The chip wagon has been a staple in Glace bay for 30 years!!! As always they were open for the Santa Clause Parade with locals lined up around the street. I couldn’t believe it home made fries 3.00 taxes in... absolutely delicious.

I grew up in Glace Bay and every summer I make it a point to visit the chip wagon at least once a month. Their chips are cut on site and cooked in oil. I can taste the chips now as I write this review,...salt and vinegar are the topping I like best! The chip wagon also serves steamed hot dogs and buns. Combine a hot dog, chips and one of their ice cold cans of soda, it is better than a Cordon Bleu meal!More

The Glace Bay Chip Wagon has been a downtown tradition for several generations and a popular stop for both the young and old. The chips are made from fresh cut potatoes and perfectly cooked. If you're downtown they're just at the bridge. Order up a...box of chips, season them the way you like and take a stroll along the wharf or up Commercial Street. If you'd rather not walk and eat just jump in your car and drive to a nearby spot and enjoy your snack with an ocean view. Either way it's an authentic Glace Bay experience!More
