Deep Fried Mac and Cheese Balls
Crispy on the outside and ooey gooey mac n' cheese on the inside. 
I thought they were a fun and playful appetizer.

Coney Fries with Chili, cheese and sour cream
Lots of meaty chili on top of the fries and melted cheddar cheese. The chili was a little dry though - it was mostly just ground beef on top, which is nice - but I would have liked the sauce to soak into the fries to make everything tastier.

After seeing this place on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, I was pretty excited about checking out this diner. I had to start with the featured drink on Triple Ds:
Apple pie milkshake and caesar
Apple pie milkshake $7.50 and Mimosa $4
Awesome vanilla milkshake with chunks of cinnamon apple pie blended in. 
The pie was delicious in liquid form (as well as solid). 

Cornflake chicken burger
Cornflake chicken: double breasted with melted cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion + storehouse BBQ sauce on a sesame bun
The cornflakes add a nice hard and crunchy texture to the chicken breast.  The fries were okay.

The Lakeview clubhouse with poutine
The Lakeview clubhouse stack: classic double decker with cornflake chicken, strip bacon, lettuce, 
tomato + sweet chili mayo on whole wheat bread. Upgraded the side to classic poutine.
The clubhouse was pretty good: the chicken was juicy inside and crunchy outside. 
The poutine had real cheese curds, but a salty gravy in a small bowl. 

Nutella Cheesecake pie
Nutella cheesecake pie
The cheesecake was a nice rich chocolate hazelnut with a great pie crust.

Overall: The restaurant has the whole diner feel, but the service was modern and fast and the food was classic with a twist. I thought that it was okay overall.
