Schwartz's Deli - Montreal

My Death Row Meal When I have my last meal I know what it's going to be: a medium smoked meat sandwich with fries, extra pickles, and a Cott's cherry cola from Schwartz's. Nothing satisfies quite like a meal at Schwartz's.  I've enjoyed a lot of delicious smoked meat in Montreal, and I keep coming back to Schwartz's.  I love the hustle and bustle of the place - the small tables, cramped in next to other customers and sharing smoked meat pleasure with strangers.  I would suggest a medium smoked meat because the regular is a bit too fatty for me and the lean is not moist enough.  Schwartz's secret - everything's made from scratch from a near century old recipe.  Their briskets are brined for ten days, without preservatives, and then slowly smoked.  They now have a takeout store right next to the original.  Sit down, enjoy the best smoked meat you've ever had, then go next store and bring a some home and don't forget your friends.

  1. I'm wit you! The medium smoke meat is da balm! Hey, wassup with Nickel's taking over Schwartz's? WTF?

    1. Worried about the takeover too. They must know you can't beat Schwartz's - it just doesn't get any better. No changes. They can try to increase the takeout and merchandise store and leave the rest alone. You can't compromise the best smoked meat ever made. When you mess with the original you risk jumping the shark.
