Invited to Brad and Amanda's, or Bramanda's this weekend to their new place in Peterborough, on the Friday night we decided to try out the local cuisine. After going to one very nice place and facing a 40 minute wait, we ventured to a pub Bramanda have been to frequently lately, RILEY's Olde Towne Tavern.

Quite large inside, with lots of pool tables and a very friendly wait staff, Rileys seemed like a great local pub in the down town core. I wasn't sure if I was going to try the wings as Brad had suggested, as I had wings Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. But once I looked at the menu, I knew what I was getting.

SIZE of WINGS: large
HEAT: hot was a decent heat, 6/10, suicide was good, but not killer (except for Brad) 8/10
WET NAP FACTOR: 4/5, wings were soaked well in sauce
PRICE: didn't write it down(I'm bad), but about $13 for 2 pounds (about 18 wings)
I will get an update from Brad about the prices
SAUCE CHOICE: mild/medium/hot/suicide/ (more, Brad will inform!)
SIDES: none
WETNAP: 2 with napkins!
DEEP FRIED, GRILLED, BATTERED: deep fried and tossed in sauce
WING NIGHT: none advertised
OTHER: n/a
Overall, good wings, good flavour, and a bit of bite to boot. The wings were meaty, with a slight but crunchy skin, and lots of sauce, which I love. The suicide had a decent bite to them, but Brad had some difficulty breathing for a while. They also does great lattice fries as well. Overall, Riley's Olde Town Tavern wings come recommended and with the excellent service, its definitely a place to check out the next time your in Peterborough.
