I absolutely love chicken wings. In fact, they might be my favorite food. Yes, it’s not the healthiest meal out there but it is one of the most delicious. Over the past couple of years, I have made it a goal to try as many chicken wings as I could. I have visited so many restaurants, compared prices, and of course, ate their wings!
It wasn’t until last year that I found my favorite place to get chicken wings: Wing Stop.
For the longest time, I was a die-hard fan of Buffalo Wild Wings. I think most of that has to do with the fact that they had 60cent wings on Tuesdays/Thursdays but unfortunately, they don’t do that anymore 😦
Now, Buffalo Wild Wings has a BOGO deal for snack sizes. That’s not as good of deal so I haven’t been in a while. Other than that, BWW is kinda pricey for standard prices. Additionally, the atmosphere is very “bar-like” and I find myself shouting at the person sitting across from me because it is so loud in the building.
Another chicken wing restaurant that I have tried is Wing Dome. I first heard about Wing Dome because Timothy DeLaGhetto went on a twitter rant about how Wing Dome has the best wings. So of course I had to try it!
I liked Wing Dome better than Buffalo Wild Wings, but my boyfriend ordered spicy wings and I don’t have the best tolerance for spicy foods. Let’s just say I went through three glasses of water and I couldn’t feel my lips by the end of the meal.
Regardless of that, I thought that the sauce had nice and rich flavor and the chicken was cooked well. The only issues that I had with Wing Dome was that there were not many flavors to choose from (majority of the options were variation in spiciness). Also, it was a bit pricey for the amount of wings that we ordered. I would still go back, though.
Now, onto why you clicked this post in the first place – my Wing Stop review! I flippin’ love Wing Stop.
First, the food: When I go to Wing Stop, I order the traditional wings. Nothing against boneless wings, but they’re basically just chicken nuggets. Anyways, I usually get the 15 wing combo which comes with 2 flavors, 2 dipping sauces, large fries or veggies, and 2 fountain drinks. Great deal! My go-to flavors are lemon pepper and cajun. Soooo good! The skin on the chicken isn’t too soft, and has some crisp to it. The chicken inside is always cooked well and isn’t dry. The flavors themselves are extremely rich! The reason I prefer Wing Stop is because their flavor profile, in my opinion, is 10X better than other places that I have tried! Also, their fries aren’t too salty which helps when you are eating wings.
Next, the price: The 15 piece combo is around $22.00. Not a bad deal considering all the food that you get. My boyfriend and I split the food and we still had leftovers! That’s about $11.00 per person which is an average price for Buffalo Wild Wings on their discounted days. Not only do you get tastier wings, you save some $$!
Last, the atmosphere: Wing Stop has a great atmosphere. They don’t have TV’s everywhere and it isn’t “bar-like” like BWW. They just have standard tables where families can sit and enjoy their wings and company! Personally, I like this set-up better because it feels like the meal is more personal.
The last time I ate at Wing Stop was this past Monday. Again, I was so happy with my meal! I took some photos to remember my chicken wings (lol) so I am sharing them with you today 🙂
