We're bringing our slice of Canada to Dallas!
The Delaurier Family dove into the restaurant business in 1967 when  Betty and Norman Delaurier opened Betty & Norm’s Pizza & Chicken Palace in Belle River, Ontario. 
Flash-forward over 50 years and three-generations of the Delaurier Family are restauranteurs (one even currently owns a Tim Horton’s in Canada)!  Maple Leaf Diner is the collaboration between Debra Delaurier and Michael Delaurier; both experienced restauranteurs native to Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  The aunt/nephew duo couldn’t find food in Dallas that felt like home hence they opened Maple Leaf Diner in 2015 where they’ve been serving a little slice of Canada here in Dallas!  Our features include traditional diner delights (our Pot Roast was featured on Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here”) with a sprinkle of our Canadian Favourites such as: Poutine (hand-cut French fries topped with cheese curds and smothered in house-made beef gravy), Canadian Peameal Bacon (the REAL Canadian Bacon, cured in-house), Butter Tarts, Nanaimo Bars. and a sprinkle of requested southern favorites such as Chicken, Bacon and Waffles.  Thank you for dining with us, Eh!
