IMHO,If you're in Vancouver and you get a hankering for a true "Montreal Style" smoked meat sandwich, get yourself over to Dunn's famous Deli on Seymour Street. .They can set you up with a smoked meat sandwich so authentic your taste buds will swear they're kicking back in "la Belle province". Dunns original deli has been on Rue Sainte-Catherine Est,in... More

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 seats availlable are tight, they... 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

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

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.
