GREAT.... but a little TIGHT

We are loyal customers to Dunn's, more than forty years, lately Smoke Meat has been in the news. I wanna say, you can't beat Dunn's for their Smoke Meat. It's mouth watering, and of course delicious. We usually go late at night, the only problem, the restaurant is small and tight. If it's busy, the... read more

I like to find new places to enjoy Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches and so, I went to Dunn's. I used to go to Zako's on Broadway. That was the best, but they closed. Dunn's has very tasty meat, it is true. My quibble is that the "medium size" sandwich is fairly petite. It is much smaller than the sandwich from... More

Loved their poutine and their famous reuben. Still looking for a good corned beef sandwich that I couldn't find there.

If you have never had a Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich or Poutine, then this is a place for you. A friend of ours mentioned that we need to try one of these sanwiches while in Canada and Dunn's did not disappoint. The server was extremely helpful explaining how the sandwiches are made and what sets them apart; he also helped... More

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
