Ghastly Gatsby's

It has been a few years since I’ve been to Gatsby’s, and now I know why.  This place isn’t a wing destination by any means, hence the full price and horribly small wings. 
I believe “gourmet” pizza is their selling point from what I could tell, but even that wasn’t really good.  I honestly think they shouldn’t even have wings as an option on the menu, they were pretty disappointing, especially for $9.00 a pound.  

Breading: n/a - I was told before I ordered they were not breaded but I wanted to try them anyway.  Breading wouldn’t have made any difference with these wings. 

Overall Quality: 1/5 – Kind of slimeyish, no flavor and really, really small. 
Looks like they try to hide the wings in a mess of lettuce, celery and carrot
Sauce selection: 3/5 – Sauces include mild, medium, hot, honey garlic, sweet chili, blue cheese and ranch.         

Service: 2/5 – It wasn’t very busy but the best part about the service was a drink refill.  He didn’t ask how our food was (I find most places will usually pop by at least once just to see how you are enjoying things)  after clearly seeing I only ate two wings and pushed the rest of them aside by the time the pizza arrived. 

Size: 1/5 – I couldn’t believe the size of a few of these wings!  A couple of people on Twitter had some pretty accurate descriptions of this pic:
That's not a giant fork
@guslab98 – “OMG. Somewhere there's a hummingbird with one wing.”
@brewnoser – “that canary was fat!!”

Those two statements pretty much sum it up.  I’ve decided an average size fork is a pretty good comparison for a pic.  I may try to use this idea for future pics for size comparison purposes. 

Total rating: 1.75/5

Needless to say, if for some reason I ever end up back at Gatsby’s, I’ll be sure to never order the wings again.  


  1. gatsbys is actually known more for its pizza, so you gotta cut them a break, haha.

    your site is awesome. thanks

  2. Wow, don't know how I didn't see your comment until now. Gatsby's did have good pizza for sure. I'm so late replying to this that Gatsby's isn't even open any longer, lol. I forget what it's called now but maybe I should I try it out sometime soon. Thanks.

  3. It's the Fickle Frog now...and yeah, they were never known for their wings. I would see other people order them, which is why I never did LOL

    1. Maybe that is why I didn't notice anyone else eating the wings, lol. I may have to visit again to see if the new name includes new wings.
