Waldo’s is a pretty small bar located near the bottom of Green Ridge Street. It is a very missable building with a sign of a walrus over the door. I always thought it was a townie bar, but I was surprised by the crowd once I entered. There were plenty of people who could be described as townies, but there was also a younger crowd there. It was surprisingly crowded, too. The bar does allow smoking, which the patrons were taking full advantage of. My clothes reeked of cigarette smoke the next day. It took quite a while for the food to come out, and the waitress said our drink orders can only be placed at the bar. We only wanted water, which is provided in water bottles. I hate when places don’t give you tap water and charge you for the water. Between the outrageous amounts of smoke and the many inconveniences of service, Waldo’s wasn’t exactly the best place to eat wings.
There was a decent selection of flavors. A lot of the flavors I have seen before, but they had a whole menagerie of wing choices.
These wings were slightly above average, but at $0.30 a wing, they are the cheapest around. You will be filled up without spending a pretty penny.
I ordered the Hot, Hot Ranch, and Hot Honey Garlic. I was underwhelmed by the flavors I ordered. The Hot was very spicy, but didn’t hold much flavor. That buttery taste that I love from a wing was absent. It was just a salty hot flavor. The Hot Ranch were decent. The Ranch added a good flavor to the Hot sauce. The Hot Honey Garlic were lacking the Honey part. The Hot and Garlic were pretty dominant, but I didn’t get a sweet honey taste. I was looking forward to it, but I was let down. I also tried the Captain Morgan. It could have done with a bit more sauce, but it was actually pretty tasty. It’s more along the lines of a sweet sauce, but I can go for those once in a while.
