Ace Burpee Talking About Sals

"The Cheese Nip ... top 5 all time favourite things in the world!"

00:00 / 00:47

Why does Ace Burpee love Sals? Press play and hear.


When it comes to FRESH Beef, we take it seriously and have for over 90 years! We purchase only Manitoba Beef, which means less travel, more humane, farm to table FRESHness. We craft all of our patties FRESH, every day, in our commissary kitchen, to guarantee our beef is never frozen, seasoned perfectly and portioned just right! Salisbury House and the Nip are proudly Manitoban, and only FRESH Manitoba Beef will do for you!

Our eggs are the cornerstone of all of our breakfasts, from our classic breakfast nips to our delicious skillets and omelettes and everything in-between. This is why we only source eggs from Manitoba farms that follow a rigorous screening and cleaning process, ensuring we use only Grade A FRESH Manitoba eggs.


At Salisbury House, we are proud to partner with Manitoba farms that share this same commitment.


Farm to table FRESHNESS is our priority for you!

At Salisbury House, we work hard to deliver the FRESHest produce to all of our restaurants, every day, with many of our produce items being grown right here in Manitoba.


Whether you are looking for a delicious bowl of fruit to complete your favourite Sals platter or desire that perfect crunch of iceberg lettuce when you bite into a Mr Big Nip, or one of our super salads, you can be proud to know it is our priority to source only the finest produce Manitoba offers.

Every day at 5am in our commissary bakery, our highly skilled bakers mix natural ingredients like flour, milk and real butter to create all the quality baked goods made with no preservatives you enjoy at Salisbury House.


Our classic recipes, perfected over decades, call for only FRESH ingredients ensuring that all of our products including our buns and bread, pancakes and quiche, Classic Red Velvet, Giant Cinnamon Buns,  and Wafer Pie have a delicious, FRESH, homemade taste, just like they always have.


This commitment is clear with every bite. Only the best for you!

The Salisbury House restaurant chain has been serving quality food for over 90 years in Manitoba Canada. Known locally as Sals, the chain is considered an iconic Winnipeg institution. The first Salisbury house restaurant opened in downtown Winnipeg in 1931 by founder Ralph Erwin, who named his new eatery after the Salisbury Steak. Erwin was not fond of the term hamburger so he named his now famous burger a Nip making reference to a small nip or bite of Salisbury Steak.

In 1979, Erwin sold his majority interest in the company to a group of local business owners, who brought the ownership of Salisbury House back to Winnipeg, from the previous Montreal based owners. This group included majority shareholders, Earl and Cheryl Barish. In 2006, Mr. Barish became President and CEO of Salisbury House of Canada Ltd. Currently, he serves as Chair of The Board. The balance of ownership comprised local business owners

Currently, there are 8 FULL SERVICE Family Restaurant locations, and the Sals Market. Sals also operates in two golf courses, runs a car hop, offers full catering services, cake decorating, private event hosting, and more!
