Terrific at the Timberlea Beverage Room!


The name says it all, it really is a room.  After I sat down and took a look around, I wasn’t even too sure if there was a kitchen in this place, but I’m glad I stayed around, because this mysterious kitchen sure knows how to put out some delicious wings.  


Wing specials occur a few times a week – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM.  A pitcher of Coors Light and 20 wings will run you $21.99, or $0.50/wing if beer is not your thing.  I’m going to have to double check on what the full price is next time I’m there.  


Breading: 4/5 – I was very impressed with the healthy coating of golden crisp breading, you could pretty much break a good size piece off to dip in the sauce before you get at the chicken, for some reason I really enjoy that.
Some nice looking wings.
Overall Quality: 4/5 – I was quite impressed with these wings.  The chicken had a nice fresh taste and didn’t contain a lot of dark pieces.  I found you had to put a good effort working your way through the drumsticks though, that part of the wing was a bit tough.  I’m a fan of the flatties anyway, the meat always seems to be a bit more tender.

Sauce Selection: 3/5 – Sauces included mild, medium, hot, suicide, honey garlic, BBQ and sweet and sour.  I went with the hot on the side.  The first few dips in the hot sauce had a pretty good kick to it.  


Service: 5/5 – The service was excellent!  Even though I’ve never been in this place before, it felt like I was a regular customer that stops by every day.  The waiter and waitress were very friendly and personable right from the moment we sat down and until the bill was paid.  Our order was taken quickly and the wings didn’t take long to arrive.  


Size: 3/5 – The wings were a fairly average size and consistent, not too big and not too small.

Overall: 3.8/5


I would definitely go back for wings at the TBR, and that will probably be sooner than later.  However I do think a dry spice on the wings would make an excellent addition, and that goes for wings from any establishment.    


As a side note I was recently introduced to an amazing dry spice from “The Dizzy Pig Barbecue Company”.  They have a great selection of dry spices to choose from, you can see their site here - http://www.dizzypigbbq.com.  


When I first visited their site I noticed they were located in Virginia, that’s a little ways away but I knew I had to have some and luckily enough I found a local place where they are sold - Sparkling Pools and Spas on Main Street in Dartmouth.  You can find them @SpasDartmouth.  I bought the Swamp Venom and it has an excellent spicy flavour to it.  I’ve been putting it on the majority of the food I have consumed lately.  If you're a fan of dry spice, I would highly recommend checking them out.
