Now I’m gonna rave about the tots … because if you’re human, you love tater tots. This place has some of the best tots I’ve ever had in my life! We tried the poutine tots last time we were there, and if fat/calories weren’t existent, we probably would have downed at least four orders between three of us.

For food, we decided to start off with the truffle tots. They were delicious! The garlic mayo that came with them was awesome as well. Big portion for only $3.

You’re going to order sides like fries and nachos and sweet potato tots. Yes, you WILL order sweet potato tots. And Mondays are always rough so you’ll order a beer or two. Or three.

The short short version: Come here for solid drinks and maybe tater tots, but expect it to be crowded/loud.
