“We have eaten at White Spot before, but this one was a disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

I ordered a double burger, the patties were fried and a bit burnt and dry. The fries were nothing special, not a lot of flavor and soggy, I didn't finish them, not worth the calories. My wife ordered Sweet Potato Fries, she didn't finish them either.

“Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

White Spot has something for everyone. This place can be quite busy and you might have to wait 10 to 15 minutes to get a table. Everyday food with all the usual suspects, burgers, great fries, kids meals, pasta,,,,a good family restaurant.

“amazing onion rings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

On a recent visit, my husband and I made a mid-day stop at this Saanichton location. We ordered onion rings to split ($5.99) and a French Dip Sandwich to split.

The onion rings were amazing -- the order had about 10 big rings that were freshly made. Very highly recommend these.

The sandwich overall was average. The meat was above average; bun was oasted, but small; no cheese or onions. Au jus was good and there was lots of it.

Service was above average, although it was 2:30 pm when we stopped in. (i.e. not a busy time).

Price was on the high side. Worth it for the onion rings, but probably not for the sandwich. Splitting a meal is definitely the way to go, if possible.

“Nothing extraordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

This White Spot is the same as any other as far as the menu goes. One thing that White Spot has been doing that I like is trying out new menu items seasonally. A couple of their most recent burger additions are pretty good. I find the food to taste fine, but perhaps a bit pricey for some of the menu options. I miss the fried chicken of the old days!
