  • Nut-free
Gravy on fries, with cheese gilding the lily. In Canada, it's called poutine. In Jersey, they're known as Disco Fries. In San Francisco, they're Chef Levine's guilty pleasure. In this version, crisp polenta fries are topped with pieces of tender beef brisket in a rich mushroom gravy and melted smoked Gouda. Sliced scallions are included so you can add a fresh onion-y bite and a bit of green at the end. Enjoy today, Pilates tomorrow.

Hearty, tasty and different. Mine had a good portion of meat. The polenta fries loose their crispness and get a little soggy overtime.

I don't have to go to Montreal to enjoy great poutine. The chickpea fries were a nice twist on an old favorite. Would buy again and again

The picture shows big pieces of meat - the one I got was heavy on mushrooms, with meat bits scarce and tiny. Should be called "Polenta Fries + Mushroom Poutine" with beef gravy. I tolerate but don't love mushrooms, this was a big disappointment.
3 Stars
The gravy tasted a bit too much of wine or vinegar for my liking. The 'fries' and cheese were good.
5 Stars
This satisfied my urge for homey goodness! I made sure the polenta fries were extra crispy before adding the cheese, delish gravy and green onions. Would def order again.

The small pieces of fries were very hard (like hard chips) but the bigger ones were softer in the middle (more like fries). Brisket was very yummy but could use more meat. A lot of cheese, didn't use it all. Will use it for a sandwich =)

Awesome grub...the smoke ghouda was delicious..

Very misleading. There was next to no brisket; instead it was almost entirely mushrooms. The ingredient list has beef brisket listed first, so I expected something resembling the photo. False advertising.

Beef part by itself is really good. Cheese by itself is really good. Polenta is not good at all. And all of it together per the instructions, not good at all.

So I look at the picture? nice beef brisket chunks. Description? polenta fries, beef brisket. Rec'd 2 meals w/o meat - OK, I tasted a couple of shreds of beef, period, the same on 2nd one. Need to check QC to match description = add beef as shown?

Nice flavors but not enough meat in my portion

The polenta fries were sitting in oil and were too greasy to eat, even after cooking in the oven. I would give 0 stars if I could.

Really liked the gravy....would have been perfect with some white rice. The polenta fries were average. I did not use the cheese.

Deceptive. Entree looks nothing like the photo. Small portion. No chunks of brisket rather it was shredded and mixed into the gravy. Gravy was watery and had a bitter wine aftertaste. Hopes of a delicious poutine quickly fizzled after the first bite.

My fiance got this as his entree, but the sauce was 90% mushrooms, which he hates, so he only ate about half and gave up. I tried it and thought the flavors were good, but I didnt really want more then that one bite.

This was interesting and very good. But preference would be to just order a bunch of those fantastic polenta fries with aioli or ketchup. Who needs the brisket?
5 Stars
OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Incredible!

Wanted to love it but it looked better than it tasted. Polenta was great but the gravy was very oily which was a turnoff and the cheese did not melt as easily as I would want for a poutine.
5 Stars
Sooo good!! :) I almost burnt my tongue coz I forgot the fries was Polenta inside (looked like French fries Lol) The Brisket was soo yummy, very tasty! Perfect combination! Can't wait to try it again!

Very enjoyable treat. I cannot stand the look, smell or taste of smoked gouda., but this paired perfectly with the "fries" and gravy.
