Supporting our local restaurants – Winnipeg Free Press


Hello, time traveler!
This article was published 23/3/2021 (326 days ago), the information it contains may therefore no longer be up to date.

Last month I wrote about Santa Lucia Pizza on Main Street to encourage people to support restaurants in the area.

It’s so important to hang out with local businesses because we’ve all had a hard time over the past year and need to help each other. So here are two more local restaurant recommendations you might want to check out.

(There are many more great options in the area, of course, but space limits me to a few.)

Salisbury House is a Winnipeg institution. Founded by Ralph Erwin in 1931, the small restaurant survived the Depression years, expanded to many locations and the rest, as they say, is history.

Sals, as it is called, is famous for its nips (burgers) and also offers delicious homemade breakfasts, hearty skillets, fries, salads and desserts.

It offers a take-out menu online, and as I write this, several of its locations are open for meals at limited capacity.

The Sals Market at 1800 King Edward Street offers ready-to-eat, heat-and-eat meals, wholesale produce, and baked goods. Its website says it typically has a dozen prepared meal options available daily.

My husband and I tried the chicken souvlaki meal with Greek salad and rice and found the portions generous and tasty. We also enjoyed the Mexican chicken meal.

Other selections are available: Chicken Pot Pies, Butter Chicken with Jasmine Rice, Lasagna, BBQ Pulled Pork, BBQ Baby Back Ribs and more.

Selections vary, so you’ll need to call ahead or check online at to see what is available. Call 204-633-6301 for Sals Market or 204-694-0931 for Sals Restaurant on Leila Avenue to inquire about delivery options or restaurant regulations.

The Shooters Family Restaurant is located at 2731 Main Street. At press time, it was open at 25% capacity and offers takeout, takeout or delivery through various options.

Shooters offers salads and various types of burgers including Reuben burgers, chicken burgers and more. Sides include sweet potato fries, poutine, root vegetable fries and borscht.

Other dishes include beer battered fish, quesadillas, wraps, pitas, sandwiches and more.

Dinner options include Ukrainian dinner, pork cutlets, veal parmesan, chicken and shrimp bowls and others.

Visit for the full menu or call 204-339-2326 for hours, dining options and any regulatory updates.

Stay safe and well.
