This is as close to authentic poutine as you can get in Guelph. The gravy is excellent and the fries are well done. I have not tried anything else on the menu so I cannot speak to that. As is usually the case with poutine, it is heavy and heart attack inducing but hey that's the point! A little bit... More

The poutine is pretty good, the hotdogs are not the best. The coleslaw they use for the hotdogs is too vinegary and they put too much on along with too much mustard and relish and onions, so the hotdogs become very cold. the prices are a little high too. Overall good poutine and good steamy dogs just need to improve... More

This is the kind of poutine I grew up eating. It's just like the chip trucks from my hometown which I always thought were the best kind. So glad I found this place, will be going back for sure!!

I must admit - I've only gone to Pierre's after a night at the pub/bar, but from what I recall, each time I eat it, it's absolutely delicious poutine.

Pierre's poutine is a dirty little cafe in downtown guelph. The place could REALLY go for a sprucing up. Some of the walls have holes and cracks, the floor is old laminate. Luckily, you don't need a pleasant cafe in order to make good poutine. I've had a lot of poutine in quebec and I can say that it was... More

If you're a poutine lover, look no farther! Pierre's is where its at! Make sure you have a bed or couch near by when the 'itis' takes over!

Pierre's Poutine is great, it's the most traditional poutine I've had outside of Quebec! Although they are a bit pricey, the quality is definitely worth it! Service is a little sub-par since the original owner stepped aside (I believe it's his son running it now?), current employees are not overly professional but not terrible either. Overall grab your food and... More

A small basic poutine here is $7. It's only $5 at Smoke's around the corner and you get more there. It was first and last time at Pierre's.

A true frites place like back home in East-end Montreal. This is not gourmet dining and does not pretend to be, but if you love your hot dogs "steamy, all-dress", and your poutine classic with great sauce brune and real cheese curds, then stop in here to get your fix. Authentic.
