How To Order Wings

We have 5 flavors and 4 sizes. Choose a flavor and a size. But, each flavor can also be ordered “dirt style” (except Dry Rub, see below), something invented at the taverne in the mid-90s. So when you want to order wings we will ask you: 1) What flavor? 2) What size? 3) Dirt style?

For information on take-out, please click/tap here.

Here are the options and how to order:

Choose a size:

    • Mini – 6 wings
    • Single – 10 wings
    • Double – 20 wings
    • Bucket – about 35-40 wings, give or take, 6.5 pounds before cooking

Choose a flavor:

Original Buffalo – Our Buffalo wings are considered “medium” spicy. Not too hot. We are about flavor, not necessarily heat. Can we make them hotter? Slightly hotter, yes. But if you are expecting HEAT HEAT HEAT OMG these are so fire…nope. Can we make them more mild? Slightly milder, yes. But when you order straight-up Buffalo, they are medium spicy. Our Original Buffalo Wings have won numerous awards, year after year. The Food Network called our buffalo sauce "the best wing sauce in the nation!". Watch the video here.

Honey Gold BBQ – a delicious mix of honey and golden BBQ sauce, not at all spicy. Not too sweet.

Teriyaki – Asian-flavored with a very slight kick.

Sweet Red Chili – a delectable combination of sweet and spice with a kick of heat at the end. We tested about 15 new flavors for about 8 months in 2014 asking our guests for feedback. This was the overwhelming favorite.

Buffalo Chipotle Dry Rub – A bit spicy, a bit smokey. Our first dry rub wings! These can't be done dirt style, thought they do have a base of our Buffalo Sauce.

If you're not going to be eating or serving your wings right away, our Cold Wing Pack is the perfect solution! Click/tap here to learn about the Cold Wing Pack.

Choose Dirt Wings or no:

The “dirt” wing was invented at J. Timothy’s Taverne. Even though other places do call their wings “dirty-style” please do not accept substitutes. Our Dirt Wings are fried and sauced, then fried again and sauced again. We don't charge extra for this! Some people call this double-sauced, double- fried. We just call ‘em dirt! It results in a wing that is a caramelized and a bit crispier. There will be charred bits and they are delicious. They are not burnt! That is the sauce caramelized on the wing.

Dirt wings were created by one of our guests. Barry was on our softball team. After the games he would come in with the rest of the team and order wings. He was nicknamed “Dirt” because he was the oldest one on the team, i.e. "old as dirt". Ha. Barry was very sociable, he would talk and talk and tell great stories. His wings would sit while he finished his stories. By the time he was done talking the wings would be cold. He said to our Chef, “Just add some more sauce and re-fry them.” Everyone realized they tasted really, really good when fried and sauced again. Voila! The “Dirt” Wing was born. Thanks Barry!


Chicken Tenders

We also serve chicken tenders. They are breaded, all white meat boneless chicken. These are not small, boneless chicken chunks or poppers; they are tenderloins. Our chicken tenders can be served plain or covered in any of our 4 sauces. Chicken tenders cannot be served dirt style.

Sizes and prices for chicken tenders are below, with or without sauce. Each order is served with bleu cheese, celery & carrots.

6 tenders

12 tenders

20 tenders

Frequently asked questions about wings, click/tap the question to reveal the answer:

Multiple sizes of flavors are available so you can try the various flavors. Individual sizes cannot be mixed.
All of our sizes come with a mix of drumsticks and flats.
Yes our buffalo wings are gluten-free! The teriyaki wings have some soy sauce, which might be tolerable for people without Celiac’s disease. None of our wings have a flour coating. The oils in which they are fried have been cross-contaminated with gluten product. We leave it to you to decide how sensitive you are to gluten when ordering these items.
Wow, that is a loaded question. People definitely have opinions about this! It’s like asking if ketchup belongs on hot dogs! (Don’t start that one!) We serve every order of wings with our homemade bleu cheese and carrots/celery. If you prefer ranch we will happily substitute it!
We produce over 300 tons of wings per year. 300 tons! Even though our kitchen is very, very large, we are limited by the number of fryers we can accommodate, which limits the number of flavors. We love our flavors and hope you do too!
We don’t keep track, but it’s a lot! We are so pleased and humbled every time we win an award! Thank you for voting for us! And thank you for loving our dirt wings.
Sort of. Maybe if you have a deep fryer. They really are best deep-fried. And, we sell our Buffalo Sauce in the restaurant at the General Store so you can come pretty close to making our wings! You can also bake wings with our sauce, but they’re not the same as dirt wings. Either way, you can also use our sauce for other great dishes like Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Buffalo Mac ‘N Cheese, and Buffalo Chicken Dip.
We haven’t really kept track of this but we do know of at least one person who has eaten 50 wings at one time! We do not recommend this. ☺
