Buster Rhino's set to open first Toronto smokehouse

Buster Rhino's is already renowned for its championship barbecue served at rib festivals across Ontario, and at brick and mortar locations in Whitby and Oshawa. Now, the smokehouse is set to open its first outpost in downtown Toronto.

The newest Buster Rhino's is due to open this spring at 838 College Street where Phil's Original BBQ operated since 1991 before joining the deadpool last February. It will be helmed by Michelle Edgar and Jason Poynton (owners of Sweet Escape Patisserie), along with Manon Hurtubise and Irene Tzaras (former owners of Grindhouse Coffee).

While the the expanding chain of smokehouses already boasts a cult following, it will open in a newly saturated BBQ landscape in Little Italy - one where Baju and Backwoods are both serving up their own takes on slow smoked fare in near proximity.

What do you think - are you excited for the opening of Buster Rhino's in Toronto?
