Before the days of fish 'n' chips, chicken 'n' chips occupied center stage, but the curtain closed when the fickle fowl began moonlighting with wanton waffles. Celebrate stars of the culinary arena with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of comfort food at The Big R Restaurant in Goulds.
This casual home cooking eatery lavishes locals with an extensive list of vittles, including its signature golden-fried fish 'n chips platter which satiates appetites with up to three battered bites ($7.99–$11.99). Doling out hearty portions of comfort cuisine such as the deep-fried half chicken 'n' chips ($10.99) or the full rack of barbecue ribs ($19.99) until the wee hours, The Big R ushers in loyal regulars with its easygoing atmosphere and cheerful service. Throngs of customers can feast on a variety of seafood specialties and flavoured wings in the expansive dining area that accommodates parties with ample elbowroom and toga sized bibs.
Gould's golden child also quells morning hunger with a diner-inspired breakfast menu from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. This home-style roster touts The Big R's famous fresh toutons, the Newfoundland delicacy of fried bread dough topped with butter, molasses, or syrup. Miniature members of the family (10 years and under) can build their muscles with the $5 kids menu, each meal arriving with smiley fries, a drink, and ice cream covered dumbbells.
