Out of control poutine$18, The Gallows
The fries: Changes daily, or every few days. I tried the chili dog poutine, which is plain poutine (hand-cut fries, house-made gravy, and cheese curds) topped with beef chili, red onions, hot dog pieces and shredded cheese.
My take: I am crowning The Gallows the Poutine Kings -- the busy dish I tried is just one of hundreds they have in rotation. The fries definitely take a backseat to the craziness happening on top, and it's fun to pick through all the different flavors. Make sure to dig below the toppings -- like buried treasure, perfectly preserved poutine fries hide underneath.
