Having no place to eat, I took my wings to the road and found a nearby park. I found this . . . table? No its not an illusion or photoshoped . . . its half a picnic table. It was great to me, but it was a little weird in this park. This is something that would be really useful in busy urban parks for business people on lunch break, not solitary by a pool and a sports field. But whatever.
It came with Wings Up!'s own blue cheese dip. A lot of dip (considering the 4 pieces of veggies) with one big problem. If you look at the above picture, on the left the label says "Chunky Blue Cheese" but the photo on the right shows the blue cheese sans chunks. I had two containers of blue cheese that had zero chunks in it. That's pretty ballsy to say one thing and produce another. That's also called lying where I come from. Despite the lack of actual chunks of blue cheese, it was tasty.
The two half orders, 5 wings each, had separate boxes with their own veggies and dip. I had the option of having the wings naked or breaded, and I went with breaded. You just get a little more wing with breading, and in theory a good crunch.
These were meaty wings for sure, but pretty much a medium sized wing. On the website they call them humongous, but they really are not.
I wanted to try their hottest sauce, with their chili scale going up to four, this sauce should be smokin.
I went to town on the first one . . . there was a good spicy flavour . . . but nothing was really burning or tingling. But after a few wings, the heat began to build until I needed to take a drink. It attacked more the back of the mouth rather than the lips. The sauce was a sweet heat and was certainly a unique sauce.
When I looked at these wings I was scared. They were so thick in the yellow sauce that I was imagining a wall of mustard sting. I actually got the opposite reaction. The flavour was almost all honey with just a hint of mustard. So it wasn't offensive the way I thought it would be, but it ended up being too sweet. No edge at all. I ate most of these right away just to get back to the SB wings.
- They say "humongous" wings, they are not. They aren't small, but humongous? Come on?
- They say "chunky blue cheese" and there are no chunks. Come on!
- They say "best wings you'll ever taste". Come on!
I don't hate these wings. These are a decent wings. But the claims are just to outrageous. Would I get the from here again? If I lived nearby and was really jonesing for some wings. But I would have to really be jonesing. It felt more like an industry wing rather than wings made with love. Take out if you want, but freshly done from a restaurant or done at home will always be better than take-out. 4.5/10
