“Often go here with guests”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This is the best smoked meat anywhere. It's still authentically done. But if you're looking for decor and ambience, forget it. You're going, and lining up strictly for the food. They usually seat you with other people, so this is not an intimate "date" setting. However the cholesterol laden meat and fries are the best. Worth the wait -- but if you go mid to late afternoon (2-3:30pm) there is less of a wait.

“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.

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.
