This week, we headed out to the wild west to the famed restaurant that is Hangar Pub and Grill aka the original Wings Over (Amherst). The Hangar is an addition to the typical Wings Over takeout/delivery store. As you step inside, it seemingly appears to be your typical UMass restaurant/bar with college kids coming in and out on the regular. With almost 30 stores nationally, we had to see what the hype was all about.
With over 20 flavors to choose from and both traditional wings and boneless tenders (i.e. faux wings), there’s surely something here for even the pickiest of eaters. Wings Over uniquely names their different wing portions as different types of aircraft and since we are hardcore puddle jumper enthusiasts, we ordered the “Puddle Jumper” in Cajun BBQ and Buffalo (Level 3 – “Red Alert”) with a side of onion rings.
Being a joint that is dedicated to chicken wings, the bar was set high and the wings did not disappoint. Overall, these guys make a good all-around wing. Although, we can’t claim that these are the best wings we’ve ever had, we could not find any weaknesses. The wing is crispy, the sauce is flavorful, and the chicken is fresh – delicious.
If you’re looking for a solid, dependable wing, look no further. Our only disclaimer is that we are reviewing based on the eat-in location and are not reviewing the takeout/delivery service.
