The wings are very good. The dry rub is unique with lots of flavor. The sides we tried were average- French fries were soggy, mac-cheese bites were Ok but the Jalepeno poppers were good. I would try the chicken again for sure.

This is a great local joint. It will bring your mouth joy if you like this style of food. We used Doordash to bring us some wings. Oh my. They were crisp, juicy and on point. I recommend the sweet and sour sauce. We ate...red beans and rice. Very flavorful and filling. We also had HoJo potatoes. Yum! I will be dreaming of these wings until I get more! Shout out to Art Song! RIP.More

Great wings. My favorite of all time! If I had the money I would build a chain of Art Songs wing restaurants.

Love the ribs and the chicken is to die for. I Would Have to Say the Chicken Looked Very Small and Solely relide on the fancy seasoning. I would definitely be trying them again to see anything different. Sides are okay also.

I stopped in and picked up a couple rib tip dinners($13 each) here the other night as I had a craving for BBQ. I read the reviews, so felt like i needed to get some wings as well. The portions are large, two people could...probably split one rib tip dinner. While the portions are large, they are not the "Fall of the bone" type ribs I love, these where tasty pork ribs in a mild sauce that required plenty of gnawing to clean the bones. I had mine with Ho Jos and Mac N Cheese. Ho Jos are like an extra thick potato chip fries and you get a large potato's worth. They were alright, a couple had kind of a fishy taste as I'm guessing they are fried with the fish, then covered in seasoning. To be fair, fried potato's are never perfect when taken home to eat. I ordered the 3 wings($8) with some buffalo sauce to give them a try. They are large wings, and based on the price, they are proud of them... i thought they were OK... I love that this place is an institution that has been here a long time but may prefer Big Daddy's a little better.More

This place looks pretty nondescript, but the chicken wings are out of sight! Different... they taste & smell like they put garam masala in their spice mix. Very nice touch.

Art Songs chicken wings! Need I say more? Best wings in the metro! Go on a Tuesday or Thursday when you can get a "bucket of 24" for a special price. They also use the seasoning on their rice. I haven't tried anything else on...their menu. There are about a dozen tables inside. I call an order in for 24 wings and they're usually ready in 15 minutes. Sometimes I can't even make it home without nibbling on a wing or two.More
