The wings here were pretty good, but I liked Duffs wings better. The decor here, was much nicer than Duffs. But when you’re going to eat the good quality of food is more important than decor. All in all they had pretty good wings though.

Went for dinner with family. Worst chicken wings ever. Don’t buy the lemon pepper! Coleslaw was tasteless. Daughters chicken tenders were so greasy you could squeeze out the grease. Won’t go back, ever!

I wish. I can tell you that they marinate the chicken in a milky/buttery mixture. The original wing recipe is the mild fyi.
