Neighbourhood staple in ndg

This place has a great location right off Decarie on Sherbrooke with lots of free parking in the back. And it's still going strong after many years. Montreal style rotisserie chicken at its best with amazing gravy and fries.

The restaurants Swiss Chalet got it's beginning here! It has been voted the best barbecue chicken in Montreal. The meal is delicious and the priced very reasonably especially for lunch. The meal includes a small coleslaw in a vinaigrette, chicken, fresh cut fries,half a bun, sauce and a drink. A lot of ex montrealers still return here just to buy... More

My wife and I were in Montreal and stopped here for lunch. We had to wait around 10 minutes on a Tuesday at 1pm, which is generally a good sign and good start! The servers are running around ragged, but pleasant enough when they get around to your table. They have some lunch specials which include the chicken, fries, cole... More

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 St. Hubert. The coleslaw was also... 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
