The Armview has been around for quite some time and it’s been a while since I’ve visited.  This place is not known as a wing establishment as far as I’m aware but of course I had to order the wings anyway.  They are $9/pound and there are no wing specials. 

Breading: 5/5 – The wings were well coated with a golden colored breading that had a nice crispyness, no complaints here. 
Some nice looking wings. 
Overall quality: 5/5 – I was very impressed with these wings, they were cooked to perfection, had a very fresh taste to them and didn’t contain any dark pieces of chicken.

I heard this place uses a lot of local food however I forgot to ask if the wings were local or not.  Please let me know if anyone can confirm or deny that. 

Sauce selection: 1/5 – Your choices are BBQ or spicy buffalo, I went with the spicy buffalo on the side and it was delicious

As a reminder, the sauce selection category is based on the number of sauces, not the quality.  Click here for the official wing rating scale post. 

Service: 5/5 – The service could not have been any better.  We were greeted quickly, our waitress was friendly and personable, food arrived fast and drink refills were offered.  We could not have asked for a better service experience.

Size: 4/5 – The wings looked to be a fairly average size however they all contained a quite a bit of meat on them. 
A pretty good sized flattie.
Overall rating: 4/5

The Armview is located in an area that I do not travel by very frequently, however I will be sure to go out of my way and return the next time I’m craving their wings and a delicious milkshake to wash them down.  

** Update - Thanks to @johnroy_ I have recently been advised that the wings are indeed local and they are from Oulton's Farm.
