join us for skate4cancer and a Destroyer special!

Here at Sneaky Dee’s we’re a pretty mellow crew, but there are some things that piss us right off: Justin Bieber, Monday mornings, and cancer. Yeah.

To stick it to cancer, we’re hosting a Skate4Cancer fundraiser on September 20th. In special honour of cancer-fighting headliners, The Nacho Destroyers, our famous Destroyer nachos will be on special all day on the 20th. Inspired by Toronto’s Cancer Bats, the Destroyer was introduced as a temporary menu item in 2011, but so many of you crazy kids took ‘The Destroyer Challenge’ that we just had to make it a permanent feature.

For the uninitiated, The Destroyer is a delicious bed of fries, gravy and cheese, covered with salsa roja, and piled high with frijoles, ground beef, tomatoes, onions, mixed peppers, jalapenos, EVEN MORE CHEESE and topped with an ocean of guac and sour cream. We’ve even got the veggie crowd covered with our vegetarian and vegan Destroyers!

The Destroyer will be available for $20.85, INCLUDING a pitcher of Buzz/Cool, so come out on September 20th and support Skate4Cancer, even while you’re listening to kick ass music and downing some fucking amazing food!

Are you a broke-ass student? We have a Broke-Ass Menu for that!

Back to school season means a lot of things. Mostly it means that a lot of you are coming back from summer holidays with shit-for-cash and plenty of big, fat student debt. Here at Sneaky Dee’s, we want to support the struggling student, so we’ve come up with a great idea; our Broke-Ass Student Menu for Broke-Ass students!

As part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations, our Broke-Ass Student menu will be available to anyone with a valid student ID until September 30th! It’s our way of saying “Sorry your life sucks again”. While our Broke-Ass student menu is available, you can get any of these tasty Sneaky Dee’s treats for only $5!:

– Sneaky Dee’s delicious poutine
– Our spicy Jalapeno Poppers
– A towering plate of our regular nachos
– Our fresh and tasty Avocado Spring Rolls
– Our awe-inspiring Mexi-Dip Platter

Our Broke-Ass Student Menu is for school nights only, so from Sunday to Thursday, stop into Sneaky Dee’s for some delicious tex-mex that even you can afford!

Free Riot Fest Tickets with Your Nachos!


Do you love music? Do you love nachos? Do you love starting riots? If your answers were “yes”, “hell yes” and “fuck yeah”, we’ve got a deal for you.

This weekend, September 1st and 2nd, when you come to Sneaky Dee’s and order our Destroyer or Cactus in the Valley nachos you’ll get a FREE pair of tickets to Riot Fest! We’re talking Descendents, NOFX, Fucked Up, Andrew WK and more amazing, face-melting, sweat-dripping, beer-slinging artists performing on September 9th a Fort York. Riot Fest started up in 2005 and quickly became one of best festivals in the States, with acts like Rise Against, Weezer, The Offspring, and The Gaslight Anthem leading their lineups. The legacy is finally making its Canadian debut this year and you can count on it being one hell of a show. And the only thing you have to do to get there is stuff your face with some delicious nachos.

Try our Cancer Bats-inspired nacho dish. It’s fries, cheese, and gravy acting as the foundation, then piled high with Salsa Roja, ground beef, tomatoes, onions, mixed peppers, jalapenos, more cheese, and rounded out with Sneaky’s guacamole, and sour cream on top. Some call them “nacho fries”. Some call them “frachos”. We call them “The Destroyer”.

Or, you can try our Lights-inspired nachos done fajita style! The Cactus in the Valley nachos are made from tortillas topped with seasoned chicken, rice, salsa roja, frijoles, grilled peppers and onions, then baked with cheese and topped with fresh guacamole and sour cream.

Which one will you devour? There are no wrong decisions this weekend. Only nachos and free Riot Fest tickets.

**While supplies last, two tickets per order of nachos.




Introducing Kim – The Second Sneakiest Dee!

So, way the hell back in June we introduced the world to Jay – our Morrissey loving bartender who blasts metal and serves up shots of Jäger to our ravenous, nacho-loving friends. We had a good time with that, because despite Jay’s love of The Smiths, we still care about and love him. So we’ve decided to make introducing you to our staff a regular thing. They’re cool people, and they serve you both alcohol AND nachos, so you should at least learn a little about them.

Our second Sneakiest Dee in the hot-seat is Kim. Kim’s been at this shit for a while. She’s been with us for 12 years and keeps the rest of us on track and soberish. I hope everyone enjoys meeting her, because she’s completely fucking awesome and truly deserves the title of Sneakiest of Sneakiest Dee’s.

What’s your favourite part about working at Sneaky Dee’s?
The staff.

How did you get here in the first place?
I keep asking myself the same question

How long have you been working at Dee’s?
Almost 12 years.

Best show you’ve attended upstairs?
Honestly, it’s been so long…I can’t remember.

Most memorable table?
Karina Mikler – she tipped so well that’s we became friends and ended up living together. We still get together at Sneaky Dee’s as often as we can.

Favourite Sneaky Dee’s menu item?
The shrimp fajitas.

Favourite music to listen to while working?
Anything but Rush.

One thing you could never live without?
My kids.

Who do you adore most in the world?
Also my kids…and Johnny.

What’s your favourite article of clothing you own?
My jogging pants.

Preferred method of transportation?

Name three albums you could never live without.
Well, my iPod is currently broken, so anything would be nice.

Rich or Poor?
Rich…or at least not poor.

Spring or fall?
Both, spring and fall.

Head or heart?
I’m still trying to figure that one out.

Thanks, Kim! We love working with you too! Listen, guys; Despite Kim’s Rush-hate (we don’t get it either), she’s one of our favorite people. Having awesome servers like Kim (and Morrissey-loving Jay) is one of the reasons that people dig Sneaky Dee’s. The next time you’re here, ask for the girl who travels via teleportation and say hi!
