Location: Buffalo Wild Wings (Clark Rd.)
Flavors: Mango Habanero, Caribbean Jerk & Spicy Curry
Dipping Agent: Blue Cheese
Well my wife said after she saw my lunch post she almost got wings today at Buffalo Wild Wings. That put the trigger in my brain and I had to have some, especially after the last batch…
B-Dubs always gets a bad rap amongst amateur wing “experts” primarily because it’s a chain. I get it. But at the same time I never turn down a trip.
I have no shame in saying I love their sauces. No matter what, I always get their Mango Habanero and the others I cycle between: Spicy Garlic, Asian Zing & Caribbean Jerk. Sometimes I venture into other territory but that’s my comfort zone.
Mango Habanero: Quite sweet with a great heat. If I eat six of these quick I have to take a little break and let the fire in my mouth calm down. The mango flavor is solid though a little diluted by what is probably corn syrup, but dammit it’s addicting.
Spicy Garlic: Great garlic presence, not much heat, always well coated on the bird.
Caribbean Jerk: Love. It’s got an earthy, paprika flavor with a smoky hint. The heat is very present but extremely bearable.
There is room for improvement though. There’s a serious lack in consistency when it comes to size. Here’s a pick of my littlest guy tonight. I was very happy to only have one little nubby one, I’m used to about 15-20% of the basket being these guys here.
Overall they could all be meatier but they are cooked great, super crispy with juicy innards.
