Map of Great CHICKEN joints in Montreal
Trying something here so it can become a referral thread that tourist and Montrealers can see on the map on the right side of the threads. It's called "Place Mentioned" with a google map pointing to the places.
New Instructions to map a restaurant:
Let's not have any discussions here and just name the place
by clicking the tab that says "Manage Your Links" section below your post area.
You can also use that mechanism to add a new restaurant to the chowhound database.

CHICKEN on GAS grill.
Armenian or Lebanese style? Let's just say Med style
Like the Portuguese and some Lebanese this one is served in the butterfly shape
At this place the chicken is pre-cooked and finished on the gas grill but is verry tasty.

Les Deux Fours Restaurant

Cote St-Luc Bar-B-Q on cote st-luc ouest of Decarie boul.
Côte St Luc Bar-B-Q

At Abu Elias, how do like your chicken done? They have it grilled on charcoal, rotisserie & also broasted(they have a broasted fried chicken machine?).
Surprisingly, IGA on Cote-St-Luc road, in Cote-St-Luc plaza has fantastic rotisserie chickens comparable to chalet
Its not a "chicken joint" but the Chicken Shawarma at Chez Benny express is absolutely divine. The grilled meat cooked on a rotating spit with spices and the secret ingredient: Lamb fat on top that drips into the chicken.
It may cost twice as much as your typical pita, but you get twice as much meat and the condiments are homemade as well as delicious top notch. Completely different from your typical lebanese place.
Please do note that they are Kosher and therefore closed for jewish holidays. I'm knocked my head on the door a few times!
P.S. I don't know how related it is to Chez Benny and I haven't (yet) been to the "Original" Chez Benny to compare
Chez Benny Express
2075 St Louis, Saint-Laurent, QC H4M1P1, CA
5071 Ch Queen-Mary, Montreal, QC H3W1X4, CA
