On Thursday, March 29th I was on the road shortly before lunch hour and decided to check out this little place in North Bay: Colonel Hoagie on the corner of Hwy 11 and O'Brien St.
First impression: The parking lot was already well filled and that was about half and hour before noon. Same inside: Quiet a lot of tables already taken and people eating or waiting for their order. Even so, the service was quick and without hectic. The decoration on the walls reflect the time of rock 'n roll, Pepsi and Elvis with some memorabilia like Route 66 plaques. Everything just matches: From the simple table settings to the decoration to the style of the menu. The choices are plenty: Classic 50s food, hamburgers, all day breakfast and great lunch platters.
I was in the mood for a hamburger and choose some putine with it: Wait time was very short and the plate came with plenty of food and a side of backed beans. Everything tasted great: Good fries, juicy burger and tasty putine. Only little suggestion is, that I expected my putine to be a little hotter (temperature wise) - but in the end an overall great lunch. Just a little detail: Even everything was well seasoned, you'll find beside ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper also some seasoned salt in a small shaker on the table .... nice detail.
As a regular visitor to this place said just perfectly: "Colonel Hoagies is always full. Very popular place. Good food and fast service."
I will certainly go back one of these days again and recommend that you check it out yourself and share your experience at Colonel Hoagie's in North Bay
