Pinty's Authentic Pub and Grill ~ Review

I had the pleasure to try a few selection of Pinty's Authentic Pub and Grill food and they were a huge hit at home.  It felt like myself and my family were eating at a bar with great food and company.  All that was missing were frothy pints for the adults and OJ for the kids.

We tried:
Pinty's Bold BBQ - Boneless Chicken Breast (comes with Bold BBQ and Creamy Dill sauce) -810g
Pinty's Honey & Roasted Garlic - Premium Chicken Wings (comes with honey & roasted garlic and hot sauce) -890g
Pinty's Plum Prunes - hand cut, jumbo tenders (comes with honey mustard and plum sauce) -810g



I was advised the best selection is available at Walmart for $13.00.

It was a such as success that my husband wanted to write the review for the tenders and boneless chicken breast.
This is what he has to say:

The chicken nuggets were essentially bite-sized versions of the full size chicken breast- and that definitely isn't a bad thing. In both cases, the meat was high quality white chicken meat, and the light breaded coating wasn't too greasy or heavy. Based on the nutritional information on the box, both the nuggets and the tenders are high quality chicken breast meat, and while the breading isn't exactly nutritious, these morsels definitely lean heavily on the side of "good for you". The nuggets make a great guilt-free snack for kids and husbands alike, while the tenders would be a hearty, healthy part of any vegetable plate, or even cut up over a mixed green salad. 

The creamy dill sauce instantly takes you to a crowded, lively pub, as you envision yourself and close friends scarfing down tasty bar fare like deep-fried pickles or onion rings (thankfully, the chicken items you are dipping into the dill sauce are far more nutritious). It is smooth, not too heavy, and has just enough dill "bite", ultimately doing a great job of accessorizing the chicken flavour. 

The bold barbeque sauce was definitely that, with strong smokey undertones and a sharp, fresh off the BBQ taste. Thankfully, the sauce wasn't TOO strong, allowing the full flavour of the chicken tenders and nuggets to still be experienced and enjoyed. I would have liked to have seen a bit more "stink" to the bold bbq sauce - some heat or fire to give it zing. However, it is a great flavour for the backyard/picnic BBQ connoisseur in all of us. 

The plum sauce and honey mustard sauce both lived up to their names admirably, and tasted great. That is about all I can say, since there was nothing, either good or bad, that really stood out with these sauces. That being said, if you prefer the staple sauce experience of tangy honey mustard, or silky smooth and sweet plum, you can't go wrong with either of these.

I couldn't share the chicken wings.  They are one of my favourite things to eat.  They were so good that I ended up burning my mouth.  The honey garlic was made to my perfection.  The wings are a great size, unlike some places that serve tiny ones that are almost non existence.  It was not greasy and the skin was perfect.  The meat just fell off the bone and I think it was made just for me.  Pinty's know how I like my wings.

Pinty's was a success in my household.  I was stunned how much we all enjoyed them.  I could see myself purchasing them often throughout the year.

Planning to pick up some dinner or going to be entertaining a group of friends, don't forget to purchase a few boxes of Pinty's.  I will promises you there will be none left over.  The plates might also be licked clean.
Pinty's are available at your local Metro, Sobey's, Walmart, and Save on Foods to name a few.  Check here for the closest location to you.

  1. I've tried Pinty's wings before, and I agree that they were quite tasty! Not something I would purchase regularly though, because they aren't too healthy.

  12. I'm not a fan of wings, I much prefer a piece of breast. My kids (now all adults) love them though. Thanks for a great review, I'll keep Pinty's in mind for future use. :-)
