PRINCE GEORGE, B.C., CANADA, June 8, 2015 – In the movies, co-stars deserve equal billing. It’s the same for the rejuvenated Ricky’s All Day and Fatburger serving Buffalo’s world-famous wings and tenders in a co-facility in Prince George. So whether you’re wishing for a delicious breakfast, a delectable entrée from an inventive new family-friendly menu, savory finger-licking chicken wings, or to indulge yourself with one of Canada’s biggest and best burgers with all the fixin’s, we’ve got you covered.
Located in the popular Westgate Plaza near major shopping attractions, the newly redesigned retro-style restaurant facility features a 52-seat boutique Ricky’s located side-by-side with an expanded 24-seat Fatburger that also serves Buffalo’s world-famous wings and tenders. Attractive new signage quickly draws patrons to the food service they crave.
“We have the best of all worlds here for our guests who have plenty of dining options served amid energized surroundings that appeal to all of their senses with music, neon, and more,” said Tracy Frazer, Director of Marketing & Creative Services for Fatburger Canada. “Of course, the common denominators are high-quality food products paired with customer-oriented service and value for the dollar.”
The star of the show on the Ricky’s side of the house is a mouth-watering, inventive new menu with many fresh-made choices blending the latest popular tastes and ingredients with many traditional favourites. Highlights include delicious in-house-roasted beef, prime rib, turkey or pork, garden-crisp salads, 100% Certified Angus Beef steaks, and sumptuous seafood. There’s also a terrific kids’ menu and club with lots of great things for children to enjoy while they’re at Ricky’s.
Served until 4 PM daily, Fatburger’s all-day breakfast special satisfies just about any appetite with three tasty options in L, XL and XXL portions. Each offers two eggs, cooked over easy or scrambled, with home-style hash browns and Texas toast. Order the large entrée and choose from two strips of maple bacon, or two breakfast sausage links, or two fluffy buttermilk pancakes. The XL lets you double up with two of the side order choices, or pick the XL and enjoy all three. Other options include assorted breakfast sandwiches. Wash it all down with orange juice, apple juice or coffee.
There’s also a Buffalo’s Express to satisfy guests with a wide assortment of world-famous wings and tenders tossed in a choice of 13 signature sauce creations, ranging from mild to extra spicy, including tantalizing options like Asian Sesame, Honey Garlic, Coconut Jerk, and the aptly named Death Valley. Guests can even mix the signature sauces to create their own one-of-a-kind, flavorful wing experience, and enjoy them with salads, fries and other items.
Made with fresh, never frozen, hand pressed, cooked-to-order AAA Canadian Alberta beef – the highest quality beef of any burger chain in Canada – Fatburgers can be enjoyed with all the usual condiments, plus many inspired choices such as chili, bacon, mushrooms, guacamole, jalapeños, an assortment of cheeses, and even a fried egg.
Fatburger accompaniments include fresh cooked, trans fat-free skin-on fries, yam fries, homemade onion rings and a Caesar salad. Only the freshest produce, including hand-cut lettuce, centre-cut beefsteak tomatoes and fresh-cut onions, qualifies to be served at Fatburger.
For hungrier patrons, there’s a one-half-pound Kingburger, a three-quarter-pound Double Fatburger, and the baddest burger on the block – the Triple Kingburger. This monster of a burger features three patties (a pound and a half) of hand-packed, specially seasoned Angus beef served on an artisan sesame seed bun with lettuce, deli dill pickles and your choice of four cheeses, plus tomato, onion, and any of our other popular toppings.
