Brisket on point, life on point. And the brisket at Rubs? So, incredibly, succulently on point. Hands down my favourite dish at this popular BBQ spot is their brisket - sliced thick, with just the right amount of fat, and super, super flavourful - but if I'm being honest, everything here is fantastic. Protip: get their mac and cheese as a side. You won't regret it.

Lattuca BBQ is located right in Montreal's Old Port, which I think makes it a perfect contender for a date night, or a chill dinner night with your BFFs. But its location is not all that makes this spot so charming: the food here is prepared with legit the utmost care, and the quality of the dishes you get is total proof of that. Their brisket, ribs, sides, and literally everything is so, so delicious.

Guys, I could write you a novel about how amazing Dinette Triple Crown is. But don't worry. I'll spare you the details and get straight to it, though: this spot is notorious in the city when it comes to good BBQ food, like their tender, juicy pulled pork, or their succulent, crisp, and flavourful fried chicken. If you haven't tried it yet, you need to - and if you can manage to go there while the weather's still warm, make sure to ask them to pack it for you in a picnic basket, and go enjoy your food in the park nearby.

Also, bonus points for their chili cheese fries, which are out of this world.
