We were back in Vancouver and just had to do a repeat visit to Dunn's Famous. They are located in downtown Vancouver and a fairly short distance from our hotel the Residence Inn. The montreal smoked meat is amazing ... I opted for the classic sandwich accompanied by split pea soup and coleslaw and my husband got the spaghetti with... More

I'll admit that it was a very lonnnnnng time between smoked meat sandwiches. Prior to my recent trip to Vancouver, I'd last had smoked meat about 25 years ago at Ben's in Montreal ... (don't know whether that place still exists). Anyhow, when I wrapped my lips around that tasty smoked meat sandwich ..... omg, it was as good as... More

We had never been to Dunn's before but decided to try it prior to going to the Lionel Richie concert. We were pleasantly surprised. The menu was quite varied. I had the smoked meat which was delicious. My partner had a salmon linguini in a pesto sauce (instead of the cream sauce). She raved about it to everyone we met.... More

We had our very first dinner in Vancouver in Dunn's Famous during our last visit and it was so tasty. Their menu offers you a lot and it is hard to choose one. I have tried one of the breakfast offers and they were serving it even though it is after 9 p.m.! Their special smoked meat is very tasty... More

Liked the location next to Orpheum Theatre where we were attending a concert later in the evening. Enjoyed a friendly clean environment and welcoming service. Food was average quality and much smaller portions than 'original' experience to be had in founding city of Montreal where Dunn's is 'famous' since 1927. Appreciated the free WiFi to catch up on our emails... More

This is a great meal, wonderful price, and you can choose the selection of the meat. It isn't fancy but it is exactly what you expect from Dunns. Every time we go to Vancouver, we have a Dunns sandwich for dinner and it is perfect. We have no idea why the restaurant is so quiet at night, but if you... More

I first tried Dunn's last year downtown Montreal, came home and raved. I only just realized we have one at home, and MAN does it not disappoint. Hands down the best smoked meat ever.

During a recent trip to Vancouver, we found this restaurant which is close to where our hotel was located and because it was raining and we were looking for something close we thought we'd give it a try and have a smoked meat sandwich. To me the food was just OK but nothing special. The service was pretty decent and... More

Started lunch with fried pickles which happen to be 'pickle spears' rather than chips. We like chips better. They tasted fine but were a little thick on the breading. We ordered the club sandwich with fries, the Dunn's Famous (meat) and swiss with cole slaw and sub the ceasear salad for $1.00. don't bother with the salad go for the... More

We happened upon Dunn's after a full day of sightseeing and a bit of shopping. It is a nice place, clean, tables and booths as well as a full bar area. The Cheeseburgers were good as well as the Onion Rings. Our waitress, Leila, was personable with a good sense of humor.
