Dropped by for a little take out lunch ... had the pulled pork combo with coleslaw and a brownie side. Most excellent and a great deal I'd give it 4 and half stars. Quietly wondered if the brownies were made by the owner/chef too or sourced from a bakery it was very good. It's a shame there isn't a little... More

We met Greg Delair today...he was so passionate about his food...and..that passion showed in his cooking! The Buford's Beef Brisket and the Porkalicious were wonderful! Thanks for the southern hospitality!!

Is one pound of meat. You've been warned. Yum. Great brisket. Love the porcetta. They do a pork roll thing that is, well, just eat it.

Stumbled upon this place by chance as I was walking through Little Italy. There aren't very many BBQ houses in Ottawa that pride themselves solely on their great pulled pork at a great price! We had the pulled pork combo with beans and coleslaw. Everything was great but the pulled pork and beans are a hit! I'll be popping in... More

Just heard about this place, couldn't believe a BBQ place had opened in Ottawa over a year ago and I hadn't tried it yet. Went for lunch today and had the half brisket/half pulled pork sandwich came with slaw and a side (had the baked beans) and a pop for $10. I also ordered the baked beans poutine (beans instead...

Great tasting pulled pork sandwich. Owner knows how to do BBQ right. Just the perfect balance of smoke and sauce - and the sides were also good. A real deal for ten bucks. Worth the trip to Little Italy.

Great place for take-out. The pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches are very tasty. The meal deal with coleslaw, mac 'n cheese, and drink is a great deal. The owner is super friendly, knows his business, and apparently makes a mean burger for lunch on Fridays, because each time I've gone, it's sold out!!

The other day I decide it was time for a 'Zydeco fix'. I went over at lunchtime and got myself an Andalusian Sausage with a side of Potato Salad. It was excellant with the right amount of spice for a mild kick, but not overpowering. This along with the side and a drink was enough to make a perfect lunch.... More

I visited The Zydeco today for lunch. I have to admit that this was not my first time, nor will it be my last but I just had to tell you about the lunch special today. The Zydeco has a small menu with a special for each day of the week and the pitkmaster's special lunch of the day guaranteed... More

This place is great! Super value, friendly staff. I like that the menu is small so you know the food is fresh. Only complaint is about the slaw, needed more vinegar in my opinion. But everything else was awesome! Definitely worth a try.
