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!
♫“Swing on in, swing in to Jungle Jim’s”♫ is the jingle played over and over in my head after watching one too many commercials
recently, so I took the plunge and finally swung on in.
Jungle Jim’s is a family restaurant with a large
menu and an interesting ambiance. We
went in around supper time on a Wednesday and there was a very powerful wing
aroma as soon as I stepped through the first set of doors, I was hoping this
was going to be a good sign. We were
advised there was going to be about a 10 - 15 minute wait for a seat and even
though I’m not the most patient person we decided to wait it out and noticed a lot of people eating wings during that time.
Wednesday after 4:00 PM with a beverage purchase is “Wild Wacky Wing Nite” and that means a
pound of wings is only $6.29 or if you’re feeling extra hungry you can get all
you can eat wings plus seven different types of appetizers for $15.99. There is a no sharing rule in affect
according to the menu, however it didn’t mention what the penalty may be if you
caught breaking that rule. I was a bit
on the hungry side that night so I went with the all you can eat deal and I
knew I was going to need something to quench my thirst so I was glad to see a
34 oz draught was only $8.99 which isn’t too bad of a deal at all.
Breading: n/a – Breading is not an option so this
category will not be rated.
Overall quality: 2/5 – There was no dark meat which is
good but they had a non-pleasant lingering taste to them, perhaps there were in
a frozen state for a while before being cooked.
Not overly appealing.
Sauce selection: 3/5 - Dry-Spiced, Honey Garlic,
BBQ-Style, Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Thai, Mild, Medium, Hot, Suicide or Insanity Style
are your sauce choices, I went with the Dry-Spiced on (which was very sparingly
I may add) and the Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Thai on the side.
If you are interested in the Insanity Style your
signature will be required on a waiver and they challenge you to devour 8 of
them bare to the bone within 10 minutes.
I’m not too sure if you get anything other than bragging rights on their
Facebook page, but if that’s your thing this challenge may be for you.
Service: 5/5 – We were fortunate enough to have an
excellent server considering how busy the place was. Our server made us feel welcome, came back on a few occasions to see how things were going and the food didn't take long at all to arrive.
Size: 2/5 – The wings were under par in the size
Some skinny wings.
Overall rating: 3/5 - A decent sauce selection and terrific service were the positive points for this review, it's too bad the wings weren't of a higher caliber. I won’t be swinging back on in to Jungle Jim’s for the
food any time soon, but if I do end up back there I’ll be sure to take advantage
of that 34 oz draught again.
