Spicy food is a great way to separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, and the girls from the boys if they get too rowdy at co-ed canoe camp. Indulge your adventurous appetite with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of wings, sandwiches, fries, and more at The Wing Co. in the Westwood Shopping Center.
To accommodate Fayetteville's sizeable population of Casual-Americans, The Wing Co. keeps it simple with a menu of mouth-moisture-making wings, all of which are cooked without heat lamps. Instead, the heat comes from several delicious sauces. The tangy teriyaki starts your oral thermometer at the low end, while the Backdraft will treat your tongue to the red-hot ride of a space shuttle re-entering earth's atmosphere. A 20-piece platter of Kickin' Chickin' Wings ($13.99) gives you a chance to sample up to two flavors, though you may want to keep a "fire hydrant" of soda ($2.99 for two liters) or tea ($3.99 for a gallon) close at hand in case your fillings start to melt. Equally sinus-singeing is a side of fresh-cut firehouse fries ($1.99/$2.69). Frankendiners, however, can avoid fire completely with a chicken salad ($5.99), a cheeseburger wrap ($4.99), or The Chix-On-Stix, which dredges a fresh chicken breast tender through The Wing Co.'s special seasoning, then slathers on your favorite sauces ($7.99 for seven pieces). A sparse, plainclothes décor—hardhats and firefighter helmets double as lampshades—keeps your senses tuned in to the tasty tenders before you. Gift a few Groupons to friends and see who can get their ears to make a steam-whistle sound first with a round of wings at The Wing Co.
The Wing Co.
Customers won't find any heat lamps within The Wing Co.'s kitchen, but that doesn't mean their made-to-order wings aren't hot. Instead, the increased temperatures come from nine sauces, which run the gamut from sweet chili to Cajun to teriyaki. However, the cooks aren’t content to just spread sauce on wings. Upon customer request, they can also splash the tasty liquids over salads, riblets, and sandwiches—including their signature wing burger.
Matching the wings’ heat is the dining room's firefighter-themed decor. Hardhats and helmets double as lampshades, while firefighter boots, tanks, and clothing hang from the walls, in case of an emergency costume party.
