I'll start off by saying that my boyfriend would rate Lela's a 5/5. I am a little more harsh when it comes to my reviews though. I think it is a very nice place. The locals love it and it is ALWAYS packed. The food is properly priced and the portions are large. It is a really nice lazy day... More

Good food, quick service. In and out in just over 30 mins. and I wasn't rushed. Also, believe it or not the server asked me how my food was, and I didn't have a mouthful.

Who can go wrong with a local shop doing things the way it used to be. Home cut fries, perfect season burger patties, fantastic service and decent prices. You won't be disappointed.

According to my last review it's been almost 4 years since I set foot in this place. I just happened to discover they were open in the evening recently. Some friends and I wanted to go for a casual coffee. Choices are limited in the downtown area in the evening. Usually it's the chain coffee shop or a pub. So... More

Seriously guys. Simply put - the food here is down home tasty comfort food just like momma used to make. The prices are VERY reasonable. This is a little restaurant tucked away in an older neighbourhood of Medicine Hat. It's been around for years (my dad used to skip school to go there in the 60's). Definitely worth plugging into...

I have eaten a number of times here. My favorite meal is breakfast here. Having said that lunch and dinner is great too. I guess if I could sum it up it would be consistently good. Another reason I like to go is the service. Very friendly staff and good service. Good home cooking, friendly atmosphere every time I go.
