Have you ever heard of Johnny Macs in Henderson? Well you’ve might’ve seen their ads boasting, “The Best Pizza and Wings in the Valley” This month we decided we’d go and check it out for ourselves. For research, of course.
We got there and first impression, the atmosphere was filled with a friendly sensation with the staff and the customers there. The environment was a classic look with brick walls and pictures of the classic times. They are a sports bar and grill and they had several different options for drinks. Besides the market label of beers, Johnny Mac’s brews their own beer in the back of the restaurant, so there’s no shortage of options.
Johnny Macs also has daily specials, deals and meals that you can only get on that weekday, such as the Wednesday’s All Day and Night Special: all pizza is half-off, Dine-In only. Or what we got that day, the 2 for 1 Spaghetti and Meatballs, one of the Thursday Specials. Don’t forget to take advantage of the 20% discount for veterans. You can check out all their specials at their website; http://www.johnnymacswings.com
At Johnny Macs, instead ordering how many wings you want, you order by the pound instead. We ordered 2 pounds of Wings, Mild, (the server recommended Medium, but some of us can’t handle spice), the 2 for 1 Spaghetti and Meatballs, and a half Johnny Macs Special, half Meat-Lovers’ pizza. We got a serving of Signature Cannoli’s afterwards. Here’s what we thought:
What do you think of the Wings?
The chicken meat was juicy, but not greasy. It was a bit on the salty side, but I would order it again.
Not greasy, unlike other places.
The wings were some of the best chicken wings I’ve ever had because of how it tastes. The grease gave it nice fat flavor but not so much as to make it heavy. The meat has a very nice moist chewy texture especially when eaten with the crispy skin.
What about the pizza we ordered?
I only ate their Meat Lover’s pizza. I tried the toppings before eating the pizza and the sausage was some of the best I’ve had. The whole pizza slice came together like magic and I thought “This is hands down the best pizza I have ever eaten.”
The cheese, the sauce, and the dough made by Johnny Mac’s eaten together melts together like magic.
I liked how tender the meatballs were.
We were surprised that there was a such an exotic Italian dessert in the dessert menu in Johnny Mac’s. It’s their signature Cannoli dessert that’s dripped with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar. The cannoli itself is absolutely filled with the Italian signature sweet cheese with chocolate chips at the ends.
We will come back again to discover more great food in Johnny Macs and we hope you will too.
