Going out for wings is a favourite activity for thousands of people in the greater Toronto area. There are many fine establishments
with great wings out there tailored specifically to fill the need for wings. But what makes one wing bar or restaurant better than another? Why choose one reputable establishment over their competition? The answer shouldn't come as a surprise to you, or anyone else. As with most things in the food service industry, it all boils down to flavours, atmosphere, and service. After all, isn't that what most of the hungry people in this city are looking for in the first place?
Of course, the first stop most hungry wing eaters make is the spice station. Chicken wing heat ranges from no sauce or spice at all the way to up to the face scorching 7,100,000 SHU – or Scoville Heat Units - sauce that currently holds the world's record for hottest sauce. If spicy isn't your thing, don't worry. These days you can find wings like Honey Garlic, Barbecue, Caribbean Jerk, Hot Sweet Asian, Chili Lime, Garlic Parm, Cajun or even an impressive Honey BBQ. That's not to mention the side dipping sauces that come with wings at select restaurants! From sour cream and blue cheese, to a Famous Garlic Dill Sauce that won't leave you disappointed!
Homey Atmosphere? A Must!
Obviously when you choose to spend your hard-earned money on a delicious snack like wings, you don't want to do it in a poorly lit dirty bar that has menus with pages glued together by age-old grease. Ask around. Speak to your friends and family to find out where they like to eat. More often than not they'll recommend a place near and dear
to their hearts. For anyone I know, that means hanging out at a place where I can relax and watch the game comfortably while enjoying wings and a drink or two! We like to feel like we're at a second home!
Top Notch Service
Superior restaurant service is the most important aspect in attaining a strong returning customer base. Let's face it. No matter how good your wings are, if they take an hour and a half to get to your table and there are no other customers in sight, you're probably not going to head back any time soon. So how do you judge service? It's a bit subjective, really. What we can all agree on is that the meal should be well-timed and freshly made with the finest ingredients available, the staff should be polite and courteous, and any problems or situations should be dealt with in a timely manner. No one should feel rushed, but no one should be waiting around for the bill, either. As long as I'm comfortable and my wings are hot and fresh, I'm happy!
Luckily, you're in Toronto and you're options for chicken wings
are virtually limitless. Whether you're looking for a sauce that will melt your tongue to the roof of your mouth, or something milder accompanied by a delicious Garlic Dill Sauce, you're sure to find a place with a great atmosphere and service that will keep you coming back.
