The best wings anywhere happen to be in Wallingford at a good old fashioned American bar

Get a seat at the bar of this welcoming, friendly place and enjoy the best Buffalo wings you've ever had. Tom the bartender (and that other guy too...Mikey?) is always entertaining and attentive. This place is fun alone or with your girlfriend. In a world of overpriced cocktail trendiness it's nice... read more

Nothing unique here. A typical dark wood bar with a sports feel. Wings were good, service was good a decent spot for a drink and quick bite of bar food.

Don't go to Archie Moores for a quiet, intimate meal. Go for the good food -- the wings in particular -- and brace yourself for the deafening noise. The restaurant seating is arranged around the central bar and the bar patrons tend to be extremely loud. Maybe it is just the acoustics of the room, but you'll often find it... More

There's a reason why they sell their wings sauce. It's just that good. Tom the bartender is also a humorous addition to the food.

Rude service once and cold grilled cheese another time. I really wouldn't recommend this place for dinner since the bar can be overwhelming loud. They do have nice outdoor seating though. I would choose any other place around that area for a nice meal first.

Food was good. A bit noisy and crowded but overall not bad. Had a burger and it was okay. Drink was average.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the desk clerk at the hotel we were staying at , glad we took his advice . Archie Moores was about 20 minutes away, probably closer if we knew the area , but well worth the ride. Did wish the reviews mentioned a parking lot in the rear but the four... More

Ordered a salad there last night with chicken; the chicken was not cooked. Had to send back; would not even reorder anything else. My husband had a burger which he said was okay. Certainly will not go back there!

Best wings in town. Picked them up for a party and was a big hit. Place was very busy with a young to middle age crowd.
