"Wing 'n It" has just opened its doors in the old Folly location
Posted on: Saturday, February 26th, 2011
Well, well, what do we have here? 93 flavors of wings?
Not gotten a chance to visit the new taste that’s taken up residence in the old Folly location, well what the hell man? Located on Bates Hill, the place has 93 flavors of wings from maple, to dill, to honey, and of course BBQ to name just a few. With sauce names like “Amelia Earhart”, “Commando” and “Friendly Fire” picking out your favorite quickly becomes a task, but a fun one. The food comes quick and the appetizers (we ordered sweet potato fries) were just enough for couples sharing before your order of wings hit the table.
One thing to consider is that if you enjoy your wings hot-n-spicy then skip right to the 4+ star flavors. Between us, we’d selected some which were 2 star and frankly, they were too weak for our adventurous palates. They were good nonetheless, but our eyes didn’t water nor did sweat bead up on my forehead.
What should keep you coming back? Besides the tasty food, it’s the customer service. The staff from top to bottom were all very nice and prudent about their tasks. Nothing annoys patrons more when getting their meal than waiting five minutes for a drink to go with it… no such thing at Wing ‘n it.
What might turn you away? Portions could stand to be a touch larger and/or the wing sizes could be larger. The seating is tight, we were literally less then an arms reach away from the table next to us. The atmosphere makes up for this but don’t go if you intend on discussing private business.
Final bill for two? After a shared appetizer, a couple drinks and a sharing platter of wings the total was just about $50 after tip. Certainly not the best bang for buck in town — Red Pepper anyone? — but fairly priced and considering how unique the choice, you can’t go wrong.
Would I go again? Without hesitation, after all I’ve got another 89 flavors to try.
