I live off the drive and usually just stay in the area due to the various different types of food offered. I used to live in Victoria and could always be found at the Noodle Box & have been heading over to Kits to raid them every so often.

Any recommendations for restaraunts in Richmond, Burnaby, the North Shore or on Main Street, Broadway area, 4th Avenue?? I'm open for any kind of new food with the exception of vegetarian. Preferrably the spicier the better.

I love chicken wings, some places rock, some places not so much, Boston Pizza wings Hot spicy wings are bland and just orange, not that great, Zawas on the drive has some damn good Hot sauce wings that are crispy but their service or lack thereof make me look for some new wings places

Is that just off of Granville & Davie? If so I have been there a long time ago, I can't remember how it was, but with a name like Wings how can you go wrong??

Since you like wings, you should try their deep fried chicken wings (basically what people go there for) and, if you don't mind raw beef, get the butter beef (I personally prefer this dish over their chicken wings).

Fat Burger should be called Ass Burger. Terrible, overpriced food. I even went a second time to a different location. Assier than the first time.
