A few years ago this place was amazing. Went there again in December and were pretty disappointed. Had a regular and a veggie poutine and they were both just kind of bland. There wasn't really anything bad about them but nothing good either. Would not come back again.

I've eaten at this place for about two years and its still the best in Toronto. They use fresh, high end ingredients and make everything from scratch. The staff are REALLY FRIENDLY even though they look like they usually have a very unique sense of style. In other words, don't judge them by their clothes or appearance because they are... More

It took me an hour to get to Poutini's on the streetcar and I was still there about three times a week. It was worth it. Great gravy with lots of spices. The poutine is stuffed full of cheese as well.

Best Poutines place in Toronto. Wide variety and all Poutines can be gluten free - not very common. Good hours - open to midnight most nights and seemed to be popular with locals. Not convenient to downtown but reasonably close to Little Italy.

OK, I'm not Canadian and I've not eaten a whole lot of poutine, but I don't see anyone beating this! I went for the traditional poutine, and was impressed how the fries were cooked fresh before my eyes from wholesome potatoes with the skin one. Curd cheese was crammed over them, and a lovely rich spicy gravy poured over it.... More

When my friend took me to this place for the first time, I was really skeptical because I had never tried it before, but as soon as I had it in front of me, it was love at first sight hahaha, I chose "the Works Poutine" that comes with bacon, sour cream and chives, and it was without doubt the...

The fries, the gravy, the curd...each one is great, and combined they become even better. Poutine may not sound quite right to most americans from its description. I usually dont like putting any sauce on good fries since it usually makes them soggy, but this is the exception. Gotta give it a shot, you wont regret it.

I've only ever been here late at night when it's packed to the door with club-goers. The poutine has been great every time. I usually get The Works poutine, piled with sour cream, bacon and chives. Mmmmm...!

My wife and I shared a regular traditional poutine ($6.99). Although not as good as Montreal hotspots, like la Banquise, it is probably still the best I've had in Toronto. The fresh cut fries were good, however the cheese curds were not melted enough to get that stringy cheese that people love about poutine. The very thick gravy does not... More
