      There is a new kid on the block in the burger business. Billy K‘s has now opened three locations in Montreal and is doing quite well. Their extensive menu goes beyond burgers. Mtlrestorap enjoyed having an early taste of their food a day before their grand opening. My diet throughout the years has been burgers. I had them all over North America. I can honestly say that I was quite surprised by the Billy Burger. It knocked my socks off! Billy K’s Pointe-Claire is the family’s newest addition.

      I travel to Cornwall quite often. It is about 30 minutes from my house. So I was aware of Billy K‘s when I shopped at some of Ontario’s finer grocery stores in Cornwall. I was surprised to learn that Mike CohenMtlResoRap’s premier reviewer, hooked up with Tom Bountis, the founder and creator of the Allô! Mon Coco chain. Tom Bountis came to love Billy K‘s and learned that the owner was going to sell. Tom, his sister Fotini, and partners Melih Batri and John Sanoudakis decided to purchase the brand and expand it to Montreal and beyond.

      I ordered the Billy Burger with regular poutine. I can tell you that this was the freshest burger I have had in a long time. It looks like a Big Mac but uses Triple-A Angus beef with an amazing sauce. The Billy Burger was authentic, unlike other burgers out there. The Billy Burger literally melted in my mouth; it was so soft and enjoyable to eat. Their signature sauce is a must! The poutine was out of this world. Lately, hamburgers from some fast-food restaurants just taste bland and are not cutting it for me. My experience was very enjoyable. My poutine was made with fresh-cut fries, gooey sauce, and cheese curds.

      My wife had the Chicken Club BLT with onion rings. She really enjoyed her meal. The fresh chicken and bun were very scrumptious.

      Billy K‘s has an extensive menu for all appetites. Let’s begin with the hamburgers. Billy K’s has ten different hamburgers to pick from. Hot dogs are plentiful, with eight different varieties. They have 11 poutine offerings and fries with different toppings, such as cajun, parmesan, and sauce. You can pick seven different options in both submarine and wrap form. You’ve got a family to feed, and you can choose a family size from three options. There is a hot dog family box, a hamburger box, and a submarine box. If these portions are too big for the little ones, Billy K’s has kid-friendly sizes.

      Billy K’s Pointe-Claire is at 46 Brunswick Blvd., #46-C, Pointe-Claire, Quebec. Service options include dine-in and curbside pickup. Orderubereats.comskipthedishes.com.

      Athena Pizzeria restaurant, a great new find on West Island

        Every neighborhood has a cozy dependable pizzeria in Montreal. The West Island has a handful of great pizzerias. I discovered Athena Pizzeria in Pierrefonds-Roxboro close to Boulevard Sources. This fine eatery is no stranger to the loyal patrons of the area. If you bowl at Bowl-O-Drome, you will most likely grab a sub or pizza at Athena Pizzeria.
