Have youn tried the wings at Bistro on Avenue, 1678 Avenue Rd ? If so, what do you say about it?

      They are likely very similar to St Louis as the owners were once partners and for a long time used the identical formula.

      After the partners split up there was talk that Bistro was going to roast as opposed to deep fry their wings. I have no idea if this is what happened but would be interested to know.

      In any event I am not terribly optimistic as both Bistro and St Louis used the smaller cheaper wings that I don't like.

        To be honest, the quality of their wings has fallen tremendously in my opinion. I would opt to go to St. Louis Bar and Grill before this fiasco. I ate there recently, and the wings were dry and even the fries were not good which is usually something they nail. I would avoid this place now.

          I had the wings at the St. Louis Ribs & Wings on Bremner. They were tiny and dry. The fries were even worse. Even the coke went flat quickly. It amazes me how they can supposedly specialize in wings and still be terrible at it. I'd rather buy a ticket to whatever's going on in the Skydome and eat wings at Quaker Steak & Lube than go to another St. Louis.
