Houston has no shortage of restaurants. From Italian to Ethiopian to Columbian and beyond, just about any type of ethnic food can be found someplace in the city. It is great to have such variety and so many options, but sometimes, a simple meal of wings, burgers, fries, and great beer is all we crave and one establishment that can easily satisfy these simpler, American food desires is Wild Wing Café, a casual west Houston restaurant located in the Katy area, near I-10 and Westgreen road.
Wild Wing Café has a nice number of food options. The selections are divided among:
Appetizers: Select such delicious pre- meal fare as chips and salsa, super spinach dip, mozzarella sticks, and pretzel bites.
Flatbreads: Chose among five different flatbread pizzas as a before- meal appetizer or a meal by itself
The Spud Zone: A selection of all things potato, this part of the menu offers cheesy fries, buff chips, sweet potato fries, and more
Nachos/Quesadillas: This section of the menu includes selections such as BBQ chicken nachos, chili nachos, chicken quesadillas, etc.
Slider Station: If burgers are your thing but you like them small, this part of the menu could have just what you’re looking for. Choose among BBQ sliders, sloppy joes, or the standard mini- hamburgers. There is even a sampler option with two each of three different options.
Saucy Favorites: The most important section of the menu to Wild Wing Café fans, this is where customers will find the wide selection of wings, chicken fingers, ribs, and boneless nuggets. The wing options include about 35 different choices with varying degrees of hotness.
Great Grillers: Select among the delicious burgers and chicken sandwiches, always sure to please
Sandwiches: An assortment of sandwiches can be found in this part of the menu, including club sandwiches, BBQ pork, philly, buffalo chicken, and more.
Wild Wraps: Fajita Fiesta Wrap, Buffarella, Terrific Turkey Twister, and The Cool Chick tempt your taste buds in the wrap section.
Soups and Salads: For lighter eating, this section of the menu includes chili, loaded potato soup, chicken salad fajita salad, and more.
Wild Wing Café offers a good selection of beer that, while not as good as some of Houston’s better known craft beer hangouts, is still good for this type of establishment. The selections include many of the usual mainstream brew like Miller, Coors, Budweiser, Corona, and like products, but there are some craft and semi- craft options as well. Wild Wing Café sells St. Arnold and Karbach beer products, along with other craft brews like Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, and a few imports. It is common to find great special deals throughout the week, on both individual bottles/cans of beer and on buckets of bottles.
The atmosphere at Wild Wing Café is casual and sports- oriented with about 21 flat/large screen television sets supplying sports actions throughout the day and night. The upstairs level has a pool table and some bench seating that overlooks the level below and it is common to hear live music every Friday and Saturday. Karaoke and trivia are also part of the weekly entertainment and are offered on specific days of the week.
Wild Wing Café is a nice little restaurant in the Katy area and one of the first places that comes to mind when I’m in the mood for wings. The restaurant offers about 35 different wing options and I like that they label each of the options according to hotness. Some people love hot, spicy wings but others do not and it is nice that the restaurant gives you an idea what the options are like so that you do not have to constantly inquire with the wait staff.
Prices at Wild Wing Café are generally low and are often made even cheaper with the frequent special offers. Tuesday evenings, for example, are designated “Two Fer” Tuesdays because customers can purchase eight wings of their choice and get eight free. During lunch, there is often an all you can eat wing bar priced under $10, which is a great bargain when you consider how much food this amounts to for the money. It is also common to find appetizers priced two for one during lunch hours and other special deals have become part of the regular lineup. Guests should inquire with the waiters to see what special offers are available when they visit, because there always seems to be something and it changes from day to day and from week to week.
As for the beer, it would be nice if Wild Wing Café offered a larger craft beer selection, but they do have several local brews and, like with the food, it is common to find these beer selections at ridiculously low prices. Beer products from Houston’s Karbach Brewing, for example, are sometimes sold for only $2 per can, which is an incredible price for any tavern or restaurant. And with the mainstream beers, it is common to find special offers on individual bottles and even better deals on buckets of six bottles.
All in all, Wild Wing Café is a nice plan to dine, watch sports, and save a little money in the process. Several of the appetizers are large enough to consume as a meal and the majority of products are priced below $10 each. Add to that the great deals on beer and the different entertainment and you have an establishment worth an occasional visit.
