The pulled pork sandwich is something I would dream about. I dream about sandwich. So sweet and porky. So in conclusion, good.

Unfortunately, I never quite made it to the Food Truck version of Re-Up. However, they now have a set up in the New Westminster Quay with an common area with tables and chairs for enjoying your fabulous order from Re-Up. My sister had the pulled pork sandwich and I ordered the brisket sandwich...both were really, really good! Even though it's... More

Everything made from scratch in their kitchen at the New Westminster quay market. Great quality meat and sides that are sourced locally from top quality, natural producers. They make home made cola and sweet tea that are awesome. Beef brisket and pork are incredibly tender, the sauces are flavourful and their biscuits are the best!! It takes a little bit... More

Went for lunch at the New Westminster Quay location. One order of pulled pork sandwich and one beef brisket sandwich with a side of coleslaw. Warned it would take 10 minutes to prepare and it did take the full 10. So, freshly made they were. Lots of meat, very tender and lean, tasty spicy sauce, decent bun. Good value for... More

I have been to the New Westminster Quay location and tried their platter. I normally am pretty easy to please with bar-b-q but didn't find the plate of mixed bar-b-q as good as I had hoped. I think the quality and preparation is good. The service is friendly and very helpful staff but the taste as good as I hoped.... More

The Re-Up BBQ is a food truck located on the public grounds of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The food truck has successfully made its return after being away due to the occupation of the public grounds of the Art Gallery due to the "Occupy Vancouver" protest. Having returned, the menu of the food truck has expanded from its BBQ pulled... More

My foodie friends and I have been talking all winter about the beginning of food cart season and in particular, the return of The Re-Up BBQ food cart. The meat is so tender, the sauce is so tasty and the southern ice tea so refreshing that my mouth is watering just writing this. While the beef brisket is tasty, it... More

This little foodcart near the BC Art Museum is an awesome find for anyone who can appreciate some good BBQ brisket or pulled pork. I love the brisket sandwich. The meat is tender and flavorful and the BBQ sauce is perfect - just enough heat and sweet mixed together. They only take cash and close when they run out of... More

Re-Up BBQ began as one of the first food carts in Vancouver a couple of years ago. It still operates its cart at Hornby and Georgia in the forecourt of the Vancouver Art Gallery, but also has a bricks and mortar cafe/deli in the River Market in New Westminster that opened in May 2012. This site offers many more menu... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
