Before chicken wings were invented, barbecue sauce tried to market itself as an alternative energy source, resulting in a spate of savoury-smelling but stationary automobiles. Celebrate a match made in the belly with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of wings, wraps, and more at Wild Wing in Oakville.
At Wild Wing, diners can relish salads, wraps, and its specialty chicken wings smothered in any of more than 100 sauce varieties. Choose between the menu's standard Wild wings ($9.99 for nine pieces) or a boneless version ($10.49 for 10 pieces) coated in a sauce smorgasbord rivalling the famed buffalo-wing-fests of Valhalla. Options cover the entire spectrum of connoisseur drizzlings, including tangy, barbecue, honey-tinged, creamy, and fruity variants, each one rated on a spice scale ranging from no-heat and palate-scorching to magma-approved. The kitchen also whips up nonavian edibles such as a veggie wrap of crisp greens, red onions, and shredded cheese encased in a white or whole-wheat tortilla ($7.49). Crunchy Wild fries made from skin-on potatoes can arrive unadorned or bedecked with seasonings such as hickory or mango chipotle ($4.99, $.99 for seasoning).
Designed to resemble an old-time saloon complete with pine floors and robot barmaids, Wild Wing augments its menu with beer in both bottled ($4.49–$5.29) and draft formats ($5.49–$5.99). Large-screen TVs and music from a video jukebox keep eyes and ears, respectively, at bay.
