Fifteen dollars for a hotdog? No thanks. All the toppings were soggy and there was nowhere to sit. Also they got mad because even though they don't sell dessert they got mad that we brought some cupcakes in for my friends birthdays. Additionally the guys who worked there were miserable hipsters, frowning and angry.

We stopped in for lunch, retro atmosphere was interesting. The kids (pre-teen and teen) enjoyed the video games. The 3 adults got the Tubby Dog, we ate it with a knife & fork as it was easy to see it would be too messy to eat like a regular hot dog. Tasty spot we would visit again while in Calgary.

Since my partner just moved in right across the street from this well known establishment, I was eager to give it a go. First off I feel inclined to mention the outraged customer ahead of us who was "disgusted by the prices" going on and making a scene for right around 10 minutes. This was after another customer complained about... More

I have wanted to go to Tubby Dog for a long time. I wasn't disappointed. It is what it is. I got exactly what I came for a great hotdog and a fun atmosphere. If you are looking for fine dining perhaps this isn't the spot for you but if you are looking for great hotdogs and an arcade atmosphere... More

A group of us came here after a night out and wasn't disappointed. I didn't realize how huge the portions were so I left feeling like I was going to explode! I tried the A-Bomb and it was really, really good!! I also like how you can get a beer too!

I've been wanting to check this place out for a long time since it's been on "you gotta eat here" however I wasn't overly impressed with anything. The atmosphere wasn't great nor was the food. They put so much squeeze cheese on the hotdog my daughters were scraping it off thus the potatoes chips came off as well.

My kids always smile when I tell them that we are going to Tubby Dog cause they know that we are going to have fun food & get to play retro video games. It's just good family fun.

A little bit pricey for a hotdog but great value. I ordered the tubby dog Chili dog) and added potato chips to it, it was awesome and super filling. Their T-rings is a version of Onion Rings, too greasy for my taste.

Hot dogs are delicious and varied, it's a young vibe with raucous music and pinball machines in the back. I glimpsed a large "Jesus Saves" sign in red neon in the back hallway, they should really have that in the front!
