My Dad had often said that he would like to try poutine. He'd read about it and it sounded delicious -- then he tried it in a local fast-food restaurant and was so surprised that it was dreadful. Then Dad heard about Belgian Fries when the restaurant was reviewed on tv. We've talked about giving it a try, and today... More

Came here based on Yelp reviews of Poutine. We had the Poutine with gravy and cheese curds. It was so good! We also ordered the fish and it was good too. Everything was cooked well and tastes great. If you like pesto, try the pesto dipping sauce. Sure didn't look like pesto, but it tasted like it. Awesome chill place!

We came here to try poutine and used several reviews to guide us here. The atmosphere was nothing special, like a fancy hot dog joint. The poutine options were extensive. The gal at the counter was super helpful and told us all about poutine and toppings. We had an original and one with shredded beef. The men in my family... More

Since arriving in Canada all I've heard about is poutine but as a vegetarian thought I wouldn't get to try it and gave up on the idea. That was until a young waiter told me about Belgian Fries! Had the classic poutine and absolutely loved it. As did my other vego/ non-vego friends. Have been recommending it ever since!

We saw this on "You Gotta Eat Here" while watching TV in our hotel room one night. I kind of felt like a sellout because I went after seeing it on TV, but whatever. We both got poutines, and they were very good. The fries were just crispy enough, but thick. The gravy was very good, but not overwhelmingly salty.... More

Today we split up our stroll on the drive by sharing a bowl of divine poutine. Divine poutine #12 is your typical poutine mounded with pulled pork served with a side of BBQ sauce. Delicious! We sat at a little table outside on the side walk and watched the diverse world go by.

I've been going here for a while for their fries, which are really good, and a varied assortment of dips. I'm told their poutine is good as well, but I am not much into gravy, even if it is vegetarian. My husband and I just came from there and we both had their Ultimate burger. Now while their choice of... More

Somehow we got on to the topic of deep fried ice cream during a recent day trip with the kids into Vancouver. When we were kids we used to go to a place called Chi-Chis in Surrey where they did a block of ice cream rolled in brown sugar (I think), and then a quick drop in the deep fryer.... More

My favourite poutine place. Make it a day. Stroll Commercial Drive and then stop in for poutine. Heaven! Nice balcony for warmer summer weather. Eat fries and people watch. Large portions. Licensed.

We went in tonight for some fries and a couple beers. Food was actually pretty good but the service was a total disaster. Considering the prices I would never go back.... not worth it!
