Sherman's Food Adventures: Wings Tap & Grill

Wings Tap & Grill

So what do you think a restaurant named "Wings" specializes in? Uh... Chicken Yakitori? No. Believe it or not, it's famous for its wide variey of chicken wings. Yes, it's as simple as that. There are not many restaurants that have wings on the very first page of their menu. In fact, it's a whole page with 15 different flavours of wings. There are 4 locations in the GVRD: Abbotsford, White Rock, Surrey and Vancouver. I made it out to the Surrey location today since I was going to Costco, which is nearby.

I guess it's no surprise that I ordered 4 pounds of wings for my meal. Actually I shared 4 pounds of wings with Waffle Guy, I'm not capable of eating 4 pounds by myself anymore. That was possible 10 years ago! Actually, Vivian had 4 pounds by herself once and you gotta love a woman who can do that! Anyways, we decided to order 4 different flavours: Not-as-hot Buffalo, Jammin' Jamaican, Outback Cajun BBQ, and Hot n' Sour Shanghai. All the flavours were distinct and very yummy. The buffalo wings were mild, with just a hint of heat. The Jamaican ones were slightly spicy and a hint of sweet. The BBQ was pretty standard BBQ sauce, it was mostly sweet with some smokiness. The Shanghai sauce was tangy with a bit of spice. The wings themselves were cooked perfectly, they were large and very juicy. I guess if your restaurant is named Wings, they'd better be good. I can honestly say that these are some of the best wings in town; finer dining establishments withstanding.

We didn't have a chance to try the other food at Wings; but from what I've heard, we didn't miss much. One flavour of wings we did not try were the Wings of Fire, and for good reason. Apparently, everyone at the table must sign a waiver if you are going to order them. That's right, they are THAT hot. According to many online reviews, the service is supposed to be terrible at Wings. However, I would like to differ, it was attentive and friendly. We always had our drinks refilled without asking and extra napkins arrived as we needed them. I'm not sure if I'll ever have a chance to try the other food here since the wings are so good.

The Good:
- Big, juicy wings
- Good choice of flavours
- Attentive service (at least that's what I experienced)

The Bad:
- Heard that the other food is average (but I've yet to try it, so not sure if that's true)

Yah, I used to go out for wings every Wednesday. It was Fogg n Sudd's, Malone's, and King's Head. We ate so many wings! I need to do that again...

I love this place and the service has always been great but those WOF aren't that hot it's those Bobby Wings you have to watch out for. The other ones are only tabasco wings so if you can handle tabasco sauce you can handle those wings of fire.
