(Toronto) Thoughts on Caplansky's?

Okay, so, the fries and gravy thread mentioned Caplansky's. It sounded good for the fries so I checked out the site.

How is it for the other things?

Also, what kind of poutine is it? That is, what kind of cheese is it? I'm not a purist, although I love the traditional squeeky cheese curds, I'm pretty okay with a good quality mozzarella or something. In fact, before poutine was a thing people generally knew about in SW Ontario I first had 'fries with cheese and gravy' at a restaurant that was amazing. Fries, gravy then shreeded mozzarella and cheddar cheese (on top of the gravy) then the whole thing put under the broiler for a bit. It was delicious.

So, for the sake of those purists out there... How is the fries with cheese and gravy at Caplansky's?

And the smoked meat?

It really does sound like a tasty place and I'm wondering if I should make the trek to try it out.
