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 ended up at Favorites the other night which is part of
the Days Inn in Dartmouth. Wings are $0.50/wing on
Thursday’s and regular price is $6.95 for
ten wings. The place was pretty empty
when we arrived and I didn't notice anyone else with wings, I would soon find
Breading: 3/5 – The wings had a thin layer of breading
that didn’t contain much flavor.
Dwarfed by the large dipping sauce container.
Overall quality: 2/5 – The first thing I noticed with
these wings were how dry the chicken was.
After that the next thing I noticed was a very bland taste, I wasn’t
very impressed. I’ve had some pretty dry
and bland wings before, however I was a bit turned off after ripping my way through
one of the drumsticks …
Not an appealing looking wing.
Sauce selection: 2/5 – A large sauce selection wouldn’t
have made a difference with the overall experience, but I had honey garlic,
mild, hot and BBQ to choose from. I went
with hot on the side. As a side note,
they do provide a good helping of sauce for your dipping pleasure.
Service: 3/5 – The wings seemed to take a fair amount of
time to arrive and the service was pretty standard. A drink refill was offered at the end of the meal.
Size: 3/5 – There wasn’t much meat to the flatties but
the drumsticks were a pretty average size.
Not a very big flattie, and it was pretty thin.
Overall rating: 2.6/5
This won’t be a place I’ll be returning for wings at any
point. I’m still a bit thrown off how
they managed to be so dry but still included a wing that looked a bit on the
raw side to me. Perhaps I’ll try the
nachos next if I ever return.
On a side note - I enjoy flatties more than the drumstick wings. I was a bit disappointed to see my order only contained two flatties. On my next wing adventure, I am going to try to remember to request all flatties. I'm not sure if I'll get some weird looks with this request or what. Have you ever made such a request? I'm curious how this will turn out.
