Wing Stop, Katipunan Regis Center

I expected too much from Wing Stop, based on its reviews. 3.5-5? Really? I could rate this place a 2 if not for the good ambiance maybe a 2.5. I could get a lot of better wings at a better price from my friends restaurant Burger Company Ph or at my favorite Sunrise buckets. You’d think that a place that only specializes in wings would have great wings right? I mean thats the only thing they serve plus some sides. So its the thing that they are expected to perfect, not to mess up.

When we went here they had 8 people in the kitchen area and 4 people at the counter.  So I was expecting really quick service, but it still took them 20 mins to cook our food and there were only 3 tables filled. The staff though were friendly so thats a plus and another plus for the nice use of space. Since they could accommodate a lot of people.

Texas style fries, Side

So back to the food. Of course I was expecting beautiful and delicious wings. They did look good, but the flavors were just too salty for me. We got the Louisiana Rub, Garlic Parmesan and the Lemon Pepper. Chicken wings are priced at 5pcs 235php, 7pcs 325php for 2 flavors, 11pcs at 495 for 2 flavors as well and 20pcs at 875 for 2 flavors. I’m sorry but after eating at sunrise buckets where it is a lot cheaper to eat. I just have to compare the size of their wings and the flavoring. The flavor here was too salty, the lemon pepper was so oily. I got the flavor on top of the chicken cooked beautifully but very bland inside.

We also got the fries for the side the Texas style flavor. I was also expecting good fries, instead I needed more flavor and just opted to use ketchup. I also found it funny that they have ice by the counter but they don’t have water by the counter? So If you get Ice you’d give a confused look like… “Where’s the water?” This place still has a lot of room to improve. It already does have good ratings, so I guess people seem to like it. There’s no competition for good wings around   Katipunan so all they have to do now is improve their wings and service.

Sunrise Buckets, Rockwell Grove

10456007_10204042482293279_539030985644289931_n   Sunrise buckets has been one of my favorite places to eat since my friends and I first discovered it 3 years ago in its branch in Madison square Greenhills. My friends and I used to come here all the time and down 2 and a half pounds of chicken together. The vanilla float is also something that we loved having here and also the Vanilla milkshake is one you should try.

I love eating here most especially because their chicken is really good and they always come up with new and exciting flavors to try. So I brought my boyfriend here last wednesday. Its “wing wednesday” every wednesday and you get the half pound free for every two and a half pounds of chicken you get. We finished 24 chickens, 12 of the original and 12 of the black pepper together and a side of bacon and cheese fries

Price range here is not that bad either. It depends on the flavor you are getting, because you can mix two flavors for the 2 and a half pounds. They differ in price range per set. Ours was Php 675 for 2 and a half pounds of chicken. I would recommend that you come here with an empty stomach especially if you are planning to eat a lot of chickens. They also have a menu of different kinds of burgers of which I have yet to try. But I just can’t get enough of their deliciously seasoned and perfectly cooked chickens. If you are extra hungry the most you can order is 5 pounds of chicken and you can mix about 4 different flavors. Maybe if you are a group of friends you can down 40-48 chickens together.

SUNRISE BUCKETS

Price Range: We spend about 900 pesos for the 2 and a a half pounds of chicken and the fries. Also because it was wing Wednesday so we got the half pound free. I would suggest to bring about Php 500 per person.

Recommendations: Chicken Flavors (Sunrise Original, Black pepper, Jack Daniels, Ultimate Crazy Hot, Honey Mustard) Their sauces are also good for the chicken if you are to eat it with rice.

Two branches. One in Rockwell grove and one in Madison Square greenhills. They also deliver!
