“A MUST GO!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I come to Romados probably once every couple months. There is pretty much always a lineup for their food!! Very cheap for food that can feed an army! Delicious portuguese chicken grilled to perfection smeared with their spicy sauce...mmmmmmmmm! And if you go before 2pm, you get a free tart with your meal as well!! Down side: MUST be take-out as the restaurant is very small and only has a couple seats.

“Can't make your own this cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Delicious when you're in the mood for some greasy but yummy fast food. The price is unbelievable for the amount of food you get.

“Not worth the bother, but still OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We really made an effort to eat here and were a bit let down. The chicken and 'hot' sauce' were nothing special and the mountain of fries dumped on top were just OK as well. It was still authentic and had the neighborhood feel that usually wins me over, but I would not return let alone make the special effort we did to get there.

“Delicious Portuguese Chicken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Romados has one of the best rotisserie chickens in the city. The prices are incredibly cheap for what you get, and well worth the wait if there's a line (which there usually is). Their sandwiches are superb - although I believe they only have them at lunchtime. Even their baked goods are super tasty.

“Good, Not Great, Chicken at Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

We stopped in here to get dinner to go on our first night in Montreal in 4 years. We had read a lot about it and by the line we were excited. The chicken is good, but not too far of a stretch between a grilled/rotisserie hybrid. There is no atmosphere and eating in is rather unimaginable. They were out of the soup and the rice at 615p when we there and the salad didn't look inspiring so we just went with chicken and fries. The fries are well seasoned, don't need ketchup, but not crispy and gain sogginess by the minute. Since we are not in Montreal often, we probably won't go back. Great stoner/hangover food I imagine.
