I have never heard of Jenny's before, but I soon found out I have really been missing out.  Jenny's is a local neighborhood pub on Lady Hammond Road. It doesn't particularly stand out when you are driving by but trust me it is worth checking out.  Jenny's offers 3 of my favorite qualities of any restaurant great wings, cheap beer, and the regular menu has the best prices I have seen in a long time.  A winning combination if I have ever seen one!

I was pretty surprised to see they have wing specials three nights a week!  Wings are $5.50/pound from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM on Wednesday and Sunday and from 4:00 PM – 10:00 PM on Thursday.  Any other time you’re looking at $8.95/pound which is still a great price, especially for these wings.  I couldn’t help but notice the banner on the inside advertising a 56 oz pitcher of Canadian for only $12!  One thing to keep in mind is they only accept credit cards and cash, no debit, and a beverage purchase is required with any food item. 

Breading: 5/5 – The wings were well coated with a crispy (not too crispy) golden breading.  A dry spice addition would have been a nice compliment to them.
Some nice looking wings 

Overall quality: 5/5 – Cooked perfectly, had an excellent flavour, contained no dark meat and weren’t even greasy.  These wings were delicious. 

Sauce selection: 2/5 – Sauces included Honey Garlic, Suicide and Dave’s Mild, Medium or Hot.  I went with the hot on the side.

Service: 4/5 – Drinks were offered very fast however it took a bit of time before we placed the food order.  Once the order was taken the food arrived in a timely fashion.  We didn’t require a drink refill since a pitcher of beer was ordered with the wings. 

Size: 5/5 – The wings were bigger than average and even the flatties contained a decent amount of meat to them.

Jenny’s has been a staple in the North End for years, it is a place that locals will go and staff will probably remember their names.  It is nice to see a pub like this offering such great wings with a cheap pour to make it even better.  I am looking forward to returning, Jenny’s has now been added to my favorites list.

  3. My favorite place to go for wings. Next time try a mix of honey garlic and Dave's (mild, medium, or hot) sauces, you won't be disappointed. They also now accept debit and have recently put up a huge big screen TV.
