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!
Another NFL season is in the books which means the Sunday
void will be filled with watching my other favorite sport – golf.
I’ve been hearing about Patrons Golf & Lounge for a
little while now and figured it would be a great time to take a visit and watch
the final round of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am while trying some new wings. I was happy to see the game on the TVs when I
arrived however I was also hoping for sound, but it was Valentine’s Day after all
so I’m sure no one else wanted to hear it.
I was assured the sound will be loud and clear when the Masters is on.
I was impressed the moment I walked through the door. This place has a nice upscale type feel to it
with beautiful decor, multiple TVs and of course a few giant screens for the
golf simulators, these things looked awesome!
I’ll be sure my clubs accompany me on the next visit, I can use all the
practice I can get before spring arrives.
Now, on to the main reason for the visit - to try some
Patrons Crispy Wings. A pound will run
you $12 and if you find yourself there on a Wednesday or Sunday you can save a
couple bucks. From 4:00 – 10:00 PM you
can choose between a draft and a pound of wings for $14 or $10 if you skip the beer,
but who skips out on beer with wings?
I took a seat at the bar and proceeded with my order. It was love at first sight.
Breading: 5/5 – If you’re a breading fan then these are the
wings for you. Each wing contained a
very thick coat of breading that packed a solid crunch, I was very impressed.

Overall Quality: 4/5 – Based on the size I was a little
afraid of what I was about to find under the breading however I was happy to
see little to no dark meat. They were
nice and juicy and cooked all the way through (if it was me cooking them they
would be burnt on the outside and raw in the middle I’m sure, this may have
happened to me before).
The only issue I had was a picking around a few fatty type
pieces however I would think this is unavoidable due to the size.
Sauce Selection: 2/5 – Your options are Buffalo dipping
sauce, Blue Cheese dressing, BBQ, Sweet Chili or Lime Sea Salt. The sauce selection was not nearly as unique
as I was expecting, some sort of signature house made sauce would have been
really nice to try (preferably with a golf related name but that may be
A couple of other dry spice options would also be nice to
see to toss these jumbo wings around in and provide further flavor to the beautiful
Service: 4/5 – As soon as I took a seat I was asked if I was
interested in a beverage and a beer was in front of me in no time.
I eventually grabbed a menu to gaze at and even though I
already knew I was going to order the wings I wanted to try a lot of other
items, I guess this is what return visits are for. My order was placed and I was hoping for some
Buffalo sauce however I was told it is no longer available and the sauce
selection will be narrowed down in March.
I was slightly disappointed as this is a fairly standard sauce and
always a good choice but oh well, there were other options (I later learned the
sauces will not be changing and there must have been an oversight there, no big
The wings didn’t take too long to arrive and drink refills
were offered, which I gladly accepted.
Size: 5/5 – These might have been the largest wings I have
ever seen! The thick layer of breading
may enhance the size a bit but there was certainly no shortage of meat
Overall Rating: 4/5
If you’re a fan of golf, beer and wings I would definitely
recommend checking this place out. Bring
your clubs and look forward to a pound of delicious wings after the 18th,
I know that’s what I’ll be doing on my next visit.
