Don't worry about the snaking lineup, join in and chat with people! Food is exactly what you expect, smoked meat with a few sides! Just eat and enjoy! Wait staff are friendly and funny too!

Schwartz Deli has been around forever. The place has not changed since it first opened over 80 yeas ago. There is almost aways a line but the they do have customers in and out in a very timely manner. The restaurant is small and tight and you are almost certain to strike up a conversation with people as the tables are cafeteria style. The smoked meat is absolutely the best around and it is easy to understand why the place has been so successful .
If you are wanting to experience a classic smoked meat Montreal Sandwich look no further.

My girlfriend was the one who had the 411 on this sandwich haven when we visited on our trip last year April. Everyone she knew who had been to Montreal said this joint was definitely worth a visit. The smoked meat sandwich was A M A Z I NG. If you visit and you see a note on the wall from a guy named Shawn from the Caribbean, that's me :-).

A tremendous experience for any visitor to Montreal.

Service is efficient, menu limited to what the restaurant is famous for! Do not ask for anything off the menu.... you will be stared at!
Sharing the table with other visitors to Montreal is always pleasant and sets up interesting conversations.

Do not expect to sit and linger over your meal.... east quick and give up your place for others to experience one of the best outlets in the city!

Service was fast and the sandwich was consistent with other times I have been there.

It was tight but that's the atmosphere...
