We went on a Saturday evening and had been told by others to expect a long wait for service but we ordered and were served very quickly! They have your standard wings but we chose some out of our comfort zone that we didn't really end up liking (which I think was just not us, not their food) but we... More

I was skeptical, any restaurant with 50 varieties makes me wonder if its quantity or quality that they strive for- but there is some creativity and even glimpses of brilliance in the flavor combinations- I ordered the peanut butter and jelly wings as a dare and thought it would be a joke- but there is a reason why peanut butter...

I love wings. Any kind of flavor you can throw at me I'll try it. I enjoy Wingbowls, Wingfests and Wings every sunday during football season. These wings were amazing. Crispy, and sauced perfectly. I had the Cucumber Wasabi and my husband had Honey Sriracha. We had fried pickles as an app (they were bread and butter pickles still not... More

I have never had a bad or even avarage meal here! Wings are the best in a 50 mile radius and the buegers, wraps & more are all great! This is the quintessential hole in the wall. Absolutelya must eat!

For a Monday afternoon, this place was packed for dinner. Everyone there to try a new flavor of wings or something off their delicious menu. Fast service, decent beer selection, good crowd. Will be back!

This is a surprising gem hidden in Derby. Looks can be deceiving on the outside, but this place is a small bar with limited seating. Great service - the waitresses check on you constantly. There are so many wings to choose from and since going here I will never gets wings elsewhere. I am yet to try a burger or... More

Best selection of wings. I love the Parmesan,garlic butter bacon wings. Small place so go early and don't be intimidated by the motorcycles out front, food is really good. Staff is friendly and helpful. Burgers and sandwiches are just as good as the wings which is their specialty.

I have wanted to try the wings for a long time. I finally made it there today. The wings are as good as I had heard they were. Delicious and great service as well. Don't be put off if you see a few motorcycles out front, it is a nice place with great food.
