Wingstop showcases top quality flavors for all palates

Wingstop, located on Virginia Beach Blvd, roughly 10 minutes from the school, is known for its wings and French fry combo, as well as its quick and easy pickup. And, as the name states, their specialty is WINGS!

This quick stop is a chain restaurant with six locations in Virginia Beach and a few more in Norfolk, but one craving all things wings can also find locations along the East Coast as well as some on the West. The hours of operation are 11 a.m. – 12 a.m., from Monday to Sunday, and are open all hours of the day except for breakfast.

Some of the most popular wing flavors, according to students, include lemon pepper, original hot, and hickory smoked BBQ. Their wings also come with sides of fries which come in original, Cajun, cheese, Louisiana voodoo, and buffalo ranch. The flexibility of the menu allows customers to mix and match all of their favorite items or maybe try something new.

Juniors Maw Palmerton and Blake Heselius decision to try out the restaurant left them with mixed reviews. Both ordered the original hot, lemon pepper, hickory smoked BBQ, spicy Korean Q, and the original fries.

According to the pair, the wings added a stylish aspect to the food presentation, as they looked like wings that would be seen in a food magazine. The fries were by far the highest-rated item with the spicy Korean Q that had a BBQ and tangy flavor following close behind. And, for extra zest, a delicious, top-of-the line ranch dressing was added to the side.

Some other more popular menu items include Wingstop’s  chicken sandwiches and tenders. These delights come in a combo just like the wings with a side of fries and a fountain drink. The combo deals seem to be when patrons feel they are getting the most ‘bang for your buck’. The boneless meal deal is $16.99 and comes with twenty boneless wings with the choice of four flavors, a large fry, and two dips. The large ten-piece wing combo comes with ten boneless or classic wings with up to two flavors, regular fries or veggie sticks, one dip, and a fountain drink.

Overall, the quick and easy Wingstop order ahead pick-up process made it a fast and efficient process. However, for anyone looking to sit and eat, there is not much space, leaving only enough room for one to wait if an order is placed inside the restaurant.

The customer service was excellent and the workers seemed knowledgeable about when asked about items on the menu and were helpful as they assisted customers pick out their assortment of wings.

Palmerton and Heselius both recommend Wingstop though, as they found the experience an easy choice for anyone who wants terrific tasting wings quickly and efficiently.
