Give me another tubby dog!

WOW! Tubby Dog is a great place to stop before, or after the bar. Since I have visited I have had a hankering for another A-Bomb. These hot dogs are creative and amazing - their ingredients include things like Captain Crunch cereal, chips, PB&J (not all on the same one) and there is also normal(er) hot dogs for those less-adventurous. At 3 am, after the bar they keep their window open. During the day it's a really cool feel - rustic hot dog store. This tops my list for fast food!!

Winning wieners and stellar sausages in Calgary

A 17th Avenue Southwest hot dog joint so good they made a movie about it, Tubby Dog is open from 11:30 am on, but happens to be a late-night dining institution. Featuring as much flavour as it does personality, this contemporary diner’s dogs feature odd toppings like Captain Crunch, wasabi and crushed potato chips. Check the eatery’s events calendar for live music performances.

The 10-step guide to bacon recovery in Calgary

This favourite 17th Avenue hot dog shop is famous for hosting all ages weekend rock shows featuring local bands. Feast your eyes on the kitschy diner décor, bring your earplugs and don’t forget your change purse because you will surely want to play one (or all) of the vintage arcade games that line the walls. After you’ve worked up an appetite rocking out, order an A-Bomb (cheese, bacon, mayo, mustard, ketchup, and potato chips), or go all out and order Sherm’s ultimate Gripper – a dog, wrapped in bacon, then deep fried. It’s so wrong, but so right.

Big flavour, small price: Cheap eats in Calgary

A hotdog diner and live indie-music venue of national renown, Tubby Dog has been featured on Food Network Canada’s You Gotta Eat Here!. Order a creatively indulgent dog such as the PBJ, topped with peanut butter, jelly and Cap’n Crunch cereal; the Sumo, with its Japanese mayo, seaweed, pickled ginger and wasabi; or a more traditional Slaw Dog generously piled with coleslaw, chili and mustard. Partner with chips, onion rings or yam fries. Burgers are likewise a bargain on Wednesdays and Tuesdays are all about excellent yet economical tacos.
