If you're looking for a good greasy meal, look no further than Montreal's myriad poutineries, from the almost-too-famous to the sorta-sketchy-but-damn-good. Thanks to a bit of Maps data and some light research skills, Google compiled the restaurants in Montreal with the most all-time mentions of "poutine" in published reviews.

This leaves us with an unusual data set, of restaurants that are notorious for their poutine, but not necessarily beloved for it. However, the majority of spots on this list have plenty of stellar reviews — so take it with a grain of salt, and enjoy some cheesy goodness from the city that does it best.
