The photos I am sharing in this post are not ones that I took that day, but in January 2011, on another occasion that I went to this fabulous restaurant!
I have seen many food blogs and I really don't expect my post here to compete with any of them! They are so well done and amazing. However, this is a place that I just love so much and just wanted to share it with you all. This restaurant has been at the same location since its inception....it first opened its doors in 1944, and has been a favourite of many over the decades, including myself! There is only one location and it does extremely well!
It was very busy when Linda and I went a couple of days ago, and there was a lineup of about 12 or so people outside waiting for their turn to get seats. If you ever get a chance to visit this restaurant if you are in the Montreal area, you will not be disappointed, I can assure you. The food is amazing at great prices, it is clean, the service is fabulous and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. You could drive by this place in your car and just see the sign but have no idea how wonderful it really is until you go in and have a meal there.
I got my first taste of Chalet Bar-B-Q's food when I was just 4 years old in early 1961. I have been hooked ever since. They have, in my opinion, THE best barbecue chicken anywhere. It is tender, succulent and moist...yet well cooked. The french fries are nothing like McDonald's. These are real homemade potatoes and they are cooked to a lovely deep brown...yet they are not greasy. The coleslaw is awesome, just a hint of vinegar and not too strong. You can opt for a baked potato instead of french fries, and it is a generous portion served with butter and sour cream. The portions are not skimpy and I highly recommend this restaurant! Their slogan is "Ask anyone who knows." Believe me, I know, and it is the best place for chicken in Montreal!
Here are the photos I took of this restaurant in January 2011.
This first photo is on the wall outside of the restaurant. It was a quiet time when I took the photos...but I can assure you that this restaurant has very little "quiet time". There is a good reason why it is still there since 1944!
