Tis restaurant serve north American fast food. So for this place to serve poutine and smoked meat sandwiches they need to find very specific ingredients that aren't easily available. Excellent service and professional staffs. Highly recommended.

Taking account of the location, which is in the middle of playacars party zone, it is a great place to stopover. The atmosphere is typical for a snack bar. The food is tasty and made with love. Pricing is fair!

The sandwich was about half the size of the one they have a photo of on their sign. It also was on a bun, instead of bread, which is unusual for a smoked meat sandwich. The good point about this place is the fries. Forget the poutine and the sandwiches, but go for fries.

There are no hours posted on the restaurant. When we found it open, I was excited to try the... More

Located right on 12th street right in the middle of the action. This place serves north american style fast food. The reason I say "North American Style" is because here in Playa we don't have everything the same as in USA or Canada. So for this place to serve poutine and smoked meat sandwiches they need to find very specific... More
