Nothing compares to an authentic Texan BBQ. Even though I agree with this statement, I have to admit that there are some amazing barbecue restaurants in our city, and Barque Smokehouse is one of them. A relatively new smokehouse, it offers some great food and an even better atmosphere. The place is often packed, so don’t forget to make a reservation in advance.

Delicious food and the right prices — that’s how I would describe Hadley’s. There are many interesting items on the menu, such as Smoked Chicken Lasagna and Whitefish Pancakes. However, I always opt for Pork Ribs with sauce first. Give this place a try and you’ll be very pleasantly surprised.
1000 College Street and 2293 St. Clair Avenue
A moderately priced restaurant not exactly located where you would normally go for lunch or dinner, but definitely worth a visit. The place specializes in Portuguese cuisine. Their churrasco chicken served with rice and potatoes is to die for. However, there are more must-try meals. Its rotating menu of weekly specials deserves a mention, too.

No matter what you order, exceptional taste is guaranteed. Although the atmosphere is nice, be warned that the place is always packed. However, this is to be expected since there are not many decent restaurants in the surrounding area. This restaurant totally deserves the reputation it has earned over years.

After reading a lot of reviews, I decided to visit Highway 61 and I was not disappointed. Great food is what you would expect from any restaurant. Highway 61, however, offers something more. Live music makes it stand above all the other restaurants in the area. If you like classic rock or blues, you’ve just discovered the perfect place.

Meat and even more meat — that’s a simple description of Lou Dawg’s. The place is exactly what you would expect from a genuine BBQ place. The awesome smell in the air and the wooden interior add to the great atmosphere. Moreover, everything is quite reasonably priced.
650 Spadina Avenue
A great little hidden gem on Spadina Avenue. Cheap and tasty, this place will leave you wanting to come back.
