This restaurant offers a high-energy environment. One wall is covered by a bar and its option display. The other walls include large windows, and/or posters and banners. There are multiple televisions which display sporting events or funny or adventurous videos. This environment also includes medium volume music and the sounds of conversation. The room is not too loud, but is not the ideal location for a quiet or peaceful retreat. However, if you are simply looking for a delicious meal, this establishment should definitely be taken into consideration.
When I entered the building, the service was quick to open a table. They also came to offer beverages, and take our meal order quite quickly. Throughout the meal, the service continued to keep this quick pace in making the food. After the food was brought, our waitress continued to refill drinks, check on our status and satisfaction, and deliver bills fairly frequently.
The first dish that I chose to order were the Cougar Gold Fries. These were absolutely scrumptious. This dish is house-cut fries covered in Cougar Gold cheese, and sprinkled in rosemary served with a chipotle crimson ketchup. I found that the fries were cooked nicely and the amounts of toppings were perfect. I personally liked the crimson ketchup, but it may not be what other people enjoy.
I went to this restaurant in a small group, which allowed me to order and share several of the sauces offered for the wings. While both traditional chicken wings and boneless chicken tenders are offered, I only tried the boneless tenders. These tenders are very large, nine tenders weigh over one pound. I tried these with five different types of sauces: teriyaki, maple bacon bourbon, parmesan garlic, tequila lime, and #2 clucking buffalo. Also, I tried one meat rub: smokey sweet.
My favorite flavor of these wings was the teriyaki sauce. While many teriyaki sauces are too sweet in my opinion, I found this one to be perfect. The chicken was not at all dry. I would rate this dish a 9/10 and quite enjoyed it.
I also enjoyed the buffalo sauce. On the menu it was indicated to have a medium spice, which I found to be very true. But this level of spice fit my taste in something that had a kick, but would not make my mouth feel like it was on fire. The taste of this sauce is enhanced when matched with ranch dressing. The tender alone deserves a rating of 8/10, but with the dressing, is bumped to a 9/10.
Following these two sauces, my next favorite type of tender was the smokey sweet dry rub. Even without the sauces adding moisture like the other types of chicken, this tender was just as moist. While the title describes the taste of this tender very well, neither of these flavors were too strong and I found them to be perfectly in balance. This rub earned a rating of 8/10.
Another one of these amazing sauces was the parmesan garlic sauce. This was a very creamy sauce and thicker than the other sauces. The cheese aspect tasted very nice and I quite enjoyed it. However, it tasted slightly too strongly of garlic. It was not so strong that it was not enjoyable, in fact I did quite like it. However, I wished that it had been toned down ever so slightly. Even with the unbalanced state of these flavors, the sauce and tender still rated as a 7/10.
The maple bacon bourbon was the fourth sauce that I tried. The maple was the strongest flavor in the group, although it was not too strong. The bourbon and bacon were equally as strong in the background. I had hoped for a stronger taste of bacon than was present. Despite that, this was still a good sauce and I would rate it a 6/10.
The final sauce, my least favorite, was the tequila lime. I did not enjoy this sauce very much. I found it to be somewhat bland at first than at the very end, a strong taste of the lime. This sauce was not awful, but I was not a fan and would not recommend choosing this sauce. I only gave this 3/10 for a rating.
In general, I found this restaurant to be very enjoyable. The food was delicious in most areas. The service was very friendly and they did their jobs very well. I would give this restaurant four stars out of five and hope to go again soon. I would also recommend it to many people and it made for an enjoyable evening.
