“Located on the infamous Pizza Corner, no night on the town is complete without a stop to Willy's for their award winning poutine. For those of you that come from away and do not know what a poutine is, prepared to have your mind blown ( and your arteries clogged). Considered a national dish here in the great north. A basic poutine consist of home cuts fries , cheese curds and gravy. Willy takes it to the next level by adding additional toppings. My go- to is always the poutine with house-made stuffing. When I am feeling a little crazy, I add pulled pork. ”
