Photo cred - Diablos BBQ
When one door closes, another opens, or, in this case, when one Montreal smokehouse needs to shut down, the good Lord of BBQ makes sure you can still get all the ribs your body needs. Give thanks, because Montreal just got even more southern-style meats and eats with the opening of the Saint-Laurent location of Diablos BBQ.
With the Saint-Denis location of Diablos temporarily closed due to fire damage from a nearby building (when that grow-op was found), the newly opened Saint-Laurent and Prince Arthur spot will fill the BBQ void left in your stomach. Fully equipped with an in-house smoker, the new spot is ready to serve you the pork and beef ribs, burgers, brisket, and pulled pork you know and love.
Decked out to look like a classic western eatery, the new Diablos BBQ is like walking into an old-school saloon. The decor fits the classic southern style of the food, and the fully-stocked bar, with plenty of Jack Daniels, fills out the saloon vibe.
Diablos on Saint-Laurent held their soft launch yesterday, and today marks the locations first full day of operations. Expect everything you loved about the original location to be found at the new spot, with some welcome changes and surprises. And if you've never been to Diablos, checking out the new digs is the perfect reason to try out the food from the folks who created the winning burger of Burger Week 2013. Your taste buds will thank you later.
