After a hard day of pulling in wood from the bush, we decided to head into Alexandria, Ontario to a popular chip stand called Mom & Burger.
It's basically a large shipping container with a door cut out of it and a tent-like structure added in front of the ordering window.
Richard thought the whole place lacked warmth and took exception to the "Keep off" signs pasted on the giant metal burger. (I'm still not sure what it is exactly. Some sort of former Burger King mascot with a bobby hat?)
The ketchup and vinegar counter was kind of fun. I only noticed afterward that they have an extras category where you can add more curds to your poutine.
It wasn't really necessary. The poutine had tons of curds. The only problem was that they were cool and not squeaky. The fries were okay and the gravy was hot and tasted fine.
We rated it as an average poutine and concurred at a 3.5 out of a possible 5 curds. To make it fair, we thought we'd give it a second chance when the place is hopping (and in mid-summer, this place hops!) and the fries might be fresher and crisper.
Mom and Burger, 413 Main St. N. (Hwy. 34, just north of the tracks). Alexandria, ON K0C 1A0
