|St-hubert Express, Fredericton NB.|
Not only is St-Hubert new to fredericton, but so is Barry. Coming over from Halifax he started on a great foot with the help from his brother Denis. From what I could see everything was in full swing and the place was in tip top shape. Now this may also have been because the place is brand new, but hey, its the small things that count.

Possibly one of my favourite qualities of St-Hubert was how well organized they are. I am a very organized person myself and took a huge appreciation for both their ordering system as well as their garbage disposal.
As a walk in customer you follow a sign to the right side of the ribbon and for take out or pre-ordered meals you go over to the left. This way everyone doesn't have to wait in the same line and you don't get a jumble of people.
The garbage is my favourite part. What they do is have you bring your tray of food over to what they call their "Eco Station". At this point workers take over and sort your garbage for you. Instead of cleaning your plate and worrying about putting the right piece of waste in the right container, St-Hubert does it for you. This way it gets done right every time and and you (the paying customer) don't have to worry about a thing. You simply drop your tray off and hit the road! To me, this is great. All of the waste is being sorted the way it should and you don't have to lift a finger. For those who know me, know that dishes and I are not friends. St-Hubert and I, on the other hand, now are.
Something you can't find on the website, is the presentation of the food. All meals are served on a tray with a plate and fork. It gives a nice "going out to dinner" feel without having the wait or the waiter. I'm a plain Jane type of girl when it come to ordering out, so I decided to get the Chicken Breast Fillet Wrap. It came with two halves of a wrap, your choice of side (French fries, baked potato, sweet potato fries, rice pilaf, julienne vegetables, Caesar or garden salad), naturally I went with the unexpected French fries, coleslaw and a choice between fountain or bottled pop. Everything was really, really good but you are somewhat paying more for quality rather then quantity. All in all (the presentation, the good chicken, and fast service) was awesome, BUT I really was expecting just a littleeee more chicken.
If you've read anything on my blog before you know that I'm always looking for a bargain. St-Hubert is reasonable in their pricing considering the quality of the chicken and the presentation/service that you get. My meal came to a little over $12.00 in total, which really isn't bad for good quality chicken and a nice place to eat (especially where you don't have to clean off your dishes).
At the end of the night I left feeling like a million bucks with a full stomach. When it comes down to it, what more could you really ask for?
