I am in Montreal & as always i like to have a smoke meat. Its monday, its nice outside but i don't want to walk for 25-30 minutes to go to schawrtz's on st laurent. So on ste catherine i see Rubben's smoke meat & deli. I therefore decided to go in & have lunch. So let me provide some comments as follows:
Location: very well located, on ste catherine in a busy area
Outside signs: very big sign outside showing name, easy to spot
Interior: this restaurant is n the basement of the building. Nice lit stairs to go down. You sit where you want. Lighting is okay, decor is typical deli style with veg in jars every where with a great smell of smoke meat.
Service: i walked in at around 11am. I was welcomed by a few waitresses. This madam with a man voice showed me a table... She was on my tail to order and decide what i wanted. Was watching me until i took my last bite...and then showed up at my table with the check. Its almost like she wanted me to go... Not impressed
Food: very good smoke meat, fries were good as well and of course... Dill pickle and coleslaw
Price: the entire menu provides various meals and the price is reqsonale....
So in the notshall, the food is good, the price is okay but service needs to improve.
If you can try it and compare with scharwtz.
