Delicious mystery meat in a tube, good bun, topped with a very creative choice of toppings, from perogie to chilli, what's not to like? For serious hotdog gourmets! Oh, got kid's dogs too.

The hot dogs here are the stars. Awesome franks, creative presentation, great flavours. Paired with fresh-made soup everyday, and you have a great late-night haunt or quick lunch.

That said, it's still a hot dog joint, so don't expect anything more and you won't be disappointed food-wise. Service, when we were there, was friendly, but seemed to suffer from a lack of experience or training. Food was slow, orders were made wrong. Still, I like it!

A hotdog shop opened up close to us, so we thought we would check it out. While I'm not sure if we'll be going back (some sticker shock . . . but maybe we are cheap?), the concept is certainly interesting. I'd recommend for them to bring in some more traditional kinds of hot dogs and a better price point, and we'd likely be back. I guess I'm too used to steamies and toasties in Montreal that can be had for a couple of bucks . . . . For now though, it still remains a nice place for tourists to check out if they are looking for a different kind of hot dog.
