Whether you plan on celebrating 4/20 or it’s just another day and your cannabis delivery order with the SQDC just arrived, getting the munchies in Montreal can be a surprisingly difficult thing to navigate. You’re hungry for something, but you just don’t know what. We get it. That’s the tricky part about picking up some marijuana in Montreal from a dispensary—you want the selection to require as little space in your brain as possible. Here, you’ll find a bunch of solid options—distilled down from the best delivery and takeout in Montreal—where it’s cheap eats that go down easy and are oh-so-satisfying. 

RECOMMENDED: Full guide to the best things to do at home in Montreal

Something Greasy

Hard to go without a standard classic in this city. Uniburger’s got enough locations that it can serve just about any corner of Montreal’s map, doing burgers justice with a simple yet effective recipe: Smash burgers are served with cheese and special sauce on a potato roll. Better yet, make it a double with fried onions and bacon on top, a side poutine, and maybe a milkshake on the side.

The expansion of this burger chain’s territory in the city’s a good sign. They know how to do a good greasy meal without any pretension: Stacked burgers with different themes and flavors (or just building your own), an order of mac and cheese with ribs on the side, loaded hot dogs and fried cheese curds? The size of your order’s gonna be so big you can tear the paper bag up and use it for the nap that’s sure to follow.


Don’t let the name fool you—this ain’t Mexican food, nor is it pretending to be. While they look like burritos, they’re more like shawarmas that are filled with fried meats and veggies (fried avocado as a filling, natch), sauce and a lot of cheese. Pair these with a bucket of fries, maybe one of those ‘hazlenut explosions’ for dessert, and chill out.

Something Cheesy

Nothing gets cheesier than this NDG spot and its accompanying food truck. They’ve got their cheesy goods to go right now, offering up a menu that’s full of mac and cheese, grilled cheese, cheese steaks, poutines—all of which can come with extra cheese—so you can bet that the best cheese pulls ought to come from this spot. Did we mention their menu features cheese?

Tony Campanelli may not call his down-to-earth pizza remniscient of New York-style, but gosh darn it, it’s the closest we can come to a descriptor. Large, floppy pizzas by the pie or slice are simply flying out of the oven here and come in a range of cheesy varieties like tomato basil, calabrese sausage, rapini and ricotta or specials like smoked meat pizza that comes with pickles and mustard.


Pizza’s always a safe bet when it comes to cravings for cheesy eats, but few pizzerias can do a solid cheesy pie like Amelia’s in the McGill Ghetto. They’re up and operational for to-go goods, with one menu item reigning supreme among them all: The White Pizza. A blend of five cheeses (including ricotta among them) and tomato sauce is served on fluffy, thick-crusted ‘za is something that’ll give you your cheese fix and then some.

Something Massive

When munchies hit, sometimes you just want something that will make you want to loosen your belt. Few deliver as well as this expansive chain of Quebec restaurants that have their fair share of massively stacked burgers, crazy poutines, mac and cheeses that come with crushed Fritos (see: Ringolos) as toppings, donut holes, slice of cheesecake… Just be sure that before you pick up that phone that you’re within delivery distance, but given their expansion across the island, chances are something’s available.

Sometimes there’s no better way to appease an appetite than filling up on large platters of sausages, fries and fill-to-burst doners done Berlin-style. Most of Station Berlin’s menu items are enough to fill someone up, but if you think your hunger’s insatiable, grab a schnitzel platter, a currywurst plate, a large poutine for a follow-up and get back to us. It’s more than enough and tastes damn good.


There’s a reason why most people tend to order the regular size of burrito from this Tex-Mex counter spots with a couple locations in the city; the large size is big enough to serve as two meals. If you’re feeling adventurous, order one up with all the fixings—and we mean all of the fixings, from crushed tortilla chips to extra guac and crema—and just try to get through a whole one in one sitting.

Something Spicy

There’s too many delicious things to eat to count on this Singaporean restaurant’s menu, from steamed pork buns to papaya salad and saucy stir-fried noodle dishes. Bonus points go  to how they’ll throw as many bird’s eye chilis and scoops of sambal on to your order as you like for no extra charge; in fact, folks at this institution take it as a challenge and enjoy watching the tears run down your reddening face.

Jerk seasoning is something that gets thrown around menus far too often without delivering, but this Caribbean snack shack delivers. With just the right amount of kick in their jerk chicken and jerk mac and cheese and the options of heaping on extra spicy kicks for fun, there’s few things you can grab here without wishing that glasses of milk were available for delivery as well.


Our latest and most favourite Thai operation in town, Mae Sri does a good mix of spicy and non-spicy stuff to eat if you’re ordering alongside less steel-tongued roommates or loved ones. If you want heat, however, they’ll bring it: Everything on their menu is rated by the amount of hot peppers next to any given item—stir fry with Thai holy basil and their papaya salad rank highest—but let them know you want it hot and they’ll make you wish you didn’t.

Something Fresh

If you want something that won’t make you pass out from an overwhelming amount of cheese or grease, something that’ll freshen you up while appeasing an appetite, Sumac’s a safe bet. Sharwarmas with roasted chicken, sabich with boiled egg and eggplant, fresh-cut veggie salads and a range of mezzes with warm pitas ought to serve you well.

Provided you can get your call in on time or a foot in the door—it’s been just that popular since they launched their takeout and delivery—there’s a lot worth ordering that has all the fresh feel of a well-cooked meal with none of the skyrocketed price points. Ceviches, salads, roasted veg, lamb meatballs, ‘nduja and anchovy toast and that oh-so-popular breakfast sandwich? All available for delivery? Hell yes, class your next smoke sesh up.


Since they launched delivery, Otto’s a solid beat for a full range of skewered and barbecued chicken, especially when coupled with some fresh salads topped with poached eggs or the spicy, crispy rice found in a hot bowl of bibimbap? It’s the perfect thing for a lighter meal that doesn’t skimp on flavor in the slightest. If you like ti spicy, be sure to ask them to throw on some togarishi in your order notes.

Something Sweet

Some of the fluffiest donuts—if not THE fluffiest donuts—in town, Léché Desserts does fat American-style donuts justice while twisting them with flavors that go from refreshing (passion fruit glaze or rosewater and almond) to luxurious (chocolate brownie or raspberry cheesecake). Just be sure to place your order earlier in the day; Léché only makes so many donuts for a given day and the rush to scoop them up daily is growing.

Few things get better than having donuts and cake brought straight to your door; especially when that in-da-cocuh strain just kicked in. What could be more satisfying than taking a bites of maple crème brûlée or Knob Creek ‘n’ bason donuts, a slice of sumptuous maple pie or some vanilla-rum canelles? If you’re ordering, make sure to tack on some croissants or muffins for the morning after.


If you’re able to order in advance, grabbing some of the latest creations from one of Montreal’s best pastry shops is a sure-fire way to satify a sweet tooth. From that delicious kouign amann to soft chocolate-coffee cake, all options on the table are a tad too irresistible to remain on that table for long. Patrice Demers’ work tends to be reserved for special occasions, but they equally have the ability to make any moment you eat it feel like a special occasion.

Something Vegan

All the greats of a diner’s menu can be found—and then some—at Montreal’s vegan claim to fame. This restaurant’s menu spans from portobello burgers and fat, crispy potato wedges with a superb house ketchup to chilis, green bowls slathered in better-than-crack Buddha sauce and a range of cakes that join our picks for the best desserts in Montreal. Better yet, they’ve got more than one location under their belt, which means more chances to score a filling (and healthy!) meal.

Not all meals need be greasy meats or full of ooey-gooey cheese to be fulfilling. Tendresse’s done good work in fulfilling all those old carnivore cravings by offering up menus full of tacos, tater tots, pad thai, poutine, a stellar burger made with squash and more. Single-handedly stealing the vegan show in the Village, they’ve got their goods for takeout right now and—trust us one this one—they won’t judge your red eyes and zombie shuffle in and out the front door.


Vegan Italian eats to the front, especially when they come with a solid selection of wines to pair with your meal; that’s sure to put you in the food coma you need. There’s just as many pizzas and calzones as there is poutine, mac and cheese and arancini to indulge in (plus some tiramisu to sweetly round things out). Good for the environment, good for the soul; this is an exceptional vegan option when you want to load up on carbs.
