Review: A friend recently told me about a new place in West Lafayette called Wings Etc. He raved about how good the wings were and how often he’d been there for lunch since it opened. Today we were deciding what to have for lunch and wings sounded good, so we headed over to Wings Etc. to try them out. They are located way west on US 52, just past Baja Peninsula in a newish strip mall.
We arrived and the parking lot was pretty full and I was worried that it might be too busy since the Colts game was about to start, but there seemed to be plenty of tables. The inside has a regular seating area and a bar area. Neither were huge, but ample. Large flat screen TVs were hung along every wall with sports playing on each one. It was very typical of any sports bar. We were seated and after a few minutes a waitress arrived to take our drink order. We were all starving so we went ahead and placed our orders at this time.
And then we waited. And waited. And waited. I was about to start chewing on the table when, just over thirty minutes after our arrival, our food came out. I understand it takes time to make food, but I think thirty minutes is excessive in any restaurant. I was getting cranky, the kids were whining, and even my husband was getting annoyed. It was a long wait.
As for the food, it was fine. The menu consists of things like wings and ribs, but also burgers, wraps and salads. I ordered a BBQ chicken wrap. I was starving, so I may have eaten it so fast I couldn’t tell, but it was really pretty good. My husband reports that the wings really were quite good, better than BW3 wings. The kids seemed happy with their meal. So while the service was extremely slow, the food was acceptable in a pub food kind of way. I’m hopeful that the slow service was a fluke and I’m definitely willing to give it another shot. I’ll just make sure I’m not starving before I head over.
Kid friendly: Yes
