Cote St-Luc BBQ

With Au Coq and Swiss Chalet, Cote St-Luc BBQ is the kid of rotisserie chicken that I like. I never liked St-Hubert, I find their chicken without flavor. Off course I'm not comparing any to the portuguese charcoal chicken. That<s my favorite. Also I must say I don't like COCORICO rotisserire chicken, also without flavor unless you spray it with the hot sauce (piri piri).

Is ther any Cote St-Luc still open other than the one on Cote St-Luc road?
Hope they will survive I think there's only 2 left. Sad :-(

Swiss Chalet vanished from the province of Quebec and Au Coq is more in the north and east end of montreal. I need something in the Dorval area.

  1. There's a Cote-St-Luc BBQ on Cote-de-Liesse - think that would be the closest one to Dorval:

    6971, Côte de liesse

      Last time I drove to the Airport(Jan 09) I could have sworn that CSL BBQ was closed and Semi Trailers were using the large parking lot in the back for parking.

      1. re: finefoodie55

        Ah - didn't know; of course the Web site wouldn't tell you something that useful. ;-) Guess the OP could give them a call to find out for sure.

          My office is very close to the CSL BBQ in Cote de Liesse. I was in the ofice all day, and went online and ordered my chicken.

          It arrived 20 minutes later...VERY good, though not as good as Chalet BBQ of course. I finish eating, and put the garbage back inti the paper delivery bag and happen to glance at my says Good Luck BBQ on it. ??? Address in Dorval. ???

          Recheck the website, says CSL. Compare phone numbers, the same. I figured that the websire was hacked and nobody noticed!

          Long stort short, the owners of the CDL location moved and did not keep the CSL BBQ name, though they are oblogated to keeep the website running until later this year.

          The most important thing is that the chicken is real BBQ, and was pretty darn good.

            ahh, so that's why they wouldn't deliver to me in St. Laurent a few months ago, when they had previously. how sneaky. the food at the CDL location was always good.

            1. re: davidpg

              I tried the Good Luck BBQ place yesterday.

              As I was going in I was wondering if I should wish myself Good Luck or will they wish me Good Luck as they serve my plate? Somebody need to tell them about their wonderful marketing scheme for a name like that. Maybe because of all the 7 in the old CSL tel number.

              It was pretty the same taste as Côte St-Luc BBQ and I enjoyed my meal. So when in the Dorval airport area, I know where to go now.

              As mentioned before, the taste of CSL, Good-Luc and Chalet Swiss is in the same range for me. The charcoal tatse. In my opinion Chalet BBQ doesn't not taste the same at all. I would say it's more in the range of Rotisserie Au COQ. Many use the word BBQ but it's not BBQ it's more Rotisserie.

              Portuguese chicken is more like real BBQ or GRILLING

              Here's alink to the word BBQ from wikipedia

              here the address of GOOD LUCK
              (514) 636-0300 or the old Cote St-Luc number (514) 737-7772
              Address : 1771 av Cardinal
              Dorval, QC , H9P1Y5

              ohh yeah, I think this place is the first chicken boutique restaurant !
              On their wall they have some interesting egyptian art for sale. If you're into mummies and pyramid decoration, this is the place. Don't know the price, didn't ask.

              1. re: maj54us

                can't say I'm surprised- the old CSL on CDL had belly dancing on certain nights! :-)

                1. re: maj54us

                  We live in Dorval, and eat at the Good Luck B.B.Q. often. It's much better now, than when it was the Tri-Star Restaurant.

                  I want to recommend the specialty, the BBQ chicken platters. The club sandwiches are also great.

                  They recently changed their vegetarian pizza (if not the latest menu) to our great delight. It's comparable to established neighbourhood Velos Pizzeria Brochetterie (which has also been rated highly); but Good Luck's pizza is much more neat to eat. It even pleased my "picky-vore" companion.

                  We will be eating there as often as they will serve us. Spread the word.

              Went buy CdL location and they are definitely closed.Big for sale sign up now.

              1. re: finefoodie55

                Been closed since at least first or second week of November, actually. I was out there for work and noticed it looked quiet, and the lot being used to park semis as already noted.

          2. There's a location on Sources in the WI.

            4360 Boul Des Sources, Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, QC H8Y3B7, CA

              Do these secondary CSL BBQ locations have a charcoal rottiserie unit, like the original CSL BBQ location still has?

              1. re: BLM

                I don't know, I've never been.

            2. Chalet BBq on Sherbrooke is a must for that kind of chicken. CSL on cote st luc road is awful.

              1. re: blondee_47

                why is CSL awful? Can you ellaborate?

                My latest experience was not the greatest but they managed to accomodate me with apologies. I received my chicken leg and it was dry. Like it has been cooked to much and sat for a while. Told the waitress and she got me another peace that was really good and juicy.

                There's a new Portuguese chicken place on Mont-Royal avenue near Lanaudiere street I think. Anyone tried it?

                1. re: blondee_47

                  You know, you should substantiate your claims. It's easy to come on the board and say this is great and that is awful. But most people want to know why it's great or awful. What's awful to you might be delicious to me.

                  Maybe it's nostalagia or maybe not, but I love the soggyish fries, that are a little bit sweet, and they sauce and the stupid hamburger buns. Now, by far is that not my french fry ideal, but nothing beats CSL BBQ fries with gravy, chicken breast, cole slaw and bun when you're in the mood - and all in one bite that is.

                2. maison, very house eating, the chicken usually has no taste: no seasoning and very bland and too soft to sometmes even have a chew at. The sauce looks like it came out of a Costco can sized for restaurants. To order in which is often for us and chicken, it took many times of receiving chickens that looked three days old and tasted like they were three days old ie very dry, for us to finally decide no more garbage food.

                  1. Chalet Bar b q never house chicken is deliciously "rotissed" and is just soft enough to still have to chew. In house ie delivery has never disappointed us in quality it is always up to its restaurant's par. CSL on the other hand as stated but I will re-iterate, saves its leftover chickens for delivery, i think at least that is what they usually taste like.

                      I hate to burst your bubble, but their business is very brisk and I doubt that there is any "leftover" chicken.

                      1. re: blondee_47

                        I enjoy both places. I have never seen any leftover chicken at Cote St Luc.
