    Our first time here: we drove up from Newmarket so I could have gluten free fish and chips, which I have not had since my diagnosis with celiac disease ( approx. 7 years). Honestly, you would not know this was GF. The flavour, texture, portion size, and presentation were perfect. I don’t know how they do this, but it is greatly appreciated. What a treat! They also make non-gluten free fish and chips for the non-celiacs/gluten sensitive/allergic.

    Affordable with many choices. Line ups can be a little long but the food is worth the wait. I am gluten free and they have a whole menu to choose from that other places don’t offer. Just tried the fried mushrooms… delicious.

    Fantastic fish & chips. The gluten free were also fantastic, and we felt good about their handling of the gluten free to prevent cross contamination. Bit of a wait (20-30 mins) because they are highly in demand!

    These would be popular there!!

    Home made tartar sauce is creamy delicious and dairy free – bonus!

    What a choice of condiments too!

    There are outdoor tables but we ate in our car (plenty of parking right at the venue)

    Area kept spick and span super tidy

    Fair price for such great fish and chips! I had haddock but cod and halibut available too

    GLUTEN FREE available with no added wait time or any fuss

    Yes, they do have a dedicated fryer. Yes, they do use gluten free batter. Yes, they do understand and implement the necessary precautions to avoid cross contamination! It is just all yes around.

    Unsure about something? Simply ask! They are very used to the gluten free questions and know they have a big gluten free fan base 🙂

    Glad to have you back for 2023!!!!

    Seriously, the BEST gluten free fish and chips truck in Ontario.

    Best Gluten-free fish in Barrie!!! Very busy Saturday but not a huge wait. The fish was crispy (haddock) . I just read the gravy is gluten free so will try next time. Definitely going back. I thought I would never have fish and chips again as I am now gluten and dairy free. Ladies were so nice too.

    The BEST deep fried pickles in the city. I have tried deep fried pickles from so many places and these were absolutely amazing. The service was incredible as well! The two ladies were so sweet, welcoming and talkative. We went for the first time because of the beautiful bright pink design that really “reeled” us in! They also had a very large menu for a truck and offered many options for large groups as well! Good prices.

    I discovered this place through google and google reviews… We ordered mushroom, calamari and halibut and 1/2 fries and they were delicious. The servings are big and you could tell that they use great quality ingredients and sells it for a reasonable price. We are glad we discovered this place, perfect pit stop for a long drive. Friendly staff/owner. We will definitely come back!

    Had the halibut dinner – fish was excellent. Coleslaw was very good. Fries tasted like they had been cooked, then reheated and when I ate them about 10 minutes after purchase they were hard.

    Some of the best fish and chips I’ve had. Batter was the perfect thickness and very crispy. Halibut was tender and flavourful. It’s hard to be impressed by fish, chips, and slaw, but I actually said “wow” after the first few bites and my girlfriend had the same reaction.

    I also got a side of poutine. Fries were great but not exceptional. Cheese curds were on the smaller side so they lacked chewiness. The gravy tasted great, but they should add an extra layer in between the fries as the fries at the bottom were dry. A very solid offering overall as the flavour itself was spot on wherever the gravy could reach.

    The ladies are very friendly and orders were taken quickly, but the wait for the food itself was quite long on a Friday evening. There were plenty of annoyed expressions all around, but at least the food is worth the wait!

    Wonderful experience with this food truck. Nice people and great food with enough quantity of overflow chips. Love this place
