I’ve been eating at this place since 2009. The poutine is unreal. They fry the fries perfectly. I usually get the Montreal smoked meat added- so good. I’m a big eater and I can just about eat a large to myself. It’s the best poutine...More

Great little hole in the wall for a great authentic Poutine, Steammy dogs and May-West Vachon cakes! If you're from Québec, you will love the options, which include smoked meat sandwiches and the decor, which will make you remind of you Montréal, the Canadiens, etc....More
