We went on New Year's Day. The restaurant was busy but the wait staff was attentive, friendly, and helpful. Good selection of local craft beers. We took the suggestion to try anything with the restaurant-made buffalo sauce and had wraps, nachos, and chicken sandwiches. All very good. A fun place-give it a try.

Tables are tight and the place is busy but the service was terrific and the portions way too big. Two of us couldn't finish the pulled pork nachos and the burgers are huge and great. We would go back in a flash

We met friends here for dinner one night.. It was a decent menu with plenty of variety and the meals were prepared well and were tasty.

Great place whether you want drinks and apps or dinner. The nachos are the best around. Wings and boneless wings go without saying....

There are a few Archie Moores in CT, New Haven has the original. This one is just as good as the original (so if Wallingford is more convenient to you and you are familiar with the New Haven one, you will not be disappointed). My kids love their buffalo wings, we have ordered trays of them for different occasions and... More

There's always a crowd at this place, which I don't get! Seeing the crowd is what has made me give them 3 chances but I've been disappointed each time. I've had their burger & steak sandwich ( can't even remember what the 3rd thing was!) & despite specifying medium rare & emphasizing I like pink center the meat was very... More

The drinks are delicious and not overpriced. The pulled pork nachos are the best thing on the menu. They also get rave reviews on the chicken wings. It's a small cramped place but the food is delicious and it is well worth it if you can find some place to park. There's parking available behind Archie Moore's as well.

Bar tender is non attentive. Have to practically beg them to take your order. Day service is MUCH better.

It's your typical burger and beer place, not great but just average. The appetizers are good and the drinks fine. It tends to be a younger crowd and a bit noisy, but the wings are definitely their specialty.
