Wing Stop

Location: 12 E. Harrison St., Chicago, IL 60605
WingStop on Urbanspoon

A Quick Word:
Wings are found on many street corners of Chicago.  Finding the perfect wing is tough; sometimes you find a great wing with a terrible sauce, or vice versa.  The chain restaurant Wing Stop has found the perfect medium... good wings and good sauce.  Not the best in either category, but definitely above average in both.  The wings themselves are excellent.  Huge, juicy, crispy.  Three adjectives that all wing joints want to be described by.  The new Chili Lime sauce is wonderful because it packs enough heat to make you sweat, yet has a pleasant citrus flavor.  I would easily rate these wings in the 4-mile range, but I encountered an unpleasant cashier that was both unfriendly and not accommodating.  For that reason I decided to drop it to 3.5 miles.  The wings are better than that... but the service needs to improve a little.

What We Ate:

Chili Lime Wings

This limited time sauce was what drew me in and I knew I had to give it a try.  I had an order of regular bone-in wings covered in their newest creation, the Chili Lime sauce.  The name is self explanatory, chilies and lime, but it packs a bigger punch that you think.  The wings by themselves are excellent.  They are huge, juicy, and cooked to perfection with a nice fried crisp on the outside.  They sauce them immediately after finishing and even when ordering take out, they still kept that crispness when we got home.  The flavor is primarily lime, but you constantly get bursts of heat that I really enjoyed.  Great wings and hopefully you can give these a try before they are gone.

The DOs/DON'Ts:
- Chili Lime wings... Don't miss out!  Limited time offer!

- I would probably avoid the South Loop location.  Try to find another more friendly one.  The Lincoln Park location is great and amazing for take out!

How far would I walk for this food?
