Best Fries/Poutine: Big Cheese Poutinerie


Big Cheese

Calling all fry-lovers: This is your kryptonite. Calgarians have named this fry joint No. 1 for three years in a row and you’re about to see why. Smother french fries in cheese, gravy, meat, vegetables, perogies, the list goes on and it just keeps getting better. We can guarantee you haven’t had poutine like this. The Big Cheese has the largest, most comprehensive, innovative poutine menu you’ll ever see. There are options for meatatarians, vegetarians, traditionalists, the totally wild-at-heart, and even you yam-fry lovers out there.

If you’re looking for some rich, comfort food, the Ho-Down will satisfy you with chicken, bacon, ranch and carmelized onions all tucked together in a cozy brightly-colored box. Or perhaps you’re looking for something with a little more spunk. The Holiday Poutine comes with cranberry sauce and baby greens, while the Oktoberfest Poutine features sauerkraut and real German sausage. There are two sizes on the menu: ‘small’ and ‘large.’ Ordering a large means you may not have to eat again for several days and we’re okay with that! Take a night, or two, off cooking and try this legendary poutinerie.
