2. Splurge and get the fries with garlic dipping sauce. I even like to pour a bit of this on my sandwich.
3. While waiting get your 90s-kid on and play the N64 beside the counter. I recommend Super Mario Kart.
When Come and Get It first opened over a year ago, every satisfied customer was on the edge of their seats not knowing whether or not this pop-up restaurant would be around the next day. However, it’s been over 12 months since I first bit into a juicy Chipotle Braised Beef Short Rib sandwich and I’m still going back. The condos that are supposedly being built in the near future have yet to appear, and I’m secretly hoping this is because a small yet strong Come and Get It army has formed to ward off these dream-crushing bastards. I would seriously shed a tear if this restaurant ceased to exist.

The options here are not extensive, which for many places would become a detriment, but Come and Get It turns this minimalism to its advantage. Four options are offered in three different styles: salad, sandwich or poutine. Basically a range from feeling full, but functional, to stuffed and feeling as though you just might go into a food-coma. I can say this from experience, as my office is right around the corner and Come and Get It was a Friday lunch staple.
My favorite is still the Braised Beef Short Rib sandwich, but I’ve had bites of all other options and nothing disappoints. Keep an eye out for any specials going on too: a calamari sandwich was an option last year and my colleagues let out an audible yelp when they found out this favorite had returned for one day only. Again, I had a bite, and their reaction makes complete sense.
The only downfall with Come and Get It is it’s slightly expensive, with a sandwich being around $9 with tax and a meal including fries and drink at just over $12. However, if it was any cheaper my working habits post lunch would be on a steady downward spiral, so I look at this as a blessing in disguise. If you’re downtown in Toronto, be sure to stop by this 90s-themed gem.His Take
