Breaking down wings from Buffalo Wings and Rings

Greetings. Do you love wings? Yes? Great. Everyone does. I’m glad we’re all on the same page here.

I had a request, however, to review some wings that were not so loved. Well, they were boneless wings, so I was requested to review some boneless chicken bites covered in sauce.

Shoutout to my guys Ryan Green and Nick Kuzas for requesting these. I don’t think I’ve ever been asked to review something because it was bad. It usually goes the other way. I like it, though.

But Ryan and Nick are NOT fans of the boneless wings at Buffalo Wings and Rings. Because I hadn’t had any wings, or rings, from this establishment previously, I opted to get five boneless and five traditional.

So, is hating these boneless wings justifiable?

For those who prefer reading rather than watching, here is my written review:

I’ll start with the requested subject, the boneless. I went with a classic buffalo and selected “hot” for my heat level. As classic as it comes, and my personal favorite heat level.

Ryan, Nick …

You were right. These boneless wings were pretty weak. The breading, which I believe you guys mentioned specifically as the wings’ downfall, is in fact their downfall. It hardly existed. It was like it dissolved as soon as it came in contact with a drop of buffalo sauce.

The potential for a good boneless piece of chicken is there. The quality of the chicken was fine. The meat wasn’t dry or gross. It was actually fairly tender. But the breading was essentially gone. It was so soggy that it pretty much fused to the meat.

I had to drive about 15 minutes prior to eating them, but in all my posts where I’ve eaten breaded chicken (like 100), I haven’t had that happen. It always at least somewhat holds up and I always keep the delay in mind anyways when eating/rating, because I’m a fair person. There was no salvaging this, though. I just think their breading is too thin to begin with.

The sauce was tasty, but that and the decent chicken quality wasn’t enough to save the boneless wings. 3.8.

For the bone-in wings, I selected ghost pepper ranch as my sauce. I hadn’t seen ghost pepper ranch wing sauce before and loved the sound of it. The wings were enjoyable. The sauce was creamy and had a nice, stern heat and the wings were crispy. I was a fan — 7.6.

The rings, the other half of the namesake, were the strongest food item here. They were ideally crispy and flavorful. Can not go wrong there. I gave those an 8.1.

Thanks for reading, thanks for watching, and thank YOU, Nick and Ryan, for requesting. Take care and goodbye.
