    Our last experience at BWW wasn't all that good either. We've had a good experiences during the week at lunch time though. We've only been to the Concord NH location. I really like the Wings Over Worcester store of the Wings Over (insert city here) chain. They've got tasty sauces and the #5 hot wing sauce is indeed pretty hot.

    Tuesday night tradition at work is to go to Hooters for unlimited wings..... one of my guys always asks "Why can't we do BWW".... I concur, they suck

    I also have good wings @ Famous Dave (chain store). Not the one in Scarborough ME, but around VA & MN. ME one sucks.

    I've only been to BWW once and it was nothing to write home about. Went to the one in Brockton before my band played a show and it was just ok. I live a mile down the street from Wendell's so the bar is set pretty high.

    BWW down in Georgia is pretty good about juicy wings and crispy skin. Up here? I've consistently gotten soggy pieces of junk.

    Though, I just love the mango habernero sauce. It's like crack.

    I can't speak for most of their food because I usually just get fried pickles and wings. Oh, and never order the boneless wings. They're usually bland and have just a tiny bit of sauce.

    BWW had lousy food. There is one that is 5min from my house in Shrewsbury.. There is a young lady that works there that has one of the top 5 asses in the world.

    Wings Over Springfield/The Hanger is one of the very very VERY few things I really miss about Mass [sad2].

    BWW has some of the tiniest worst tasting wings I've ever had. I've had other things trying to find something good. But regretted going every time I ended up there. That place sucks and I've finally smartened up and stopped going.

    Tony, go to Duffs in Buffalo. Better than anchor bar, but if your looking for the place where wings began, than Anchor bar is it. 4 year stint at University at Buffalo, I'd pick Duffs everyrime.

    Wendall's in Norton is still the best IMHO. The 3.5 flavor is probably the best combo of flavor and heat I've tried for a buffalo wing. Simply delicious. The wing size has unfortunately have gotten smaller over the years which sucks but the flavor still rocks.

    The hanger is great, as is Buffs. DJ's in Hyannis is solid as well. Love trying new places. Will travel for wings!

    so you are recommending that in a restaurant called "Buffalo wild wings" that you avoid the wings???!

    that would be like going to McDonalds and avoiding the hamburgers! oh....wait...

    Yeah, not impressed with BWW. This however, I go with two of my friends a couple times a month strictly for this reason. We call her space pants.

    Everytime we say we're not ordering food, but after a few beers it always seems like a good idea. DJ's in Hyannis and Wings Over Worcester are the best I've had.

    Wendell's claim to fame is putting a truck-load of garlic powder on their wings. Meh. Never been a fan.

    I hear the ones at St James Irish Pub (I know!) in FR are pretty good AND pretty big. A kid at the bank eats there for lunch EVERY day. Hotwings at the bar and a coke. LOL

    Years ago, there was a restaurant in the parking lot of the hotel on 103 in Somerset. (I'm sure there is STILL a restaurant, but this one closed for health code violations.) They did boneless hot wings. And they were DRY. Oh gosh. All the flavor, none of the mess. Very handy for lunchtime. I have no idea how, but it was sublime.

    LOL, nope you did not recommend it. That blame has my wife written all over it. Her idea and all. Interesting how she wanted to go there and then ordered a burger instead of wings.

    Oh and the ammo is just right!!!

    This post sums up my experience exactly. Garbage food no better than a frozen bag of Tyson boneless. Personally I'm a fan of cluck u chicken but they're not up in this area

    Buffs Pub is generally very good but can be variable in quality if they are super busy. Charlie O's on Pt. Judith in RI is awesome for wings. The sauce is a complex burn not just hot sauce and the wings are crunchy.

    I recently visited TBones after not living in Plymouth for 6 years now. I was thoroughly disappointed that they no longer have my buffalo chicken dip. Still, phenomenal scenery there I you know what I mean.
