Phenomenal at Pilot's Pub

Lately I have been feeling like I have wing block or something.  I knew I really needed to check out a few new places but had trouble thinking of a place to go.  I wasn’t feeling downtown lately because with the recent bus strike parking has been terrible. 

So after much thought I ended up at Pilot’s Pub in Dartmouth (fairly close to the new NSCC so it is a great place for students). I sat in the front but noticed on the way out the back of the restaurant had huge windows that gave way for a beautiful view of Halifax.

It’s a pretty big place and I was initially concerned with the lack of other customer’s, especially for a wing night.  Maybe it was due to the temperature, it was pretty chilly in there.  As soon as my order of wings arrived, nothing else seemed to matter.

Wing night is on Wednesday – 10 wings for $5.00.  You’re looking at $9.99 for any other day of the week. 

Breading: 5/5 - A beautiful thick golden brown breading coated each wing.  The description in the menu described them as a “mildly spiced breaded wing”, they were pretty accurate there, you could really taste the spice in the breading. 
Breading perfection!
Overall quality: 5/5 - The chicken had a great taste to it and was super juicy.  One out of ten wings contained a bit of dark meat, those odds aren’t too bad though. 

Sauce selection: 3/5 - Sauce selection includes mild, medium, hot, suicide, honey garlic, sweet n sour and BBQ.  I went with hot on the side, and it sure lived up to it's name. 

Service: 3/5 - The only problem with the service is that I was told at the end of the meal that I should have tried the wings with dry Cajun on.  Dry Cajun on!! I had no idea that was even an option, wasn't listed in the menu.  If she only knew how much of a fan of dry spice on that I actually am.  If I wasn't so full I would have placed another order and went back to my table to indulge. 

Size: 5/5 - If you're an avid reader on this blog, you may realize that I tend to mention my theory on big wings is that they contain lower quality chicken.  These wings were a great size and even the flatties contained a lot of meat.  I don't mind being proven wrong once in a while. 
Huge wing
Overall rating: 4.2/5

I have to say that Pilot’s Pub is now my favourite place for wings in Dartmouth.  I’ll be heading back on a Wednesday very soon, and this time I will remember to request the dry spice on.  

** Update - I made it back on February 22nd, ordered wings with the dry Cajun on, and they were incredible!
Dry Cajun!
