Wings, Rings & Beer Tubes

big-beerFriday night the wife, one of the twins (Hayley) and myself decided to try out a restaurant/bar we hadn’t been to in a long time – Buffalo Wings & Rings.  Not to be confused with BW3’s (sorry, that’s Buffalo Wild Wings these days), BW&R have a similar menu and sports bar vibe but in my opinion – better food & prices.  Don’t get me wrong, I love BW3’s sauces but think their wings are tiny.  Plus, I prefer breaded.  Anyone who knows me knows that I practically get my mail delivered at B.C. Rooster’s & am no stranger to Hooter’s either, but consider myself a wing aficionado. I’ll try anywhere at least once!

On the wing front I gotta say, BW&R’s flappers are just ok.  They’re breaded but only lightly (which can be a good thing depending on how health conscious you are) but the sauces were thin and not quite as tasty as some of their competitors.  They did excel at the gyro, kettle chips and cheddar fries that the rest of my table consumed but there was one other item that really turned the tables in their favor.

What BW&R had going for them the most this fine evening was an awesome device called the Beer Tube.  It holds 100 oz. of the Nectar of the Gods, which as it turns out was an adequate amount for my wife (who was driving) and myself (who was not, so guess who drank 80% of it!?).  That’s me in the blurry phone pic at the scene of the crime.  And no, we hadn’t started yet – the phone just takes crappy pics, mmk?

Look at the tube tho, will ya’?  Tis’ a thing of beauty to behold.  Reminds me of the yards of beer I’ve consumed in pubs (such as this fine establishment in Colorado Springs) in my youth.  With a commercial grade tap at the bottom, it was easy to pour and with the height of this bad boy – was even easier to find my table from any restroom trips! But like a yard of ale, you do run the risk of your beverage getting to room temperature before you finish it, so I’d recommend one of these for a small group.  It was $10 bucks to fill but you only had a single choice of brew – Coors Light.  Ah well, it could be worse.

Anyhow, not sure if these babies are featured in every Buffalo Wings & Rings but I did think it added to the experience. Overall, a recommended family outting.

Two thumbs, and one empty glass – up!
