Saint Danes makes some mighty fine wings for 25 cents a piece. The wings aren’t the uber plump kind, but better than the tiny things you get when you go to Wing Stop. They come generously drenched in sauce, which I personally like. Atmosphere is always great, but their open garage door setup can get hot during the summer.
4.5 out of 5 here. It misses the 5 rating, because I wish they had better air conditioning.
A few years ago, Two Rows in West U replaced their brew master and really changed a very good thing they had. My favorite is the Oatmeal Stout, which seems like it’s never available anymore and tastes much different than what used to be available. This is one of the reasons I rarely go to this place anymore, but I still want to share what I think about their wings.
Good thing is that Two Rows offers specials on their wings 4 out of 7 days a week. It’s not the cheapest, but the wings aren’t so bad. They’re big, and they taste pretty good in my opinion. But I think what makes Two Rows a really great deal is that you can get wings for about $0.41/wing on Wednesday nights, but also get a pint of beer for a buck each to wash it down. For about $15 bucks, you can be a very satisfied thirsty bar food connoisseur.
For Wednesday nights, I give this place a 3 out of 5. For all other days, I’d tag it with a 2 out of 5, just because I think they can make the wings a little cheaper and let me have cheap wings throughout the week.
This is probably my favorite wing special out of the entire week. It’s not the cheapest at $0.40/wing, but the wings are pretty damn good here. The wings that they use here are probably the biggest I’ve seen around town, and the chef is very generous with the sauce that gets served with the wings. Truly a wing-lover’s winning combination.
Firkin gets a 4.5 out of 5, just because I wish the wings and beer were a little cheaper. But then again, this is the only notable wing special on Tuesday nights so far. If you’re not in for the numerous steak deals on Tuesdays that you can see at houstonsteaknight.com, this is probably the place you want to be at.
If you’re an Aggie, then you probably know Wings ‘N More much better than others. It may have changed, but this place was still a favorite among folks in College Station not too long ago… and from the looks of the place on Wednesdays, folks in Houston are big fans too.
But I’m just a dude that appreciates value and taste, which Wings ‘N More fails to deliver on. The hook here is the 2 for 1 deal that they offer, which works itself out to be about $0.38 a wing. Being that this is only a couple cents cheaper than Firkin’s wings, I couldn’t really say that it’s much of a value… especially because Firkin is always so generous with their huge wings, and their generosity with the sauce.
I didn’t like the 30 minute wait I had to get a table, nor did I enjoy the skimpy wings and their mediocre sauces. Overall, the experience gets a 2 out of 5. I suppose they can get a 1 point boost in ratings from me, just because the waitress was so nice and brought out a fresh order of fries within 5 minutes of telling her that the fries she had brought out were cold and soggy. But then again, why was I served a cold order of fries to begin with?
BW3 is a local favorite whenever a sporting event comes up. Their service is pretty good, and the atmosphere is pretty good for a bunch of people to get together to get some food and beer.
As far as their wings go, I’d have to say I’m a little on the fence about the $0.50/wing deal here. It really comes down to the size of their wings being comparable to the tiny wings you would get at Wing Stop, or even Front Porch Pub. But at least Front Porch Pub only charges $0.25/wing during their specials.
They do have a wide selection of sauces that you can have the wings tossed in, but I’m still not sure if that compensates for the expensive beers that you’re having to buy to fill yourself up.
This place gets a 2 out of 5, simply because I don’t find it to be much of a value compared to other specials around town.
Front Porch Pub has always been a cool place in Midtown that I like to go if I’m looking for a laid back place for a pitcher of beer, and maybe a few rounds of Golden Tee with my buddies. But on Monday nights, it becomes a place to go for a whole different reason.
FPP offers up 3 different flavors of wings at $0.25 a piece, which is pretty much the bottom price for wings at any wing special joint in town. During my visit, I tried the BBQ and the Spicy Hot, which were both very tasty. The size of the wings were a little disappointing, but what could I expect for a quarter?
To add, they offer $2 domestic pints and $8 pitchers. After 2 hours of me and my buddy stuffing down 45 wings, 5 pints of domestic, one pitcher, and couple very frustrating rounds of cricket, we paid $40 bucks and walked away ($33.xx tab, $6.xx tip).
On a scale of 1 to 5, I’d probably rate this experience a 4 just because the beer and wings were so damn cheap, as well as having cool atmosphere where I could hang out with a friend comfortably without fighting for breathing room.
This is one of the best deals for wings I’ve found so far @ $0.25 per wing. The wings are generously covered in sauce, and the draft beers are 3 bucks. I have to warn you though, the bar gets pretty crowded on Tuesdays. So get there early if your’e trying to get a table for a large group.
$0.50 a wing special.
