    Thought this was a bit bland and lacked a strong flavour. Amount of chips was just enough. The thickness of the chicken was average and a little dry. Dont think I would go there again.

    Pretty solid Parma down at Puggs, the breast was quality and a nice size (although I generally prefer them fractionally thicker), cheese was nicely melted however sauce was only ok (I suspect it was your typical sauce from a jar here). The addition of ham was as usual welcomed with open arms and the chips were better than average, unfortunately their lack of abundance lost them points here. Chips were placed under the Parma however this doesn't tend to phase me as long as they retain their integrity, in this case they were still crisp and tasty. Salad was the usual stock standard and did the job in complementing the meal. Overall as Mentioned earlier a pretty solid Parma and washed down with a few cold beers whilst watching the footy capped off a great lunch! Would recommend.

    Good sized portions of parma, chips and salad makes for a great meal that tastes good as a whole and is very filling. Even the 'classier' version served for dinner and on weekends is just as delicious

    Delicious parma and at $12.50 you can't go wrong. Packed with college students and old timers great atmosphere. -1 bonus point however goes to the tall strawberry blonde bloke wearing ripped jeans and a stripey v neck t-shirt. SERIOUSLY mate its an irish pub not a friggen fashion show. p.s. you looked ridiculous.

    Puggs is an institution that is not normally known for its meals. This will soon change when word spreads. After demolishing a parma last week I was left to ask what more could I want? They delivered high quality service, great beer and a bloody fantastic parma!!!

    Packed full with some of Carlton's finest; it's certainly not what you'd call a family venue. Despite the chants from the local college youths, they serve up a pretty decent parma. The full points for quantity of chips was well deserved.
