“Mean Poutine”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I arrived at 11:00 a.m. for my long awaited lunch and must have been their first customer for the day. I ordered the Nacho Grande which only took two minutes max. Huge portion and very filling...not to mention loaded with toppings and flavour. I was very impressed with the interior decor which reminded me of an American chain versus a Canadian chain since it was so we'll put together (sorry Canada). Very clean. Easy to read menu board. Eleven something for lunch and a rootbeer. I will be definitely going back. Smokes is located beside the infamous Pizza Corner in downtown Halifax which is perfect for people craving something other then.....well pizza. Also a new ice cream shop (Yeh) has also opened their doors at the same corner. Poutine and ice cream..mmmmm.

“Good, but maybe not the best”
Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

The poutine is good here, but I still think there's better to be had in the city. I wish the cheese curds were more "squeaky". I really appreciate the vegetarian gravy option though, and the location can't be beat. Fantastic option for post drinking/hangover avoidance.

“must have if ever in halifax”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I must say the poutine at Smokes is the best around. It's not surprising to see the line-up out the door on a weekend night or lunchtime. I had the triple pork poutine (bacon, sausage and pulled pork) and must say all were great quality ingredients. I highly recommend you stop by anytime your in halifax, especially great choice at 3am sunday morning instead of the pizza places just a few steps up the street
