Tubby Dogs - Calgary: Eating Out


Leaving our Banff & Canmore weekend trip, we decided to breakup our drive home and stop for lunch in Calgary.

I had first heard of Tubby Dog from a You Gotta Eat Here episode and then I was chatting with my brother who had come back from a trip to Calgary and mentioned it also.


We decided upon the A-Bomb and Sherm's Ultimate Gripper with a side of yam fries.  My kids loved playing the arcade games while we waited for our order. We marveled upon all the kitschy decor and all the retro paraphernalia.


From what I saw on the episode about Tubby Dog, I can confirm that every bit of it is very true.  You better come hungry because they do not kid around.  Their dog creations are out of this world, big and messy but a great experience for everyone.

Didn't I tell you about Tubby Dog? Well, whatever, we go there every time we go to Calgary. It's awesome. Best dogs ever. They also have music on weekends for those hipster indie rock types.

Trevor: Depends on what kind of business you do!!! Welcome back to this side of the pond. I am currently on the otherside!

Wayne: I don't remember you mentioning it! Not sure why I have never asked you what eats I should hit up in Calgary! funny :)
