The Lazys vs. Sneaky Dee’s

We’re pretty sure Aussie rockers The Lazys made their first trip to Canada to stuff their guts with the most legendary nachos around (a.k.a. OURS). Oh, and something about playing Canadian Music Week. The hard-hitters chugged backed brews and mumbled some nonsense before getting their saucy goodness on.


Frontman Leon Harrison tipped us off to a shitty flaw on this side of the world. “Splash back in North America can RUIN you!” If that wasn’t visual enough for you, he compared doing businesses in Canadian toilets (we have more water in there or something?) with dropping rocks in a pond. We should’ve sent him out by the tree.


Guitar-slayer Mat Morris failed at changing the channel with his phone. Preeeetty sure we don’t have a TV in that corner, bud.


Let the plate destruction begin! Bass man Glenn Williams, self-proclaimed bogan (Australian for “hillbilly”), wasted no time downing mouthfuls of perfectly blended nacho heaven. It obviously took some deep thinking to truly grasp our explosion of flavour.

Chew on, mate.

If we ran a speed nacho-eating competition, these guys would kill it. Guitarist Liam Shearer put up a triumphant up-yours to the challenge.


Drummer Jay Braslin said among all the CMW action, the band hoped to take a trip to “Viagra Falls.” A Google image search turns up some strange shit. We’re sure our new buds will swim back over when their next Dee’s craving is too hot to handle. See you next plate!


Bring on the Brunch!


Here at Sneaky Dee’s, we never understood the concept of confining certain types of food to specific times of the day. Nah, the words that make more sense to us are ALL DAY BRUNCH. Why limit that magical time when unborn chickens and breakfast meats roam free? For health fanatics, we’ve got light options like Fresh Fruits & Yogurt with granola and honey that are sure to keep you snacking. We even have a Vegan Tofu Scramble for you people who aren’t into eating once-sentient food.

If you’re still hungry and/or hungover, our Gringo Style Breakfast menu is yours to conquer. Traditionally, going “gringo style” means to not wear underwear. Now, we don’t really care if you ditch your johns, but please, cover yourself with SOMETHING before you stop by. We know summer is on its way, but we don’t need you freaking out everyone east of Little Italy. You can order Two Eggs with your choice of bacon, ham or sausage. Or if you’re a real beast of a person, try our 8oz N.Y. Steak & Two Eggs. Oh, and on the board, we have the Pulled Pork Benny, and the Avocado Benny. Definitely wash it all down with a world-class Ceasar. Now you’re satisfied and lounging just as our bud #Brunchcat does..


We’re open at 11 am on weekdays, 9 am on weekends, and sure as hell serve brunch well past your bedtime. So, it doesn’t really matter if you’re soothing a hangover or greasing up your insides before a long night out. We’ve got you. Scram upstairs for our weekly events and concerts after your meal to work it all off!

Canadian Music Week is Here – Introducing the “CMW Cheap Eats” menu!

Every year, thousands of stuffy music executives intermingle with riled up concertgoers at Canadian Music Week. This year is no different, and of course, we’re proud to be a part of the festivities. It all happens this week, so it looks like you’ll be spending all your time grooving to wicked bands and drowning (not literally, though it would be amazing) in the city’s best nachos.

Of course as CMW hits our fine city, so do thousands of hungry, broke-ass musicians and delegates. This year,  we’re happy to throw all CMW passholders a lifeline. We’re proud to introduce the special CMW Cheap Eats menu. Show your wristbands between 11AM – 7PM each weekday during the festival to stuff your faces with food, in exchange for pocket change. Jalapeño poppers, regular nachos, avocado spring rolls, the mexi-dip platter and poutine will be offered for only $5. Of course, we know you need to quench that beer thirst too, which is why we’re also offering Pistonhead Kustom Lager, Amsterdam Blonde, and Amsterdam 416 for only $3. So even when your wallet is worth more than what you have in it, you won’t leave hungry. The kitchen is open late (4am!), so we expect to see you all for some well-deserved post-show eats.  Check out the full menu below!

 That’s only half of our Canadian Music Week excitement. We’ve got three UNREAL nights of music lined up from Thursday to Saturday that includes something for everyone. So who’s playing? Amnesia Rock Fest and New Damage Records will put on a showcase featuring our boys The Flatliners on Thursday, and  M for Montreal, Bonsound, and Audio Blood are back  is back for their annual showcase on May 9, which kicks off at 7PM with a poutine party. A POUTINE PARTY. Finally, Travis Porter presents a showcase of Sneaky Dee’s and The Hard Luck favourites that promises to be an amazing way to finish off the festival. See the full line-ups below!

Flashback: Lights, The Balconies, and Holy Fuck Crash Dee’s

Hosting and blasting kickass music for almost 30 years means our ears our pretty much done for. But hey, we’ve still got a killer taste for food and talent.

Let’s headbang through memory lane shall we?

2013: Lights and us sealed the deal on our bromance by creating a custom nacho platter together, “Cactus In The Valley,” also a solid lighter-in-the-air track from her record Siberia. The missus said it best: “This is the coolest collaboration I’ve ever done. Screw everything else.”

2012: Our Kings Crown rocks. The Balconies rock.  It was only natural their fierce frontwoman Jacquie O stepped up to the plate to demo the sexy making of our signature dish. Drooling yet? Ya should be – we’re now officially blogTO ‘s Best Nachos in Toronto.

2009:  Why are so many TO bands named fuck something? Because they fucking rule. Brian from Holy Fuck stopped by to tell City Sonic TV how he grew his electronic roots through our experimental music night Wavelength. Damn right do something different.

Sending Good Vibes to our Boys in The Flatliners!

The JUNO Awards are this weekend, and of we’ll be watching closely of course. Why? It’s time for The Flatliners to take their spot on the throne as kings of Canada’s Metal/Hard scene, and we want to b. We’re still feeling a bit sour that Cancer Bats didn’t win last year for “Dead Set On Living”, but we have faith that our boys from TO are going to bring it home this year.
In the meantime, check out their new video for “Birds Of England”.

Join us on Twitter and show your support for The Flatliners on Sunday night!
