    We went a few nights ago. The wing sauces are pretty excellent... the mango habanero was the best, IMO. Nice looking bar, tons of beer on tap, lots of TVs (maybe too many). Beware, they haven't been open long so there's still lots of confusion with the staff so you might wait a little while to get your food and it might be wrong. We didn't have either, but every other table around us had issues.

    Don't order a Guinness! They are $7. Get a bud! Got the boneless wings. Not bad at all.

    Better to pay $7 for a real beer than $4 or $5 for malt flavored water. Ugh.

    We went there last night, the place was packed (even with the snow and roads being horrible). They got 2 of 3 of our orders wrong, but the food was very good. We just chalked it down to not enough staff due to weather and being new as well. We'll go back for sure.

    Main Street Wings in Ashburn Village (in the Ashbrook shopping center by Route 7) is good and you don't have the traffic of the Wegmans shopping center. I'm just sayin'.

    That place is just OK, in my opinion. I went once, will probably never go back.

    I liked BWW much better and it's very likely that I'll return.

    we went tonight- what a nice lookin' place! lotsa tv's, buzz time trivia, table top video games for the kids (for a price)- large bar area- i think this place will do well here.

    we had 3 kinds if wings- spicy garlic for me- excellent flavor, asian zing for the boy- DEEElicious, and mango habenero for the man- WOWZA. all 3 delicious, not too much breading on the boneless wings, the traditional wings were very meaty and saucy.

    we'll definitely go back- UFC with no cover charge, booths are roomy and comfy, and our service was GREAT- ask for Donald! nice experience.

    Excellent! Wasn't that Mango Habanero sauce delicious? I think I'm going to stop on the way home from work and pick up a bottle.

    A very important quesiton: are the wings cooked and then coated with sauce or is the sauce baked-in (or broiled, fried, whatever)?

    For me, wings should go back under the broiler after coating to crisp them up and make the sauch adhere to the wing. Too much sauce dumped on prior to serving makes a sloppy mess and mushy texture. At the wing factory, I order them crispy to avoid the mushy wing.

    Near the Dulles Wegman's/Target. If you walk out of Target and turn immediately to your left and keep walking, you'll eventually walk right into BWW.

    I know the mushy texture you're describing and it makes me retch just thinking about it. These wings were crispy and the sauce appeared to be layered nicely, as in: deep fry, mix with sauce, broil for 2-3 minutes, mix with more sauce.

    I am leaving right now for this place based on that description!

    Next we need a hotness scale... I bounce around "Hot" to "911" at the factory, what's this place got? How many levels?

    If you get "Hot" that'll be right in your comfort zone (which we share), then. Their "Hot" is 3 out of 5 on a 5-point scale with 5 being the hottest. They conveniently have 5 sauces in varying hotnesses.

    We tried this place out a couple of weeks ago. It was crowded and LOUD. The food was average at best. I had to send the fries back - they were cold and tasted like they had been sitting in greese. Service was slow and disorganized - probably due to a new staff and working out the kinks. IMO Main Street Wings is much better (although the atmosphere is not that great).

    Caribbean Jerk wings the best IMO. Nachos and Buffalo Chips with Cheese too! Best wings around.

    Don't forget this place originated in Buffalo. Started as Buffalo Wild Wings and Weck. (BW3). And Buffalo is the birthplace of the Wing. IMO none of the other wing places cut it around here, having been raised near Buffalo.

    Best place for date night with the hubby - we love to play trivia.

    There was one practically on every corner in Columbus Ohio!

    This place is booming, great for sports and drinks.

    We have too little of that here.

    went here today for lunch. 30 cent boneless wings so I ordered five mango habanero and 5 Caribbean jerk. Even though y'all have praised these sauces, I found them too sweet and syrupy to enjoy. Maybe the wings are different. Also, everything was served in tiny paper containers, we asked for plates and got what looked to be the bottoms to carry out containers. Is this the norm here?
