Great spot, authentic food! We were by the door so I frozen the entire time but I would definitely go back.
For a "BBQ" place it was pretty disappointing...
Do you have a platter so we can sample? - No
Can I order the brisket on it's own (not in a sandwich)? - No
Can we try the Rib Ends as an app? - No, we sold out last night.
Wow. For a BBQ place the emphasis did not appear to be on the BBQ food.
I've been to plenty of BBQ places all across the US and several in the GTA, and this was far and away the most disappointing. I asked for the brisket without the bread to really get a feel for how good it was and it still came smothered in special sauce, crispy onions, & cheddar cheese!
If you've never had real BBQ before, it might be a novelty.
On the bright side, the service was friendly, music lively and their own beers were good.
Had a hankering for some BBQ and there aren't a lot of credible options this far north. Gave it a try. Dinner for two with tip was 55, so not breaking banks but not dirt cheap. Food was ok but for a man that loves BBQ and was hoping to get blown away. Did not happen. Good and friendly service. Not in a rush to go back for just that though. For me this would be a shrug to go back if someone else made the suggestion.
Service was great - no complaints at all. The food was the major disappointment. Blackened fish sandwich tasted like it was made from frozen fish (mushy), and the sandwich lacked depth of flavour. The brisket sandwich my wife had was dry and tasteless.
This was unfortunately the first dinner I've booked for myself/my wife/friends in the past few years where we were utterly disappointed
Really nice food at a decent price. Friendly staff definatley go back again.
Food was amazing. Brisket was best I’ve had in a while. Can’t wait to come back.
Food was really good. Had the hushpuppies, grilled pork ribs and Nashville hot chicken and all were really good.
Very casual but fun feel atmosphere. A little pricey for the portion size but all and all would definitely recommend.
Had such a fabulous experience at Electric Mud! I have always wanted to go and try their food and was blown away by tremendously tasty bbq cuisine. I couldn’t decide on what to order and our server was super helpful and engaging. She was top notch, just like the food! Would 100% go back and recommend the food to anyone looking for a hip cool joint with amazing food and service. See you soon Electric Mud 👌🏻
Great brisket on a bun and buffalo cauliflower! Feels like a Diners Drive In’s and Dives place which I love. Small, great little outside area and great throwback music playing! A 5 overall because I loved the vibe, laid back feel, brisket and buffalo cauliflower
The best bbq in Toronto! Great atmosphere, beer list, heated patio and OH MON DIEU THE MUD PIE!!!
Third time eating here and always happy with the service and the food
Absolutely amazing all around. The crack bread was fight worthy lmao.
The food was amazing and the staff was equally as amazing. We mentioned we were not from Toronto and our waiter asked the others that worked with him for some great recommendations for us to check out! We had a few cocktails (all amazing) and the pulled pork and brisket. Both were delicious but the brisket was outstanding. We were sad we ate here on our first night in town because we definitely would have eaten here again!!! Electric Mud will be #1 on our list every time we are in Toronto
Great crew, cocktails, menu... taste!
The Nashville Hot Chicken was very good and the house lager was a good price. The ambience of the restaurant was fun and casual. The music in the background was good.
The only thing was that it was a bit drafty and cold in the restaurant if you were not dressed warmly. Other than that it was a good experience to get together with friends.
Green P parking was also very close so that was convenient.
Such a cool spot. Come as you are - service was great! Food was packed with flavour and was true BBQ!
The space is quite small - so it makes for a very intimate and a bit squishy seating arrangement.
Bright lights and hip setting at the expense of the food. Beef brisket is served on a sandwich, almost minced, not what you would expect from a bbq joint worth it’s weight. $19 for shrimp = 4 shrimp and fries. The fried chicken is was the only redeeming quality- it’s very good.
Cool atmosphere, very friendly staff, generally bad food.
Lots of good bbq to be had in the city.
Great spot. Food is delicious and friendly as well as helpful staff reconditions were excellent. Location was the only thing I found annoying as we kept getting disturbed by patrons of the surrounding neighbourhood.
After being seated for our reservation and ordering drinks, our server informed us that they were sold out of two of the four main dishes they offered which typically happens around 8pm every day. He also mentioned the menu had recently been changed but no updates had been made to their online menus. I was very unimpressed with the available options - I didn't find they were worth the price tag. As a popular restaurant, they should ensure that they have enough food to complete a Saturday night service - we had a reservation for 8pm on a Saturday and they were not prepared. I would not recommend this spot nor would I want to return.
was not impressed at all, checked it out online before we went and the menu looked good. When we got there many of the items shown online were not on there menu. As far as BBQ goes they only had ribs available. No brisket or pulled pork (sandwiches only) - ribs were tough and had no flavor. Rib ends ran out (we went about a hour after they opened)
Baked beans were runny and didn’t have any meat in them like you’d come to expect with pit beans. Fried chicken was grossly under seasoned.
Online they advertise half racks of ribs - but when we got there they only give 4 bones. Pretty disappointing to go somewhere expecting A BBQ joint and not having any decent options. Poorly executed.
We have been there multiple times - the food is always A+ and we always have a great time.
Staff was very friendly, warm and happy to explain menu
Food was great as was service.
Thanks for having us and helping us celebrate our anniversary.
We had fun! Food was great. Service was excellent. Ambiance is funky, but tired!
I come to this restaurant often, but on Sunday night, the food just wasn’t as good as it usually is. I will still keep coming and recommending to friends, just wasn’t as satisfied this time around.
staff all works together to ensure all clientele are happy.
food was amazing, although the sauce on the brisket sandwich was unseemly.
loved the loud rock music and colourful, diverse crowd.
daily drink specials.
book ahead, there's about 40 seats here.
Food was amazing! Service needs work, no server for a while in the beginning.... didn't give us menus, also had to ask for cutlery.
Server had to double check if there was enough chicken.
Vibe is great, ambiance and food as well. Servers/customer service needs major improvement.
As always food was great and service excellent. While not specifically a family spot, they are more than accommodating of kids.
Food was okay but inconsistent quality seems to be a trend since it was WAY better in the times we have been in june and july...for an okay bbq platter: not worth the trek to the sketchy area and wont return
Good Messy Grub, casual aesthetic & great F*@#ing cocktails. Yum! Loved our Server!
Great BBQ, Awesome portions and service was A1. The brisket was the best I have ever had!!
My husband and I have been meaning to check this place out for some time. We were seated in the patio which was really nice. The heaters were on which took the chill out of the air. We ordered a small selection of wings, ribs, and sides, all of which were delicious. We will definitely be back! And our waiter was awesome.
The food is fantastic here, best fried chicken in Toronto. Also try the fried caluflower, it's delicious! Staff are friendly and attentive. It's very busy so always reserve in advance if possible.
Endroit très sympathique. Petit, alors il faut réserver. Sans prétention autant pour la famille qu'une sortie entre amis. Tout sauf chic.
AMAZING AS ALWAYS!!!
The dinner for 2 platter with a variety of meat and salads was amazing! The meat was smoked and so flavourful. The service was also amazing. The staff are fast and friendly. My only critique was the state of the bathroom. Water barely came out of the taps.
Surprised hubby for our anniversary because he loves BBQ. This place was super casual, great service and amazing food!
This place is amazing. Though in the smaller side, its very lovely. The people, the food, the music, all was very enjoyable. After all, any place you go to where everylne burst out singing Prince is fantastic!!
