Good wings but... – I would rather go to Buffalo Wild Wings because it is cheaper, the sauces taste better, and they have boneless wings. This is a good place to get take out from and is worth going to at least once just to experience it.
good, but not great – first off, do not order the 'el jefe' sauce. i eat spicey food quite a lot, but this sauce is just extreme. i think it's mostly a gimick.
the wings (wing pieces) are good but not spectacular. the sauces, except el jefe, are all good. the fries are good but somewhat greasy.
the pricing is a bit high for wings. when we went last, 6 wings cost about 8 bucks. that's a bit ridiculous, especially considering a wing is really a wing 'piece' - only one part of a wing. seems deceptive. two roasted real wings at my local grocer cost about 1 buck. sure, no ambience at the grocer, but this gives an idea of cost range for FOTM.
Don't go unless you are desperate – I was very disappointed with this joint. The waitress was so rude when we ordered, I thought she was joking - when we asked what kind of beer they had she pointed to a sign and said read-it's right there.
The Food - Wings were ok - I have had better - much better. I ordered the Portabello Sandwich and it was bland - like eating cardboard. The only way I would go back would be a free dinner for me and 20 of my closest friends - which won't happen - get the point?
Delicious veg options, easy on wallet – Being vegetarian and having the occasional hot wing craving I usually don't have a place to ease my needs. However, their veg nuggets (Portland style wings) with Hot or Medium sauce was legendary! Each mouthful brought sweat beads and tingling sensation throughout my body. It was divine! The crispy texture of the nuggets and creamy blue cheese dressing was a perfect merriment. My non-veg head husband, had the blue cheese and bacon burger and cleaned his plate in just a few minutes. The sweet potato fries were better than Burgerville (can I say that?!). Sweet and salty friend goodness is always welcomed in my belly. We've gone back one more time since December. Yum.
Like a Volcano exploded on my tongue...in good way! – I tell ya what...47 states and 7 provinces of canada and these are the best wings I have ever came across.
Mouth watering lipsmacking goodness. Takes a bit to get the food..It was so good who cares. The deep fried mushrooms are awsome, and the tots crisp. The wings..well boy howdy I could eat them three meals a day. Hot crispy and sauce so good i almost licked the serving basket. end it off with a deep fried twinkie and nervana. I know I am going back.
Good place, good wings, good beer – Lots of sauce choices, chicken wings are good. Vege wings are good too. Chicken sandwiches good and juicy. Fries are awesome!! Lots of choices on sauce. Interstate location more homey and service was good.
good wings...clueless, apathetic staff.... – I have been here enogh to know not to expect decent service...last time (which will be my last time), my order, after 35 minutes, was given to the wrong table (who gladly accepted it because it was twice the size of the order they paid for)...then after asking about it, they told me they would have to remake them...after another 25 minutes they brought my order short 12 wings...when I mentioned this (which I had to wait in line 15 minutes to do) I was told it would be another 20-25 minutes to get the rest of my order...I left...furious at the apathy
both locations: friendly service, delicious food – I don't eat wings too often, but when I do these are the only ones I eat. Perfectly cooked, nice and crispy, and tons of sauces to choose from. Personal favorite is the thai peanut, or whatever it's called. They also have veggie wings, granted it's just those gardenburger chik'n nuggets, but you still get to experience the delicious sauces. If you're looking for something healthy on the menu, though don't know why you'd go to a wing joint expecting healthy, they do have pretty good salads. I also love their sweet tea, good ol' porch sittin tea with tons of sugar. Highly recommend this place.
Last Saturday I ate 25 wings – My S.O. and I went over to FOTM to meet up with a friend. I have been going to FOTM for many years now and love their wings and especially their Spicy Peanut Sauce... I find it funny reading the message below that the person complained most of the food was unhealthy. Who goes to a wing joint and expects healthy food? What do you think they only serve poached chicken breast. Give me a break. I love wings and this place is the greatest wing joint in Portland!!!
Anyway, we ordered 48 wings, with 48 you get 4 sauces so we ordered, Spicy Peanut, Ethiopian, Jamaican Jrk and Bourbon Chipotle. The peanut sauce will always be my favorite (I always have a jar of it in my fridge at home... it is great on salads and with shrimp) but the Ethiopian would be a very close second. So tasty and so delicious and clearly deeply thought out as to how it would taste on wings.
I must say that every time my S.O. and I come to Portland we dine at FOTM and this last week was the first time I was able to broach the 20 piece mark. I am quite proud of myself... Although when we told our friend's girlfriend, she said, and I quote "25 wings.... pift... that's not that many" ha... and our buddy said " but, including the sauce, we'll thats quite a feat" but anyway... I don't mean to brag, I am just trying to communicate how great these wings are!!!
Oh yeah, and the wings travel well. They have the perfect to go containers that hold the sauce and wings together nicely, also the wings re-heat pretty well too. But I would not keep for longer than a fay as the skin starts to get a bit soggy..
Interstate location: Poor service, Diappointing food.. – Most of the food was very unhealthy. Deep fried twinkies or pickles, Chicken wings. I ordered the "spicy peanut paste" it's anything but spicy, it consisted of cold spaghetti noodles with some very bland peanut sauce. The help are impatient, rude, and loiter outside the restaurant on the curb smoking cigarette's... Might as well forget it if your vegetarian.
