Did you know that the average American eats 90 wings a year?
My buddies and I probably knock that out on a Super Bowl Sunday. When we head out for drinks, have gatherings, looking for something to eat after a round of golf, wings are usually to be found.
This past weekend, some friends and I stopped by a wing restaurant on the west side of town and made sure to take pics and collect our thoughts for this latest review. It’s national chain first started in Garland, TX which made its way to Wichita; it’s Wingstop.
At Wingstop, the menu consists primarily of wings, bone-in and boneless. They have 11 difference flavors to choose from. There are also a plethora of sides to choose from.
On Monday and Tuesday, the big special is 60 cent boneless wings.
During our visit, stuck with just wings and fries. We ordered many different flavors from Original Hot to Louisiana Rub to Mango Habanero to Teriyaki to Cajun to Lemon Pepper.
At some places, you’ll find that their wings are drenched in sauce. That could be a positive or negative depending on how you like your wings. For us, that was a positive. Unfortunately that was the only positive of our wings.
While there was a decent amount of meat on the bones, the flavors just didn’t connect with our taste buds. Maybe it was because the flavors didn’t really soak in well with the wings or maybe it was because the flavors simply weren’t good. We also had ordered seasoned fries and there wasn’t much to them; just your standard fries.
Everyone felt that the wings were average at best. Many of the popular chain competitors like Buffalo Wild Wings would have been better options.
On top of that, the wait time was a good 15+ minutes to get our wings. We found that to be longer than it should have given that nobody else had orders in place before us.
While we all love wings, this is not a place we would be returning to.
