Came here not long ago, and it is divine. Carbalicious and tasty, great on-the go. There is a bench inside, and one outside. The gravy is nice and the curds are good and squeaky. The only downside is the container. Love my poutine to have the curds and gravy spread out. These tapered containers are not ideal for picky poutine... More

On a recent trip to Toronto I ate poutine almost every day and this one was definitely my favourite of the bunch. The sizes are deceiving, I got a regular and could barely finish it, my friend got the tiny and that seemed much more manageable! They're not shy with the gravy or the cheese curd (which is delicious) and... More

Pretty dang good poutine. Best poutine I've ever had? No. Very close to the top? Yes :) Also, there are vegetarian options (which a friend ordered), and the vegetarian gravy was surprisingly delicious. If my memory serves me right, they don't take credit cards...

I was thrilled when I found out that this place had vegetarian options (I think they also have vegan cheese!). The poutine was really tasty. We got it as a late night snack and I'm so glad we came. Very cool place.

Open late which is perfect for our late night snack. Good poutine. No negative feedback. If you're looking for a poutine, why not? (Not the best but definitely not the worse, I was satisfied)

Hard to go wrong with fries, gravy, and cheese curds. No cards accepted, cash only, but there is an ATM on site. Not all toppings will be available as they were out of mushrooms/onions and pork on this visit. Choice of small or large size. Drinks available. Limited seating. On street parking (metered). Recycled/compostable containers and silverware.

Courteous employees that wash their hands often. This is very important when transacting with food and money. The poutine is authentic. Nothing like it on a cold winter's night.

We were very excited to try this, as several locals had suggested it. We made our way to Queen Street, solely for this snack. The website says it opens at noon. On a Friday, the sign said it wasn't opening until 6:00, which was way too late for a snack.

Hello! We apologize for any confusion, but I believe you visited our new King Street location which has limited hours while we build up staff. Our Queen Street location was open at noon that day! More

The service wasn't that great but the poutine was worth it! Nice gravy, with a complex flavor. We recommend it! If you want to see our visit to the Poutini's House of Poutine, check out our vlog episode at Boundless Dreams on YouTube.

Stopped in for some poutine-here is my experience: No bathroom-so if you're thinking of staying be prepared to make it a quick meal. No credit cards-cash only Several choices-that's good-but either the meat sells out fast daily or it's a permanent sign and they don't make meat anymore. Two sizes, also good. The tiny is a lot.
