Pluckers Wing Bar

I recently had a craving for some spicy food and decided to go out for wings.  I usually only have a craving for wings about twice a year, so I usually go to wing joints that are familiar to me.  This time, I decided to try Pluckers Wing Bar in Allen, Tx.  This wing joint is located at The Village at Allen shopping center.  I had never been here before, but I know a couple of people that told me that this place was the best place to get wings in the entire Metroplex.
TVs everywhere
The first thing I noticed when I walked in was that they had about a million TVs on the wall.  The next thing I noticed was that there were a lot of families having dinner here.  It is definitely a family friendly environment and also one that would be a fun place to watch a game during football season.  Pluckers has specials where kids eat free on Tuesdays and teachers get free appetizers on Fridays.    

They have a lot more on the menu than just wings, but I was here for wing and liked the fact that they had about twenty different wing sauces to choose from.  Since we had not been here before, the waitress also brought out a plate with samples of their most popular sauces.  While we were checking out the menu, the waitress gave us a free order of fried pickles since it was our first visit to Pluckers.  Unlike most fried pickles, they were fried as spears.  The batter was great and I liked them much better than the typical fried pickle slices.

For my meal I ordered the Monster Boneless Wing Basket because I was tired on this night and regular wings seemed like too much work (feel free to substitute the word tired for lazy in this sentence).  I had my boneless wings tossed in the spicy Mandarin Sauce.  They also give you the option of having your fries "sauced" and I had my fries tossed in the garlic Parmesan rub.  The order was huge and came with eight very large boneless wings.  The spicy Mandarin sauce was very spicy with a little bit of a sweet aftertaste as well.  The garlic Parmesan waffle fries were tasty as well.  I am not usually a fan of waffle fries, but these were very flavorful.

Overall I enjoyed my visit to Pluckers Wing Bar.  The food was much better than your average wing bar.   The service was great as well and the entire staff was very friendly.  Since this place is just a short drive from my house, I can see myself going back here next time I get the craving for some wings or boneless wings.
