Swiss Chalet has been serving it's fresh, never frozen, signature rotisserie chicken in Canada since 1954.
Today a friend and I had decided to come to 'Swiss Chalet' for lunch. It has been a couple of years since either of us had been, so we were kind of excited to try it again.
Upon entering, the large restgaurant was pretty quiet with only a couple of taqbles being occupied (It was around 3:00 anyways, so perhaps it was before the dinner rush would come) the waitress seated us at a nice location and all, but we were a little surprised that they didn't just allow us to seat ourselves anywhere in the restaurant given that there were only one or two other tables being occupied (but oh well)
The waitress gave us time to look at our menu, and we had finally decided what we were going to order.
I ordered the quarter chicken (All white meat) and 1/2 rack ribs combo with fries and a bit of coleslaw. My friend had ordered a chicken quesadilla with no fries, but added coleslaw. I ordered a Pepsi to drink, but my friend just stuck with water.
Our food took longer than it takes at most other restaurant chains, and considering that it was slow we were kind of surprised (but, I believe it is a healthier alternative to other regular chains, so perhaps they take more time and pride with their food) However, we were not too pleased that we saw tables (including our own) without cutlery, and we had to go to a un occupied table and snatch some cutlery from there.
Anyhow, the food came. I also got a side of Chalet Sauce (which is pretty much cinnamon gravy) our food was pretty good and enjoyable, but the Chalet Sauce was not great at all. and my friend couldn't finish one of her quesadillas, so let me have it. It was good, but seemed to have more bell peppers in it than actual chicken.
All in all, except for the slow service, the food was pretty good and we did have a good time.
We will be back
