Whether you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth or fulfill your high-calorie cravings, Junked Food Co. has it all! This establishment takes everyone’s love of junk food and amplifies it to a whole new level.
Located on Queen Street West, the food ranges from various types of edible cookie dough to whack mac macaroni and cheese, which is served with Dr. Pepper, pulled pork, and Jolly Rancher BBQ sauce!
But the crazy food adventures don’t stop there. They have specialty pizzas to satisfy all of your carb cravings, such as the 416 pizza, and the mac & cheese za. They also have creative twists on the typical chicken and waffles combo like the flame thrower, which includes flaming hot Cheetos infused in the waffle, and buffalo chicken on top!
They also have a mac & Cheeto burrito, for all those times you can’t decide between ordering Mexican food or staying at home and eating a bag of Cheetos by yourself.
But their most popular creations are the smash bags because “the best nachos are built in the bag”. All of the nacho bags start with cheese, lettuce, sour cream, chili sauce, black olives, Pico de Gallo, and jalapeños all thrown into your very own bag of Doritos (the Dorito’s Locos Taco wishes it was this cool!).
And if you can’t bring yourself to venture downtown for your late-night snack, they also have delivery and catering options.
This place has it all! Be sure to check it out!
