Chicken Wings (2012)
1488 Constitution Blvd., Salinas
The ultimate question of wings: Bone-in or boneless? With Wing Stop, there’s no need to argue the finer points of why boneless wings are for neanderthals – just shut up and order, because at Wing Stop, you can get what you (and they) want. Bone-in, boneless or even boneless strips, splashed with any of nine sauces. The sides are adeptly handled, with fresh cut fries and homemade potato salad on the spud side, to coleslaw and crispy veggie sticks on the crunchy/healthy side. Throw some of the hot cheese sauce in for the fries, a nice tangy bleu cheese dip for the veggies, and your wing experience takes flight.
