12.00? Sounds like a lot to pay for diarrhea

A rip off AND an annoying name?! Where does the line form to not eat at this place?

Too expensive

Even a McDonald's meal is pushing $10 nowadays.

If you know of places that serve food cheaper, please let us know.

Maybe crumble some Pringles on top?

Sounds horrible, but I'd have to try it if it was local.

I'd rather eat bark.

I prefer Chowda Tots.

Not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed that I guessed where this was going.

The Boston Burger Company had something like that a while ago (and may still), but didn't call it "poutine," just one of their variations on French fries. But if you like both chowder and poutine, which I do, that's a reasonable variation on the theme. (If it doesn't contain cheese curds--and the thing linked here doesn't--it's not poutine.)

Also, am I the only person who gets annoyed by spellings like "chowdah," which seem to be trying to make a point about the local accent not being standard?

Ugh I’m clenching my fist hearing that. Chowda, lobsta, Green Monstah

No. No you are not.

What accent?
It's everybody else who talks funny.

The fact that they'd pour chowder over fries implies that they're one of those places that thinks chowder is supposed to be super-thick. Sure sign (if "chowda" wasn't enough of a tip-off) that they don't know what they're doing.
