I don’t know who Joe is, but he sent me to his restaurant in search of delicious wings and to play Stump trivia. We found trivia, but did we find delicious chicken wings?
The four different wing options at Joe Sent Me on Main St. in Waltham are BBQ, Teriyaki, Buffalo, and the hot and spicy Diablo. Went with the BBQ flavor at the suggestion of the perky waitress, and they came served with a side of carrots and celery and blue cheese dressing.
Flavor: The wings are fried and smothered in a sweet, tangy BBQ sauce that had hints of smoke and vinegar in it. For the most part, they were moist and tender, however we had one or two wings that were a bit more dry than we’d like. Overall, the wings were flavorful and the sauce was lip smackin’ delicious.
Size/Looks: For the most part, all the wings were uniform in size save for one or two smaller ones, which turned out to be more dry than the others. The wings were very appealing to look at, as the sticky, dark BBQ glaze shown like candy in the dim light.
Value: At $7.95 for 10, and $14.95 for a belly-busting 25, these wings are an excellent value. The service was also quite good, as we always had full beers and a clean table.
Overall: These wings represented a good value, flavored with a nice, tangy BBQ sauce. While above average, they were not out of this world and could have been more consistently moist than they were.
Final Score: 7/10
