Good food, we got the platter for 3-4 people. It came with fried chicken, sausage, pork ribs, brisket, and beef ribs. All was excellent except the beef, it was very tough, chewy, fatty and just not good. The food had the perfect level of smoke, we opted for the smoked and fried chicken, and no disappointment there. Our only issue... More

Stumbled into the outdoor seating and went with the waiter's recommendation of the brisket sandwich. Very tasty! Service friendly and efficient.

The food here is excellent. Great Barbecue. I especially love the smoked brisket burger and the slider selection. Service was friendly and efficient. Food was quick. Patio seats were great for people watching and just enjoying the sunshine.

Went here with my family and were greeted with a smile. The atmosphere here was perfect for a BBQ place. We ordered the shrimp poboy, wings and poutine. The food was fantastic and set a new bar for poutine in Montreal. We'll definitely be back!

Ughhh. What a fall from grace. A few years ago i joined some friends at a new bbq place on St. Denis called Diablos. The ribs were delicious, the fried chicken had a unique flavour. All the sides, from the fresh cornbread to the creamy and tangy coleslaw were delicious. My first visit was so impressive that i went back... More

We visited this restaurant 3 times over the past 8 months. Food is overall good, but this should be just the beginning. Our first visit was full of small mishaps in terms of service. Being the first time, we gave them a chance. After three visits, we can confirm this place is run very poorly. Service is awful in general,... More

Food was very good! Appetizers were great- Cajun shrimp! We explained our son was hungry and they brought out his food right away and staff was friendly and attentive! Sangria was great... 2 pitchers later! Yummy! They heard it was my husbands birthday and ended the dinner with a small dessert and a shot!! 🎉 Very cute place!!

A great pit stop amid an afternoon of shopping. Very convenient location, good size patio and great for people watching! Enjoyed the brisket (so yum) with coleslaw and potato salad. We only ordered 1 serving which was a comfortable fill for 2 hungry people! I suggest grabbing a pitcher of sangria (I cannot recall the name but it was the... More

The best brisket I have had outside of Texas! The mac and cheese is great and so is the cornbrad! Everything is made in house and the smoke all their own meats. Nice drink menu. The probalby have the best seclection of Bourbon in Montreal.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
