My wife and I went to Dunn's for a late lunch this weekend and were thrilled to learn that we stumbled onto their happy hour menu and prices. All appetizers were half price and alcoholic beverages were also a good savings. We started with a plate of spring rolls (never had those before with smoked meat inside) followed by a... More

The smoked meat grilled cheese and classic poutine was delicious! Our waitress was friendly and gave us suggestions about what to order.

If you haven't tried a smoked meat sandwich, you haven't lived. After dropping our bags off at the hotel, we headed straight for this restaurant. This time I tried the mac & cheese with smoked meat - tasty.

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.
