1. Paulo & Suzanne 5501 Gouin Blvd W, Montreal, H4J 1C8

Located in some far away residential hood (Cartierville), this 24-hour place manages to be always busy. Why? Well, maybe because ever since the '80s, a friendly staff serve up one of the poutines in town amongst charming '50s décor.

7. Chez Ma Tante 3180 Rue Fleury Est, Montreal, H1H 1H4

Basically a counter with a roof, Chez Ma Tante’s menu features four items: less is more when you know what you are good at. It all started 75 years ago when they served clients out of a horse carriage (seriously). The fries here are amazing and sweet, just like the service, and definitely get a steamed hot dog ($1.90) while you’re at it because it doesn’t get any better than this in all of Montreal.

8. La Banquise 994, rue Rachel Est, Montréal, H2J 2J3

This Montreal Poutinery, to coin a phrase, is open day and night and serves up scrumptious curds 'n gravy fries in a variety of configurations. On top of that, there's a more general menu for traditional fare such as burgers and sandwiches, and they've got a number of microbrews to choose from as well. But really, lets cut the pretense, we know you're mainly here for the scrumptious and squeaky pouty-pouts.
