Chicken wings are the favored snack of the sports fan, narrowly beating out harder-to-procure parrot wings and more heartbreaking butterfly wings. Feast on the wings of champions with today's Groupon to WOW Cafe & Wingery in Manassas: for $10, you get $25 worth of wings, beer, burgers, and Cajun fare.
Stop by the wingery to watch the NFL playoffs on one of WOW's flat-screen TVs, and order from the extensive menu. WOW Cafe & Wingery offers 17 sauces to go with the tender wing feast, including three increasingly hot versions of its buffalo sauce, a creamy peanut Thai sauce, a spicy Jamaican jerk, Texas mesquite barbecue, spicy Cajun, teriyaki, and coconut curry. Get an eight-piece for yourself ($7.99) or share the 3-lb. wing sampler, with your choice of up to five sauces, with friends ($23.99).
Unlike the weighty turkey legs popularized by Renaissance faires, chicken wings won't cause arm fatigue and can be eaten without wearing a ridiculous snood. The many smaller bones, as opposed to one large bone, offer eaters more opportunity to pick relatively more meat off of the bone, in addition to providing a greater range of movement to reach for a beer or offer ritual high fives. In addition to tantalizing wings, WOW serves up Cajun delights, kids' items, rice bowls, chopped salads, and more. Warm up with the traditional red beans and rice entree with Texas toast ($9.50) or indulge in a half order of golden-fried shrimp ($7.99). Stimulate you salivary glands with a juicy Bayou burger topped with bleu cheese ($9) or a garden-fresh quesadilla with mushrooms, onions, peppers, and tomatoes ($7.99).
Though Yelpers offer mixed reviews, WOW Cafe & Wingery's recent change in management has polished the service shiny:
