Have you tried the Piggyback Poutinerie yet?

The Piggyback Poutinerie opened on April 4, 2014. News of the opening day spread like wildfire on social media forcing the poutinerie to close for a couple hours to replenish stock for the evening. Owner Dylan Toth knew he was entering the market with a successful business plan, he just didn’t know how successful it would turn out to be.

Dylan grew up in Toronto, where poutine is very popular. He moved to Alberta in 1991 and trained as a chef at SAIT from ‘92-‘95. He also has 16+ years experience as a manager at Costco, so high volume is nothing new to him. After looking for a restaurant for some time he came across the old Schnitzelhaus location at 303 6th Street South and immediately rented it out. Piggyback Poutinerie opened a few short weeks later and quickly became a new hot spot for dining downtown.

The menu features 20+ different kinds of poutine, all using original recipes, with fresh ingredients prepared daily. The fries are lovingly hand cut each day and new specials are introduced each week. Dylan believes that the top-quality food they use is what sets them apart from the competition. Their friendly service and genuine care for their customers certainly shines as well. 

If you haven’t tried the Piggyback Poutinerie yet, you definitely should. Dylan agrees, “Everybody should come down and try it.” They’re open 6 days a week always starting at 11am. Monday-Wednesday open until 6pm, Thursday until 8pm and Friday until 9pm. It can get very busy inside the small restaurant but they have a wonderful patio to enjoy your poutine outside too.

Stay up to date with all the latest Piggyback news by liking them on Facebook or following them on Twitter. Their menu is available on their Facebook page too, but you can always drop in and check it out – 303 6th Street South, just around the corner from the Pita Pit.
