....good selection of craft beers on tap also.

My wife likes the veggie burger at Baldwin Street Burger in Brooklin, its across street fro Corrados which has been mentioned here a few times.

Plus, wouldn't it make sense for me to secretly suggest halal-only locations if that was my hidden agenda?
I have zero issue with you recommending halal places. I am not muslim but the halal food that I have eaten in the past has been tasty and very fresh. also, places that serve it are super clean because there is a higher standard for the food.

KB is one of my favourite restaurants: http://www.kbfood.com/
Corrado's is great, especially if you have kids.
Lake Grill is solid casual dining.

I haven't been yet, but I've heard good things about Tuscan Wolf Pizzeria.

Btw they just open a Chatime North of Ajax.

I am only wishing for a Congee Queen to be open around the area.

Thai Orchid for Thai food
Milo's Greek Restaurant
They're both in the same plaza on Kingston Rd. by Valley Farm
Gotta disagree bigtime on Milos.

That used to be a Friendly Greek, and a really bad one at that (the food was worse than at any other FG location), and when the FG chain died, these guys changed the name but to this day still serve the same awful food. Avoid.

Thai Orchid never impressed me either. They used to sell a lot of Groupons... that's always a clue that a place sucks or is failing (or both).
Friendly reminder #1: The Golden Arches fast food chain is McDonald's, not MacDonald's. Thank you for your attention.
Friendly reminder #2: Price matching is NOT the law. Never was, never will be. Nobody can stop you from shopping elsewhere.

Baldwin Street Burger is for sale if you want to make your wife happy all the time :-)

But it's a bigtime issue for Sikhs, which we do have here in Durham:

Where can I find non-halal chicken besides Chick-Fil-A?

Only 1 Arby's left in Durham Region, and it's in Oshawa.
The ones in Pickering (in the mall) and Ajax (Harwood/Kingston) closed years ago. Don't know what took its place at Pickering Town Centre; the Ajax spot is now a Microwave Burger King.
The next ones out past Oshawa are in Port Hope and Peterborough which are outside Durham Region.

I second the thumbs down on Milos. Stopped going years ago when we were served frozen veggies heated from the microwave. The kitchen staff was apparently too busy standing around chatting to properly prepare food for our table and one other table.

I honestly don't know what keeps Milos alive. It's never busy! They must do a lot of takeout or catering.
What's with Pickering and awful Greek food? Did you ever try Zeus Greek Grill Gods, formerly Kopper Kitchen? (there's a Starbucks in that space now)
You know it's bad when your best choice is Mr. Greek Express....

Yep, there's plenty of tables inside and they have a big patio with picnic tables under some trees. We were there on Saturday for an early dinner around 4:30 and it wasn't too busy. Not sure if you would need reservations for peak hours.
