Located on St Clair West- West of Bathhurst, you'll find The Stockyards tucked in between many little restaurants and stores. This family friendly restaurant features comfort food and diner classics, as well as authentic wood smoked Carolina style BBQ. The first page of their site explains: "The Stockyards respectfully embraces traditional methods of dry curing, aging, and smoking that require time and patience."
Seating about 25 people at a time, this cozy diner is a lot of fun to visit with a friend or child. If you bring a younger one, they will certainly be entertained if you manage to score a seat over looking the cooks who fry, grill and sear your meal right in front of you. The drinks are served in old style bottles and the straws are even appealing! No liquor! You may have to wait to be seated anywhere from 2 to 10 min, but I can't see waiting longer then that. The food is quick, delicious, and people don't tend to hang around.
Fairly priced, you can have a meal consisting of a burgur, or sandwich, or wings in a combo with fries (Delicious!) and a drink and walk our paying 10 to 15 dollars. Definitely worth every penny!
There are no tables, just bar stools, and I would even wait to have a seat looking over the cooking area.
They provide take-out--no reservations.
The staff are friendly and the owner thanked us on our way out, many news clippings of his restaurant are posted on the entrance wall. There was no problem splitting my bill with my friend even though we asked for that at the end.
Really neat aesthetically, worth a try!
