Let’s start by saying how bad the service is. Delivered food late, and when it finally came it was completely BURNT. Nothing was edible. They refuse to answer or reimburse. You spend so much money for catering for a big birthday bash just to get...non edible food and horrible service. It’s sad that they don’t even respond now and are trying to get away with what they’ve done.More

My kid google-searched for BBQ when we were hungry in Montreal, so hopped on the train and went over. I got the pulled chicken sandwich, and he got the pork ribs poutine. Big hit! I was a little nervous about the poutine but everyone said...it was a must-get when in Montreal. It was much better than I imagined and with the quality BBQ ribs on it, it could not have been much better. It seems that they also run a food truck so if you don't make it to the shop, maybe look up where they are parked.More

Came here one-night craving ribs and poutine, I was not disappointed! Had great food and everything came steaming hot from being freshly made, the only disappointing thing is that they run out of things sometimes sadly, but that just means I have a reason to...come back!More

I'm not sure how anyone could not like the poutine from Le Smoking BBQ. My wife and I were hungry as strolled down Ste Catherine Street so we decided to try some poutine. There was no decision to make with regard to what version we...would get. As soon as saw pulled pork poutine I knew that was the one. Other than being a little on the pricey side, this poutine was fantastic!! I like the smokey flavor and there was the perfect amount of cheese. The fries were nice and thin, just the way I like them. My wife is not a big fan of poutine but she thought it was delicious as well. I would definitely recommend Le Smoking BBQ if you're in the neighborhood.More

We went to the poutinefest at dix30 specifically for Le Smoking. We wanted a rib poutine. We ended up getting the rib/pulled pork poutine. They charged us an exorbitant 17$ for a tiny poutine. I would have been ok paying the 17$ had the poutine...been remotely eadible but unfortunately it was the sorriest excuse for a poutine and BBQ food I've ever had. The meat was in ineadible - dry and hard like a rock because of the sugar. I had to spit it out in a napkin because I would have needed shark teeth to chew it. There were like 3 COLD cheese curds in there and the fries were old and cold (hard to achieve when it's 40 degrees C outside!). And the gravy...oh the gravy. It was like dirty dishwater. The whole dish was screaming for salt and flavor. Never again will I eat the smoking and neither should you.More

Disappointed. Food flavor was too smokey, left strange aftertaste. Other reviews were sooo good, sad I left hungry.

Tired from a long flight into Montreal and having to get used to the cold we went looking for some hot food and ended up in this messy little place with a lot of hard working staff, picnic type tables and plenty of atmosphere. Room...was a bit cramped, staff took a few minutes to bring us the menu's but after that it was smooth sailing. We went for a combo of four meats and four sides at about 39 dollars and a brisket sandwich with homemade fries. The brisket was very good, so was the pork belly. The pulled pork was a bit too sweet for my liking and the St. Louis ribs were decent enough. There was plenty of food at the table and including drinks and tip we spent 80 dollars with three people. In general a good start to our stay in Montreal.More

Love this place!! Stumbled across this bbq joint when visiting Montreal. Really good smoked meats and tasty sides. We had the 4 meat platter with 4 sides, beef brisket, sausage, st louis ribs and 1/4 chicken, all cooked to perfection, juicy and tender. Sides were...home made fries, salad, potato salad and also the BBQ beans which were delicious. So much food we couldnt eat it all. Our server was friendly and prompt, place is casual with throw back pop punk tunes.Totally recommend this place!!More

This restaurant really understands southern style BBQ. The food was outstanding. I'm sorry it took me this long to find this place. The only issue was the chairs were not comfortable and need to be replaced.

Went with a group of 10. Received our drinks 20 minutes after. Tried the pulled pork poutine and was really surprised. Good flavor and the portion was very generous but again, we received our food 56 minutes after.

I can't believe all these bogus reviews that are over 1 star here on this site !!! Usually TripAdvisor is right on !? Not this time , NO WAY!! This is the worse place ever ! Food was crap, bathrooms were out of order ,...front door handle was broken , chairs were horrible , even the machine to pay for your meal did not work because the internet was so horrible they had to plug it in!! The waitress got our order wrong then was non apologetic about it and insisted she was right ! Then the cocktails were lousy and so was the food ! The cooks had no gloves or hairnets while cooking our food GROSS and then our food took half an hour to get simple fast food poutine , fries, and nachos !!! PATHETIC and to top it all off none of the waitresses had a smile on their faces the whole time we were there !! STAY AWAY !! Especially tourists , I don't want this place to ever represent my Montreal !!More

I came here with some friends on a Saturday night. Very cute ambiance inside. I definitely recommend the pork ribs, they were very tasty! Our corn bread side came frozen in the inside, so we had to ask for a new one, but they were...quick to get us a new one. The pork belly poutine was AMAZING. In total, our bill for 3 people was about $70, with no drinks, and we left with leftovers and full tummies! We will be back for sure.More
