Some time last year, Moonshine BBQ opened on a dreary stretch of Decarie at the edge of Cote-des-Neiges. The concept and offering is reminiscent of Blackstrap BBQ, minus the fanfare that the latter generated upon launching. Given the heavy traffic along highway 15 (what else is new?), we were lucky to find a parking spot right in front for our lunch break on this rainy Friday afternoon.

The lunch menu, while reduced as compared to the full dinner menu, has no shortage of options, all revolving around slow-cooked, smoked meats. Today we got to sample their brisket sandwich along with a couple of sides. As far as the meat was concerned, it was perfect; thick cut, tender and succulent. The mustardy coleslaw, sweet fries and tater tots were generally pleasing as well.
From the great concept and friendly service to the dreamy brisket (we're still thinking about it days later), Moonshine BBQ has all the elements for a "favorite" rating in our scale. That being said, we won't rush and make that claim before trying their dinner-only ribs and chicken, for fairness' sake. However, as far as lunch is concerned, this place is gold!
Price per person: $15.98
