    Nacchooos. Probably the best nachos I have ever had. Nice and filling with great toppings and pretty dang cheap. Split a large with guacamole with 4 guys and we got decently filled for 5 bucks each.

    Great music (hip hop and rap from the 90s) great vegan food and great price ($12 for a large meal). Overall id say this is a pretty decent place to chill with your friends.

    A restaurant that has a sign saying "come for the cheese, stay for the vibe" and blasts old school hip/hop from its speakers can't be anything but awesome. The nachos are heaven.

    Spicy peanut is amazing! If you like thai curry try Final option. If you like indian curry, get Tropic option. Downside: expect to be screaming at your friends because the music is way too loud.

    Try the nachos. You won't be disappointed. There aren't many places in Vancouver where you can feed a family of four, along with a couple of beers, for about $20!

    Cheap all-vegetarian restaurant with great food. The nachos are divine & if you are not sure what to try, order the 'Katered Affair'. Warning, service is abysmal.

    The nachos are amazing. Also the OPPP and spicy peanut dishes are yummy if you like peanut-y food.

    Favorite restaurant in town. Can't go wrong with the nachos or the spicy p'nut. The BLT is mind-blowing too.

    One of the few places you can get beer by Storm Brewing. $5 isn't a bad price either.

    You have to question a food establishment that allows a server to wear a t-shirt and just underwear during service.

    Decent food but service is extremely minimal, it takes a while for them to finally come back around to take your order let alone any other requests
