“The perfect airport sandwich!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

LESTER'S DELI - MONTREAL-TRUDEAU AIRPORT. If you didn't have the opportunity to try smoked meat while visiting Montreal, you have one final chance to do so and it's at the airport. You're in a hurry to catch your plane and you didn't have time to eat! Located in the U.S. departure gates area, Lester's Deli offers a reasonably-sized smoked meat sandwich! It costs around ten bucks and it does the job. Delicious!

“A MUST for smoked meat lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Growing up in Montreal, I sort of took good smoked meat for granted. I regularly went to Dunn's, Schwartz's and Bens. Then I moved away and realised what I was missing. Now when I am in Montreal, I bring family and friends to smoked meat places. The original Dunn's closed, so did Bens. I wanted to discover a new favourtie. On one visit, we went with friends to Schwartz's. Last weekend, we thought we would take the same friends to Lester's. We were all delighted with the meal.

We had a 6-person family meal with smoked meat, rye bread, coleslaw and french fries; we added some carrot cake and coffee after polishing off the main. Everything was very, very good, but we initially disagreed on the "star of the show". The smoked meat was moist and flavourful. The rye bread was fresh and plentiful. At first, no one was having fries (attempting healthier eating habits in a new year) but all six of us ate every last one. The carrot cake had five or six layers, and one piece was big enough to be shared among three people. Our waitress was friendly and helpful.

Eventually, we agreed on two things: the smoked meat was the true "star" of the meal, and we will be returning to Lester's the next time we are in Montreal.

If you like smoked meat, you MUST try Lester's!

“Smoked meet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

It was good, Service is definitively better then Shwartz's but the smoked meet, even if it is very good and way better than the ordinary smoked meat place in Montreal,in my book's and my wive's Shwartz's is the best smoked meat in town.
