“Consistently Good Wings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

I have been going to this place for about 10 years. After having not visited for some time, I was hopeful that the BWF had remained as good as I remembered. I was not disappointed! Their chicken menu remains the best of its type I have ever seen, the servers are prompt, polite and helpful, and their beer selections are excellent and always evolving. It is all too common for wings et al. to be cooked to death at many restaurants. The BWF never makes this mistake. The chicken is always tender and juicy. While not fancy, this remains a great place to go for a weekend lunch with friends, family or even alone. Do be careful about the Flatliners--they will melt your face!

“Best REAL Buffalo Wings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

If you're in the DC area, this small chain of restaurants has the best Buffalo wings outside of Buffalo.
This Sterling location is the original location and is set in a small strip mall that is kind of hard to get to since the streets around it have been made into highways and a large over-pass bridge, but once you get to the restaurant it is well worth it. There are usually drink and food specials each evening, to include an "all-you-can-eat" wing night. The wings range in flavor anywhere from mild, to traditional hot Buffalo sauce, to the the "flat liner." They also have other flavors such as spicy ranch and general Tso's. I have never been dissatisfied. The menu also has an extensive sandwich and appetizer list for anyone who doesn't want wings as a full meal. This place also has a full bar and many TV's for watching games. Great for families, happy hours, or just coming to enjoy a meal.
I love this place, and being from Buffalo, NY myself, I can attest to the authenticity of their wings and Buffalo wing sauce.

“Best Wings in DC Area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2009

Always have a great time here. Not too pricey and the wings are the best you can find around here. Pizza is also awesome. Nice hole in the wall type feeling. Highly recommend.

“All you can eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2009

Thursday is all you can eat wings (drink included). I love the 911 wings. The spicy garlic butter is also very tasty. This place is in my top three places for best wings that I have ever had.
