Thirst T’s Podcast Review

I believe this was my first time at Thirst T’s since it was re-opened from Runcos. I’ve been meaning to check it out sooner because I remember Runco’s had an interesting selection of wings. It is pretty similar to Runco’s, but it has been made much more modern. The place is mainly a bar for live acts. They have a lot of open floor, a big bar, and some tables for sitting. The place has plenty of TVs and stuff to keep you busy like darts, pool, and a jukebox. We sat at the bar, which is well lit and looks pretty cool with the bottle of liquor all lit up behind it. It wasn’t super packed so the service was pretty fast. The bartender was a nice enough guy who was always on top of getting our food and drinks. It seems like a great place to hang out if you’re from the Olyphant area.
There wasn’t a crazy selection of flavors here. It is interesting that you can add garlic to any of the flavors, so that definitely expands the possibilities. It was nice to see a unique flavor like Tangy Barbeque Fireball on the menu. It’s just hitting me now, but I did realize the place really advertised Fireball liquor, so I wonder if the wing included the liquor into it. Hmmm, it really makes you wonder.
The wings were $0.49 each and were just an average size. You should be able to handle your usual number with no struggles.
I ordered the Hot, Spicy Caesar Parm, and Tangy Barbeque Fireball. The Hot were not your traditional hot. They weren’t very saucy. It seemed like the hot sauce was baked into the wing. Generally, I’m not a big fan of baked wings, but these ones were tasty, in my opinion. I liked the flavor, which carried a great spice and buttery taste to them. I am curious how they would be with a wet Hot sauce. The Tangy Barbeque Fireball were pretty good in my book. I’m not crazy for a barbeque sauce, but this was one of the better ones I’ve had. They weren’t as spicy as your are led to believe, though. Again, I think they have the word Fireball in there because of the liquor. Finally, the best of the bunch was Spicy Caesar Parmesan. These wings were great. A lot of places tend to provide a Caesar parm wing, but Thirst T’s spiced it up a bit, quite literally. The added seasoning and herbs on these wings provided a great flavor
