The Vault, located on Main St. in Scranton used to be a bank not to long ago and you can certainly tell. I think I can still smell that bank smell. You know what I’m talking about, that mix of higher ups and greed. But I digress. It’s actually a really cool atmosphere in there. It had a Friday happy hour vibe but it was the middle of the week. The place was not surprisingly very clean. I would imagine there wasn’t too much cleaning when Eric Shrive and family decided to put a pub in there. Eric Shrive is a Scranton native that plays football at Penn State and is the anchor on their rough and tough offensive line. He’s a terrific player for the Nittany Lions and has done some fine work with the presentation of The Vault. Our waitress was helpful and kind to us.
Wing Flavors: 2
With only 3 flavors to choose from, The Vault, which is new to the scene, could benefit from at least a couple more flavors to choose from. What they have to offer are hot, mild and hot/mild garlic. But hey, it’s not my place, I just review wings.
Wing Size: 6
The size of the wings at The Vault is a bit above average. They’re meaty and they were cooked to a nice crispy state. Of course there are bigger there but there is also certainly smaller in this wonderful area. And at 40 cents, you won’t find to many places in this area with cheaper. If you did, you probably checked some sort of wing reviewing sight, if there is such a thing. Hey someone should…
Wing Taste (x2): 4
The taste only gets a 4 for me based on the fact that my variety was so limited. I ordered 10 hot and 10 hot garlic. The hot were tasty. They had that classic vinegar taste in the background of their hot sauce. Something that I feel is definitely a valley thing but from time to time it leeches into the big city. The hot garlic had the nice chunks of garlic to give you something else with your hot sauce. They were enjoyable but it just got repetitive for me only going from two flavors that were similar. But like I said earlier, The Vault is a new establishment. I wouldn’t be surprised if you start seeing a more extensive wing selection. At least I hope for that.
