Gone are the loud colors, sassy bumper stickers and hot sauces of Tijuana Flats and in its place is Main Street Wings (MS), the “Classic American Grill”. So you’re thinking same old wing joint right? Well you’re kind of right, kind of wrong. Where normally you order your wings in denominations of 10, at MS the wings are sold by the pound, so the wing count varies by day. When we visited Sunday, the wing count happened to be 8 fresh and tasty wingies. So let’s get down to business!
The decor: Looks like your average bar/wing joint with a twang of retro. I think it has potential, but a bit bare at the moment. Let’s not go buck-wild and kitsch it out like a Bennigan’s but it could use some decorative accents.
The service: They were a bit overstaffed, the ratio of staff to customers was almost 2:1. But our server was very nice and informative.
The food: Wings!!
- Taste – Celery was fresh, but a little skimpy with two small sticks. I had the Honey BBQ and my husband had the Teriyaki. Nice crisp skin, juicy meat, tasty sauce. I enjoyed the BBQ, the Teriyaki was a bit garlicky. They apparently are always changing out flavors and I’m hoping for Lemon Pepper one of these days.
- The presentation – Wings in a basket, nuff said.
- The price – Average wing prices. They have specials! Don’t quote me on this but I think half off wings Mondays and All-you-can-eat Thursdays, like ahem Buffalo Wing Factory.
The VUrdict: Hooray for wings!! Main Street Wings is a welcome addition to the Ashburn dining scene. Can’t wait to try everything else they have to offer.
p.s. B DUB THREE IS COMING TO DULLES!!! Not sure when they’re set to open but that is something I will be all over!! Uh oh competition oooooohhh. For all of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, Buffalo Wild Wings is coming to Dulles 28 Centre. There may just be a wing-off in the near future….
