Paid just $6.50 CAD for one of the freshest, tastiest burgers ever! Hot dogs, and 'poutine' (fries drenched in gravy ?) are other specialties, but I craved a good burger...and got one ;-) Almost literally a 'hole in the wall' place, but worth trying.

Holy crap, best poutine ever. Donair with the works is the way to go! No place to sit, is just a window to order stuff to go.

This place satisfied my craving. Not a sit down place. Just order out of a window and they will make it for you. Fries are fresh cut and taste great, not much exciting about the gravy. The taste is quite comparable to a Costco poutine...More

This small walk up place has good food served quickly. There is no seating. If you want a quick burger and are staying at the Marriott Residence Inn this is the place to go because of its location and food.

Excellent poutine, great prices. While I'm not vegetarian, their gravy is suitable if you're so inclined, and I actually like it better - it's rich and satisfying without being greasy and leaden. I'd actually consider asking for more gravy next time, it was that good....More

You just cant go wrong with this simple place for after bar poutine. We were only in town for 4 nights, and the locals insisted we try this place out after hitting a few bars near the water. We were not disappointed!

After a cool evening stroll, we needed a snack and decided upon poutine at Willy's. We were treated to delicious and hot fries with a generous serving of cheese curds and gravy. Hit the spot perfectly! Open late to meet late appetites.

The fries were excellent but the veggie burger really surprised me, really tasty, juicy, just perfect, even if you're a carnivore you should give it a try. I ordered the medium sized fries and I had trouble finishing them. Very friendly staff, you can take...More
