The food is amazing, best poutine ever. Service is awesome too, just wish there was more seating space! But then again, that hole in the wall feel also makes it a much more unique experience. Don't leave Thunder Bay without stopping here!

Stop searching for “Ontario-style” poutine and treat yourself to the original!! Don’t order from the menu...ask the owner what you should order and she’ll serve up the best grub this side of Nova Scotia!!
