B & B Fish & Chips

Posted by Staff / Listed on January 17, 2008 / review policy

B & B Fish & Chips is one of the many popular fish and chips spots in Leslieville. Also worth checking out are Reliable Fish 'N Chips and Woodgreen.

A neighbourhood ICON... best fish n' chips around! Have been in business for over 30 years.

Love these fish and chips! One of the best places in Toronto, and certainly the least expensive!

Just went there this afternoon!
$7 for a HUGE amount of chips with a nice, light and flaky piece o' fish.
As I had a bit of a hike to get home from B & B, I was worried that my lunch would be soggy upon arrival, but it survived and was still crispy and delicious!

Been around for more than 50 years and serves ythe excellent fish and chips. The place has not changed inside and outside much since I was a kid and couldn't see over the counter

Their fries are amazing. Big portion and worth the price at $2.50 I think.

This is my new favourite place. The price is very reasonable for what you get. The fish was tender, batter was crispy and wasn't too thick and it was served on top of proper hand cut fries. I also liked how they serve it to you in a newspaper cone which is such an old school touch that I love. Living in the downtown core it is a bit of a walk for me but it's worth it.

Meh, not too impressed. Way too greasy..and the grease was old and left that nasty film on the inside your mouth.

Fish and chips were really good but yes, very greasy. However, the grease wasn't that old -- unlike that which Gregory experienced.

It doesn't beat Reliable Fish and Chips though. The service is also less surly there.

Mmmm! I love this place! The fries are the best and I always get the Halibut! The owner is soo nice and cheery! I always wave when I pass by! A great neighbourhood institution!

Yum! I actually did some research on neighbourhood f&c shops and chose this one based on mostly positive reviews. The fries are DELISH! The fish is pretty great too. And for two of us, it cost less than a pizza ($15). Super friendly service.

When i was a pre-teen boy between thee ages of eight and twelve years old, i lived on Coady Avenue which is only two streets away from your b+b's fishnchip store. I think it's thee only fish and chip establishment that still uses lard to fry it's fish with, and thats why our friend Gregory has that taste of film left in his mouth. But dear Gregory, that's what makes B and B's SO VERY SPECIAL AND UNIQUE FOREVER AND ALWAYS B an B!

SEQUEL #2 COMMENT #13. It is the PIG'S FAT that gives B+B's it's Distinctive Flavour and Texture for SURE!! My parents Katarina and Jakob use't to use it smeared on top of bread with added salt and called it SCHMALTZBROT. My Dad had a 1970 FORD TORINO AUTOMOBILE

I miss WOODGREEN. B&B's fish is similar, but I don't care for their chips.

I think the french fries at B&B are AWESOME.
But the fish seems mushy.

In an ideal world, I would have the fish from Reliable and the Chips from B&B.

I've been going to B&B since I was a kid and going to school at Bruce. I even remember the original owner (the guy with the brushcut and he had a son named Derek or Darren)at least I'm pretty sure he was the origial owner. They sold it in 1972 to the family that has it now. On Halloween in the 60's the kids would line-up for what seemed like a mile and the shop would give out free cones of chips instead of candy. Oh how times haved changed. However the fish & chips are still Great. The prices keep going up though.

I'm hoping to revisit B+B'S tomorrow and then get to check out the Jone's Library too! It's been a couple of year's now since i last sat on that picnic bench outside of B+B'S there. And before that i went there with my brother John and quickly ate our B+B'S Treasure chest of goodie's from inside the front seat's of his car! We would have gone to Leslie Grove Park, but we were all ready to go and see a movie. Besides it was hot and humid and with the boost of energy B+B'S fish and chip's gave us, we were ready to ROCK! I'm looking very much forward to consuming B+B'S Fish + Chip's again after a two year disconnection i'm reaching to get myself plugged in to B+B'S on Thursday morrow!

Just went there and the fish was still raw and taste like jelly . Not to mention the owners were extremely rude.
First and last time there!!

The experience that Fergie is definitely not the usual. I can't imagine the owners at B&B being anything but completely friendly.

LOVE. We left Toronto 20 years ago, and never found fish'n'chips this good since. B&B forever!
Ender / September 16, 2015 at 09:06 am
I can echo the rudeness from fergie. The gentlemen owner has a serious attitude problem especially if you ask about the additional charge for tartar sauce (from a packet no less).

With that said the fish and scallops were tasty and they definitely know how to batter. Food is excellent!
