Came here expecting a taste of true Quebec poutine and smoked meat. Both were somewhat disappointing. The cheese in the poutine was not exactly fresh (it had lost its squeak and chewyness). We were here on a Sunday evening and this place is closed on Monday-Tuesday. As we sat there eating, they ran out of curd cheese and were offering... More

I've been a supporter of this place since it opened. I still go there from time to time, but less frequently now. I order the Smoked meat poutine every time I go. Have never needed to try any other one...this was my go to. As of late, the menu has decreased in size, the opening hours are shorter, and the... More

Had a poutine dish and a steamie which is a steamed hot dog. Hot dogs at costco are much better,I guess these are for kids. The poutine was ok but the gravey was not hot enough and it didn't even start to melt the cold cheese curds. Expensive for what you get, not worht a revisit. Only open till 3pm.

- staff at this little dive were AMAZING: so friendly, guided us through the menu and options we had and was simply fantastic - menu offers a variety of comfort foods: poutine was delicious: great fries, toppings and most importantly real cheese curds - good value - lots of locals eating when we were there

(4.5) Wow, a very unique and tasty restaurant. Kind of a "little hole in the wall" strip mall industrial location with limited seating....all that being said your taste buds will be glad for the treat! :)

We have visited here three times on a couple of trips. The regular/plain poutine wasn't our favorite, but we always prefer it dressed up a little. Second and third visits we got the Mexican poutine and it is awesome. On those specialty poutines like the Mexican, you can only order regular or larger, so it is for sharing unless you... More

I love the idea that you focus and specialize on one thing and make it the best there is. So maybe I was expecting too much. My curds was on top, and not melted at all! Not the dream poutine in my mind. The gravy and ingredients individually were good and the result is definitely delicious. Will keep on trying... More

We have now eaten at this place twice. Had different types of poutine both times. I needed to make sure that the first time wasn't just an accident in the disappointment I felt of the value for my money. Unfortunately I was disappointed a second time. The reason for the 2 stars is that the place is clean, and it... More

We really enjoyed an assortment of orders with our family of six. The classic, deluxe, supreme and one with chicken and peas I forget the name.

The place has limited hours, but is 100 percent worth checking out. Amazing poutine, the regular size is huge and super filling. They are not cheap with the toppings and cheese!
