I finally allowed myself to get around to trying the honey hot wings at Boundary Stone after they were voted the best in DC by the Washingtonian Magazine. I was quite excited, since my old place for wings went defunct and I have yet to find a suitable replacement to get my wings fix. I didn’t do any background research into Boundary Stone, other than reading the final installment of the Wing Wars series, so I was expecting this to be a predominantly wings-centered pub. I was initially disappointed when they did not have different selections of wings and only as a side item of eight wings for $8.00. I ordered them with the thought of ‘these better be the best wings I’ve ever had.’
I did thoroughly enjoy everything I ate, but I strongly suggest going during happy hour. The wings are normally $8.00, but drop to $4.00 during their happy hour from 4pm-7pm M-Th (P.S. Parking will probably be difficult during those times). You could double up your order and get 16 wings for $8.00, which is a very good price for some very good wings and will simulate the ‘Big Bucket O’ Wings’ experience. The happy hour price hits my criteria for a “Cheap Eats Jackpot!”
If you’re looking for a ‘Big Bucket O’ Wings’ place, this is not it. However, if you’re looking for a higher-level cuisine than your average pub with ‘bring-a-date’ quality food and atmosphere (well, that depends on how cool your date is. This is not a place for squares), you should check it out. There are several seasonal menu offerings not listed on the online menu and I’m sure you’ll find something interesting.
