Pub Grub at Frosty John's
One of my Dad's places in Bowmanville is Frosty John's. I'd heard about it, but hadn't had the chance to visit.
It's a large venue with lots of booths, tables and TVs. Many of the booths had their own TVs. You don't see that very often! There's even a patio in the summer and seating at the bar. I definitely didn't expect that from a restaurant located in a plaza.
We were starving. It didn't take long for me to pick the Tex-Mex Burger with onion rings and my Dad went with the Chicken Pot Pie with coleslaw. He knew I'd be getting a pile of onion rings he could conveniently 'help' me out with and I definitely needed it. They were hot and crisp. Perfect! The burger was messy and awesome. This was not a frozen burger. I have a weakness for guacamole and it was good. A little kick went well with the salsa and crushed tortilla chips. It was one good burger. My plate was covered in rogue toppings by the time I was done. My Dad's pot pie didn't last long. It had large chunks of chicken and veggies under a golden brown crust. The coleslaw was creamy and tangy, just the way coleslaw should be.
The beer menu was not special. There were the usual suspects, nothing local, no craft beers. Meh. With such a great menu, I hoped for a complimentary beer menu. Boooooo!
The service was great. She came by just when we needed her. Didn't stop by us too much or too little, which I like. Each time she had perfect timing to see how we were doing; when I had a mouth full of food. Story of my life!
I'd love to try some of the other items on the menu. I've seen some good reviews and I'd love to come back and try some other dishes. I hear the wings are amazing!
