One of the things that I miss living in Banff is "street meat": sometimes all that I want is a hot dog from a street vendor and I don’t get that very often. So when I was downtown last week and started craving a good hot dog, I decided to try out Shakes. I have now discovered my favourite Banff restaurant to go and get a fabulous hot dog; I love everything about this place!

Shakes is located at 201 Caribou Street, right beside Foot Locker. I ordered a Cheese Dog, my boyfriend had a Chili Cheese Dog and we shared some French Fries. The hot dogs are “Nathan’s World Famous Beef Dogs” and they certainly life up to their name; absolutely delish!



There is an area to eat in Shakes or you can take your food to go. Their food menu includes Hotdogs, Chili Cheese Dogs, French Fries, Poutine and Vietnamese Subs. They also sell milkshakes (which I am getting on my next visit) and Bubble Tea. I wasn’t familiar with Bubble Tea (or “boba tea”) and it is a really cool drink. You have tapioca pearls at the bottom of the cup, flavored back or green tea, blended with either milk and ice, fresh fruit or fruit juices blended with ice. You are able to drink the Bubble Tea hot or cold (it is normally served cold).

So when visiting Banff, make sure you check out Shakes to get a really good dog and let me know what you thought.
