Gettin' saucy at Dalton's

It was Friday night, and AV wanted wings. The only wings place we've been to near me was Lansdowne Road, which provided a particular kind of wings experience-- more on the dry-rubbed side, less on the saucy and sloppy side. Well, that wouldn't do for this particular moment in time, and since I'm not particularly helpful in terms of recommending wings joints based on personal experience, we took a gamble and rolled up to Dalton's, a sports bar on Ninth Avenue.

Dalton's is a cool place; there's lots of room to spread out, an extensive food menu to order from, and a long, long list of draught beers. Music blasted over the speakers as we ordered our drinks-- a draught Yuengling for AV, a bottle of Magners cider for me. Our almost preternaturally friendly waitress took AV's wings order, and we were on our way.

The verdicts on drinks? Delish. The verdict on the wings? Also excellent. The wings were notably large, swimming in sauce, and there were quite a few of them in each order. AV noted that the veggies were crisp and fresh and not soggy at all. The only downside to the order was, paradoxically, the bleu cheese-- it had almost a grainy texture, which was disappointing. But overall, an enjoyable wings experience.

I didn't know buffalo had wings! Ba-zinnnnnng

Done and done. We'll probably be back to Dalton's-- it's actually a nice friendly place to grab a drink. A nice Friday night indeed.
