Wild Wings vs Wings Stop
I have recently become obsessed with eating chicken wings. There is large debate where I come from, as to which restaurant us best, Buffalo Wild Wings or Wing Stop. In an attempt to quell this disagreement I have visited both establishments, and have come to a conclusive conclusion.
If you really want to know where your money would be best spent follow me after the break as we discuss the benefits of either wing place.
Buffalo Wild Wings: This place is wild. If you haven’t been before I would definitely recommend it. They always have multiple football games on their large screen plasma TVs as well as games like trivia that customers can play while waiting for their food (Caution, these activities may be habit forming.). Depending on when you go there will probably be a very loud crowd watching the game there, and cheering for their team, but that’s all part of the experience. They have a long list of flavors that all range in varying levels of spicyness. Even the honey barbecue has some kick to it. This is without a doubt the nicer of the two restaurants. When you go in you are seated by a hostess and served by a waiter/waitress.
Wing Stop: I went here on a whim a few nights ago because Qdoba was closed. It’s a totally different experience from BWW. Wing Stop is very much a fast food place. You order your wings at a counter, and pick them up after they are done cooking. There’s not much to say about the environment other than there’s not much to it. There isn’t nearly the selection of flavors that BWWs has, but what they have is pretty good. Don’t expect anything spicy unless you go for a traditional buffalo flavor.
Both restaurants are about the same price as far as wings goes, but there are some exceptions. On Tuesdays and Thursdays at BWW they have half price boned and half price boneless wings respectively. On the other side you don’t have to pay a tip at WS, so that’s probably going to be easier on the pocketbook either way.
In conclusion both places have their merits. I prefer BWWs because of the amount of flavors, and the service you get, but if you’re short on time or money, and don’t mind picking from a limited 6-7 non-spicy flavors Wing Stop is a great alternative.
