Poutine on the South Shore!

I've made a great discovery in West Bridgewater (the Route 106 West exit off of Route 24) - Montreal French Fries. It is located directly across from the Shaw's Corporate Offices, and has a decent sized parking lot.

This is definitely a no frills menu, offering 2 types of paninis, hot dogs, hamburgers (including a salmon burger), fries, sweet potato fries, and poutine.

The other stuff is pretty sub-par, but the real story are the fries. They use PEI potatoes, fried in peanut oil - they are thin, limp, and greasy, but oh so tasty. The poutine is great, and a unique offering in the area. Check it out if you're in the area - their hours are 11 AM - 8 PM

    I drove by the place last week, but didn't have time to stop in. Not to sound stupid, but is thin, limp and greasy a good thing in a true poutine? Are the owners Canadian?

      As an ex-pat Canuck living in Boston, I can tell you that that the greasier the better. More importantly, how is the curd cheese, and what is the sauce like? Gravy-like?

      I've driven by the place a couple of times, but haven't been in. So is it a poutine in the usual style or is it a poutine rapee? Is it edible? What about other items on the menu. Given the location, it's had multiple incarnations, it'sbeen an ice cream stand, a used car lot, a deli and a few things I can't remember

        Are the cheddar curds made daily and fresh enough to squeak when you eat them?

          Wow did I hit an off day. Walked into the place about 12:45, very smokey inside (poor grill ventilation) There were about 8 other people b/4 me who had already ordered. I ordered a hot dog and the sweet potato fries ($6.25). It took 25 minutes to prepare my order as it seemed like it did for everyone else. Once gentelman actually had ordered the Poutine and asked for his money back because his lunch time was almost up. My observation was the owner Gino was doing his best to keep up with demand but the two other associates 1 at the cash register and the other doing fries just hung around. As far as the food the hot dog was okay and they actually had the nerve to put the sweet potatoe fries back in to be warmed which turned them into a soggy greasy mess. Will I go back - NO
