Wilensky's is a hidden gem in Montreal. Since 1932, Wilensky's has been doing the same routine when preparing their meals. This restaurant is special as it historically takes you back many years when deli's were arranged the way Wilensky's is. I had a hotdog and...More

The traditional salami sandwich is just as good as it was in 1932. Or so they say, because I wasn't around in 1932.LOL. Moe Wilensky is no longer there, but the family perpetuates the tradition by maintaining the high quality standards that made them famous...More

Walking into this place you feel the history, with its classic style stool-and-counter seating and the wall full of newspaper articles about this Montreal landmark established in 1932. The daughter of the original owner still runs the place and if you arrive at a less...More

You have their home made salami and baloney sandwich with yellow mustard for the experience of eating a sandwich that has been made the same for almost 75 years. The ambience, signs and pictures of the wall tell the story. There will never be another...More
