This is the best wing place I’ve been to so far in El Paso. From the service, value, to the food itself, it was a flawless experience.
Service: I was greeted immediately upon entering and was told I could sit anywhere. The tables were clean and well prepped with the menu already there.
After I was seated the cashier/server appeared to take my drink order. I had to ask him to repeat himself a couple of times since the music was so loud, and I was surprised when the music lowered as he left for the drinks. It means that they take suggestions and care about their clients comfort.
He came back with the sweet iced tea (freshly made since it was not as chilled like it would be from a machine). I could taste the tea as it wasn’t overly sweet. He asked me for my order and I asked if I could do a half boneless and half bone in lunch order and he said yes and accommodated! The 2 sauces I picked were the hot (their Buffalo sauce) and the Miner Gold (sweet and spicy). It also came with either Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing.
I then asked for the wifi code and it took several tries but he was so helpful in getting it online. There were others eating and I saw that he took care of everyone’s needs as well with boxes and extra utensils, in addition to answering phone orders.
Food: My food came out fairly quickly and I got the wings naked with the sauces on the side. The wings were perfect. Golden brown and crispy on the outside without extra grease, and the inside was juicy and tender without any blood or brown spots. It didn’t need any extra flavors, it was lightly salted. The best part is that they gave me flats which I love and didn’t have to ask for. The wings were fairly big as well.
The boneless came breaded and it wasn’t dry inside. The waffle fries were not overly fried and both tasted heavenly with the wing sauce. I liked the Buffalo with the vinegary kick, and the ranch was rich and creamy, but the star and surprise was the Miner Gold. Oh my stars, the sauce was the perfect combo of sweet, spicy and a hint of coconut cream. It was incredible. I would buy the sauce and put it on everything.
He checked on me various times and refilled my ice tea and when the check came, it was less than $11 for all that food! I was so full I didn’t even finish my fries. What an outstanding value for the lunch special!
I gave him a generous tip for the excellent service being that he was the only staff up front. The cook was a young woman and I complimented her on the best wings I’ve had in town! I’m definitely coming back here with it hitting all the right notes of service, value, and taste. Come out and support local!
