Dreaded Dr. Sharp's

I ended up working late again last week and was craving wings, so on my way home I decided to stop in at Dr. Sharp’s and order some.  I realized very quickly that I made a horrible decision.

Wing night at Dr. Sharp’s is on Tuesday’s – 10 wings for $5.  I was there on a Wednesday so I had to pay full price, which equates to $11.95 a pound!  Fairly expensive in my opinion but I ordered them anyway.  The menu indicates you get your choice of Roadhouse sauces which is a fairly standard selection of around six different types of basic sauces, once the wings arrived I thought the menu should be updated to include “Roadhouse sauces with Roadkill wings”, these things looked awful right from the get go. 

So, on to the review …

Breading:  n/a – No breading.  I realize there are lots of people out there who like naked wings, I’m not one of them. 
Ugh, that's all I have to say.  



Overall quality: 1/5 - These were some sad looking small wings.  Oddly enough the pic makes them look gooey and raw, but they managed to be dry and flavorless, ugh. 

Sauce: 2/5 – Regular sauce selection, more than 5 flavors but less than 10.  I don’t have the exact sauces they offered but I’ll work on that and update this once I get them. 

Size: 1/5 – Small wings, I actually chuckled out loud by mistake when they arrived, I couldn’t help it.
Not much meat on these
Service: 2/5 – The waitress was really nice, however … She came over a few minutes after the wings arrived and asked how they were.  I’m not one to complain much, but she asked how my wings were and I had to be honest.  I hesitated a few seconds and then honestly told her these were the worst wings I’ve ever had in Halifax.  So that was that. 
I received the bill and was surprised to see I was charged full price for the wings, it was pretty clear I only ate one wing.  I had to ask if there was something they could do, I couldn’t believe they actually served these wings to begin with and here I am paying over $12 for them.  The manager was there and he wasn’t too concerned, and after a couple minutes he decided on 30% off, I’m not sure how that was calculated or why, I thought about just leaving but that probably wouldn’t have went over very well, so I pulled out the credit card in agony and paid for the worst wings I’ve ever had in Halifax.

Total rating: 1.5/5

So, needless to say, I will never ever return to this place for anything.  I was told it’s pretty busy here for Tuesday wing night and everyone seems to enjoy the wings.  Have you ever had the wings here?   Let me know if you have, I really don’t understand how people would actually be able to say they really enjoy these wings, but if you’re one of them, I’m sorry to hear that.
