Delicious, they even divided for us with out asking as they knew we were sharing, very large dog, and so tasty, much better than the dog we shared at half moon for the same price. They bring the food to you too, fast and friendly.

I had a hotdog with onion rings. I didn't care for the chili on the dog. Wasn't seasoned enough. Wouldn't get chili again but otherwise great food. They also have pumpkin soft serve... Yum!

I have been eating here, at least once a year for over 50 years. I attended weekly prior to that. The tree weiner dog is to die for. Its just a fun place to be.

We were passing thru Winnepeg and stopped by for a quick bite. Everything was delicious and we really enjoyed the ice cream cones for dessert!

My parents and I used to come here before Half Moon for the Hot Dogs now it's the opposite. Hot Dogs and fries are good, their gravy and chili are gloppy and not so good. Not too cheap here either as we paid over 50.00 for hot dogs, fries, drinks for three and one ice cream. Not sure if we'll... More

this place is ok in our opinion it is not spectacular by any means but still ok. the hot dogs are the same as any other place that serves them, as are the burgers. Not that there is anything wrong with them there is just nothing that makes the food stand out above others.

For a hockey fan it's great to wander around & see the history represented. The hotdogs are on the bland side, not the greatest I've ever had. Don't bother trying the chili,... More

And I don't even like ice cream. Well, maybe once or twice a year from Hockings on the Quay at Bideford in dear old Devon, England... And then maybe twice in a weekend from Skinner's, Lockport. Great retro cafe, nostalgic pics of sporting heroes, and ice creams that made a brisk, calorie-shifting walk around Assiniboine Park inevitable later. Peanut butter... More
