    The Montreal smoked meat sandwiches here are a good second choice to getting on a plane to Schwartz's and really - the poutine is fantastic. Open till 3am Fri and Sat. [Eater 38 Member]

    Traditional poutine was AMAZING, great value. Pogo had a good crunch but unfortunately the sausage was cold inside. Will definitely come back to try different poutine flavours.

    Ok. I'm a Montréalais expat. Let me confirm that this place has the best AUTHENTIC poutine and steamies on the West Coast - scratch that. Anywhere West of Hull :)

    best poutine I had in Vancouver. Came too late they accepted to serve me and had a medium size whereas I ordered a small. It has happened several times. MERCI la belle palate 👌

    Great selection of poutine and the prices are very reasonable for the size of plating

    Food is good. A little on the expensive side. Most Poutine places make their fries extra crispy. I like mine soft. I asked for them extra soft and I still received normal crispy fries.... #annoying

    Great place- and they even serve up a vegetarian Poutine! Their grilled cheeses are also worth a try

    For someone from Montreal who grew up with the best poutine, I give them my seal of approval. Best poutine outside of Quebec.

    Everything is probably great but I stick with the classic poutine. Authentic, as the owner is from Montreal.

    Poutine is the most authentic that I've found in Vancouver, and also the only place where I've found a Pogo.

    Incredibly good poutine here! Many many options to choose from. It is even better than the overhyped Fritz.

    Apparently the only requirement to work here is to be mentally challenged. You can choose from "Fries with Sauce", or "Fries with BBQ Gravy". I ordered with gravy. I got Sauce. They said it's the same

    Cheese curds that are fresh enough to squeak. I can't think of another place in Vancouver this authentic

    If you want gravy, you can't just ask for gravy, you have to ask for "BBQ gravy". The simps that work here can't tell the difference.

    Authentic. Cheese curds are supposed to be squeaky and rubbery. Good taste of real Montreal.

    Huge range of poutine, but the poutine itself was pretty average.
