Walleye Wagon, Fish N Chips

Walleye Wagon

Last Wednesday was Canada Day. This is our national birthday, and so it is a day long party. As with any good party there’s lots of food around. This is especially true in the world of food trucks, as many that aren’t on the streets regularly can be found at various Canada Day sites. While wandering around The Forks, one of the trucks I came upon that I hadn’t seen since the previous fall was the Walleye Wagon.

Looking back on that post I noticed that I had said the fish to batter ratio had scored really well in favour of the fish. However, I didn’t have those comments with me when I stopped at the trailer on Canada Day, so I wondered what I was going to get. Thankfully there was still much more fish than batter. As for what else I thought:

The Walleye Wagon is one of the pricier trucks out on the street. Still, the single piece with fries for $10.00 isn’t a bad buy. Each skewer of fish has plenty of pickerel on it, and there is a large serving of fries. Plus, you get a little coleslaw, along with a lemon wedge and a good portion of tartar sauce for dipping your fish. 4/5

Walleye Wagon Selection:

The Walleye Wagon serves fish and chips and that is pretty much it. It does it really well, but you may not be able to please everyone in the family here. 3.5/5


Both the batter and the fish are well prepared. I enjoy the fact that they use Panko battering rather than a traditional dough type. It keeps the batter crispy through and through, and the fish inside was cooked thoroughly without being overcooked. This produces a flaky fillet. The fries were well-cooked, and the coleslaw wasn’t overly dressed. 4.5/5

Both times I ordered the meal was in a recloseable container. The Tartar Sauce also came in a container with a lid on it. 4.5/5


The service was prompt and friendly. When I went on Canada Day there were only two people working but they were doing a good job keeping up with the orders. Also, the lack of staff didn’t affect the quality of the food being produced. 4.5/5

Walleye Wagon Overall:

As I said at the beginning, this isn’t the most economical choice out there, but still worth the money. Also, if you’re not overly hungry, the two combo shared between two will make a decent, light meal. Certainly, if you are a fan of fish and chips, you will most certainly want to give the Walleye Wagon a try. 4.25/5
