This Spud's is located in a large big box store plaza in suburban Barrhaven. This location is easily accessed either via the nearby parking lots off Marketplace Avenue or using OC Transpo's Marketplace Transitway station.
I entered about 11:45 a.m. to an empty storefront with two employees behind the counter. I appeared to be the first customer of the day as I walked up, reviewed the menus on the overhead digital screens and placed my order.

The Order: 1 Macho Nacho Poutine and 1 500 ml bottle of Pepsi.
The two ladies behind the counter started preparing my order as soon as the cash drawer closed on the register.

I sat for perhaps five minutes reading the newspaper I brought with me. The interior is nothing special with traditional wooden restaurant tables for groups along with a counter running along the window for those singles wishing to people watch those passing by on the sidewalk outside. The main colour scheme is what I call "obnoxious burnt orange".
Eventually my order was ready and I returned to the counter to pick it up and schlep it back to my table.

Overall, this Spud's Potato Bar & Poutinerie has decent service, but that was to be expected with two employees and only one customer. Later I found out one employee was in training which was perfect as it was a slow day for customers coming in the door. So kudos to Spud's for that! I enjoyed my meal and would definitely return if I was in the area.
