They've been doing it for more years than I have hands and toes. It has to be how they cookem, because I've been eating there since I've been 10yrs old and now I'm let's just say I'm older:) and nothings changed. The thick and chunky blue cheese that comes out cold with the hot wings, no one else duplicates it.

It is where I take my teenagers for dinner as they love it. The food is greasy -- Chicken Wings, cheese sticks, chicken fries... get the picture? The staff is very nice and helpful! They make a great drink.

Better than bar food bar & grill, with an extensive menu. They have the best wings! Serving hours extended, which is a plus, being located next to a local hospital.

The wings here are very good but significantly higher in price than most restaurants. You do get a pile of wings, but the wings are not quite as meaty as some other restaurants. Burgers are ok but nothing special. You need to go to the bar to order and then your food is brought to the table and credit cards... More

The food here is nothing to write home about. On a recent trip there we ordered their "famous wings". They were dripping with grease, very bland and over priced. However the celery sticks and blue cheese was quite tasty, but that's not what why we went there. AND heads up---they only take cash. This would be a good place to... More

Disappointed the wings went up in price so much.....but they are very good. Used to be a cheap place to pig out on wings and burgers, but now it gets quite pricy. Another "negative vote" for them not taking cards....cash only. They finally put signs on the door, must be too many people got surprised after they went to pay... More

Chicken Wings and cold beer...who can beat that. Wings are always hot, crispy and just the right amount of heat (I order medium). Cash only but an ATM is available. Pretty darned good for a small, local bar!

We went here and like other reviewers have said not sure how/why it is rated highly unless something fishy is up with the reviews. We got nothing but dirty looks from the bartenders, sat at a table in the bar and several employees walked by us and again just nasty look. We didn't realize you had to order at the... More

They have the meatest & BEST buffalo chicken wings!! Cash only, menu is a typical bar food, but they do have salads. Order at the bar & they bring you your food. If you like buffalo wings, this is the place to go!!
