Mary Brown’s Dufferin Grand Re-Opening Event in Toronto

Mary Brown’s did a Grand Re-Opening of their Dufferin Location in Toronto on Saturday, June 25, 2016. It was a huge family-friendly public event with wide media coverage and celebrity appearances, along with a fried chicken feast to remember!

KISS 92.5’s Maurie was on-site to cover the day. Also, three Toronto FC (TFC) Players came by to sign some autographs.

To celebrate the Grand Re-Opening, the first 100 customers at the Mary Brown’s Dufferin location received a free Big Mary sandwich every week for a year!

There were huge lineups outside when I arrived, and I was told there were actually two people who camped outside the night before at 11PM! Now that’s some Mary Brown’s Love right there!

I was the first foodie to arrive. Since I was starving, I helped myself to a Big Mary combo, without knowing I will be eating it again later on!

I got the Spicy version of Big Mary which I really enjoyed. The only difference with the Spicy is the sauce had some spiciness to it.

I personally wished the chicken patty itself had spice though!

I was halfway thru the meal, when more foodies started to arrive. All of them were familiar faces in Toronto’s Instagram community: @gastroworld, @cj.noms, @foodelventures, @hypebelly,, @bakingzen and @acornerkitchen.
