Honkey Tonk is a country-themed restaurant at the top of Drinker Street in Dunmore. I was there once before for a night out, and a band was playing country music and people were line dancing. There was a band there for this wing night, but no line dancing, perhaps for the better. The crowd in the bar area was older and seemed to be familiar with the band as there was a lot of banter. The place seemed to be made completely of wood. The bar, walls, ceiling, floor – everything was wood. You could buy your own cowboy hat if you wanted, which, surprisingly, I did not. There is also a restaurant section that is separate from the bar and pretty roomy. Plenty of space to eat.  The service was top notch as well. Our waitress was very friendly and was always prompt on refills and ordering. The food came out pretty fast too. If you’re not a fan of country music, then you should stay away from this place, because that’s all you’re going to here the whole time. Otherwise, it was a pretty great place to get food.

I couldn’t find a menu online for Honkey Tonk and went into the place blind. I had a feeling there wouldn’t be a huge selection. I was correct. Although, there was some Hot Garlic Parm to be had, which was not on the menu.

I thought these wings were quite big for a hot wing. I was stuffed after only 12. I couldn’t have anymore. They were on the pricey side though.

I placed an order for Hot, Hot Garlic and Sweet and Sour. The Hot Garlic came out as Hot Garlic Parm. These wings were pretty interesting. They had a thin later of batter on them. It reminded me of the batter on KFC wings. No other wing place had something like that. I really enjoyed them though. It absorbed a lot of the flavor and made the wings crispy and chewy as well. The Hot were good. They had a nice spice to them and plenty of sauce.  The Hot Garlic Parm were very good too. The parm, garlic and hot sauce were mixed well. The Sweet and Sour were delicious as well. The sauce reminded me of the sweet and sour sauce from Burger King. That is more than alright with me.

The Honky Tonk is probably exactly like you have been told it was. It is a bar in Dunmore that has a Western feel to it. With cowboy merchandise all over the place to the separate dining room attached to the bar, you certainly get the yee-hay feeling. On this particular Wednesday, there was a band playing country songs and Neil Young by request. The patrons in the bar were friendly and funny with how they were communicating with the band. Our server was very nice, attentive to us and quick with everything she did.This place, I bet, would have very good other food as well. They even have a challenge burger called the Bronco Burger that is in total 4lbs that I wouldn’t mind taking a run at. A good time will be had at the Honky Tonk.

With only 5 flavors to choose from, the Honky Tonk loses points here. They had mild, hot, sweet and sour, honey mustard and bbq.

Wing Size: 5
The wings were pretty large but at 50cents each that brings the rating down a bit. But I assure you, you will leave full if you get at least 15-20. Trust me.

Okay, something that you need to know about these wings. This is the first place the Wingmen have encountered that put breading on their wings before frying. If you have ever had Hooters wings, you know what I mean. It was real interesting at first but soon at around me 12th wing I started to get a bit full. I always get 20 wings and usually at the end of 20 I am full, but at 12, for me, has never happened. Don’t get me wrong they were big anyways, but the amount of breading that was on them was a bit too much in my opinion. It just started to get a bit too rich as well. That intense breading with every bite took its toll. I ordered hot, honey mustard, bbq and sweet and sour. The hot might have been the best out of the bunch. They had a nice tang to them. The honey mustard, I thought could have had more of a mustard flavor to them. The bbq were typical, nothing special to them. And the sweet and sour I though need more flavor of both sweet and sour. They were a bit dull.
