I've seen a bunch of commercials for this place...apparantly they have like 500 stores in the US and have served like 800,000,000 wings?


looked on their location finder....saw that they actually had a location less than 5 miles from me....whoa....

anyone been to this place?

    It's really good, but the fries kinda suck! I much prefer Wing Zone which has a much larger (if that's possible) selection of wings! Try the garlic-parmesan or the hot honey-teriyaki. Hmmm, wings.

      I don't really even like chicken wings all that much, but was briefly obsessed with their lemon pepper wings.

        I love their wings! I prefer the garlic parmesan wings (boneless or bone-in). My BF and I go there about once a month. Their hot wings aren't really that spicy, in my opinion, but they are still pretty good!

          The atomic wings are really spicy. I happen to like the fries. Fresh cut, not crispy though.

            wings aren't bad. i usually get the hottest ones, and they rank about a high-medium on my personal scale (which means most people would wonder why their faces aren't melting).

            fries are ok when fresh, but have a weird, greasy, chemical taste when they cool. actually, the taste is always there, it just becomes more pronounced as they cool.

            their "blue cheese" dressing is ranch that sat near a conatiner of blue cheese in the cooler; nasty and awful stuff.

            of the few wing places available to me, wingstop is at the bottom of the list. that said, if i need a wing fix, and for whatever reason can't get them from a preferred place, wingstop does satisfy the craving.

              I went in thinking that it was going to be an hockey store and was taken aback that it was a chicken wing place. The Garlic Parmasan is also my favourite, with the Original Hot, Lemon Pepper, Hickory Smoked BBQ & Hawaiian BBQ at just good.

              The first weekend I noticed them, I had them every wknd for 2-3 weeks. I guess I'm over it now.

                I believe every establishment is worth trying once. I liked the variety of sauces. The wings aren't as flavorful by themselves as they ought to be. I didnt think the number of wings you got wasn't enough for what you pay for either. Not worth a return trip, imo.

                  I love the Lemon Pepper wings with ranch, i also love the traditional flavor. Try the baked beans, they are cooked in beer. I love em'!

                    One more thing: I wish they did more combos for a smaller number of wings! We don't all need 100 wing buckets! I would like to mix n match more flavors but can only get a maximum of two wing selections without buying tons of wings!
