The Crown and Lion feels like one of those places you can see yourself coming back to any night of the week. The Crown and Lion has been a favorite for many Bramptonians because of the friendly and inviting atmosphere. Nearing Brampton’s border at Financial and Steeles, this pub doesn’t fall in line with the usual dark toned aesthetic that most pubs seem to have. With the Crown and Lion, right when you walk in you’ll quickly notice how well-lit the entire joint is and the bright colour scheme will also grab your attention. They have a lot of great theme nights, including Monday nights for wings and Wednesday nights for pub trivia. My personal favourite and main recommendation is their wings, but if you’re looking to grab something to share with friends, I also suggest trying their spinach and artichoke dip or the wings. Either way, you’ll leave knowing you had great food in a great place.

4) J. Red & Co.
Definitely one of the most modern restaurants in Brampton, from the atmosphere to the innovative menu. Located on Vodden and Main is one of the gems in the city. Chef Jason Rosso is the mastermind behind the menu and if his name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because he has appeared on such TV shows as Restaurant Makeover, Recipe to Riches and the Marilyn Dennis Show. He is known for offering familiar food with a twist and the menu does not disappoint. What’s better than going out on a date and experimenting with a new style of food you have never tried before? You can try things like smoked cheddar mac ‘n cheese, egg rolls and crispy fried cauliflower ‘wings.’ My favourite is the Bob and Doug burger. Even if you have nothing to talk about, you can still talk about the food!
The Sul Irmaos Smokehouse is located in the heart of downtown Brampton and specializes in Portuguese southern fusion cuisine. The restaurant is known for its smoked meat, which is smoked (low and slow) and it was even featured on the Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here. Must eat dishes include the beef eater (southern slow smoked brisket, deep fried okra and shrimp and collard greens, served with Creole mustard, house gravy and Caesar dressing) and the pulled pork and Beanasaurus (southern slow smoked pulled pork, homemade mama’s chill, fresh cut creamy coleslaw and fried mac and cheese bites).
I don’t know if there’s another spot in Brampton that can be deemed the hidden gem other than Tracks Brewpub. Tucked away right at Queen and Chapel, Tracks offers a unique nightlife experience. The place is quite large so you have the option of enjoying the best of two worlds; you can go there for a quaint evening with just one other person or you can grab a few friends to enjoy the bar and the live band. On top of it all, Tracks brews their own beer, so they offer a chance to try something different. But if you’re there for the food (and you should definitely be there for the food) then I recommend trying their wings—which are absolutely massive—and perhaps even their deep fried pickles. The place also offers great calamari. Tracks tops the list as a place that will provide you with the complete pub experience: great food, friendly company and a low-maintenance night out.
Baker’s Jerk quickly left an exceptional impression on us when it comes to their fried chicken. Located at Sunnyvale Gate and Bovaird, the chicken at this little spot will hit your flavor palate with a taste of homemade cooking that can be hard to compete with. I also have to commend Baker’s Jerk House for coming through on a fried chicken recipe that has the perfect amount of salt and oil and felt far from being over-saturated. When it came to the actual chicken, it was perfectly moist and flavorful. You can get your fried chicken with a side of rice and peas and I highly recommend getting the oxtail gravy to go along with it.
