My third visit to Halifax and I finally get to Cheese Curds. My partner and I wisely shared a large original Poutine (it could have fed three for lunch), we were not disappointed lots of tasty gravy and cheese curbs. Being a big fan of John Catucci I just had to eat here!! and suggest you do too!!

After months of talking about how we should go to Cheese Curds, we finally did it. Our first thought was that it had a very similar atmosphere and decor to the Five Guys in downtown Montreal we had been to. The way they had newspaper articles up on the walls, their ordering system, seating area on a different level, and... More

The steady lineup of people proves the popularity of this neat diner. Very unique burger and hot dog offerings. I tried the lamb burger with feta. Very good. Large assortment of toppings available and made to order. Really good fries. Self-serve soda fountain. Featured on several food network shows by the looks of things. Located in a strip mall, ample...

I went for lunch. There was much to choose from, so I went with Mon Nan and got the most amazing noodle lunch. Compare to ones I have had in China Town in Vancouver BC. I would return in a heart beat. Great Place, great food!

Best burgers I've ever had the pleasure of eating!! So much to choose from!! It's a little wadi so they give u a pager so u can do other things and get paged when your food is ready. Dom fad tacos from habeneros another restaurant that's in it. And didn't like them. Too fancy maybe? And the poutine!!!!! Amazing!!!!!

This is a foodie's burger place! There's something really special about this place. Stylish decor. Extensive burger and poutine menu. The brainchild of a former Navy Chef. Who could've easily opened a fine dining establishment with his skills and background. But instead brought all his skill and considerable imagination to bear on simpler fare. The humble burger gets several interesting... More

The nicest thing about this place was it's logo! The burgers looked like they were made in the restaurant. Decent fries. End of the good news. Indifferent staff. I know, they don't get paid to care or smile. Average food at best! Tasteless burgers, unripe & crunchy tomatoes, ICEBERG lettuce(that's gourmet folks) that was turning light brown, hotdog that could... More

If you want to live on the edge and veer away from the original poutine, this is the place to be!! From pulled pork to nacho, the list is so long, it will take you to a whole new world of choices.

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.
