I have visited Cheese curds on a few occasions. The burgers are huge, very delicious with an assortment of toppings, go there hungry. A great treat, courteous, a little slow on preparation but worth the wait. Adequate parking, and very easy to locate on the Harbour side in Dartmouth fairly close to the woodside ferry terminal

Arrived around lunch time and thought we'd have a hard time finding a table. No problem. With the variety of areas and seating we had no problem. The food was great, surprisingly inexpensive and hot.

We come here often and it's consistently great. It's not fast food, you will have to wait for them to make your food. Some people often seem annoyed that they have to wait longer than a few minutes, but like their sign says it's worth the wait!

Decided to return and try the poutine. Had a large poutine with bbq pulled pork. Good serving size, nice fries gooey cheese and tasty gravy. Would be just as happy with the regular poutine. Extra flavours make it too rich.

Having never been here before, the menu board was quite overwhelming. I asked staff for a recommendation and ordered the Honolulu burger combo. I was equally overwhelmed by the number of sauces and toppings available, but happy to have such variety. Food was so hot I had to let the burger cool while I ate my fries. Loved the grilled...

Thank you very much, we're delighted you enjoyed your 1st time experience. We'd like to let you know that our fresh made in house burger mix is seasoned, albeit lightly, with eggs, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and breadcrumbs. Your feedback is much appreciated, and maybe it's time we review our recipe and add a little more of each.... More

My doctor tells me to avoid places like this but what does he know. The food was fantastic and well worth the wait. Vegans stay away because you will sure suffer from PTSD if you go in.

Make sure you have a good appetite when you go there! It's one of the best burger places I've ever been to. The food is always fresh and tastes great as well. The meals are big so if you're a small eater you'll want to share. It has a good variety of burgers to chose from and you pick your... More

Absolutely great quality, cooked right, so takes time. It is pricey, but hey, if it's a once in a blue moon splurge, well worth it. Just wish it wasn't so crowded all the time, but that shows the success of the place.

Gourmet burgers and poutine. I've eaten at both the sit down restaurant and at the truck. Both are fantastic. Best fries ever. Best poutine. Love the buffalo chicken poutine. I've never had a bad meal here and the staff are good humoured and fun.

We ordered three orders of the small traditional poutine and they fed our family of four with some extras. The flavour of the gravy to the delicious cheese is amazing. We will come back for poutine next time were in Dartmouth!

Description
Chef Inspired Gourmet Burgers & Poutinerie. “Gourmet” is about so much more than flavour. It’s about making the right choices. Our burgers and poutine are unlike anything you’ve tasted before because we stand by a number of simple principles. We make as much of our food from scratch as we can; whenever possible we support other local businesses; and we make every effort to minimize our impact on the environment. As a Nova Scotia family-run business, we offer more than incredible chef-inspired fare. We offer a completely unique gourmet experience no matter what choice you make from our menu.
