Loki’s Garage

We wanted something relatively quick and easy in Penticton for lunch so we decided to check out Loki’s Garage. They’re a bit hidden/off of the main drag.

We dropped in around 1:00pm and snagged seats on one of their outdoor picnic tables. Our server was friendly but beware, they don’t inform you of the automatic 18% gratuity on the bill. Nothing on any of their menu’s state that either. Super unimpressed because we ended up double tipping.

Menu consists of appetizers, hot sandwiches + burgers, cold sandwiches and salads.

They also have a brunch menu (weekends only from 9:00am to 1:00pm) and drinks.

Rocking horse caesar ($8.25)

2x Weezy wings ($12.00)
DSC01886Our group shared one order with a dill dip ($1.00 extra). The wings were not good; dry and almost tasteless.

The louisian style hot sauce they coated the wings with was bland.

Seattle fries ($6.00)

4x Pastrami ($15.00)

The pastrami had a good sauce and the cheese complimented the meat. The bread was well buttered and had a crunchy bite to it.

Choreazy ($15.00)

Homey and comforting, something your mom/grandma would feed you.

The chorizo was homemade but flavours were a bit mute. An okay sandwich that we didn’t particularly love or hate.

Food was decent but can’t get over the shady practices.
