Queen Victoria Pub
Queen Victoria Pub

Toronto, ON M1P 4R9
What is with all these pubs and naming themselves after royalty? Gotta think up something clever guys. Regardless, they all seem to be pretty similar and Queen Victoria is really no different. This small pub located in a small plaza close to Progress and Midland Ave sits rather large with a nice tiny patio to boot. The interior looks like your standard pub in Toronto but is elongated with the bar hiding out along the left side of the entrance.
We came to watch some more NBA Finals games and what better way than with half price wings. If you roll in on a Sunday, they have half price wings (with purchase of drink), which comes out to about $6 per pound. If you're not feeling wings, their menu is standard pub fare with some daily specials that change like pad thai, and other asian inspired creations by the kitchen.
Anyways, I ordered the wings and I got them a classic Buffalo Hot. The mother in law was with me so she also wanted some wings (got herself the Honey Garlic). The hot wings weren't a revelation by any means. Just your standard pub wings. They are fairly large sized wings and lightly fried. Not much sauce, which I enjoy. If you want sauce, make sure you let them know.
The honey garlic wings were weak. They weren't tossed all that well and the wings were barely covered. The honey garlic sauce was too sweet for my liking, but the wings are the same. The wings come with fries, and I love the crisp fries that these pubs have. Not those flaccid poutine fries you get most anywhere else.
Not a bad place if you're looking for some place to watch the game and you're in the area. Believe me, being that it is Scarborough/Miliken area, you won't find many bars or pubs outside of the big chains. Clientele here were surprisingly really old. I was probably the youngest one by at least 30 years... Either way, OK wing stop for TVs and drinks.
