This did remind me of the spots along the Main in Montreal in the 70's offering steamed hot dogs, etc. Thing is; it was junk food/drunk food then and it still is. If you're looking for a trip down memory lane for this kind of food, they're pretty close with the hog dogs (although back then they were 50 cents apiece or less and here they're about $2. It was a long time ago). The fries were disappointing, nothing special at all. Can't speak to the poutine; I'm not a fan. The smoked meat sandwich is now longer available due to supply problems though they still have it at their Vancouver store.
If you're a fan of he food I'd say you'll be happy; otherwise it's just a diner.

Great poutine (like from when I remember as a kid growing up in Montreal). Hot dogs were great too. I had mine steamed. Only a couple tables to sit at but that doesn't matter. Get a carryout. It's the food that counts.

This place was recommended by a gal working the check in desk at our resort. I had the veggie poutine & my husband had the special poutine and both were DELICIOUS! We will be back.

This place is teeny-tiny counter. We ordered our food and took it across the street to the park which was a nice treat. Our goal going here was to get the best poutine in Victoria while we were there and this place accomplished the goal. It was so good. Food was piping hot and had great flavors at a fair price.

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.

Be warned, the service is not quick and the restaurant is old looking and feeling.
