The main menu here is loaded with mediocre pub food, but the Buffalo Wings here are always awesome -- as good as any you will find anywhere. You can order them in multiples of 7 to whatever amount you like. Sometimes I come here and just order a plate of 21 for my entire meal.

We where there on a sub-zero day and I loved the fact that they had a double door foyer. It's a little thing but kept us toasty. The food and service are great! In the summer they have a secluded patio out back.

Consistently great wings, an experience that dates back decades for me in their original New Haven location. The Fairfield location is also pretty good as well as this Derby location. Wings are nicely seasoned and perfectly cooked, but generally not as spicy as those made in Buffalo, but still very good. The restaurant is really more like a Cheers bar,... More

Most people seem to love this place. Nice bar aet up but the wings are just not that great. Super greasy. You get the plate and see the puddle of oil on the plate. The wings are ok but I've had much better.

Archie's is a good local restaurant and I can rave about their wings forever. There is a nice look to the place and it is very clean, but the food is just average, nothing special. The reason I give 4 stars is because of the wings.

We were only there to meet friends and have a drink and appetizers. The nachos were outstanding as well as the wings. The patio area in the early evening makes for a nice place to hang out.
