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!!

It’s a Calgary tortilla party! YYC Taco Fiesta 2016

It’s a Calgary tortilla party! YYC Taco Fiesta 2016

Having built a considerable reputation on its wild dogs, this 17th Avenue Southwest hotdog diner has added taco and burger nights to its wiener-filled week. Tuesday Taco Night is a perennial sellout. A special creation for YYC Taco Fiesta, Tubby Dog will serve a braised goat shoulder taco dressed with diced onion, cilantro, queso fresco, lime and radish.

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

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.
