On the way to Kelowna or Kamloops and need a quick bite to eat? Stop in Merritt and you'll find a place where the service is friendly, the portions are huge, and the prices are reasonable. Home Restaurant is a favourite stop for our car club's annual road trip to Kelowna.
The milkshakes are pretty good, a decent size and pretty tasty.
Pretty good Caesar salad, loads of parmesan cheese.
Looking for something to stop your heart, try the Monte Christo - $10.49. Ham, Turky, & Swiss in what is essentially two slabs of French Toast. My pal Justin has this just about everytime we go there....I think it has a million calories.
Baked Mac & Cheese - $9.49. Now, you may have read my review on Boston Pizza and are wondering why I'm not tearing Home Restaurant a new one. Well, unlike Boston Pizza, Home Restaurant isn't promoting their Mac & Cheese as anything gourmet. It is what it is - mac & cheese, dressed with cheese sauce, baked with cheese on top. And it tastes like cheddar because they use cheddar, not just the powdered variety from Kraft (actually, for $0.99 a box, Kraft isn't really that bad as long as you don't think of it as actual cheese). Home Restaurant serves baked macaroni (actually, when I went, they didn't have the conventional elbow noodles we call macaroni) and cheese for about 10 bucks, Boston Pizza serves a $0.99 can of Chef Boyardee baked in a handfull of Kraft's Tex-Mex for 15 bucks.
Mountain of Mushroom - $12.29. I think there's a burger in there somewhere.
Fish and Chips for breakfast, why not? 'Home' Cod and Chips - $10.79. The pieces aren't huge or anything, but then again, it's only 10 bucks. The fish is pretty good and comes with a mountain of fries...you'll be full.
We go there every year so it goes without saying whether I'll go back or not. If there were a location here in Vancouver, I'd probably go.
