I’ve passed Goodfellas countless times and ordered so much food from the place, but I was never actually inside it. We went to the Mulberry Street Location (there are two). This is right next to the University of Scranton, so I was expecting a busy, college crowd. I was very surprised to see how empty the place was when we first sat down. It is a large place, with a long bar and plenty of open floor and seating. There’s a pool table, darts, and some arcade games. It seemed there was a waitress going to some of the other tables, but we ended up going up to the bar to place our order. After placing our orders, we learned that there was a quiz night that night, so we had to leave our seating area by 10. Luckily, the wings came out pretty fast and we shoveled them in and left well before ten. The whole ordering to finishing eating process was very fast. As we were finishing up, that’s when the college crowd started to herd themselves in. The place got really crowded right before quiz night started. There were plenty of Natty Lights. All in all, it is a pretty cool place for food. Very laid back atmosphere with friendly people. The menu is massive (in regards to literal size and number of options).
There is an interesting assortment here, but a lot of the variety is a play on the same flavor, just hotter. Any place that has Thai Chile is pretty cool in my book, though.
I was a little skeptical on these wings prior to our outing. I saw that they were $0.35 a wing, but they were boneless. I thought maybe these could be those giant boneless chicken wings that you buy from the grocery store, or they could be those very small bites. Well, they were the smaller bites. It is a low price, but they are very small bites. I’d say it’s comparable to the size of a quarter but not as thin, obviously. Although wing chips are starting to sound like an awesome idea.
You can place an order for any number of wings that you want, which was pretty awesome. I got Hot, Amped Hot n Tangy, Thai Chile, and Spicy Garlic. All the wings I ordered were super spicy. I was near nose run level. The Hot had a nice hot wing sauce taste, but nothing mind blowing. Amped Hot and Tangy were very spicy, but had a solid taste to them. I was a fan of the Thai Chile. It was another spicy wing with a slight hint of sweetness. Spicy garlic were only decent. It was basically a salty Hot to me. You couldn’t taste too much of the garlic here. I also tried some of the Jack Daniels. Whenever you get a chance at a Jack Daniels sauce, go for it. These were great – A sweet, molasses-like sauce. The awesome garlic were interesting too. They had a whitish sauce on it, which provided a great taste.
