At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

Welcome to the 420smokehouse. Conveniently located in the heart of Cabbagetown. We are an authentic smokehouse with our own log burner smoker on premises and offer an unmatched authentic BBQ experience. We slow smoke all our meats: ribs, pork, and chicken. Our premium meats are rubbed with a secret combination of dry spices, marinated for 12 hours to 10 days, then are smoked slow and low. It's All in the Rub! Drop by to experience great BBQ. Owners Virginia Ray and Sasha King.
