An eclectic culinary ohmage to our northern-neighbors, the Maple Leaf Diner, is an award-winning restaurant in Dallas, Texas. The diner has been featured on multiple television and magazine networks with its unique menu with a Canadian flare and Breakfast served all day.
A family-friendly establishment, the Maple Leaf Diner is a great place for celebrations or just a fun dining experience.
We were excited to try the various items featured on many travel and food network shows.
Interested in their most popular items, we asked our server to suggest the best meals, and everyone made their picks. The oversized and deep-fried Canadian comfort food looked amazing when they set it before us.
The FlagShip Chicken Sandwich was featured on the Travel Channel’s You Gotta Eat Here. It’s grilled chicken and bacon (I had the bacon on the side), cheddar cheese, marinated tomatoes, lettuce, banana peppers, onions, dill sauce, topped with fried mozzarella sticks. Ask for a side extra dill sauce.
Baked fresh daily, Maple Leaf Diner offers cookies, scones, butter tarts, and pies. Muffins, stuffed cookies, milkshakes, ice cream, and floats are also available.
It was a fun experience, and the food was good, so we were glad we added Maple Leaf Diner to our itinerary. Even though I don’t believe it lived up to the hype, I have to give them proper due for creative presentation and a unique menu. Next time we’re in Dallas, we will likely make another visit.
