          Well, it reopened where there used to be another smoked meat place (Joe smoked meat), so I have a feeling it's gonna be more or less the same. It was fine smoked meat, but nothing so special. I haven't tried it since it reopened under the new name (to me smoked meat is more summer meals)

    1. It's an OK place. Unsure if they changed much since it was called Joe's Smoked Meat. But in a city where you have La Fabrique du Smoked Meat and Brynd's, unsure why you would choose to go there.

      The meat is fine, spices are right. But last I checked, they didn't steam their bread (blasphemy in my mind) and only served boring chips (like, bad Ruffles plain chips) and not good fries or sides.

      OK I guess, but better choices exist in Quebec.
