Excellent rotisserie chicken

The place was established in 1944, and the dining room looks like it hasn't changed too much. But like a couple of other places in Montreal (like Schwartz's Deli), i feel it has a lot of character. The chicken was excellent. (Moist and skin was a bit crisp) Definitely better than Swiss Chalet and... read more

This is the best BBQ chicken. Beats St Hubert BBQ by miles. St Hubert has the sauce but Chalet BBQ has the chicken. Good fries too! Good choice!

Easily the best rotisserie joint around. There's a reason this place has done so well since 1944. No change to their business model, even their decor has never changed!. Simple menu: chicken, and boy did they perfect it. The chicken soup is among the best I ever had. The coleslaw is spot on. The french fries are simply incredible. You... More

I have yet personally hear or seen for myself say to my face that the chicken here is subpar, even on its bad days the chicken here is better than perhaps 99% of chicken serving restaurants. Good price for a fulfilling meal.

When I have a Craving for BBQ Chicken, I don't even Think about calling anywhere but Chalet. The Chicken , Fries , Sauce & Cole Slaw are Superb. Fries are prepared & done in house. Chicken has that authentic smoke BBQ Taste. It's been over 40 years since my first visit. Always awesome..

The other places can't compare - Chalet Bar-B-Q is the absolute best when it comes to chicken. Always juicy & tender, never dry; superior fries, fabulous gravy. Coleslaw is chopped coarse, vinegar-style only, no creamy version available, pity. Iceberg lettuce in chicken salad plate, could have used a better lettuce. No house salad dressing, just the usual Italian, 1000 Island,... More

When I am craving barbecue chicken, there is only 1 place that satisfies, Rotisserie Chalet Barbecue in NDG. Not part of franchise chain, this Montreal institution has been around for over 60 years. The chicken is moist, the fries made from real potatoes, soft and crispy at the same time, the sauce has a nice spicy tang to it and... More

The last time I was at Chalet BBQ was in 2011 so when recently in Montreal I just had to return. I love this place - the food is SO good, the service is so fast and the price is right - especially at lunch time.
