Local joint with a long history of producing some of the best wings in Lake County. You don't have to wait long to try their wings with various sauces. 9/10

Great wings, really good sauces. Service was fast and efficient. Although one of my sauces was half spilled when I got home, Watch the packing job, but otherwise delicious.

I'll admit I haven't been to Buffalo for wings just yet. However, having wings across the United States, I can say that I've had a lot of wings from many places. This is what I can tell you....this is one of the best places to get a traditional buffalo wing with a classic sauce that has been promoted ad Buffalo-style.... More

You can't go wrong with the wings, they are Bona Fide real live Buffalo Wings. Nothing fancy about the place just the real thing. They have burgers, fries, Cokes and other sanwiches as well.
