This restaurant is a throwback to the 60's. Pine paneling, coconut cream pie, the waitresses all look like someone's mom and double deep fried French fries. It's all there. The chicken is exactly the way it has always been. The sauce is good. Coleslaw comes in a paper cup, salad well if you must but it's not what mom the... More

Chicken, slaw, and fries......what really makes this place a standout is it's decor. Seventy years of happy customers; I wonder what stories the knotty pine panelling could tell.

This is my first 'food stop' on the list of "must eat when in Montreal." Inexpensive and delicious which is why Montreal locals have been coming here for decades. Chicken, fries, slaw and an extra side of sauce and you have a little bit of heaven. Yes the decor is quite outdated, but really, would it be the same if... More

I always have the breast plate as the chicken leg is too raw for me and dangerously undercooked. It's a Mtl staple place for a quick and good... More

This restaurant has a 1940's charm about it. I have been going here for almost 50 years and it's by far the best chicken and fixings in the city. If you like rotisserie slow cooked chicken, this place is not to be missed. Large comfortable booths line the walls, and many of the staff have been there for decades. They... More

If you like chicken...go here...period... the best ever... and inexpensive for Montreal...more food than we could eat for 25 total...salad/soup 1/4 breast and plate full of fries.. yum yum! Open since 1944 and nothing has changed in this "quaint" place...which is nice in this day and age of constant change.

This restaurant has been here for decades and the reason is the fabulous rotisserie chicken with fresh cut fries done in lard, crunchy Cole-slaw all served with amazing speed by great waitresses. Absolutely delicious fare at great prices. Highly recommended.

I have been dining at the chalet since I could sit on my mom's lap (over 40 years). Staff is super friendly and oh so quick to bring the delicious rotisserie chicken. Excellent quality and value (family meal is $26.95) Best Fries Ever

This place does only chicken, so be aware of this. I never had a chicken that taste so good. Nice place that reminds a Swiss chalet. Prices are very small and the quality is so good that this place deserve to be visited.
