Back in March of 2020, I hit a slick patch in a freak snow storm in Winfield, causing my car to continue going straight around a turn, which brought a sideswipe collision into my life, leaving a nasty dent in the side of my beautiful baby!!!

While I knew it would be covered under a claim, I searched around for a body shop which could complete my ICBC Claim for a reasonable price, the shop I brought it to in Kelowna and those I called around to in the valley wanted to use only new parts, however, when I spoke to Roy, he immediately suggested he’d be on the lookout for used – like new – parts to repair the banged up side!! He brought the costs down by at least $2000’s! There were also a few paint chips in the front he fixed as he went!!

Not only that, Roy is a lovely person to deal with, having an amazing sense of humor and great stories! And ON TOP of it all, he completely cleaned & detailed every inch of my car and removed every speck of sawdust, dirt & other grime from my car, leaving me with a brand new looking & feeling car! I couldn’t be more happier with this lovely man and his incredible service!!!

Much love, and as much as I hope I don’t ever have to go back there, I know where to go and where to send all my friends 🙂 HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Brought my car in for new tires, they gave me a great deal on 4 Firestones and a wheel alignment! Just be prepared to spend more time then their estimated wait time, as they are a very popular shop and they are quick to help when emergencies arrive. Reahd & Joe are AWESOME!

Olive Garden Italian Restaurant

20080 Langley Bypass, Langley City, BC V3A 9J7

Excellent atmosphere, cheerful and gracious staff, amazing service and BREADSTICKS!!! Salad was delicious, sauce creamy and pasta cooked to perfection! Seated right next to an old style window with quaint curtains, Ivy covering the wall outside, it was truly an experience. Oh and did I mention…breadsticks!!!

McDonald’s

2120 Harvey Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 6G8

The last time I was at this location the fries were greasy and saltless, but I gave it another chance as this location had always been good, even at 2 in the morning! Ordered a large fries and three cheeseburgers, fries came out hot and perfectly salted, cheeseburgers were warm and sauce was evenly spread. However, if you’re gonna have an ‘Any Lane Anytime’ sign, and you’re gonna crate off one lane, maybe turn it off?

Chipper cheery staff, however the food was horrible. I’m not sure what they’ve mixed into their onions on the buddy burger, but it looked like celery and when eaten, the texture felt like chewing on a dried stalk of buck choy or dried corn stalk.

Sadly however, the quality of the food seems to be declining, room temperature fries are graced with plastic cheese, a bare sprinkling of onions, and the portions have lost at least 6 large waffle fries. Staff are still friendly, however they seem overwhelmed.

Tonics Pub & Grill

Medium prices, with specials every night! Personally, I find their steak sandwich to be more a crouton and steak sandwich, but the quality of the meat almost made up for it. Their beef dip is delicious and french fries tasty! Definitely a hot-spot to hit up for a night out! My friend is lactose intolerant to cheese only, and the kitchen staff were quite gracious in making her a salad perfect for her! And while our lovely waitress was brand new, she did an IMPECCABLE job. Koodos! And while we didn’t stick around for it, trivia night on Mondays looks like a whole lot of fun!

The Keg Steakhouse & Bar

1825 UNDERHILL ST, KELOWNA, BC V1X 8G8

★★★★★

Step into a homey lit parlor with a contemporary feel, sporting designer sound control seating allowing for a private night out. Elegant respectful service along with amazing food makes this an experience to be looked forward to. Prices match service and quality, while portions on a medium size, the taste of each bite making you want to savor it instead of scarfing it down. Meat was cooked to perfection for both me and my partner, even though the way we requested it was on opposite ends of the spectrum. Well done!

PS…(I had mine rare ;-))

Last year, we froze sitting on top of the Kelly O’s patio, this year, we were toasty warm while still enjoying a beautiful ambiance. The server was admirably gracious in turning down our request to move tables around, explaining that they’ve tried it multiple times, explaining it doesn’t provide any more space. Props for diplomacy!
