“Wings Wings Wings”
Review of Arooga's

Cuisines: American

Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night
Description: There’s never been a place quite like Arooga’s before. How do we know? Spies. That, and because we’re not just some average, run-of-the-mill, sports bar. Nope. We’re a slightly above average grille house and sports bar. That’s right. Our housemade food is prepared by chefs instead of factory workers — it’s better. The housemade bread, wings sauces, salad dressings, the housemade soups. All better. The beer is colder. The TVs, TV-er. You can see every game from every seat. And we mean every game, because we have every sports package available all 365 days of the year on 100's of flat screen tv's between all of our locations. We've got free wi-fi, Golden Tee, Buzztime trivia, and NTN Texas Hold 'em. We've got over 80 menu items under $8.99. And several other items priced over $8.99 for the rich folks. So if you're looking for great food prepared and served by above-average people that prepare and serve great food, you'll find it at Arooga's. If you're looking for fun, you'll find that, too. If you're looking for your boyfriend and/or girlfriend, we haven't seen him and/or her. So there you go, the proof's in the pudding here at Arooga's.

“Wings Wings Wings”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I realize Arooga's has other food, but the reason to go here is the wings. Not because they are bigger than anyone elses or less expensive, but because the offer more flavors than most and they havea twice baked option, for those that like crispier wings.

“"Lunch Buffet that will bring you back with your friends"”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Stopped by for the lunch buffet with my wife at noontime on Wednesday, December 19th.
We just missed the first wave of the lunchtime crowd and the one waitress herded everybody into the same big room, eliminating our preference of a booth. We were lead to a table with no silverware (and were not supplied with any until we asked). The buffet bar was pretty "used up".
We were getting off to a rough start here. We gleaned what we could from the buffet table. My wife and I enjoyed everything, then the troops kicked in! Wow- the cooks rolled out and resupplied everything, and the good got better. The cole slaw was exceptional, as was the soup. The General Tso’s Chicken was notable, better than most Chinese restaurants! It was spicy and interesting. This was my third visit to this chain, and the wings here were the best I have had at Arooga's. The building was very clean, well lit, and surprisingly quite for the crowd present. We used a buy one get one free lunch buffet coupon that we got off of a Giant Food receipt. What a bargain.

“Food is Good.. Atmosphere is loud”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Arooga's had great food and a great place to go for a high-spirited meal. Don't go here to have a serious conversation or a quiet experience!

“Pretty Good Chicken”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I ate at Arooga's last month. I ordered the chicken strips which were more like nuggets. That left me a little disappointed. The chicken was great as well as the sauce. I loved the wide selection of sauces available for the chicken varieties they offer.
