We were tired after having flown in from Dallas, Texas. This was close to the apartment that we rented in Quebec City. We needed to eat. This place was excellent. We had never had poutine. We're not from Canada. They don't serve it back home....More

We tried the Poutine here on our first day in QC. It was very good. Fast service and affordable prices. The servings are very large so it is great for sharing.

Do not know why, but poutine is always better in Quebec. This is a great shop and on my visit had great music going. Must be something different in the curds.

With a phone number 522-GRAS (522-FAT!) you might be alarmed, but don't be. This is poutine heaven! They also serve burgers, hot dogs & smoked meats! We were there for the poutine! It was really good (but we aren't experts on that). The inside was...More
