Best wings in Dartmouth ...
As per a recommendation from @LousyRock on Twitter, we went for wings at Jacob’s Lounge in Dartmouth last Thursday evening. I was concerned when we walked in and the place was empty, to me that’s not usually a good sign, I’m used to spots being pretty busy on wing nights, so I was already a bit skeptical as to how these wings were going to be, but I was soon proven wrong.
For their wing special, they had 24 wings and a pitcher of beer (not sure how many ounces) on for $20, but if you didn’t want the beer, a dozen wings would be $8.50. I really enjoy beer with my wings, so I was ok with it, but a lot of people with us don’t drink beer, I’d like to see a cheap wing option with a beverage purchase, like most other places do.
The sauce selection is the most basic I’ve ever seen, you have two choices – homemade spicy or honey and garlic (and no option of a dry spice), so I went with the spicy. The wings arrived and looked delicious! They were breaded, nice and crispy, not overcooked, the chicken inside was nice and tender and the homemade spicy sauce had a great flavor to it, these were the best wings I’ve had on the Dartmouth side so far, 4.25 out of 5!
I’d also like to say that the service here was excellent, they were very friendly, efficient and attentive. I will be back to Jacob’s Lounge sometime for sure. And when I do return, it would be nice to see a fairly standard wing special and a few more sauces to choose from. If people are looking for some awesome wings in Dartmouth, this is the place to go.
