What’s better than going to a restaurant with a great atmosphere, engaging staff and delicious food? Nothing, especially when you know the eatery can continue that energy week by week. At 98th Street’s Wings Gone Wild, they’ve continued to impress me with their All-American-themed establishment.

Focusing on wings—hence the name—the eatery’s quality of the dark meat dish holds itself as one of the city’s best spots to eat. With wings that oversize their competitors, WGW guarantees you’re going to receive a high-quality product. Some of my favorite wings dishes, like the lemon pepper or the Heatseeker are repeatedly fried and sauced to magnificence.

Other than wings, they feature a pretty American menu. If you’re feeling like BBQ, they have ribs ($8.50). Or if you’ve got a hankering for a juicy burger, the steak burger is always topped ($8.50). Regardless of what you choose, your hunger will be satisfied. If you want my recommendation, I say get the Habanero XXX. Challenge yourself to something spicy.

Wings Gone Wild sets your standard American sports bar ambiance. The walls are wood covered by steel paneling, and their bar features local and domestic taps. But it’s the cool, nostalgic style that makes me come back. It’s the kind of place where you and your friends can head over on a Sunday to watch the big game, drink some beer and eat some apps. It’s that feeling that has had me back as a customer; but more importantly, it’s local. Forget the big corporate sports bars in town, this is your new haven.
