  • Favorite food at the Big O

    I'll never forget those awesome hot-dogs (even though I like them, most people find them disgusting), at one time they were selling Queues de castor, or Castor Tails in English.

    I like my hot-dogs smothered in mustard, onions coleslaw and a tad of relish.
    I'll never forget them!:atthepc Mmm!

    Those were some good hot dogs. I like my hotdog with nothing but Onions. Now I'm craving one right now.

        People thought those hot dogs were disgusting? I loved em! I think that the nearest equivalent to the big O hot dogs are the ones they sell at la belle province. I prefer those hot dogs to the huge ones they sell, I liked the bread too. I would prefer them with Sauerkraut (i'm half german it's funny but I don't think it has anything to do with my tastes ) ketchup and mustard. The good thing about them was also that they cost what like a buck 50? or 2.50? When I lived in San Francisco they would cost bout 4.00 american at the stadium. I don't want to start going on another out of topic discussion, but what kinda dogs do they sell at the Centre Bell? All I remember getting there is that free T-shirt they give out when you apply for a credit card or something.

          Centre Bell has average hot-dogs, they're average even good, but not filling.
          Personally, I don't recomend em.

            In december, I had to eat at the Bell Center before a game. Two (average) dogs, 8$. Then I remebered why I never eat anything while attending sporting events. Or at the movies for that matter. Le rapport qualité/quantité/prix is awful most of the time. And I'm cheap, so what are you gonna do...
            From now until the end of September, I'll be chronicling in real time on Twitter the 1946 season of the International league's Montréal Royals, when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in professional baseball. Check it out: https://twitter.com/Royals_46season

                The Bell Centre prices are a joke. Although their Fries are absolutely amazing. Except, I only get them if I'm not the one paying. I'm a cheap guy too. And I don't even like Ex so I don't bother with beer at a game. Food and Drink prices at pro-sports events are rediculous.

                Once a year, at the Ottawa Lync 'AAA' games they have .25c Hot Dog day. Now that was awesome. Just picture it, "Can I have 8 Hotdogs please" "That'll be $2.00". I ate well at that game. They're good Hot Dogs too.

                Keeping on the hotdog trend, I find Quebec really leads the way in Hot Dog culture. In Quebec you can really load up your Dog will all the goodies. In Ontario, you're lucky to get Relish. It's usually just a tube of mustard and ketchup.

                And by the way, if you ask for a 'steamie' in Ontario, most people won't have a clue as to what you're talking about.

                  I prefer steamies to toasted.

                    I'm just curious. Where there any good restaurants in the Neighbourhood of the Big O? Are they still open. All I can think of around there is the big movie theatre 'Star Cité'. Granted I usually took the Metro, but I did drive there once. Seemed pretty residential then all of the sudden you have the whole Olympic park.

                      Everything around the Big O is dead now, besides Star Cité

                        Ohh man, I remember when entering the Big O. That hot mist, the smell of the hot dogs. The dark interior, the anouncer's voice, the wide open yellow seats, ...
                        I'm gonna cry:noidea :noidea :noidea

                        And by the way, the Bell Center's hot dogs are great!! And don't even think about those fries.....

                            Alors, mes amis, n'oubliez pas la viande fumée! Or as it was also known, "le smoked-meat." It wasn't anything close to Schwartz's quality, but it was still a different kind of ballpark chow.

                              VIB, are you Canadian? Where did you learn French. I see you're in Brooklyn these days. What's your Montreal Connection?
