Went on one of the first recommendations from the forum thread about poutine, was not disappointed. Fries were good and crispy, true to the truck's name, gravy was standard, and this may have been the first poutine about which I've ever wondered, "is there such a thing as too many cheese curds?"

After getting a taste, no mystery why the lineup was consistently 10 deep throughout lunchtime on a Friday. Wait time on a medium poutine, from lineup to first bite, was probably 20 minutes.. not sure if this is standard for any lunch rush there, but was worth the wait

Thank you all for the great comments and me reading the not great comments with all your help it makes us fix the things that you all think are wrong.

1. Fries- Our fries are not frozen what so ever they are delivered fresh cut to us every morning. Yes sometimes the sizes are off but unfortunatly we have no control over that. I do let our supplier know about it asap to fix the prob. I myself hate the small McD's size fries no flavor and taste like sticks lol.

2. JP crispy chips is NO longer owned by our family. My father had sold that location at the beginning of the season so please do not associate our wagons as the same company. We know and have heard all the things that have bein going wrong ever since my dad sold it but being that it is no longer ours we have no say in what goes on up there.

3. Hours- we are always open up by March 1 (we will open up in Feb just for the lunches if the weather is nice) and we shut down around the end of Dec (used to be Nov). During Dec we usually are open up till around 3pm and are closed on sundays

4. This coming year 2014 i am revamping the menu a little bit more and adding some new things that we think you all will enjoy. During the winter i will be making up a facebook page for all our loyal customers and new customers to join up and be apart of everything that will be going on :)

Again thank all of you for the great reviews we truly are blessed to have met so many great people in this community that come and visit us

I'm changing my vote for this chip wagon. I was a thumbs up, but while I wont go as far to give it a thumbs down, they lost my recommendation when I went on a quiet Saturday and ordered a medium fry with malt vinegar and salt half way through - the answer was a point and "The toppings are to your left". The chip wagon immediately next door will gladly do toppings half way through, even on a busy weekday lunch. It will get my patronage instead.

Seems they have changed their cut to a much thinner cut very dissapointing. The fries in my poutine were overcooked on the ends due to the smaller size giving them a crunchy texture. Can't understand why they would mess with a good thing.CRAP!

Something about spring gets me craving poutine. My wife works out in Kanata and takes Hunt Club home so on Wednesday she stopped by Crispy's for take out poutine supper. It was 5:05pm and they still made her a large and a small. They sure don't skimp on the curds!

Pigurd - If you go to the OF Vendor Page - Crispy Chips - You'll see that Crispy Chips (formerly known as JP's) is a local chip wagon (there are pictures) and as such the "better" chip wagons in the region are only open Spring thru Fall.

Eric, JP's son is an OF Member, and his chip wagon an Ottawa institution... he has quite the following (thru his various incarnations of his Chip Biz). And as many of us can tell you March 1st and his annual reopening is a sure sign of Spring (and much anticipated).

Get your poutine fix while you can, because usually by sometime in November... it'll be over for 2010.

Hi guys,

Many thanks for pointing this vendor out, I had given up on finding a proper poutine in Ottawa. I stand corrected.

It was everything it should be, very welcome on a slightly hungover day...

After wondering about it over many visits, I bit the bullet (and a whole lot more) and tried the belly busting "Sausage Poutine." I went with the Polish sausage option pictured here. It's a Medium Poutine with a slight reduction in fries to make room for the well-distributed pieces of a chopped up sausage.

Very tasty, but it throws off the carefully balanced ratios of fries to cheese to gravy. I ran out of fries first, then sausage and cheese, and was finally left with a little puddle of gravy. Next time I'll go back to the plain Medium Poutine!

This is most likely the best poutine in town. Excellent fries, loads of cheese curds and the perfect amount of tasty beef gravy. The fries are properly soaked but still manage to stay a bit crispy in places. As you reach the bottom and eat your last delicious fry, you'll notice that there's exactly one cheese curd and a little bit of gravy left to go with it. This is the epitome of poutine perfection!

WOW.... Had my first box of fries/chips from JP's today (Yes... the Baseline/Clyde location) .... and boy-oh-boy I never had such good fries since my visit to Sheila's Canteen.

She is located at a beach just southwest of Halifax NS. Near Hubbards on St Margaret's Bay. She gave me three pieces of fried haddock when I only ordered two. Sheila said "One of the pieces looked a little small so I gave you three".

Took me two hours of swimming in the Atlantc ocean to burn off the fish and chips.

The fries at both locations are good and crispy AND they taste like potatoes. Go figure ... french fried potatoes tasting like ... potatoes.

PS: The pic was taken by me while on vacation a few years ago.
