I enjoy the finer things in life, such as chicken wings and beer. I’ve created this blog to share my experiences with fellow wing lovers. My goal is to try as many different wing establishments as possible while rating each one. Feel free to leave any comments/suggestions. Enjoy!
I didn’t have much of a choice but to go out for wings on National Chicken Wing Day, so I went to the place that’s always been my all time favorite wing destination – the Pogue Fado. I’m happy to say they still have the best wings around and they are $0.35/wing between 7:30 - 9:30 PM Monday to Friday.
Breading: 5/5 – Full even crispy golden coating that was not too thick and crunchy, I wish it was mandatory for wings everywhere to be breaded like this.
Perfect breading with an excellent coating of dry Cajun.
Overall quality: 5/5 – Once you get through the breading the chicken was a tasty treat, very fresh, nice and moist, not overly greasy, and there were no overly fatty or dark spots. These are the perfect wings!
Sauce selection: 5/5 – Even though the Pineapple Curry and Frank's Gold have been retired, twenty two sauces still makes for a great selection. My top choices are the dry Cajun on with Hot and Sweet or Southwest Chipotle on the side.
Excellent sauce selection.
Size: 5/5 – Even under the coating of breading on them, these wings had some meat. Both the drumsticks and flatties had a healthy helping of chicken to them.
A nice thick flattie.
Service: 5/5 – This was the best service I’ve ever had at the Pogue, prompt and friendly, I hope this trend continues.
Overall rating: 5/5
I’ve reviewed the Pogue a couple of times before, but not since I've introduced the new rating system, so it’s only fair I rate them on that as well. This is the first place with a 5/5 rating, and they truly deserve it.
Many people ask me where the best wings are, and I always say the Pogue, they’ve never let me down. I’m going to continue the adventure of trying wings at new places, but I’m skeptical if I will ever really find a better place for wings. If you think you know of a better place, let me know and I’d happily try them. I may even treat you to them if you're right.
