All three are available in a combo (a $10 value). Hintonburger also hosts outdoor seating where diners can consume unlimited oxygen and Sasquatch sightings.

Nando's Flame-Grilled Chicken, founded in South Africa in 1987, brings Portugal's peri-peri flame-grilled chicken to the Vancouver area with only the bare minimum of laser lights and smoke-shrouded, two-way mirrors. Discovered by Portuguese explorers in Africa in the distant days of maritime exploration, peri-peri is a fiery chili pepper that adds a kick of capsaicin to any cuisine, clucker-related or not. Nando's fresh chicken breasts luxuriate in their peri-peri marinade for 24 hours, resulting in dishes with a slate of Scoville-scale-scorching spice levels—mild lemon and herb, medium, hot, and the daredevil-only extra hot. Step up to Nando's counter to order from the menu of sandwiches, pitas, wraps, salads, and peri-peri chicken. Enjoy a grilled-to-order peri-peri half-chicken with a side ($11.39) such as spiced rice or hearty coleslaw, or bite around basted bones with a dozen peri-peri chicken wings with a side ($9.99). Nando's also sports peri-peri chicken breast sandwiches or pitas ($8.49–$10.79), chicken or veggie whole wheat wraps with a side ($8.49–10.79), and veggie burgers or pitas ($8.49–$10.79), as well as salads and salad meals ($3.99–$9.99) for lovers of leaves of lettuce.
Voted one of the 10 best restaurants in Ottawa by Ottawa Magazine, this rural eatery in the heart of Ottawa Valley grows, forages, prepares, and presents fare straight from organic Castlegarth Farm Gardens and other local producers. The menu reflects the season's finest bounty, and everything in the restaurant is homemade, from the bread to the ice cream to the elf-crocheted tablecloths. Though vittles vary daily, past appetizers have included a homemade charcuterie plate and fresh Prince Edward Island oysters ($6–$14). Former main courses, such as roast chicken breast with summer-vegetable ratatouille and roasted potatoes, and the Castlegarth grilled beef flank steak with sautéed artichokes and porcini mushrooms ($20–$28), have been served alongside desserts that included a dark-chocolate tart with peanut-butter mousse and peaches ($6–$14). Diners can discuss alternate endings to their Winston Churchill fan fiction while perusing the vast wine menu, which features both Canadian and international wines ($25–$150 a bottle).
