Ate there yesterday for mid-afternoon lunch/dinner. Wait staff recommended the "Carolina Wings" that they are known for. Awful !!!

The service was excellent. Everyone with me enjoyed their food...burgers, salads, sandwiches. The ketchup bottle had a Trivial Pursuit QR code on it so we had fun with that. My boys also had fun playing foosball ($1) in the game area.

Their wings are large in size and very good. Beer is cold and lots of friendly faces. They do have an outside bar but its to hot outside for me.

Best hot wings in a bar and grill. Where you can sit back relax, shoot pool or enjoy the games on the 50 screens. If your in the Vista you can enjoy this on the top level looking over the city

This restaurant has good food, great service and covered outdoor seating that allows dogs! It is difficult to find one that has all three things. We have eaten here 3 times while traveling and have not been disappointed.

This is a great place to grab wings and a cocktail. The servers always respond promptly and the food is always hot when it arrives at the table. I also like going here for lunch.

Have eaten here several times when visiting the area. Always good grill food and drinks. Occasional specials on food and beer are a great deal.
