French Canadians have long known what Yelpers all over the US are quickly discovering, without gravy and cheese, fries are naked. Sacré bleu! For some inspiration on traditional poutine, we recommend a trip to Canada, or at least checking out the Yelp pages of a couple of locales to the north. Chefs (and snackers!) know, covering frites in any kind of cheese and sauce makes them better, and the combinations are both enticing and endless.

If you can’t make it to Canada, ride the gravy train to one of these top-rated poutine destinations in the US:

Mess Royale, San Diego, CA
Smoke’s Poutinerie, Los Angeles, CA
Allen Street Poutine Company, Buffalo, NY
The Kroft, Tustin, CA
Q-tine, Chicago, IL
US Fries, Tucson, AZ
Perfect Potato, Brooklyn, NY
Poutine Please, Astoria, NY
