Boston Pizza - opening at Lakeshore and Leslie

Boston Pizza is moving into one of the spaces behind the plaza at Lakeshore/Leslie - they apparently are just waiting for their liquor license.

I've never eaten there - it looks kind of chain-y and gross. Is it OK or pretty bad?

Lakeshore Restaurant
2390 Lake Shore Blvd W, Toronto, ON M8V1C3, CA

  1. Pretty bad. Undercooked, overpriced pizza.

    1. Their food is ridiculously high in sodium. Of the chain restaurants, it's one of the worst.

        The only constant of BP is the bad food -- I guess that's why it appeals to the masses.

        They must have controlling interest in the paper pulp industry -- I've had their pizza, wings and burgers and they all tasted like cardboard!

          Glad I'm not the only person who thinks it's oversalted. Most things are too high in sodium, but at Boston Pizza you taste every grain of extra salt.

        2. This is probably the wrong board to look for a fair opinion on chains since you know you'll get the chorus of "chains suck". I don't agree, not all do. But Boston Pizza definitely does. (warning -- if you're in the U.S., you'll see it signed as "Boston's The Gourmet Pizza" -- same chain).

          You'll get better food at Jack Astor's. Yes, that bad.

          1. Friends don't let friends eat at Boston Pizza.

            Drive a few extra minutes East to Queen Margherita Pizza or North to Danforth Pizza House (for takeout).

                I am sorry to hear this. Boston Pizza is possibly the worst Canadian chain to grace our province.
