Love smoked wings. Shout out to Cobra Lounge on Ashland for that, since everyone’s giving love to their favorite locals.

Now THERE is a dream - fast-casual frog legs to go. I’m in. How much money do you want me to invest?

I mentioned this to someone upthread, but it was more a case of the wings being damn near identical. Same size, same general quality, the occasional dud in an otherwise normal batch. Nothing about either place’s wing was super notable, with the caveat that I generally prefer wings served whole, like Wingstop does.

I can’t get past EA trying to sell me the same wings with a new roster every year. It’s like they don’t respect my intelligence.

I’m not ignorant so much as I had the term “B-Dubs” ruined for me some years back so I don’t use it. (It’s not an interesting story - someone I really didn’t like used it incessantly and that’ll ruin you for stuff.)

They dropped “Weck” from the name in the late 90s. Which is sad, as I really like weck.

Important point to note: The actual size and quality of the wings were almost identical at both places for this piece. I do see “X wings are way better than Y” a lot, and that wasn’t my experience here. Obviously can’t speak for other states/locations/supplier,etc.

If it helps, I really wanted to like them. I don’t know if that second bit says more about Wingstop or San Antonio, though.

This contest is meaningless. Chicken wing advice from a vegetarian, on the other hand ... (?)

Yeah, when people talk about the big commercial wing chains, it’s usually Buffalo Wild Wings, Wingstop, and Pok Pok.

Live in Texas or Louisiana or never have wings for the rest of my life? I mean, it’s a clearly drawn ethos, so respect on that.
