  • Since my father was born and raised in Montreal, I've been exposed to Quebec-style food as I've grown up. I have had my fair share of poutine in my life, and I'll tell you know the best poutine I've ever had was at Montreal Fries. The gravy is perfect, the fries are perfectly cut and you can tell that they're freshly hand-cut. The cheese curds taste amazing and melt perfectly in with the gravy and fries- nice and hot! The portion is very large for only $5.50. My friend and I could hardly finish it without being absolutely stuffed! I highly recommend Montreal Fries to all the poutine lovers in Durham!

  • I'm a frequent visitor and it's the most delicious, filling meal you can get for under $10. The service is delightful, the food is amazing and it brings me back week after week.

  • I’m not from Montreal but I know I good poutine when I have one and this place does it right! My Hubby brought me home a large poutine and a hotdog. There was no way I could have finished the poutine in one sitting so I reheated it later (it was still great), and the hotdog… well hotdogs are hard to mess up so it was good as far as hotdogs go. I’ve had my fair share of poutine and this one ranks second next to one I had at “Chez Ashtons” in Quebec. I’ll definitely be returning to “Montreal Fries” next time I feel like punishing my arteries.

  • My wife and I are busy most of the time so we eat out. We were downtown and walking about for something new. She grew up on the Quebec border so poutine is something she knows, Steame is something I know from meetings in MTL so we went in. I forgot that this place was the highest rated on this site. I see why. We've been back a few times in a week.
    Only drawback is lack of sitting. I don't want to sit with somebody eating and a bunch of his friends texting. However the food, is damn fabulous. I love those deli dogs. Good servings, good service and good quality. For a hole in the wall I will be returning to on a regular basis.

  • Order: steame, poutine.

  • My sister informed me of this place as we are both from Montreal, we were craving some home styled fast food, so on Friday 18th 2011 at around 6pm we decided to go, when we got there the owner greeted us, told us stories and asked us were we are coming from, pleased that we were from Montreal he said we would like his food better skeptical, he offered us a free hotdog, I was in love, nowhere in Ontario can you find authentic steamed hotdogs like this, if your an out of townee like myself and my sister who are from Quebec and missing La Belle Province or Lafleur's, this is the place to go. The owner swears by his food, 100% satisfaction guarantee or he will refund you.

    Trust me, for an authentic taste of home (Montreal) go here, I'll be back even though its a fare drive from Pickering just for some fast food.

  • Order: 3 Steamed Hotdogs, 1 poutine, 2 cans of coke.

  • Once again, we went to Montreal Fries. Wes was very nice, and I stand by my last review, by calling Wes the SULTAN OF STEAMIES! This is still our poutine hotspot, and will remain so for a while. Bon Appetite!

  • I've had alot of poutine's in my life, (so much, that I'm a poutine connoisseur) but whan I eat this poutine, I become a consumer! This poutine was out of this world! The gravy may not taste like gravy, but that's becaus it's NOT gravy! It's poutine sauce.The Steamies were amazing!They were made PERFECTLY! I've got to say, that the owner/cashier/cook, is the Sultan Of Steamies! This place is a little taste of montreal. As close to montreal as you can get! This has become our poutine hot spot.
    Bon Appetit!!!!
