Meet the owner

Le Boucan is a charming little neighborhood restaurant located in Little Burgundy offering a Southern US-inspired menu. As the name suggests, the restaurant is first and foremost a smokehouse. Meat, poultry and fish are prepared using a wood chip smoking method that gives the food its unique flavour.

Open since 2010, Le Boucan owes its brilliant concept to its owners, Jonathan Nguyen, Patrick Beaudet and Dérick Francis, all fans of BBQ. After taking part in numerous smoke-cooking competitions, the young entrepreneurs decided it was time for them to put their passion and expertise to good use under one roof and Le Boucan was born!

Today, things are going well for the trio, who have thrown themselves body and soul into this project that is so dear to them. And with such a winning formula, business can only boom.

Food wow, service bad.

Amazing food, that's why I feel bad not giving a 5 stars. But the service was just so bad. The waitress was too busy to care about giving us any service. We went to get menus ourselves along with water. You can tell she was too busy to care, it was not that busy a quiet Sunday afternoon. Change your staff guys, cause your food is sooo good.

Amazing Chicken!

Le Boucan's BBQ Chicken Breast was amazing! We got it with fries and cheesy corn. Quite possibly the best piece of chicken in town, definitely one of the best dishes we've had anywhere in 2012.

Gotta love BBQ

Fantastic patio and the BBQ chicken poutine was incredible (having come in a tall cone definitely was eye-catching!). Save your money on the dessert though (neither the brownie with bacon or pie in a glass were exceptional)... and get one more cocktail!

The only reason I put 4 stars in the atmosphere isn't because of the restaurant itself.. but just bad timing I guess... the restaurant is so small and the table behind us had an obnoxious idiot that kept on talking so loud that you only heard him in the place...at least if he said smart things it wouldn't have been so bad... but not the case. Overall..apart from that particular client...everything was delightful and the service and food were top notch!

Food was excellent. Everything we ordered was well prepared and everyone enjoy a lot the meal. Service was slow because there was only one person to take place of all the restaurant. She was doing her best but sometimes we were feeling we were forgotten.

Went once again for dinner for my son’s birthday, and had a wonderful time. He requests le Boucan every year, and we were not disappointed. He received a complimentary dessert which made him feel like a little kid, and it was AMAZINGLY GOOD!

As always delicious. We highly recommend the ribs with grilled vegetables and fries, the Alabama Tofu Sandwich as well as the veggie poutine with a Mescalita cocktails. The staff is extraordinary friendly and the atmosphere cozy and warm. It’s our favorite place in the city.

I love this place but the food was not as good as it normally is. The brisket is usually moist and tender. It was tender enough but somewhat dry. Consistency is an important thing.

Here, mac and cheese is served in a small pot, similar to the way a classic French onion soup is served. And do you know what? It's just as good!

For a taste of Montreal's Griffintown

Chicken wings, poutine and ribs are just some of the dishes that appear on Le Boucan’s menu, which is inspired by the cuisine found in the Southern United States and in Montreal diners. Thanks to its vintage decor, you may feel that you're somewhere other than Griffintown!
