  1. Haven't been to either of those, but went to one in Charlotte before it clsoed and one in Greensboro. The big draw for them is the NTN trivia game.
    The food is okay for standard bar fare. If you are looking for good wings, East Coat wings in Winston Salem has the best variety..the teri-ginger-garlic are better than any I have had.

      actually to my taste buds the Buffalo Wild wings is better than east coast. Went to the Buffalo by Hanes mall and the jerk wings were prety good. not sure if either are worth driving too far for though

    2. I think the best wings to be had in the Triangle are at Bull City Wings. It's a carry out place with a drive thru, but them wings are damn good!

      1. The answer you're looking for is NO!!!

        It's not worth the drive.
        We went to one in Indiana and I couldn't have been more disappointed. Wings the size of my thumb. Buffalo wings that really didn't taste like Buffalo wings. The other flavours we ordered were very "Pre made" tasting. Like they used jarred thai sauce or something.

        1. you hit the nail on the head, davwud. bw3's is terrible. i'm sure the stock is doing well because it is a football atmosphere, so this is their time of year. the food is overpriced and low quality. when cooked perfectly, some of their stuff tastes good, but it's still a ripoff.

          i don't really like bull city wings, though, either. it is better than bw3's, but it's missing something. i ate them twice, and only because i met the owner and he was trying to give me free wings. i felt guilty because he said people from ny came down and said his wings are better than wings from buffalo. they must not have tastebuds. and i would also not support that business because it's closed on football sunday... the only day i do want wings, but i guess i'm just a capitalist yankee agnost.

          it's tough to find a good wing in durham. i have yet to try devine's, which should have a good wing, but charlie's on ninth street has a good wing... it's just not worth footing a $10 bill for 12 wings, but they are worth $3 a dozen on monday nites. but their wings still aren't as good as the down under pub on main st. i hate to admit that i've eaten anything from here, but i have, and they have the best wing in town. i can say this without even trying devines' wings, because the down under pub has delicious wings(despite the 91 health rating).

            Devine's wings are pretty dang good. Their sauce is much more authentic and flavorful than Charlie's wings. My advice: Charlie's for burgers (with either the shostring fries or he homemade chips-- both are excellent), and Devine's for wings. Satisfaction's wings are good too.

          2. Are they worth the drive? Depends on whether you're looking for good wings (no) or a good gameday atmosphere (yes).
