About a month ago I had my first real introduction to Tillson Pizza (named after the street its on, which is named after the town, which in turn is named on the family that founded 'The Burg") and one word came to mind, deliciously greasy. They way pizza should be. But like many pizza places, wings are now a mainstay on the menu.

WING NIGHT: none - its a pizza joint
OTHER/SPECIAL: great spring rolls with the pizza & wings!
When I read that 15 wings came in an order, I thought for sure I was getting pigeon wings. Boy, was I wrong. These large, bordering on jumbo wings were a wonderful surprise. Not only are they big and juicy, but they are breaded, which gave for a bulkier wing.
One downside to this, was adding the sauce to these breaded wings made them a bit soggy after a while. The flavour was a nice spicy with a hint of sweet. Certainly not hot, and it won't offend any one's taste buds.
I refused to write a score for these wings - my scoring method gave Tillson Pizza an 11 out of 35, and these were NOT by any means the worst wings I've eaten since implementing the scoring. Because they are a pizza place, there are some sections where there just no points to be had. These were an excellent pizza place wing and better than some 'wing joints'. So the next time your thinking about getting pizza, look past your chain options and look to the local - it just might surprise you. Oh, and the spring rolls were an excellent addition to the pizza and wing combo - who would have thunk it?
