My kids were craving poutine so we stopped in. Lots of choices but I'm a traditionalist and went with the regular poutine. It was just ok. I've had better. Wish I would've ordered the small because the one she gave me was way too big....More

high quality and decent variety of BBQ food but too smoky for my tastes and therefore won't recommend this restaurant

I went with the traditional. It was very good. It's a very extensive menu, an extremely greasy array of options. If you're into that, definitely go for it. I really liked my traditional one.

Fantastic friendly service, dropped by in a massive snowstorm so the place was empty. Tried several kinds but the Donair Poutine was my favorite. Fun place, great food.

Tried their version of "home fries'- traditional poutine . Truly handcut, homemade potatoes deep fried and then mashed a bit I think. They were awesome, good amount of cheese curd too, good price, but they skimped a bit on their serving of gravy. The bottom...More

Obviously you have to have poutine when in Halifax. We went to Smoke's because Willy's was closed and we didn't want to take the time to cross the water to go to Cheese Curds. I wish we had. I got the original poutine at Smoke's...More
