Gone.
But not forgotten.
Was surprised to see it closed up when I went to The Beaches for a walk along the boardwalk.
"For Lease" sign in window.
I will miss the old hole in the wall.
Had some great wings back in the 80's there with good friends.

    This was portrayed, accurately at the time, as a dive in David Cronenberg's The Fly. This is where the particularly gruesome arm-wrestling scene took place.

      The last time I was there, maybe 2 years ago or so, it was one of the worst restaurant experiences I've had in Toronto. Dirty beer mugs, bad service and terrible food. It's unfortunate that it had gone so far down hill. I hope something half decent moves into the space.

        Gone and deservedly so...used to go there regularly for excellent wings back in the 80's. New owners were cutting corners and service and food became extremely second rate. Can't survive for ong in the restaurant biz by resting on your laurels
