5 - Muddy Duck
Located just footsteps away from the Toronto border on Dundas is a classic gem that serves homemade comfort food called The Muddy Duck. This place has been around since 1978, so you know they are doing something right. They have a very popular breakfast buffet on the weekends and an Italian buffet every Friday. They also have huge portions. The dish we tried was the Schnitzel a la Duck and you can see by the picture that it was really enough for two people and was absolutely delicious.

3 - Door FiftyFive
Imagine you've been whisked away to a Queen West bar. Since it opened just over two weeks ago, this place has been crazy. Even on weeknights, when other bars in the area are dead, this place is busting at the seams with people and with good reason. Get ready to be amazed. Every aspect of this place — including the space and menu — has been designed with the utmost thought to detail. Although the food menu is only about five per cent of entire menu (there are only 13 items), you will find interesting takes on southern classics, such as chicken and waffles, Rub Me the Right Way beef brisket, Boars Gone Wild smoked sausage, bison chipotle frank, blackened shrimp and gumbo cheddar grits and the boss platter (BBQ sampler platter). All of meat is smoked with SmokinLicious' cherry wood and sugar maple wood chips, which "gives a nice sweetness to meat."
