Challenged Chickens At Cheachie's

I discovered Cheachie’s Grill a while ago, a nice cozy place tucked away in Bayer’s Lake.  After trying their food recently (I had the best ham and potatoes there around Easter), I knew I had to go back to try their wings, unfortunately they did not live up to their expectations. 

Wing night is Wednesday, a pitcher of draught and a pound of wings is $15.95, a pound of wings by themselves is $7.95, but I’d recommend to go all out and get the pitcher too.  I’m not too sure what the regular price is. 

Breading: n/a – Not breaded, but I’ve had some good non breaded wings recently.  That streak didn’t last long. 

Overall quality: 2/5 – The little meat that was found on these wings didn’t have a bad taste to it, but these were some small ugly looking wings.  Random bones sticking out, one looked like there was already a bite taken out of it while another managed to have a small crater dug in it. 

Looks like some meat is missing.

Sauce selection: 2/5 - BBQ, Mild, Medium, Cheach & Insane.  I went with the Cheach on the side.  I was initially told that I could not have the sauce on the side, but they made an exception.  After receiving the wings I fully understood why they do not want you to get the sauce on the side.  The sauce was the best part of the whole meal, a mix between hot and sweet with a really nice flavor. 

Service: 4/5 – Excellent service and that is part of the reason I will return.  I also appreciate honesty, and when I asked how the wings were, the waitress was honest and said horrible.  That should have been a good indication for me to reconsider, but I didn't.

Size: 1/5 – These were some pretty small wings.

Overall rating: 2.25/5

I will return to Cheachie’s as they have a pretty diverse menu - pizza, Italian, Mexican, fish and chips, steak and perhaps what they may be best known for, hamburgers.  I just won’t make the mistake of ordering wings next time I return.  

And as a side note, if you know any good arm wrestler's, I'd advise to bring him/her with you as you may get a free meal.  Let me know how that works out if you make an attempt.
