If you are one of those people that hate eating meat off of a bone like my husband, this place will change your mind. If u are one of those people who think bone in wings are too much work and not enough meat or too messy, this place will change your mind. This is the most amazing, make u... read more

We drive over an hour to eat at Hackett's once a month. Not a wing place that comes close to their excellent favored wings. Definitely worth the drive! The Hackett's are frequently checking on their customers making sure they are enjoying their visit. Great restaurant and even better staff!

If you want to relax & enjoy some wings and some beers don't go here. Constantly have to get up and down for anything since there aren't any waiters. We were pleasantly surprised the first time we went here in summer 2014 but each time we've gone since it's gotten worse and worse. We loved the dry rub Cajun wings..... More

People rave about Hackett's wings eaten at their downtown restaurant. My only experience has been the delivery or take out served at finger food parties (Super Bowl will be a big day for them). The wings I have had in such home settings have always been small and dry. I am guessing they are fried a day (or days) ahead... More

I went to Hackett Hot Wings for lunch a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed the traditional honey wings I got. They were a delicious combination of sweet and spicy that I will have to try again sometime. The atmosphere was comfortable and lively without being obnoxiously loud. The price was reasonable for the quality of the food. I would... More

The food was fresh and tasted good but the bone-in wings were the smallest I've ever had, especially for the price. The boneless wings were large and all white meat. Hot honey sauce was good. Nice place they just need bigger wings like those found at Wing Stop!

This is one of our regular date night spots. They have a lot of house sauces and rubs for the wings (boneless or bone-in), which are all delicious. My personal favorites are the Hot & Honey sauce and the Greek rub. The fries and the corn nuggets are also very good. The service is always friendly and helpful, and you'll... More

I'd read great reviews for this place and wanted to check it out for myself while I was in the area. I was not disappointed. I had an order of the wings, 10 for $8.50 which is a very reasonable price on wings nowadays. Great flavor, and they were cooked just right. It took a little while to get my... More

Hackett Hot Wings is a Joplin staple, nay, a Midwestern staple. Personally, I'm a Caribbean Jerk Dry Rub Wing gal, but you really can't go wrong with any choice. Family owned, this place is the epitome of local. In historic downtown, parking in bank. Great historic building with exposed brick and wood floors.
