Would be hard to find a better place for eclectic hot dogs and gourmet tater tots! While the menu seems geared towards late night munchies we had a fantastic lunch here. The sandwich menu is limited but my pulled pork was as good as any...More

One of the best falafel sandwiches I have had outside of the Middle-East. Falafel was tender, crunchy, tasty and with arugula pesto, radish & fennel slaw. Just great!

Who doesn't love tater tots? We had buffalo and poutine. Good. Buffalo - yummy, spicy, tasty. Poutine - gravy, cheesy, good They have so many options. They have things besides tater tot stuff. I highly recommend. Find it and eat there.

Had to try the Chipotle macaroni( exceptional!!) and we all tried the Brussels sprouts Caesar style plus three hot dogs. Place is very small and lots of take-out orders happening. Got before the lunch rush and enjoy the atmosphere
