6. Casse-Croûte Normand (Friday)
With Verdun becoming the new place to be, this restaurant is one that cannot be missed. Known for their delicious, french fries, this place is the go to restaurant for hot dogs and french fries. It may look like an average greasy spoon but the atmosphere is always friendly and the food is always great. While 10$ may seem a bit expensive for 2 hot dogs and a french fry or a hamburger and a french fry, once you've tasted it you'll agree that it was well worth it.

Enjoy your Saturday night with a meal that will send you to a food coma. Their colossal burgers are not only filling, they're heavenly. Made with fresh Angus beef, these burgers are enough to fill you for the entire day. Their french fries are always fresh and crispy and the lively atmosphere and entertaining decor provide great entertainment. Catch the Habs game while you eat or stay and watch the fight with a pitcher of beer. The entire plate costs under 20$ and is enough food to force even the biggest eaters to unbuckle their pants.
