Wingstop a casual eatery where sauce is boss


MENU

Wingstop, as the name implies, specializes in chicken wings. Prices range from $7.49 for six boneless wings with a side dish and a drink to $55.99 for 50 wings with several side orders. Wingstop serves 11 types of sauces, ranging from a sweet teriyaki flavor to an ultra-hot “atomic” dip. A few types of bottled beers are available.

ATMOSPHERE

Wingstop is a national chain of casual eateries. The restaurant on Military Trail includes a few tables, but takeout orders accounted for most of the business during our lunchtime visit.

OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE

We liked the 10-piece wings combo ($11.99). The sauces were a mixed bag. The teriyaki was cloyingly sweet, but a few of the hotter sauces carried a pleasing kick. The fries ($3.79) were excellent. The crispy tenders ($11.59 for five pieces) were soggy and flavorless.

REASON TO GO

Quick service and an intriguing variety of wing sauces.

SERVICE

Friendly. You order at the counter and then wait for your food, so service isn’t a major factor. Wingstop lets you order online.

NOISE LEVEL

Quiet. A basketball game played on the television in the restaurant.

KID FRIENDLY

Yes. The atmosphere is casual, and prices are modest.
