HALIFAX – The Chickenburger, a 69-year-old Halifax restaurant, has been selected as a hidden gem by employees at the Delta Halifax and Delta Barrington hotels. During the past year, employees at Delta’s hotels in Halifax have been compiling recommendations on the best places to eat, browse, shop, relax et cetera, as part of the new Delta Recommends program. The employee-driven initiative enables staff to share their insider’s interests, tastes and experiences of their city with visiting guests. In fact, the program’s database is home to thousands of hidden gems recommended by Delta staffers in communities across Canada.
The Chickenburger, founded in 1940 by the Innes family, is known locally as the oldest drive-in restaurant in Canada, specializing in home-style burgers, milkshakes, fresh haddock and chips and their signature chicken burger. “The Chickenburger and its team of dedicated employees have been serving Maritimers for more than 69 years, and we welcome all visitors to indulge in our infamous chicken burger,” said general manager Colin MacDonald. “We are so pleased that Delta Halifax and Delta Barrington thought of us as one of Nova Scotia’s hidden gems.”
The Discovery Centre and Sugah! Confectionery & Ice Cream Emporium were also selected as hidden gems in Halifax. “Delta Recommends is a great way to provide our guests with the chance to experience the best of Halifax through the eyes of those who live, work and play there,” said Stuart Jolliffe, regional vice-president of Delta Hotels and Resorts, Atlantic Canada Region. “Our employees have a wealth of knowledge about their communities and this is our way of sharing it with our guests.”
Employees at all 44 Delta Hotels and Resorts submitted their favourite local destinations, and guests can find detailed information on the hidden hotspots in the city they are visiting during their stay at Delta properties. For more info click here.
