Roxy’s is a tiny spot for really sloppy sandwiches, burgers, and poutine. Unsurprisingly, it makes for great drunk food, but it’s good enough to eat regardless of your state of intoxication. The burgers in particular are some of our favorites in the city - go with either the standard bacon cheeseburger with their in-house sauce, or the one with pimento cheese.
