Horrible excuse for a poutine, French fries were not crispy, and super dry. Waste on money. Poutine should have a generous amount of cheese And gravy and this had neither. I literally had 2 bites and threw it away.

We had poutine and burgers; they were very good -- not absolutely out of this world -- but we were not disappointed. Unfortunately it was a downpour when we visited, so had to eat our meal in the car. Customer service was good. I wouldn't...More

The burgers taste homemade, fries fresh cut,yymmy pogos and tasty gravy. It's a very casual restaurant (picnic tables), with quality food.
