    Try their buffalo wing grillers, the nachos (but switch out the chips for tater tots), all the burgers, and OMG, if you get a hot dog have them fry it! (BTW, none of this is good for you!)

    3 dollar strong island iced teas are totes worth stoppin in for. The wings are a bit pricier but truly are the best wings in town.

    One of the best cheese steak sandwiches I've had outside of Philly. Ask for the original with provolone AND cheese whiz for an authentic experience.

    33¢ tacos Tuesdays from 7-10pm. Discounted wings weekdays 4-7 pm. Get here at 6:45, spread out your order and try them both!

    If you like your wings hot ask order the grilled wings and ask to have the kitchen grill up some jalapeños with them.

    Mild grilled wings, tater tots, and the Father Donkey brew, made by Empyrean especially for the Watering Hole.

    The wings, which are fried then grilled, are excellent. Highly recommend them. The staff was also very friendly

    Who cares if the upgrade makes it look like Coyote Ugly, the wings are still awesome. Stop complaining.

    If you can stand the stench of unwashed hipsters, the grilled wings and dollar beers might be worth it

    Time Travelers: Make sure and visit a few months ago. The service is terrible now. I've been waiting an hour for an order of wings. All that dirt made them move faster.
