“Went for the famous sandwich, but wings were the best we ever had”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This place was featured on Adam Richman's "best sandwich in America" show so we rolled up for their feature "4 courser" sandwich, was excellent but not quite as good as Zunzi's or the place in Philly that won (we have been to four of the featured places on the show), but anyway the sandwich was worth the trip for sure. But then we tasted the wings (we went boneless) and were blown away as was not expecting to have the best wings we have ever had anywhere, hands down -- they age the buffalo wing sauce in casks for eight weeks!!! Eight weeks. These are destination wings.

“Really - Best Wings in Town”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I have had Wings in many cities, Fifty Fifty is by far the best. Had the Buffalo and Garlic Spiced ones - Wow.
Fun to get a bucket and people watch while winging it.

“BIG boneless wings”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Their boneless wings are seriously all white meat and huge!! I found their buffalo sauce to be on the tangy side (not a fan). Their cornbread was different (sugary sweet but not in a way I enjoyed). However, my husband loved all of their food. The food was hot and well prepared. The service was quick and good. This place was easy to get to. The best part (for me) was the hot towels and lemon at the end to wipe up your hands and face. :)

“Good sports bar”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Went here in a Wednesday night and it was fairly busy with a good atmosphere. Served by a great waitress who was chatty and told us about the local area which was nice of her.

We had some wings which were really good and i ordered a beer that came in a souvenir cup, the waitress kindly got my GF a cup too for free.

Would return!
