Location: centrally located and easy to get to. The building is nice and so is the restaurant it's a play on a 60's diner. The kitchen is open so you can see them prep your food which I like. Food: The food is pretty good I have mostly ordered the hotdogs, hamburgers and fries. The quality price is also pretty... More

On July 10, 2016 I entered the Snack Shack and noticed new people behind the counter. I ordered a club sandwich and I noticed immediately that there was a change in the... More

Looks aren't fancy but great food. Big menu for such a small spot. I would stop again if we travel through again.

We go to the Snack Shack on a regular basis. We usually share the club sandwich for two. It's basically one club (you each get half) and lots of French fries and cole slaw. Everything is very good. The fries are made from fresh potatoes and there's lots of good fillings on the sandwich. Very good value.

I have been here once on a visit to Quebec City. Stopped by here for a quick snack and had a very pleasant meal. Good sandwiches and french fries. I guess the frenchies really do know their fries!

I frequent this place as it has excellent poutine at a good price and is open later than other local greasy spoon resturaunts. Personally, I love the smoke meat poutine. They use a good dark gravy, fresh squeeky cheese curds, and a nice quality chip. The hotdogs are decent, but the hamburgers are only so-so. As far as the fries... More
