Agree, QSL was better when it was just one location in Sharon. We'd go over at least once a month when I went to Grove City.

It is still good as far as chain wing places go but not like it was.

Anyone a fan of the sauce (that is usually named something different at every bar) that entails basically hot, mild, B&G, Barbecue, and whatever other sauces just all mixed together?

It depends on the restaurant/bar. Some have a great mixture that works well. A local bar in Johnstown -- The Hometown Bar and Grill -- has the "Hometown Special" sauce, which basically is BBQ, Medium and Cajun, and it's great. QS&L has Louisiana Lickers, which is essentially along these lines, and is very good, too. There are some places, though, that just don't do the right amounts of the different sauces, and they're not that good.

Tulune's also has a similar sauce, but I can't think of the name of it. If you describe it they'll definitely know what you're asking for. I usually forget that they have it until somebody else orders it.

IMO, the wings at QS&L used to be much better before they expanded into a chain restaurant. Back when I was in high school, we often drove up to Sharon (I'm from Slippery Rock) after high school on Fridays in order to get some wings. I also have family over in Youngstown, and on the way back from visiting them we would often detour to Sharon to get some buckets of wings. That was before QS&L expanded to any other towns and they were still making all of their sauces right there in the restaurant. I can remember seeing the industrial-size tubs of Tabasco and other ingredients they were bringing in to make the wing sauces. Today, I'm pretty sure that the sauces for all of the restaurants are made and bottled in some central factory. They just aren't the same.


There's no doubt that QS&L bottles off-site now, especially with the sauce now showing up at places like Giant Eagle. I do remember their sauce being different, like it was less salty and maybe even more spicy. Even for them bottling the sauces off-site, it's still better than most of the sauces sitting on the shelf of your local store.

I can't think of the last time I had a good batch of Hooters' wings. Now that I think of it, I don't think I've been there in at least a year and it wasn't even the one in Monroeville. Had it not been an out-of-town trip with other co-workers, I probably wouldn't have went. The sauce is ok (much better than the shelved version you find at giant eagle or wallyworld), but it seems like the last few times I've been there the food has been undercooked and the wings themselves were like biting into a big pile of breading. Besides, doesn't anybody listen to Chris Rock?

Meh. Disappointing. I give them credit for making their own, distinct, but that's about it . Had the Buzzalo, which were like 'normal' buffalo style, and the Molotov, which was pineapple based with ghost chilis. The wings themselves were ok, but both sauces seriously lacked body, to the point they were practically broken. Really watery. Shame, really. You can feel the ghosts in the Molotovs, not heart-stoppingly so, but the consistency just ruined it. The bacon cheddar burger was good, though. Cute place. Nice, albeit small, beer fridge. They had a bb of 75 minute and few rarer stouts.

I personally like dino's slicker (bbq, hot, garlic) better than any wing at sharkys. Even tho my gf likes the sweet and hot at sharkys.

Yep, that's my GF's favorite. On tuesday I got 5 parm garlic and 5 of the lewis. Last time I had super lewis and they were good but too hot, so I stepped it down a notch and these were pretty good.

hooters' wings are exceptional. totally agree. it's probably related to all the butter they put in their sauce.

my grill is out of commission, but when i'm back up and running, i'm making tikka masala wings. combine greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice and a bunch of indian spices; let it marinate over night and grill away. i've done this with the broiler in my oven and chunks of chicken (not wings). unbelievable.

Hooters and Pizza Hut wings both suck. I can't belive people actually eat them.

Anyone who eats Pizza Hut wings should have their wing card revoked.
