“Montreal iconic 24-hour mouth-watering fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Smoked meat different than corn beef sandwich - and they serve it right with fries, great coleslaw and tangy dill pickle. Order it medium and you get a tender, juicy piled high delight on rye bread and yellow mustard, with daily specials that include a draft beer.

Parking alongside outside, diner ambiance, fast service and a dying breed given passing of Ben's Deli downtown. So, if you are east of St-Laurent Street check out landmark Deli on Jarry Street.

I wished they delivered!

“Delicious Smoked Meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Found this restaurant when we were in the east end and had a smoked meat craving and did not feel like driving down to the Main to Schwartz. Delicious hand cut smoked meat. The rye bread was amazingly fresh. Poutine was great. Quick and efficient service. They are open 24 hours so we will definitely be returning for more!

“Best deli in town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Great food. Great price. And the service has improved a lot. The smokemeat is awesome and the resto is opened until late. The washrooms could be better taken care of.

“Solid value meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

Not sure it would be worth traveling to this place as you might for Schwartz. But they are offer typical quebecois fare at a good price. Staff is nice.

“Smoked Meat Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

It's amazing that this restaurant "gets it" - when it comes to quality - when it comes to consistency - and when it comes to the heavenly taste of real Montreal Smoked Meat. So many other places have fallen of the consistency wagon, cutting corners on portions, the quality of meat and that "Montreal Taste" that distinguishes our smoked meat from other cities.

Many restaurants use automatic slicers, for example. Jarry Smoked Meat still cuts their meat by hand - and if you ever needed proof of the "cutting art" that it takes, just take a moment and watch Lou perform his magic. He's the Michelangelo of smoked meat - careful, caring and absolutely perfect each and every time. And yes, hand cutting makes a great big difference.

When you go, ask for Lou, or Alex - and watch them "create" your sandwich. It's like watching an artist performing his passion. There's a real sense of pride in what they do. They want you to have a veritable taste of heaven.

Forget the other places - go see Lou at Jarry Smoked Meat - you'll love every bite - ask for it medium, by the way. Enjoy.
