    There are a few vegetarian options, but it's pretty much meat lovers' heaven.

    Beef brisket delivered on expectations. Didn't like the fries in the poutine (seemed a little dried out). Put mustard! Bonus: serves alcohol! :)

    Fries are good, Mac & cheese is too big for me, great potato salad. Breath taking beef brisket on an onion bun

    Highly recommend the beef brisket on a bun: pretty lean, tasty sauce, and deep fried onions on top added a nice crunch. Jewish pierogies delicious but not many come with it for the $9 charge.

    I always get the smoked meat sandwich fatty cut!

    Great smoked meat.

    Leeor Sommer · August 7, 2014

    Try the meatloaf sandwich, brisket, smoked meat, or matzo ball soup. My favourite is the open faced turkey and Kishke sandwich on Challah bread with latkes. Yum!

    Smoked meat.

    Everything about this place screams authentic. Make sure to get the hot sandwiches with extras. Latkes are a must and the smoked beef is that little bit of incredible. Do not walk past this place.

    This is the place to get smoked meat in Toronto. But leave room for dessert. The pies are to die for.

    All I've ever had here has been the smoked meat and latkes. You mean they serve something else?!?

    Nom nom nom. Don't trust their closing hours, though.

    Decided to go for the Smoked Turkey with a Caplanky Salad. What I got was a fistful of dry, unsmoked turkey between two pieces plain rye bread. The salad came in what looked like a small desert bowl.

    great place for food and the chip truck

    Awesome deli: smoked meat as good as (if not better than) Schwartz's in Montréal, and make sure to get a side of poutine with whatever you order!

    Steven Androphy · February 15, 2014
  • Mateus T.

    Great meat sandwich, and the house mustards are delicious. But my favourite is the Knish. Great food and awesome staff! :)

    So delightful. Great smokes meat, latkes, pickles, etc. The staff make it an enjoyable experience as well. Definitely want to try the all day breakfast!

    If the restaurant is crowded, just get your order to go. There's a nice little sitting area next door that would lend itself well to an afternoon dining spot.

    secret menu item: onion rings.

    Geez Louise. I'm going to be dreaming of that cabbage borscht tonight. Too delicious for words!

    Service, post Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, was shockingly bad and portions seem to have shrunk. Was very excited about coming back here but won't be back here again.

    Walked up to a line-up out the door. Worth the wait. Delicious smoked meat and the poutine... Dear lord, the poutine. Definitely going back.

    Try something from "You Gotta Eat Here!": 10 oz Smoked Meat Loaf, The Leaning Tower of Caplansky, or Maple Dipped Fried Chicken
