Best Poutine in New Hampshire?

bigduddyd Oct 3, 2008 10:06 PM

I grew up around Manchester so I'm well aware of the poutine that Chez Vachon has to offer, but I'm wondering if there are any other places in southern NH that offer it and how they stack up.

    Alas, I've never seen anything vaguely authentic aside from Chez Vachon. Several places have "disco fries" or "gravy fries", but it's not quite the same thing (the cheese is wrong).

    Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, Suzie Q's in Manchester has it as well, but it's not as good as Chez Vachon IMHO.

      Man what a shame. For a city with so much french canadian ancestry you would think that it be popping up on almost every greasy spoon menu.

      What is it about Suzie Q's that makes it inferior to Chez Vachon?

        I just didn't like the fries as well.

      I've never heard of this place? Where is it? Is it good? I'm always looking for good places to go in SNH.

      Chophouse, BVI, CR sparks, Michael Timothy's, seems that's about it around here that is decent.

        Julie, if you consider BVI and Michael Timothy's "decent", trust me, don't even bother looking in Chez Vachon's or Suzie Q's direction. They're both greasy spoons. No post modernist gastronomical epiphanies going on in there. Just good honest working class eats.
