So far my favorite place in Toronto, Adamson BBQ is a Texan theme BBQ restaurant located in East York, Toronto. Their lines are huge but I guarantee you, TOTAL WORTH IT!
45 minutes waiting time
So when you arrive at 176 Wicksteed Ave, East York you will wait in a line. That’s perfect normal for a space that can sit 50 people and have high quality products.
Also you should be aware that Adamson BBQ does not open on Sundays/Mondays. Their work hours are Tuesday to Saturday 11a.m. to 2p.m., that is…if you want to try the best Torontonian Barbecue you should be prepared for long wait time and short available time for eat. That’s probably the main reason why a lot of consumer opt for “To Go” option and enjoy that incredible brisket piece at home.
After the line you will order right next to the counter, in a popular “Subway” style. F.y.i.: The guy wearing a hat is Adam.
You can choose between a variety of meats – briskets, ribs, turkey, sausages; sandwiches – brisket and turkey; platters – for 2 or for 5; desserts and sides.
You pay by weight, side size and variety. I had brisket for myself but I tried the Turkey Sandwich, sausage and ribs from my wife and friends.
If you can’t eat it all, you are welcome to go and wrap it up your leftovers. They serve Pepsi beverages and you can eat very well for $20-$25 bucks.
The staff is very welcome and they all look like friends and family working together, having fun and doing what they love. Maybe that’s the key for so many success.
If you are a meat lover, this place is a must to go.
