Like playing volleyball or saluting a superior officer, eating is much more enjoyable when you're not holding a fork. Embrace the power of phalanges with today's Groupon: for $7, you get 20 wings at Wing Ranch Gwinnett in Lawrenceville (a $14.99 value).
Wing Ranch Gwinnett slathers its platters and buckets of wings with a kaleidoscopic palette of 20 sauces that span the flavor spectrum. Chefs can coat freshly cooked Wright Brothers prototypes in glazes of smoky barbecue, savory garlic parmesan, or sweet red-chili sauce. Plates also spill over with carrots and celery as well as two servings of either blue cheese or ranch for dipping. Orders may be split into two rival factions of wings, each with its own sauce and interpretation of The Giver. Guests can sidle up to one of the padded booths or wooden tables and take in the sights of one of the flat-screen televisions that bedeck the walls. Team-trivia nights on Thursdays and Saturdays quiz visitors' knowledge of avian physiology at no additional cost, and live music performances grace Wing Ranch's dining room on Friday nights all summer long.
Wing Ranch, Gwinnett
Wing Ranch, Gwinnett leaves no mystery when it comes to its mission: to serve the best chicken wings around, period. To do this, the kitchen staff cooks hearty chicken wings and then coats them in a choice of more than 20 sauces, including cajun, honey barbecue, Jamaican jerk, and nuclear waste, the latter of which is smokin' hot. Chicken also arrives at tables in the form of grilled or fried strips, nuggets, sandwiches, and wraps. Fish, shrimp, and burgers round out the menu.
