“Get the works”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

I went with my brother's recommendation and boy was I glad. I got the works. Fries with gravy, bacon, sour cream, green onions mmmmmm tasty. This place does charge a premium 4 drinks and 3 works was about 32 bucks but after eating at 6pm I wasn't remotely hungry until noon the next day. Note: this place does not have a rest room. They do however have tall green bins for food waste, wink, wink.

“It magically ensures you won't have a hangover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

We first went to Poutini's on a short trip to Toronto and had to go back. It's located right in the middle of a great strip of bars and serves exactly what you'd expect. Poutin. And that's it. You can choose from a large selection of toppings and styles, and then stand inside or take it in the cab. Perfect after a night of drinking and they even have vitamin water. Your stomach will hurt from being full, but you'll prevent a hangover, that's for sure.

“Vegan Poutine! Yay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

I love that they have a vegan option for poutine. My carnivore kids ate a layered poutine and one with bacon and said it was delicious. My vegan poutine was worth the drive to the city for!

“Come for the name alone, stay because it's the tastiest way to a heart attack.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

I frequent poutine establishments in Canada because I am a Texan and can not get that culinary delight down here. Poutini's is by far and away the best. Order the SMALL one (no human can stomach anything larger, poutine does not reheat nicely and you are sick of it after that much anyway). Get the bacon and sour cream one or the classic and don't expect to have a place to sit in the actual restaurant. Take it with you somewhere.

“Cute Guys Work Here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

I have not actually eaten poutine in 20 years but I took an american friend of mine here (her first ever Poutine experience) and she was as impressed by the hot poutine venders as she was by the yummy canadian culinary delicacy.
