Wings are delicious...good kids meal...nice salad...good service! Tasty eats for sure! The only...I mean only..thing I wasn't crazy about was paper plates and plastic silverware. Everything else was great

Being in the same parking lot with a national chain that sells the same product can be difficult. These are real wings not from baby chickens.The sauce selection is the best and service always friendly.

Stop going to Buffalo Wild Wings! Their wings are tiny and their service is horrible! Wings Etc. is best - their wings are much bigger. And taste much better, and they have a great atmosphere as well.

Myneighbor and I decided to drop in for lunch recently. He ordered a burger and I took advantage of their 49 cent shrimp special. My neighbor liked his burger as he said it was quite tasty. My shrimp we fried to a nice golden brown and were of average size. They were tasty but not what I would consider top... More

We had a take out order of 20 boneless wings and a grilled chicken wrap. Neither were that great - not bad, just not great. The mac n cheese side wasn't great, either.

We go to Wings etc. either for lunch (great lunch deals before 2) or for evening fare at least once a month. The choices of sauces for the wings is varied and numerous, and you choose the amount of wings. There's a good appetizer selection--Wings has added new appetizers (pretzels etc.) which are tasty and generous. I've even ventured away... More

I visit on a Monday at 11:30AM, specifically to try the wings. the wings were good - with a wide selection of sauce flavors and 'temperatures.' They have a full bar (numerous flat screen TVs) as well as tables. They offer take out.
