“The most over-rated smoked meat shop in Montreal.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I've been to Sxhwartz's several times. Each time it left me wanting. Not the best smoked meat in Montreal. The best being Reuben's on Ste. Catherine's.

“Not great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Their is so much good smoke meat in Montreal, and this place is way over rated! The amount of time I waited was just not worth it to me.

“Great smoked meat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Got the number 3, the smoked meat sandwich as recommended from other travelers to the locals. Glad I did, an awesome sandwich and Montreal icon. Had my sandwich in under 3 minutes and was out the door in under 10. Service is fast, but friendly, they have to be with a line going out the door most times. Bring cash, no cards here.

“Awesome Smoke Meat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Fantastic smoke meat! Super pickles! My dad says that the steaks and fried liver are great to!
Definitely not a fancy place but the place is steeped in history!
A "must do" if you are visiting Montreal!
