We've been in Durango for almost 2 years now and just discovered this place. Finally we found a great place for wings! They were really good and my daughter loved the chicken fingers. We tried the Sweet Teriyaki and the Honey BBQ sauces and they were both excellent. Went on a Sunday evening. There was no wait, service was super... More

The wings are good and are sold by the pound and not by quantity. The wings are good. Only two flavor allowed for large orders. The wait is a little long but they can mix really good drinks while you wait. The staff let us know what to expect and where very attentive.

This is the only place I have gone for a meal and felt really uncomfortable. I'm not sure if it's because it is a small room and you feel like you are walking in to someone's living room and everyone stops and looks at you. I ordered the soup and chicken dinner but the soup came out after the chicken... More

Newly remodeled and better than ever! Great, plump meaty wings and fingers with dozens of creative choices in sauces. Be ready if you go full HOT, you won't be disappointed. 3.5 for the more mild patrons. Staff is super friendly and will help you navigate your order. A dozen new big screen TVs with the best live games on. Fast,... More

Wings are big and meaty. Sauces are extremely tasty. Though not an obvious location, it is well worth seeking out! Great place to watch a football game.

The chicken was hot and delicious. Great service too! We got the chicken breast with 2 wings. When they say the wings are huge, they're not lying.

Really casual especially if you just drove into town and you are hungry, great menu, with sports TV going. Little hard to get into if you have a walker or a stroller.
