Best lunch between Toronto and Huntsville (not Weber's)

I'll be driving from Hamilton to Huntsville on Saturday and if nobody has a better suggestion, I'll probably have lunch at Memphis BBQ in Woodbridge.

I've been to Weber's and I want to try something else.

    If you're coming from Hamilton, you'll probably want lunch about the time you reach King City. I suggest Hogan's Inn, a charming place with character, and not too expensive for lunch. Turn east off Highway 400 along King Road, and go a few blocks - it's on the south side at the intersection of Keele Street at a traffic light. We've been there for lunch, and for a wedding function, and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Here's a photo display -


    ...and a few details

      Other threads on Mike Love's say, "Great food, lousy service with a snarl." If he really ranted about being unappreciated, I'm a little leery about being near him with sharp knives around. Barrie is also hosting the Brews and BBQ Festival and that could easily turn into a longer stop.

      I think Bracebridge is about an hour south of Novar, but it may make a great day trip.

        If you can last until Bracebridge, the Inn At the Falls has a great patio, and fairly decent upscale pub food with good beers on tap. Nice view of the falls, and very relaxed atmosphere.

          Maybe the BBQ rib place in Barrie? Someone will have to help me out with the name, I've never been (although I'd like to go).

            I believe it's called Mike Love's BBQ and Smokehouse.

              he ranted on here a few months back about being unappreciated and essentially shutting down once the lease ran out. might not be open still....
