About Lou Dawgs BBQ

Lou Dawg's BBQ in King West offers a full range of BBQ items including poutine, sandwiches and wraps, pulled pork, pulled chicken, BBQ beef brisket, southern smoked meat platters and more. You can round out your meal with a delicious side like black bean corn salad, sweet potato mash or a crunchy garden salad with smoky balsamic dressing.

You could say that at Lou Dawg's BBQ in King West, carnivores are welcome, but others are tolerated!

Wash it all down with Lou's smoked lemon southern tea (take it slow though, it's got a double shot of Jack Daniels) and for dessert try a double chocolate brownie, or ask about the dessert specials. Lou Dawg's BBQ in King West is the place to bring your appetite, and your hungry friends!

 (Toronto)·Dined on July 19, 2012

Food was great - poutine tasty, ribs succulent and dry rubbed wings amazing. Pity about the service - we sat outside on the patio and waited for a long time to get menus and the table wiped down. We waited even longer for the bill and in the end gave up trying to get the waitress's attention and went inside to pay. She seemed more interested in talking to her friend's than serving us.
