Buffalo Wild Wings
1077 N. Emerson
Greenwood, IN 46143
Back in the day, I used to eat a ton of wings. Then I ate 42 atomic wings in a competition with my best friend and spent the night in the ER with a hole burned in my stomach lining. Now, I don’t eat them that much. But I had a craving last week and since I haven’t been to a Buffalo Wild Wings since moving back to Indiana three years ago, I thought I’d give them a try.
What I Got: Eight Boneless Wings and a Diet Pepsi.
I know, I know, why the diet with what is basically a calorie-bomb? I happen to like Diet Pepsi and this was lunch so beer wasn’t an option. I ordered four wings with Spicy Garlic sauce and four wings (nuggets really) with “Hot” sauce. The server told me that they require an order of at least 12 wings to split the sauce. WTF? Furthermore, she told me that “Everyone complains about that.” Good reason to ditch that policy. The wings were good, well-cooked and the Spicy Garlic really is a great sauce. A good amount of heat with a deeper level of flavor from the garlic, so very nice. The accompanying ranch dressing was fine, sort of gloppy and not a ton of herbaceous flavor but okay. I had to ask a couple of times for my celery but whatever.
Would I Buy It Again? Not a chance in hell. Here’s why: $12.00 with tip. I was pissed and hungry when I left this place. Buffalo Wild Wings has completely gone off the rails. The prices are crazy, the menu is a mish-mash of crap that makes no sense whatsoever and once I walked in and smelled the familiar odor of stale beer and other “stuff,” I recalled why I haven’t been to one in three years.
Wings Etc. has a much better wing, good sauce, a truly great chicken breast sandwich and is far more reasonable.
