History

Close to 70 years of excellent char-grilled chicken.
OUR HISTORY

A tradition of excellence, since 1953

Côte-St-Luc Bar-B-Q, one of Montreal’s best charcoal-grilled chicken institutions, opened its doors in 1953 on Côte Saint-Luc Road, corner of Earnscliffe Ave. The idea was simple: cook rotisserie chicken on hardwood charcoal to perfection, and that’s what we’ve been serving ever since.

Our second restaurant opened to the public in 1987 in the West Island on Boulevard des Sources. We’ve been serving the West Island of Montreal for close to 35 years.

For almost 70 years, our chefs have kept careful watch over each chicken’s grilling time so they are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. After all these years, we can confidently say that our experience with charcoal rotisserie chicken has aged to perfection.
