Who Am I?
Who am I? Nobody really, just an average guy with an insatiable appetite for wings. Since 2000, I have been hopping from bar to restaurant to dive looking for great tasting wings. I would find myself in conversations with other wing eaters that went something like, “you know where you should go if you like good wings…” With that premise in mind, I figured everyone should know where they can find excellent wings… or for that matter, places to avoid.
Not all wing eaters are the same. You have the heat seekers who look for the boldest most insanely hot wing that they can get their hands on. You also have the flavor cravers who love the different styles and preparations of the wings (BBQ, honey glazed, etc). Then there is the mix – with just the right amount of heat, but not too hot so you can savor the flavor and enjoy the meal. This is the category that I fall into and is what I look at while writing my critiques. From time to time, I will ask for multiple wing variations or extra sides of the other sauces that a restaurant will carry to make my review a little more versatile. But ultimately, I judge on the standard buffalo. Because if they can’t get that right, then the rest doesn’t matter.
Finding a great wing place is a lot like dating. You test each one out until you find that place in which you can build into a relationship. It is my job to take all the initial steps to narrow your search. So, why should you consider me a reputable source? Because I live, sleep and breathe wings. But don’t let me just tell you, go to a place that I recommend and find out for yourself. Obviously living in Jersey means that most reviews will be near my own stomping grounds, however, there are plenty of places I visit while traveling for work. Rest assured, I will be eating wings when I am doing so, which means I will be reviewing them as well.
My goal is simple: Make an easy to find locator of all the places that I’ve tried. Then rate and review each one so you don’t have to.
So enjoy, and when you’re out and about looking for a great place to eat, remember it ain’t a party unless you “Bring the Wing!”
