All this nature on a bright, sunny but not hot day got me hungry. So I thought I would check out a relatively new pub and eatery in the town, BoJangles.
Cornwall had a BoJangles before, 20 years ago. In the same building. And that building has been around since 1907! The old BoJangles apparently had a Mardi Gras theme. But this bar and grill is definitely sports bar themed. While the outside was quite understated (just a few small hanging signs - one big banner on the side of the building) the inside was another story.
Inside was a cornucopia of sports stuff. Pennants, jerseys, signed pictures etc etc etc. Oh and lots of flat screens with 'the game' on. What game? I have no idea. I don't even remember the sport. What I liked about the place was the character of the classic building. The metal molded ceilings, the old wooden floors. The inside is very spacious, with lots of seating.
I sat in the front window near the bar. Everyone else that came into eat sat on the other half of the eatery. Actually I was one of, if not the first patrons of the day. My waiter Jaime was over quick taking my drink order and answering my wing questions.
The wings come in an order of 12 with a good mix of wingette's and drummette's. The wings are dusted in flour then deep fried. They also came with a single stick of celery, a single stick of carrot, and no dip; a little strange or a very minimalist garnish.
Their wing night is uniquely priced on Thursdays at $0.40 a wing if you order 99 or less, or $0.35 if you order 100 or more. That's $35 for 100 wings. But these are not badly sized wings.
The wings were large. You could see beyond the light dusting that these were big, meaty wings. I have to say that some, not all, but some of the wing meat was tough. The first one I bit into was tough (and I thought these were not going to be good) but most turned out just right thankfully.
This was a good, traditional Buffalo sauce. Nothing fancy. There's a possibility it was a bottled sauce, but it tasted like an authentic cayenne pepper sauce with vinegar and butter.
My only complaint with this was there was no real kick. It was pretty mild in my books. Yummy, but no bite.
FINAL SCORE: I was quite happy with my wings. As I said, big, crispy, saucy. We were just missing the heat. BoJangles seems to take some pride in their wings and I for one appreciate it. Good work at just doing a well done wing. 7.5/10
