The poutine here was the first and only poutine I've ever had so I'm gonna stick with the Spud Shack. There are many options, the "baked" potato poutine which is poutine with green onions, bacon and sour cream is my favorite. I would get a small if its for one person but if you're sharing, splurge on the medium or... More

The super creative menu drew me in to this place; it really is very appealing and everything sounds great. Where they lack however is execution... fries were undercooked, main ingredients like proteins and sauces were overlooked and just lacking in the dish... and can't forget the blonde hair in the mayo! It is a nicely decorated place, staff is friendly,... More

Their vegan poutine is the best! 1 Large serving is enough to stuff 2 adults! So yummy! We like to take our order to go and eat it at the Quay overlooking the River.

Happened upon this place after leaving the Sky Train at New Westminster station and I was quite hungry. I have it a try. The atmosphere is pretty cool, it's a small little place but cozy and friendly. I had a regular poutine and it was good, but not excellent which is what I was expecting for a place called Spud...

Not bad. Good fries. Not much table service to speak of. Prices are ok. If you don't expect fine dining, it is worth it.

I was looking for a place to eat and happened across this place right next to the Sky Train platform. Quaint little place with a big atmosphere feel though. Order at the counter type place and wait for your name to be called. I liked the Night Market Poutine I had. anything you'd find at a night market on Fries... More

The way they prepare their fries make them nicely cooked and crispy. A touch of salt and their excellent Malta Vinegar tops!

Best Poutine in New Westminster! But don`t stop there. The Fish and Chips are also awesome. It is cafeteria style but very quick and delicious. Great place to stop off on your way home on SkyTrain or to and from the theatre.

3 for Dinner. Right by the New Wesminister skytrain station this is an inexpensive self serve eating house with a few nice beers on tap, ok red and white wine by the glass and really nice chips and poutines galore. We had traditional poutine a couple of pulled pork sandwiches with chips. The poutine was typical of poutines out west.... More

This place is always great if you want to grab a quick bit before or after grocery shopping and want something so yummy, you will almost die in your seat. It's always busy... because it's so good, so sometimes it is hard to get a seat. They also serve beer... which is great if you are hitting this place up... More
