I went to their both locations one on place Laurier as well. Delicious and very interesting enough spicy and seasoned. Lovely service as well. Poutine was fabulous and meat on sliders tender and good.

It was overpriced and the portion size was horribly small. There's no way our pulled pork and pulled beef sandwiches should've been the price they were for the size they were. I don't know where these restaurants in Quebec are buying their mini buns. In Ontario we call those tiny buns sliders. Disappointing. The food was nothing special with exception... More

We saw this place by the ferry terminal to Quebec City. Fantastic barbecue, nice ribs, pork sandwiches. They don't usually put the sauce on as the meat cooks, probably because the dry rub is super tasty. Choice of four sauces, all great! Ribs super tender, beans were delicious, service great. If you like BBQ houses like Memphis Blues (Western Canadian... More

We seldom eat at places that serve food we can get back home...but on this particular evening we had limited options and le Barbacoa seemed like our best chance for a good meal. What we found was a restaurant where the folk fixing the food probably had never eaten real BBQ...but the owner of the establishment had provided the meats...most... More

Barbacoa is in old Lévis, just by the ferry terminal to Québec City. Seems like an odd place for a BBQ restaurant but they make it work. You order at the front, and even though I don't speak too much French, the staff was very accommodating. I ordered a half-rack of ribs, while my wife got poutine and my son... More

This is located right across from the Ferry. We ordered our sandwiches to go and took them back to the room and warmed them up on the Micro. Decent sized servings and very tasty

In past trips down east we've many times stopped overnight in Quebec City but this time we decided traveling with the dog to exit Hwy 20 and stop at Levis for lunch before taking the slower scenic 132 on to Riviere-du-Loup. I found Le Barbacoa had a patio using Google street view so we took a chance and drove down... More
