We went to Joe's smoked meat Saturday February 4th for lunch, although the food was very good and tasty, the service provided was very slow at best. Had to stand and reached to the front door in order to get our check. Other than that it was fine.

Unique little place serving an interesting "smoked meat", which I was unable to identify before ordering. It's a little like Pastrami but not really... Good sandwich, not cheap. Nice place. Good music.

Thus is a simple but great place to discover if you like beef smoked meat. Let's take a plate of beef smoked meat with chips and a spruce beer! I would recommend the smoked meat submarine and the smoked meat spaghetti too. Try them and give me some news about it. You won't regret!!

this outlet will serve you smoke meat as a carry out .We brought some home .We are Montrealers so we know about smoke meat ,The meat was handcut and to my taste was even better than what we buy in MONTREAL Just a small outlet but worth the stop.

Great stop when the smoked meat à la Montréal calls, not Schwartz but not far behind and definitely in the style, the coleslaw is incredible it had the freshness of having been made very shortly before service. Cute ambiance friendly service just park behind the church and walk a few steps to the charming main ....

Aparently there is a "house rule" which does not allow them to sell one sub split in two halves, but only 2 half subs. This, of course, adds around $3 CAD to the final price, though the amount of food is the same. The food is OK, but I find this kind of tricks despicable. Would not recommend it.

This is a tourist trap!! People coming out suggested it, but once I looked at the menu I wanted to run but my husband said let's try it anyway. Smoked meat was more like pastrami. NO FRENCH FRIES!!!! Can you believe that... Chips served with smoked meat and service was more of how fast they can get you out of... More

After seeing the # of famous citations on the wall, I thought this must be the best smoked meat ever..but really nothing special. First of all, it took too long considering it was just a sandwich and the place was not very busy - it was 14h30 - not rush hour. The server seemed disinterested in us - talking with... More

My wife and I shares a salad with smoked meat. We are not big eaters so it was a perfect size for the two of us. The smoked meat was tender and lean, absolutely delicious. The server was very friendly. The place was extremely busy and we had to wait for a table about ten minutes. It was worth it.
