Good old smoke meat!

Went to Dunns for the second time and was not disappointed. The smoke meat is honestly good. At $13.00 you get the small sandwich with fries and coleslaw. I remember the good old days you paid $5.99 for this exact plate. Lol The place is nice and service is very attentive. I will surely go back.

Had multiple meals at this location and enjoyed everyone of them. Service was quick and good and every time I go to Montreal I go this place. May not be the original Smoked Meat restaurant but good alternative from Swartz's. All depends on where you are staying in the Montreal area. You won't be disappointed if you eat here.

Had a grood meal here on a cold winter night. I enjoyed the Montreal smoked meat on a Montreal style bagel. The portion size was very generous and the food was served quickly and came out hot. The atmosphere in the restaurant is an old style dinner - but it seemed very clean and there was pride of ownership. The... More

Exactly what we were hoping for! Yummy food, great service. Fun atmosphere. Just right for a lunch break on a cold day exploring Montreal. Perfect location.

We HAD to get some smoked meat & poutine before our flight left...a trip to Montreal isn't complete without this meal...and Dunn's is open 24 hours! Great sandwich, excellent poutine, fast service. Enough said.

Best Montreal smoked meat. Love the pickles, same as the ones they serve at Gibby's. It is great to have a Dunn's sandwich for lunch. It is a must every time I visit Montreal. Service is pretty fast.

Awesome smoke meat sandwiches, very filling and good fries to go with it. Don't pass up on the smoked meat egg rolls, a real nice appetizer. Definitely worth a stop when in Montreal

Unfortunately we just stopped in for a snack so we had a drink and a poutine. Would have liked to have ate more, but we didn't have much time. Poutine was great and service was quick and friendly aswell.

My husband and I popped into this place after watching the Canada USA juniors hockey game on New Years Eve. We ordered a couple beers and the smoked meat egg rolls and for him the smoked meat poutine and I just went with traditional poutine. The food was so very good, the waitress was super friendly and the atmosphere was... More

This is a good place to go for a quick lunch or a late night snack if you like deli. There are certainly partisans of Schwarz' for the truly BEST smoked meat, and perhaps they are, but no line here and it is right downtown!
