Once a year I get to visit my good friends out in the burbs and we always try to make it a special occasion since they are all married w/ children and it’s hard to align our schedules.
I had been craving wings from BW3 for longer than I are to mention. In the city it’s always loud and ‘brahs’ in backward ball caps are boisterous and high fiving to the point where it’s just damned annoying and to a wing snob such as myself it takes away from the experience.
The plan was to meet at the Orland Park location which being just after work I was not sure what to expect. What I did experience was first rate service from the moment we walked in.
We were seating immediately in the bar section and our waitress Ashley was prompt in taking our drink order as we sat. As we waited for our third party I made my way over to the jukebox where I was helped by another helpful employee named Amanda. The TV’s all had sports on but the volume was off so we could enjoy music. This oversized jukebox was new to me and the assistance and attention was very much appreciated. She even went out of her way to turn it up for us. Now that’s customer service.
Since the last time I was at a BW3 a lot of new flavors have been added to the menu. My order of 20 included SALT & VINEGAR SEASONING, BUFFALO SEAOSNING, my old favorite CARIBBEAN JERK and my new favorite JAMMIN’ JALAPEÑO which has just enough heat to linger on your palate which is something I look for in a pepper sauce. One of my friends later commented on how amazed he was at hot meaty our wings were and he was spot on, these were not the typical wimpy wings from a pizza joint.
Over the 25 or so years that I’ve been dining at BW3 this was by far the best experience and so much so that I will be venturing to this location again very soon. Yes it was that great and it’s well worth venturing out of Chicago city limits for the experience.
The food was delicious and I’m going to have to buy the Jalapeno sauce for my own kitchen. A big thank you to the staff at this BW3 who set a new standard in excellent service and I hope to see you all again soon.
