We've had great smoked meat at the best known places in NYC and Montreal, and Joe's Smoked Meat is one of the best. Thick cut, juicy and flavourful meat on classic rye, with a good pickle, chips and light, uniquely crisp coleslaw. You can't go wrong. And to top it off, they play great blues!

Popped in here on my way up the coast. Great food, the smoked meat sandwich was excellent. The staff are really friendly, multi lingual and knowledgeable. A great place to stop.

Low key, barroom type facility that is clean and welcoming. All smoked meat preparations done in full view behind the bar. Selections do not stray from the main attraction, beautiful smoked and slightly cured brisket. Very, very good simple food, perfect for a energy restoring mid day meal.

Just looking at some of the other reviews suggesting Joe's is out of business. We just stumbled upon it today and loved it. It is definitely not out of business. I had a smoked meat sandwich and a Sleeman's and it was the highlight of the day. My wife had a mixed meat sandwich with the Greek salad and she... More

Lots of meat on your sandwich or salad but a very limited menu. The meat is good but not exceptional but great value for a filling, hearty lunch.
