We came for the traditional pulled pork sandwich and were not disappointed! Pickel on the side - loved it!

A local tipped us off to this after we saw the long line across the street. The smoked meat was fantastic and the wait staff was efficient.

Smoked meat sandwich was great -- I had one for lunch and then asked for a deconstructed one (separately wrapped meat, bread and mustard) to take on the plane for the trip home. (I think my seat mate was drooling when I pulled it out for dinner on the plane!) Dill tomatoes were terrific and the cole slaw was fantastic -- vinegary and not mayonaissey. Just as good as Schwartz's without the two hour wait -- we sat down immediately at a nice shady table right outside! Highly recommended!

If you're looking for a great smoked meat sandwich, go to the Main. Sit outside and watch the line at Schwartz's which is across the street. You won't get a better sandwich. And, everything else we had with the sandwich was delicious. Also, this was Leonard Cohen's favorite which says something being that he was from Montreal!!

Worst service & disappointing meal
I think because we were tourist , we were taken advantage of.
Ordered the poutine which was cold and forget about the smoke meat sandwich. It was just FAT. The waitress kept coming over to us in the beginning, then we couldn't find her. We probably should have went to Schwartz
