There are lots of exciting things happening in the 21e arrondissement project in Old Montreal. Shortly after the opening of Cafe District, a little earlier this Fall, Tejano BBQ Burrito is now opening a restaurant on William Street. With a first address in Saint-Henri, Old Montreal was a logical choice for the owners of the Tejano BBQ Burrito, also behind the Black Strap BBQ joint in Verdun.
“We thought that the Tejano would be a good food fit for the neighborhood” says Dylan Kier, one of the 3 owners.
“I like Old Montreal a lot, there’s a lot of things going on” he adds.
Tejano BBQ Burrito, which offers tex-mex cuisine, was born out of the love of Dylan for mexican cuisine and Texan BBQs. With Clara Barron and Ryan Bloom, the first Tejano BBQ Burrito opened in Saint-Henri in 2014. 2 years later, Tejano is opening a second one in Old Montreal, to the delights of neighborhood residents and workers.
Burritos are the star of the menu, but tacos and salads are also available. The meats, whether it’s the pulled pork, the chicken tinga or the BBQ Beef are slowly smoked and cooked following a recipe elaborated and tested until it reached perfection.
“We do very high quality burritos, made with very high quality ingredients, we have big portion sizes, it’s very fresh with a lot of healthy choices”, says Dylan.
“We are very quick as well, the service is very fast and friendly”.
Pickled onions, radishes, spanish rice, refried pinto beans or salsa are only a few of the options offered to garnish your burritos.
The restaurant offers a few seated places so it’s perfect for a quick bite or for take out. We bet it’s soon going to be one of your favorites spots in Old Montreal.
