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 server was working hard but she was only one to manage both rooms, the bar, and take out orders. So everything took longer. Will rethink going there on Mondays. Great food though.

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.

The food was delicious and the servers were very nice and knowledgable. Fantastic service. I was surprised and delighted to see that they had a huge selection of vegetarian dished as well. We ordered lots of food to try them out like the pulled pork poutine, to the smoked tofu sandwich to bacon brownies. Excellent experience!!

We sat on the back terrace. The tables and chairs were covered with wet leaves. You would think that by 7pm they would have had time to clean this up. The service was slow. It was somewhat busy and they were clearly understaffed. When served our food, they basically dropped the plates in front of us and never paid any attention to us until we asked for the check. Forget about getting ketchup or mayo with your fries...I had ordered a drink during my meal which never came. The food was ok but nothing special. Considering how bad the service was, I will not return.

The food here was amazing! Everyone in our party enjoyed their choices. The standouts for me were the pulled pork poutine and the Alabama smoked chicken sandwich. Service was a little patchy, but the prices were great for the size of the serves and the quality of the food.

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!

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!
