Di Lallo's

Sadly another well known Montrealer passes away. I am sure almost all of us have had the experience of eating a Di llao burger I know I had many. My condolences to the Di Lallo family,on the loss of your Dad


DI LALLO, Louis In loving memory of Louis Di Lallo, age 81, who passed away on Sunday March 18, 2018 preceded in death by his loving wife and dancing partner Nicole, father of Louis Jr. (Louise), Natalie and David. Proud Poppa to Stephanie, Peter, Corey, Giuliano, Sophia and Lucas. As well as his brothers Carlos (Patricia), Tony (Helen) and his sister Lauretta. His story started on January 8, 1937. His childhood was spent helping his parents with their family business and later went on to build the Di Lallo Burger dynasty. His hard work and dedication taught his children very valuable life lessons. Besides running the restaurant he also helped run the Hurricane organization helping many under privileged kids play sports. He was always willing to help others and never expected anything in return. He was a quiet but strong man. Although we know he is in a better place our hearts are still heavy over this great loss, a true hero to his family. A special thank you to the staff and especially Marcel Fils Andre at the Royal Vic Palliative Care unit for all of your help in keeping Luigi comfortable. The funeral will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 2 p.m. in at Holy Cross Church. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the SPCA. Please consult and sign the virtual register at

Agreed Bob, Di lallo's was king of the crop without a doubt. The original store also had a little side window that once served as the Taxi dispatch, the call would come into the store and they would yell out the window to the car waiting there at the corner where to go for a pick That was a long time ago. I was introduced to Dillalo's by my older brother who frequented the place as a young guy. Cheers ! Les
