ISO casual dining in Mississauga?

kwfoodiewannabe Oct 20, 2010 09:57 AM

Hello fellow Chowhounders!

Dad has finally tired of Milestone's! (thank g-d)

looking for somewhere to meet up Sat night for dinner in Mississauga. Closer to the 401 is better, but we are flexible.

Hopefully, something casual - prefer not to do Asian or Indian for this particular dinner. Price should be something close to Milestone's etc. (a bit higher is ok...) no chains, please.

Any favorites?

    Tiny Grano on Enfield Place, behind the Novatel at Burnamthorpe & Hurontario, is a friendly husband & wife run Italian-Canadian restaurant with reliable and competent cooking. Apps are overpriced and watch out for the pushed extras. Mains are reliably superior to local fare and competitively priced. The owner's special desserts are not-to-be-missed.

      Peter's on Eglinton----great home cooking. North side of Eg at Tomken.

          Third for Peter's on Eglington. Good variety, large portions, reasonable prices, and all tasty.

          If you're and your dad are meat lovers, you should make a visit to McAdams, a Serbian restaurant with an unlikely name in a very unlikely location in an industrial park. Lots of tasty grilled meats and sausages, schnitzel, etc.

            My favorite in Mississauga is Saucy's in Streetsville (about 5-10 minutes from 401/Erin MIlls) Food is really good..would really recommend trying it out..
            Another decent second option is Gabriels on Mississauga/Erin Mills or JJ's in the same plaza...Gabriels has decent pastas, etc with pool tables...JJ's Thai/Japanese in a nice setting...but still vote for Saucy's :)

              Alot of stuff at JJ is somewhat bland or just "so so" but I had a really good thai red curry shrimp dish there. It was surprisingly good, great flavors.. Their pad thai has been WAY too sweet lately though
