Someone actually makes real poutine in Denver! You have no idea how happy this makes me.
It’s kind of funny. I actually talked myself into craving poutine recently with my own post regarding an animated gif of poutine. Looking at it when it went live, and stuck for the original option I’d planned when I found out the savory pie restaurant included mushrooms in the chicken pot pie and everything else that looked remotely good, I decided to try the poutine at Big Smoke Burger. I’d heard they actually did it right.
And they did. It actually had cheese curds instead of melted cheese. Gravy, fries, all pretty decent. It wasn’t the best poutine I’d ever had, but it was the first I’d found yet in Denver that I’d actually call poutine. I was pleased (note: I only tried their standard poutine, not their bacon poutine or their limited time pulled pork poutine).
I wasn’t that thrilled with the rest of their menu. It was mainly burgers, with a few variations. That all was good, but not notably exciting to me. However, the poutine was exciting enough.
I’ll be going back for that alone.
