My sister-in-law, Turned, wanted to celebrate my upcoming birthday. She asked me where I wanted to go. To Mug Shotz Sports Bar! Our party of six – my husband, two brother-in-laws and a future sister-in-law made the trek out to Ogden.
We arrived at 7:00pm on a Friday night. The whole place was packed. We managed to get a table and ordered nine different types of wings: Mugz Shot Salt and Pepper; Hot; Honey Hot; Soy Sensation; Dill Pickle Hot; Louisiana Galic Parmesan; Sultry Ginger; Bacon Whiskey; and Thai Suicide.
My favourite flavours were the Mugz Shot Salt and Pepper, Soy Sensation, and Sultry Ginger. The wings and drums were juicy and meaty. The batter on most of the orders were crispy delights. However, one order was not cooked long enough and hence, lacked that satisfying crunch.
Besides the bigger than average size of the wings and drums, Mug Shotz adds ingredients you don’t normally see at a pub. The Mug Shotz Salt and Pepper came with bits of onions and peppers you would expect from a Chinese style salt and pepper squid. The Dill Pickle was topped with chopped up pickles. The Bacon Whisky wings were covered in bacon bits in a sticky sauce.
From Wednesday to Sunday, Mug Shotz offers plates of wings for $8.25 or larger sharing platters for $37. The price is right and the wings are so good, it is worth the commute if you don’t work nearby.
If you haven’t been, do check this legend out. I’m going to try to get my office mates out for wing night for the 5 lb wing platter. Unless of course, they are too chicken to do the 5 lb challenge. Cheers!
