Family vacation and my son picks Peckinpah for lunch. BBQ in Vancouver that's not Korean? OK, let's give it a try. Wow! Excellent, Authentic. Fall of the bone tender ribs. No BBQ sauce or Hot sauce required, unless you want to add it. Great side...More

When travelling, I always ask a local for a non-touristy restaurant recommendations and, as is the case with Peckinpah, it usually works out to my benefit. This quaint little place serves up some great BBQ fare. If you are craving cornbread make sure to order...More

We visited because of the Taste of Vancouver tour, and had lunch the next day. It was fabulous! Great food and great service. Not very big or fancy, but really good food.

I was given the choice by my other half of what were were going to eat on our last night, and I chose ribs.... The ribs were good, the chips fab and the beans amazing.... the chicken wings quite hard... Overall good and a recommendation.

This cheerful, bright corner spot may be modest in size but the portion sizes are large. I had the beef brisket sandwich "one-stack", the two-stack sandwich looked to be large enough to satisfy a starving teenager. On a warm summer day this place was busy...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
