Cheap eats and drinks at X-Site Grill, one block West of Hastings and Willingdon. However I don't like how they don't have set closing hours and it fluctuates all the time.

For some great food at good prices check out Nathan's Grill, a little North of 8Rinks near some soccer fields. Their main business is catering for the tv/film industry, and I think it shows in their tasty menu. Drinks are mid-priced. They also have a good multiple LCD TV setup inside for sports.

I sometimes go to the Hop and Vine Pub in the Greystone/IGA complex near the Burnaby Mountain Golf Course. It's not a great place but they sometimes offer Irish Natchos (Patchos, ie: waffle cut potato fries). Can you get Patchos anywhere else? They used to have it at Kelly O'Brien's in Surrey but they closed.

Stay away from Howie's Bistro and Bar on Lougheed and Bainbridge. Horrible, horrible food and overpriced drinks. Other places I'm not fond of anymore are the BCIT Pub and Mountain Shadow Pub. the BCIT Pub has some ok food but it's always hit and miss quality wise, and service is always slow. Mountain Shadow is just plain dirty.

I found a decently good pub with good wings!
The Soho bar and grill on Lougheed and Bainbridge.

I went there on Thurs night... and they had the wings special.. 15 wings for $4.50. That's pretty cheap comparing it to paying 10bucks for a pound of wings at a restaurant which comes out dry and small. These wings were big and juicy.

The beers were pretty cheap too... but too bad they don't do pitchers which is the downside of this all... but my buddy and I ordered 3 sleeves each of the Okanagan Spring Pale Ale... and our bill came up to 32 bucks with the wings included in it.

I have not had the wings there, but I have found Soho Bar and Grill to have disappointing burgers and pastas. I have eaten there three times and now try to avoid it, even though its quite close to my home.

The Dew is pretty fun during the weekend (the only times I've ever went). Free coat check ftw! haha.

I heard that on Fridays/Saturdays the Foggy Dew has a cover charge, dress code, and coat check charge. Is that true?

coat check is by donation
and there is a dress code but i dont think the dew really cares --you're not allowed hoodies, hats and i think gangster wear?

Foggy Dew in Coquitlam tries to be a club on the weekend. My brother and I went one weekend about a year ago and the wait to get inside was atrocious. I'm sorry but you're either a pub or a club. Make up your mind.
