Had the mini smoked meat combo...smoke meat was unbelievable good! Fries were excellent as was the pickle and coleslaw...everything about the food was great! Drink prices were very reasonable and the service was extremely quick. Will DEFINITELY return!

The best smoked meat sandwich ever. Huge sandwich filled with the finest meat. Unforgettable taste and it goes well with the original Putin. I highly recommend this place - it is the best smoked meat sandwich place hands down

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
