Like the atmosphere if I was with some buddies for a drink and sports and cheap bar food. Not for children even though it looks like it might. Place is choking with cigarette smoke! Food is poorly prepared,disappointing portions. I wish I didn't see the pics in the menu or if I was drunk I probably would not have cared.... More

We used to go here regularly a couple years ago but the food had gotten to be just another over cooked version of BWW - fried the hades out of EVERYTHING. My grown kids enticed us to go back and we found they have a largely changed menu. The selection of wings and sauces are still there but also a... More

Quaker Steak & Lube has all You Can Eat Wings every Tuesday. A wide selection of wings, all very good. Buffet has other items, salad; pizza; Chicken tenders and some wings, etc., but can order other selections on menu. Sports Bar so can watch games while enjoying wings. Very good.

Burgers are good size but nothing special. Staff was cheerful and attentive. Noisy but good place hang for drinks.

I finally make a trip here after seeing this place a couple of years ago on “Man vs Food” with Adam Richmond. Boy was it a BIG disappointment!!!!! First off, they have a smoking room which you can smell the smoke throughout the restaurant to the point that my clothes smell like I was in the room. As a former... More

For my money, one of the best burger joints in Newport News. I was there many months ago and have wanted to get back but things just got in the way. Today I was out riding my motorcycle (on an 83 degree day in November!) and made a point of stopping in. The Mich Ultra on tap was deliciously cold.... More

Primary purpose was to eat the insanity wings in under 10 minutes. Well I got the shirt. No one else at the table cared for that sauce. Everything else was great though, deep fried pickles, normal wings, and all-in nachos.

The burgers were great and very cheap on Monday. 3 kids meals and 2 burgers for under 20. The pork burger was the best burger I've eaten in my life. No exageration. I'd give 5 stars except the service was slightly lacking. Nothing bad though just not 5 stars. I will be going back there many times!

The wings and food were pretty tasty, but unfortunately the service was really slow. It was painful to try and get the server to come back after we got our food, especially when you need to pay your bill so you can return to work from lunch...
