“Great Wings in Statesville”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a family owned and operated establishment and there is little doubt that the local people know exactly what they are getting - delicious home made food at reasonable prices - we arrived to place an order for wings to go and were told - this is not a fast food place - and it will take about half an hour....(OK so it was a Friday night!)....we decided it just might be worthy of waiting (something I rarely do)....and the long wait (40 minutes) was, in fact, worthwhile. In the meantime - many many many customers arrived - those "in the know" were smart enough to telephone their order in - well in advance - and then arrive to pick up...some sipping on a cold beer and talking to other patrons while waiting for their number to come up - and others waited in the parking lot until they were advised by cell to drive to the pick up window! They could use quite a few more chefs and helping hands - but they certainly have great appeal and are obviously doing very well - they also have an eat in area.....but I do believe one must also wait to eat at a table - when they are this busy. The menu features BBQ chicken dinners and other options as well. Folks were ordering take out wings - 100 at a time....and business was booming. The fries were delicious as were the onion rings...and our wait was long..but the chicken wings were the star of the show....next time I would call in advance to place my order...and - there will be a next time for us for sure!
