cet endroit est un CLASSIQUE. lorsque vous sortez sur St-Laurent rien de mieux que de terminer la soirée chez The Main pour un bon smokemeat
où allez à 4h00 du matin pour une fringale? le Main, ce classique! pour les smokemeat ou les côtes levées, le main est toujours là et dans tout s'est états!
It's cheap. It's ugly. It's great! Juicy smoked meat, dill pickles, and a lot of sadsack saps looking to fill the gap after a night of boozing. The Main has been around since the 60s and it shows. You can even kinda taste it in the meat. It's a tried and true recipe that could give Schwartz's a run for its money in an arm wrestling contest -and speaking of manhandling meat, there's a certain... more
The owner contacted me from my last revue and invited me to the shop to try it again.
I must say I was impressed with the apology and the gesture.
He has changed the focus of the business away from smoked meat and toward grass fed organic burgers. His goal is to refocus the business and expand/franchise it.

My buddy Nachiket P referred me to this place. Better than Schwartz and no line. Sure enough as I arrive I see the line at Schwartz and no line here.

Aussi bon que Swchatz mais en plus propre er plus confortable. Bref, c'est mon avis et je le partage !

Usually overshadowed by the legendary Schwartz's just across the street, this late night standby nonetheless boasts excellent smoked meat, sandwiches and platters and passable sandwiches, burgers and steaks (famous Rib Steak Special, with grilled liver appetizer and all the trimmings). The decor is undeniably tired, and it can get a bit lonely at 4a, but at that hour there aren't many other... more
