Top 5 Poutine in Mississauga

When you want to indulge in one of Canada’s most beloved comfort dishes, you don’t have to go far to find the perfect poutine in Mississauga. The city has some choice hotspots for your craving, including the reliably tasty (and growing) Smoke’s Poutinerie, the Streetsville mainstay Burger Legend, the beloved and longstanding C & Dubbs, the elegant and popular Wilcox Gastropub and our number one pick, Holy Smokez BBQ Sandwiches. While Holy Smokez is our proud number one pick, all of the places will leave you more than satisfied when you’re in the mood for a delicious lunch, dinner or snack.

People might not realize how vibrant Oakville’s poutine scene is. They are missing out. Diners with a hankering for Canada’s signature dish should check out the trendy (and totally vegan) Boon Burger Cafe, the delectable Kerr Village hotspot The Gingerman Social Eatery, the ever-popular Tin Cup Sports Grill (which can also be found in Burlington), the relatively new, casual dining option that is Just Braise and our number one pick, the always tasty and eternally on-trend Plank Restobar in Bronte Village. While Plank is number one on our list, we’re happy to confirm that Oakville is, indeed, a hot spot for poutine.
