Wild Wing Cafe - University
This was our first time here, on a Sunday evening. The restaurant is about a quarter full. But they only had two cooks, two servers, and one bartender. The place looked pretty dead. The restaurant itself is nice, spacious, and they even have a stage for live music. We had the crispy chicken sandwich and a grilled chicken sandwich. Our server was doing his best to keep our drinks full and got our orders to us as quickly as he could. I believe the he was the only server and the supervisor was helping him serve the tables. Our food took o we half an hour to get to us and they forgot the cheese sticks. The crispy chicken sandwiches were pretty good, I liked their secret sauce. It was like a matchup, mayo, and pickle flavor. Worked really well with the chicken, though it was over cooked. In the flip side, the grilled chicken. Was almost raw and cold. We had to send it back and swapped it for a crispy chicken sandwich. I would give this place another shot, but I would wait for them to hire more staff.
It seemed pretty quiet today when we went in. We were seated right away. The atmosphere was really nice. Plenty of TV's allowing opportunity to watch games on anyone. We ordered The Original Crispy Chicken sandwich, Nashville Hot Fried Chicken sandwich, Buffalo Mild Wings & Fiery Peach Wings. All with fries. The chicken sandwich came with a special sauce to give it a spicy kick. I think that the chicken on the sandwiches were fried too hard and my sons Buffalo Chicken Bites as you can see in the pics. The fries were good. Everyone ate the food otherwise.
there were literally four bones in my one chicken wing and this happened multiple times. almost all of the wings were overcooked and burnt to a crisp, and most of the bones were broken in half like 23 out of 25 wings. we couldn't even tell the sauces apart and the quality of the wings was just disgusting. I couldn't even eat some of them but I would give this one star if any. I literally grew up eating wild Wing Cafe so I don't understand why this one is so different than the rest of all the other ones I've ever been to. I'm literally I'm going somewhere else to buy us dinner right now because it looks too disgusting to eat. Like there we're still fried feathers and some of them and most of them broke apart as we were eating them, I've never eaten wings like this and I'll never be ordering from here again. This was an absolute waste of $40 and my husband saidhe doesn't know how this place is still in business with food like this. Very disappointed, do not eat here. Management, fix your restaurant. My wings were practically out of something like Frankenstein.
I think the best thing is the unique wing flavors. I gave the four because the meal & service overall. The hostess actually ended up being our server she was nice & helpful. I definitely recommend the spicy peach flavor wings. I personally didn't like the maplelicous or the bubbas bbq. The wings themselves were good even though some did seem just sauced and not as hot as the others that could be how the sauces are made... The bleu cheese & ranch seemed homemade and tasted really good. I don't think the fries are worth the price though. As you can see in the pictures it's not a great amount of fries for $6 and they are not seasoned. I did see a relation as to other comments there was a worker kinda of working and sitting with a customer/friend having a conversation that shouldn't be heard from customers if they are on the clock. Management /owners may need to look into this asap to fix business.
Only reason Im rating this as 1 star because of the sweet girl at the pickup order line. Desiree was amazing and took my order perfectly. I tried to place this order online and received a notification to call the store for further assistance. I called the store at least 5 with no answer before riding up there. It is Thursday so one of the busiest nights during the week. I asked Desiree was the phone broken and she assured me it wasnt, she just couldnt hear it which I get because of the location and the loudness in the building. I placed my order everything was great she sent it to the kitchen and said it would be a 25-30 minute wait. I told her I wanted it ready for pickup at 9:30. So she ran back to the kitchen to let them know to hold off on making it until later so it could be hot and fresh when we picked it up. She assured me they would wait. I paid. Got my receipt and went home. My husband went to pick the food up on the way home from work. He called me at the restaurant around 9:30. The food was completely cold. No visible sauce on the wings. Pizza COLD. Onion rings COLD. CHICKEN WINGS COLD. Not even like warm but cold. Im pretty sure they made the order and let it sit there for an hour and knowingly still gave us this food. Did not include our celery either. Very disappointed as this was our first time going here. Not satisfied with the quality of our food at alllll. Not satisfied with the online experience and the fact that no one was answering the phone so I had to physically drive to this location. Only thing that made this get a star was DESIREE and her upbeat personality and customer service
