Tubs Poutine, a popular pop-up that is transitioning into a full-service restaurant, has locked down its permanent location in the Energy Corridor.
Eater previously reported that the roving, french fry-obsessed eatery would open a shop in the Energy Corridor, and now Tubs has officially announced that its permanent home will soon debut at 13429 Briar Forest Drive. It’s taking over the space formerly occupied by doughnut shop Glazed, and a video posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page indicates that construction on the space is set to begin soon.
Tubs, named for owner Brian Nguyen’s toddler, will have more than six different poutines on offer. Cheese curds and gravy will be a staple on the fries, of course, but diners can also look forward to inventive toppings better known south of the Canadian border like crawfish (when in season), plus barbecue pulled pork, rotisserie chicken, and more. Tubs plans to debut other menu items too, including deep fried cheese curds and brunch bowl scrambles featuring potatoes, eggs, tomatoes, and avocado among other mouth-watering ingredients.
The eatery is aiming for a June 1 opening date. Stay tuned for the official word on that and hours of operation.
