Grilled chicken sounds good so we decided to go here; one order was the chicken burger: messy, messy, messy, the red sauce was dripping as it was eaten; if we have had that meat with rice, the sauce would have been ok; but with a...bread? what are you thinking?; we ordered also chicken pitta: at the time of the order they asked only one question: hot or mild sauce? we said mild. Guess what. The pitta had plenty, plenty of mayonnaise. Disgusting. Ask the client next time, like other restaurants do. It was so disappointing (the whole thing)More

I’ve never written a review but this experience has been bothering me for a few days. My sister and I went to Galito on Friday evening around 6, both buying meals for our family to take home . We like to try out new places...and figured flame grilled chicken sounds good . We both ordered the meal that comes with a few pieces of chicken (wings) and kebob , and two sides ( we chose fries and salad ) we were told 15 min, actually took 45 , well at least it’s fresh . First off , the chicken was disgusting ,I’ve never seen chicken not be able to come off the bone , and had a bluish colour looked like it was really old The chicken Kebob was raw and red in the middle , the fries were raw and almost white Looking, the salad was brown . Everything had to be thrown out . What a waste of $$ money and time . I don’t mind paying or waiting for food to be made as long as it’s worth it . This was one of the worst fast food experiences. I don’t know how anyone can serve food like this , people can get sick .More

I love the grill stuff, specially Galito;s and finally they are in Kitchener as well. Its recently open and the operator is still trying to overcome launch issues but service was still quick and food was excellent.

I met a friend for lunch here a couple of weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised. The grilled veggies were tasty, healthy, and not all just peppers and onions like many places. The "heat" was just as ordered, and delish. I ordered the chicken sandwich,...and it was actually chicken, not processed ground chicken like the golden arches. Real chicken. I had my choice of heat on that too, and although it was a bit sloppy to eat (because of all the sauce), it was really tasty. Not sure why there is a perception that Piri piri (actually originally peri peri) is only Portuguese, as it originated in Africa, as did this restaurant chain. I am already booked to meet another friend here for supper in a couple of weeks, and am thinking of heading down there (from Kitchener, wish there was one closer than Milton!) tonight for supper. Fabulous food, service, and very reasonable prices for what you get. I was stuffed for under $15.More

Good food but tends to be expensive for chicken. Ask to have it cooked well done. Cook tends to leave it white. Peri fries and coleslaw are delish

We went here in passing as we were looking for something closers to home as I usually drive to Mississauga to get my Portuguese chicken. We are from Georgetown. My husband suggested we give this place a try. There was nobody in the place my...gut was telling me to leave. sure enough my gut was right!!! After a few bites into my chicken I was running out of meat really fast which means they cheap go down the meat because in NO way was that a half a chicken! Their hot sauces tasted horrible, no good flavour... it just tasted like cayenne pepper in a liquid. Totally gross and un unedible. Potatoes were Raw so couldn't even eat them!!!!!! The rice was also disgusting so I couldn't eat that either. Basically we had to go back out and still go to my Portuguese place in Mississauga to pick up dinner because I threw most of my dinner out! From now on I'll just keep going to my place in Mississauga Brasas! Do yourself a favour and don,the eat at this rip off joint! What a waste of $$.More

I've ordered from Galito's several times and it's always fantastic! The chicken is delicious, the sides are generous portions and those Peri Peri Fries they make are AMAZING!!!!! I'm a wimp for spice- but these are worth the heat! Their $10 lunch special is excellent-...enough food to share between two people.More

I decided to grab some chicken from Galito's on my way back to the office this evening....never tried it before. Was I ever pleasantly surprised!! The chicken was very moist, not dry or burnt as some other reviewers have said!! Also it's available in four...levels of spicy ranging from lemon pepper to Extra Hot!! I had the mild spice and it was perfect. The grilled veggies were also cooked perfectly and has a nice flavour. All of this for a very reasonable $11 plus tax and it was served with a smile. I'll be back for sure :-)More

Have been going here for just over a year now and there $10 lunch specials are fantastic. They now have a $5 burger and fries special on Tuesdays. The chicken and kebabs are always cooked to perfection and grilled veggies and rice amazing. Nando's may...need to watch out as Galitos is just as good or better.More

We made the mistake of assuming these guys specialize in "Portuguese" BBQ chicken I think because Piri Piri sauce features prominently on their menu. Sadly, the Portuguese chicken places are limited in the town of Milton after the closing of Portalia's and Lisboa. It turns...out Galito's is actually a chain that originated in South Africa! Pardon my ignorance, but I wasn't even aware that BBQ chicken was what the South Africans were even renowned for in terms of their contributions to international cuisine! The Italians give us Pasta, the Japanese have their sushi, the US with their burgers and fries and now, South Africa has Nelson Mandela, diamonds and BBQ'd chicken! Who would have thunk?!? In any case, never being ones to shy away from something new, we decided to try Galito's in Milton. We came in to order take out on a Friday night at around 630-7pm and the place was absolutely empty which should have set the alarm bells ringing for us. We ordered the family platter for $46 with another half chicken on the side for an extra $13. The meal came with 1 whole chicken, 2 kebabs, 4 wings, two large sides (which we got Peri rice and roasted potatoes) along with four breadsticks. The young lady working the takeout counter was nice enough and asked whether I wanted the accompanying sauce "hot". I enjoy a little spice, so I of course said sure! She also warned me they the chicken was marinated in their hot sauce. We got the meal home to our family and was anxious to dig in as it really did smell delicious on the ride home. Well unfortunately, the smell was really the only thing good to come out of that bag. ALL the chicken was extremely dry or basically burnt to a crisp. The kebabs were like pieces of leather and the wings were so small And dried out, it looked like they came off a pigeon rather than a chicken. The extra chicken breast we ordered was "hot" but was inedible because it was sooooooo spicy! Don't get me wrong, I love spicy food, but this didn't even have taste and seemed to be doused in hot sauce just to call it "hot" and was almost painful to eat (we ended up tossing most of it out). The roast potatoes looked like They had been sitting under a heat lamp the entire day and the rice was dry and undercooked and flavourless. Needless to say, Our first foray into South African food was not a good one. I want to try to attribute it to being a one off and a bad night for the restaurant, but many of our friends here in Milton have had similar experiences and were not happy with their meals. Doubt we will be returning for a second time. Not sure how these guys have stayed open for as long as they have as I liked the Japanese Sushi place that was there before them. Galito's claims to specialize in fresh grilled BBQ chicken, but based on our meal, it would seem they are better at over cooking and burning their food. I'm not sure if their Brampton location is better, but I suspect these guys in Milton are struggling to establish a faithful clientele and loyal customer base to remain open and prosperous for much longer. Too bad as there is clearly a demand for a BBQ chicken place in Milton as an alternative to Swiss chalet or KFC. Great concept, but execution needs definite work...More
