Back in October, I told you that Gleason's bar on Broadway and 33rd street features 25 cent wings on Sundays and Mondays. What a deal! I can truly say I was impressed with the quality and abundance of these wings.
Honey Mustard Wings - I got to the bar a bit late, finding Dan and his friend Mo already buffalo-winged-out. They seemed to really enjoy the wings and commented on their hefty size, "they weren't puny." Dan took one for the team, as we ordered another plate of 10 wings, getting the honey mustard for a change.
I loved them! The sauce was thick, tangy and there was just enough meat on the bones. It annoys me when wings are all skin and no meat but these weren't like that at all. They came with a side of creamy blue cheese dressing and a small helping of fresh carrots and celery. I would've liked to see more of these to cleanse the palate, but it wasn't a deal breaker.
Service and Cost:
The staff at Gleason's was great - attentive, friendly and quick. We got our wing order about 10 minutes after we placed it, and when we were done, they were speedy with the check and change. Oh and they also give you plenty of wet naps to clean those messy fingers!
In terms of costs, 25 cent wings are hard to beat. An order of 10 was a mere $2.50 so watch out, it's easy to overdose. YUM!
