We wanted a light lunch while checking out the city so stopped in here. You get what you pay for. Served in a foil tray - soggy fries, in tasteless gravy with sliced hot dogs and cheese ( and I say that with question) that does not even melt. The picture showed ground beef as well but I guess they... More

Ashton's poutine is one of the best you can get in Quebec City. Every time I am in need for one, Aston's is my spot.

$30 for two 'nothing special' hotdogs and two mini ' Also nothing special' poutines. Felt like fast food... was less satisfying than fast food. Never again. I would have been ok with $30 if it was great, but it wasn't. Would not recommend

In Quebec, one must at least try poutine once. This classic fast food dish, loved by younsters, students, late-night partiers, hungry jacks.... is something new to most American tastes. French fries smoothered in brown gravy, topped with cheese curds. Not on any calorie counting diet, but something that tells one alot about local taste. Ashtons is the recommeded place as... More

Everybody talks about this place as having the best poutine ever, but the poutine is ordinary. It was actually kind of dissappointing. The gravy lacked flavor, fries are ordinary and the cheese did not seem fresh. Glad we tried it, but we wont go back.

We just came from Toronto where we first tried poutine. It was rather awful but we thought we ought to test the Quebec City version. We were told that poutine was introduced to Q C by Chez Ashton so it was the logical place to start. My views have now totally changed - it was really tasty and I feel... More

We had decided that we had to try the national food of Canada; poutine. This restaurant was right near our hotel so we decided to give it a go.

Not a fan of the poutine we get in Toronto , pretty sure most places don't use real cheese curds... I am definetly a fan of chez Ashton poutine .. If one thing found be improved , they could serve hand cut fries . Mini was enough for me , my husband managed a regular ... Barely !
