I enjoyed it very much, big servings, great food. Though I would consider this a fast food poutine, I still recommend it. Staff was great and I would go back. Great for poutine lovers.

I was so excited to see more than one vegetarian option of poutine on this menu. The listings were so good. They even have sweet potato fries. A small will do you just fine, too!!

I have been to this location a few times and the poutine is always excellent. The dining area is not that large and must get full during busy hours. I had order the regular size Notorious PIG and it was very filling. It had bacon...More

A great place to get some fresh, hot poutine. Many varieties but the traditional is always a good thing. Some might find it a little salty but that's the best part!
