Cornwall ON – Cornwall Ontario has a long tradition when it comes to tasty Chicken Wings. It goes back to Freddies and their 10 cent wing nights which would draw line ups and sell as many as 20,000 wings in a single night.
I was talking with Paul Lefebvre who was reminiscing about it. He said that they cooked so many that the wings would literally be frying in chicken fat which gave them that extra special flavour and crispness.
Winners Sports Bar, under the Best Western PLUS Parkway Inn & Conference Centre tries to bring back those traditions of yesteryear.
They don’t do 10 cent wing night, but they do serve about the best chicken wings I’ve had in the city or area. These are not scrawny wings. They’re meaty; juice chunks cooked perfectly.
Mine arrived sizzling at the table and I tried three of their sauces, Guiness BBQ, Hot, and Honey Garlic.
Winners is part Man Cave, part secluded spot to have chat or a meeting. It’s warm, with rich colours, and the woody decor says sports! There’s a pool table, pop corn machine and interesting nooks and crannies to have a quiet meeting over a cold draught or meet with your friends and have your Hockey Pool draft!
The prices were good too and of course they have a full menu for lunch and evening. I had a roast beef of jus on crusty bread previously that was very good and they have fresh fries as well to complement your meal or wings. They had quite a few bar specials as well when I was there.
