Amazing smoked meats (pastrami to die), delicious perogies and Canadian beef. A great find for ex-pats in Mexico craving a taste of home. The owner is super friendly and accomodating. Service excellent. Prices reasonable. If only he could get some fabulous cheese! I will become a frequent visitor.

Finally a place in PDC for great smoked meats. I especially liked the garlic sausage and the brisket. I'll be back to try the rest. Don't just take my word, go yourself. They will let you taste whatever you want.

This little shop is a little hidden, but well worth the search! Went for the first time today and picked up some pastrami (first time I've had it in 12 years of living in the Riviera!!) and some garlic sausage. Both amazingly delicious! I will DEFINITELY be back! Can't recommend this place enough! Try it - you won't be disappointed!

We found this place at the north end of 15th in the plaza de coba. Good homemade sausages,Brats, corned beef, ect. It's worth hunting down for that grilled sausage dinner. The "hot Italian" was flavorful but lacked fennel and had a finer grind then what we are used to. Tasty, lean corned beef, and good perogies too! They had just... More

Eat in or take out pounds of your favorite meats. We love the fact that we can purchase true deli style meats. Sliced as you like right before your eyes and always consistent quality! They are happy to let you try everything in the meat case. VERY GOOD!

Is it just more marketing or are they really good. We had the prime rib steak, the smoked bacon, the Mennonite sausage and the chorizo. The rib steaks were good but expensive. Go to Walmart and buy the Sonoran beef and you will get as good or better at more reasonable prices. The smoked bacon is without a doubt the... More

We've never eaten in, but we buy all our smoked meats from PDC. They have a variety of ham, sausage, bacon and roast beef all smoked to perfection. The seasonings are fabulous. I highly recommend them. The owner Jim smokes all the products himself.

The food is all hand made with great attention to detail. This is authentic European style meats, home made with all the flavor and carefully done so there is very little fat. They also make perogies from scratch. Take a little time out of your schedule and enjoy a taste of home. The owner is very friendly and really goes... More

************PDC MEATS, IS NOT Far from my condo so I walk and buy my meat there, and cook it at home. Very good, and the owner is real nice. Too bad he can't have a exist on Paseo Coba side, but I walk around to the back its ok.

I read about this place yesterday on this site so we took a walk and found it, is a bit out of way and hidden but not that far 5th ave really.
