Best smoked meat in Ontario

The hand cut smoked meat, old fashioned, with their fries is a treat. There is a variety of hot mustards. The Black Cherry Soda is the perfect beverage. Other deli dishes including chicken soup are very homey. The rice pudding, a yummy dessert. Service is good. Line ups at lunch and dinner can be... read more

this is a great place to pick up some feel good food on the way home. I did not try the restaurant but I picked up often take out ( that people thought I cooked!) and sandwiches for kids parties or BBQ.

This is your typical, Jewish-style deli that serves smoked meat, pastrami along with numerous ethnic items and side dishes. It certainly isn't fine dining, nor for those looking to avoid artery-clogging fare. However, when one yearns for some good old, very fresh deli food, it is the place to go in Thornhill. With their roots in Montreal, the proprietors have... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and the consistency of quality food and service does not go unnoticed. It is busy at lunch but the wait times for a table are more than reasonable. The menu is a cornucopia of Jewish style deli items and meat platters that are amazing especially the Montreal style smoked meat... More

I have lived in this area since 2000 and to be honest until 2015 never hear of Centre Street Deli, I have even been in the plaza. These guys need to advertise more because they got a good thing going. Once I heard about this place and I am sure it was on Food Network, I had to have a... More

I never miss an opportunity visit this deli. I love the food, the staff and the decor. This is one of my favourite places to eat. - not quite the same atmosphere as Schwartz's in Montreal, but definitely an awesome place to visit in Toronto. The smoked meat was great by the way!

Wife and I visit Centre Street Deli a few times a year. This place is always busy, regardless of when you go - and with good reason. The "old fashioned" is as good as Schwartz's in Montreal. Get it as a special and you'll get a good scoop of some of the best fresh cut fries, a bowl of decent... More

Always a stop when in Toronto for us. Club roll is ordered every time. Awesome fries and by far the world's best cucumber salad. A must go!!!

The food here is okay, prices are a little expensive for the quality and portion sizes. Service is pretty good.

This place is located just north of the city of Toronto but likely had the best smoked meat sandwiches west of Montreal!!
