9 Montreal BBQ Restaurants
  • Seoul Chako

    1824 St-Denis Street West , Montreal

    When it comes to Korean BBQ in Montreal, Seoul Chako is easily one of your best options. All you can friggin’ eat, kids. All you can friggin’ eat. Beef, lamb, chicken, ribs, sausage, fish, ox.

  • New System Bar-B-Q

    3419 Notre Dame Street West , Montreal

    New System is great if you’re big on variety. It's primarily a Greek restaurant with a lot of different things other than the typical souvlaki, gyros and salads - not that they’re not amazing on their own. But there are also barbecue honey chicken, traditional pizzas, pasta, smoked meat sandwiches, subs, fish n’ chips, an poutine. Basically, this place is your diet’s worst enemy.

  • Diablos BBQ

    1693A St-Denis Street , Montreal

    Another southern-style restaurant is Diablos on Saint Denis which specializes in barbecued smoked beef, ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and more. Sit indoors for a rustic lodge-like setting as a little Johnny Cash plays over your meal or be your carnivorous self on the outdoor terrace.

  • Icehouse

    51 Roy Street East , Montreal

    Icehouse is Nick’s second restaurant in Montreal. It opened in 2011 and is notably smaller than Kitchenette. But Icehouse sticks to more traditional Tex-Mex and Texas barbecue and if you’re looking for true southern-style barbecue in Montreal, this is the place to get it.

  • Le Boucan

    1886 Notre Dame Street , Montreal

    Le Boucan is a southern-style smokehouse in the heart of Little Burgandy that specializes in ribs, pulled pork and chicken. It boasts a true rustic smokehouse atmosphere to compliment mouth-watering meats cooked over a burning wood flame, also offering a complete selection of bourbons and whiskeys to complete the manliest of animal devouring experiences.

  • Le Fumoir Rubs Smokehouse

    17 Prince Arthur Street East , Montreal

    This place has been closed since January due to flooding, but good news! Their Facebook was just updated last week giving hope to fans of their authentic American barbecue smoked with maple wood, giving it a spectacular Quebec maple twist. They promise they’ll be back open soon with brand new additions to the menu as well as old favourites.

  • Kitchenette

    1353 Rene Levesque Boulevard , Montreal

    Brought to you by Houston-born Chef Nick Hodge, Kitchenette puts a regional spin on classic Texas barbecue and southern dishes. While not strictly barbecue, the chefs at Kitchenette grill mouthwatering steaks, spare ribs, brisket, fish and more.

  • Blackstrap BBQ

    4436 Wellington Street , Montreal

    Located in Verdun, Blackstrap BBQ is an authentic Memphis-style barbecue restaurant where everything is cooked low and slow and served hot. The gang’s all here: ribs, pork butts, brisket, turkey, chicken all rubbed in Blackstrap’s secret sauces. All meats are cooked indirectly over burning apple and oak for added smoky deliciousness.
