D&S is located to the East of Ottawa and a bit of a drive. We all had the 50/50 Brisket and Pulled Pork with different sides. Brisket was tender and had good flavour. Pulled Pork was not overpowered with sauce. A wide variety of sides available. Definitely go for the baked beans, great flavour with lots of bits of meat.... More

We are rib fanatics. We lived in the southern US and know the difference between smoked and BBQd pork ribs. That's why we wanted to visit D&S. it's about 70 km round trip from where we live but we made the trip nonetheless. The restaurant is nondescript. Dirty dishes are left on tables for awhile before they are cleared. However... More

and, in my opinion, not worth the drive. The ribs were very tough. We even had trouble cutting the ribs apart. The meat was quite tough. I am no ta fan of fall off the bone ribs but, the ribs we had were tough and could not even bite all the meat off the bone. Brisket was the most tender... More

As a family we always celebrate birthdays out together. Our son picked D&S. Our first time and definitely met our needs. Spacious restaurant, good and pleasant service but most of all the food. Lots of it and was served hot and in a timely manner. Everyone left there full.

We found D&S on the list of restaurants from the show You Gotta Eat Here, and oh my were they right! Fingerlicking BBQ everything! My only regret was not have room left for dessert.

Excellent down-home comfort and food! A short jaunt from Ottawa, but if you like smoked and BBQ'd meat...you HAVE to eat here! The pulled pork is succulent! The brisket fantastic! We ordered and shared the platter of every meat they have...what a meal! Make sure to bring your appetite...portions are big!

Coming home from a small day trip we drove by D&S. I had mentioned that they had a brisket to die for(from past experience). One of the ladies always wanted to go to a smoke house to eat, so we turned around and went for dinner. We were sat quickly and politely asked if we would like any drinks. We... More

This restaurant is off the beaten path but well worth the trip. They have a great menu of southern style BBQ with smoked chicken, brisket and ribs. The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. They feature microbreweries beers on tap and have a good variety to suit most palates. The staff is friendly.
