What goes better with Monday Night Football than platters of savory, saucy chicken wings? Nothing – and nobody knows this better than Wing It On! On Monday night, Yelp Elites made their way to Wing It On! in Oakville for an evening of delicious wings, wraps and sides, along with beer samplings from Wolcott-based Shebeen Brewing and sweet treats from Como Bakery.
After tasting a lineup of “BBQ Cheddar, Asian Garlic, and Shogun” (a teriyaki and Asian blend) wings, Paul P realized “These are high quality, meaty wings that can hang with the best of the best in the state. The reason? Everything is made fresh in-house.” Plus, “The fact that there were roughly 8-10 different flavors to sample was very impressive.” Eric H “really enjoyed their Buffalo mac and cheese which had a well balanced richness and creaminess that complimented the thick chunks of blue cheese perfectly.”
Beyond trays of fried pickles, fried jalapenos, and wraps galore, Madeleine L found that her top dish "of the night was the hamburger wrap” stuffed with angus beef, bacon, fried peppers, melted cheese and more. Dan R was also impressed that “Wolcott's popular Shebeen Brewery was there with samples of their brews.” Beyond the kona-bacon stout, Madeleine L writes, “My favorite was the pineapple, which was just a nice crisp beer with a tinge of fruity flavor. The cannoli beer was also really delicious, and served with powdered sugar and chocolate!” Not your average brew!
To end on a sweet note, Eric A writes, “let us not forget the folks from Como Bakery, who clearly love what they do, and it sure does taste like it. The olive focaccia was rich with that thin crispy outer crust, and the pie blended tart apple with the sugar and cinnamon, crowned with a very nice piecrust.”
