Good fast food at good prices

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... read more

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

I just returned from Snack-Shack in Aylmer, I had ordered a Club sandwich, I was very hungry, I took a bite and smelled something kind of rotten. I opened the sandwich and looked to see what was this foul odor. I zeroed in on the tomato. it had gone bad. I brought the plate back and the cook as well... More

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've lived in several different cities and traveled extensively all over Canada and can honestly say this place makes one of the best poutines I've ever tasted. I make it a point to bring friends when they visit from out-of-town and the reviews among them have been unanimous - simply delicious. The restaurant is a self-serve take-out counter with lots...
