The best Smoked sandwich

Always, when going north on Hwy 11 we stop for lunch at B8's Smokehouse. We have NEVER had a bad sandwich. The French Fries are hand cut and crispy and delicious. The beef is a mile high on whatever bun you choose. Always tender and tasty. Worth a trip to Orillia just for the sandwich.

Went on a date with the husband based on previous reviews. Food was ok for smoked bbq. Not bbq sauce bbq but smokehouse bbq. Didn't understand that when we went. So gave it 4 stars. But the plastic containers and forks when dining in don't do it for me. Great for heading up the highway but not the kind of... More

Arrived at the restaurant on the Friday night of Family Day weekend just as 2 other groups walked in. This clearly rattled the employee who was working. We all lined up along the counter in preparation for ordering. The server asked my sister if she was ordering food (she was first in line & was @ the cash register), when... More

Great roadside stop for lunch which is what we did. Shaved beef and pulled pork sandwiches were amazing.Excellent poutine - fires are fresh cut and of the best beef gravy i've tasted in quite awhile. I'm looking forward to stopping again next time i'm passing through the area. Well worth stopping for!

I have tired B8's once and loved the beef sandwich and poutine. My family has tried other items and they say that everything they serve is great. I used to stop for burgers on the drive up north and now we wish we found this place sooner. Also chatted with the guy behind the counter when the lines died down... More

Eaten here only a few times. Each time ordered something different and was never disappointed. Huge serving, so make sure you bring your appetite.

The entire house made menu is excellent! My new favorite is the pulled beef poutine so I had it once on the way up to the cottage and again on the way home.

Just to correct previous reviewers, only the smoked beef/pork & pulled beef/pork are prep'd onsite. The turkey, pastrami, Montreal Smoked & Corned beef are from an outside supplier & are then sliced/served onsite. The fries have gone downhill - especially with the recent use of new potatoes. The gravy, which was a tasty treat, has become an over-salted nightmare that... More
