Wild Bill’s… I Think I love You…

BUT I WANNA KNOW FOR SURE! Come on chant it with me, WILD BILL’S… Maybe if we do keep chanting, the owner will just appear from out of nowhere with some awesome black spectacles on – yeah probably not though!

My wife and I finally had a chance to get to Wild Bill’s to see what they had to offer after I was hearing that they had some pretty good food. After looking at the menu, It seemed like just another sports bar with the same old menu items that any other sports bar has to offer. I was intrigued by all the sauce options and decided that I must get some wings to see how they fared against the competition and you can see what I had to say by visiting my wings challenge, Flying Buffalo’s?, lets just say that some improvement is needed! 

We like to share our meals and this visit was no different as we decided on a couple things following what our server had to recommend. She suggested that we try the chicken tenders and after she described how they were made to us, we went ahead and ordered them up. Prepared with panko flakes instead of the traditional flower or batter mixture and man were these things awesome! These things were like full chicken breasts, not just little tenders you see elsewhere and they had great flavor and moist instead of boring and dry – probably the best chicken tenders I’ve had.

My wife also wanted to try the Grilled Chicken Ranch Wrap. While it wasn’t terrible, I wish more places would start setting themselves apart from the rest of the field. Try using a homemade ranch dressing, a different flower tortilla instead of the basic, try a different cheese blend or season your chicken differently. Again, I wouldn’t say it was terrible, but it’s just another chicken wrap! We also substituted the fries for the Poker Chips which are whole sliced potatoes that are deep fried (you may have seen this same concept at Buffalo Wild Wings). I like them, but if you like crinkle cut fries, which I do, feel free to just keep the fries! 

I mentioned earlier that they had a wide selection of sauces to choose from, in fact they have 16 sauces to choose from and I would recommend sampling the following; Carolina BBQ and Wild Bill’s Orange Sauce… Delicious! We also tried the Bourbon Teriyaki and Wild Bill’s Buffalo Sauce, but the B.T. was a little lack luster and the Buffalo needed less Red Hot flavoring and more of a unique seasoning added to it as well.

While Wild Bill’s might not be making everything on their menu groovy, I’m sure if The Troggs were in town, they would stop by and I would go back to try some more food on the menu as well. I definitely will be back for some more chicken tenders, man those were good… Don’t forget to check out my take on their wings by visiting my Flying Buffalo’s? wing challenge as well.
