Oxford Continues Building Arsenal of Delicious Wings

Behold!
Behold!

Considering wings are chickens’ arms, the situation is becoming Oxford’s version of an arms race.
Coop Deville, HotWangs.com, Buffalo Wild Wings. Oh, and Wing Fanatic (R.I.P.) As a devotee of wings, wing-focused establishments such as these always attract me. And then there are other places around town that may not be specialists but can basket some savory yardbird.
wingstop_green_logoOxford will soon welcome a new wing purveyor (according to the “Coming Soon” sign hanging on the building) when a location of Wingstop opens at 1518 West Jackson Avenue in the former Kiamie’s Coin Laundry space, and I’m anxious to give it a try and decide for myself where it lands in the chicken-pecking order. As a Southerner, I am unabashed in my love for that Yankee-born delicacy, the Buffalo wing, which remains my favorite flavor of wing. But variety is the spice of gluttony, and I am always up for an orgy of poultry pieces wearing myriad sexy flavors. It appears Wingstop will offer many choices and add to the deepening roster of Oxford wing resources. The restaurant is expected to open around the third week of October, says T. J. Griffin with BizCom Associates, a PR agency representing Wingstop.
According to the chain’s website, Wingstop launched in 1994 in Garland, Texas, “with the idea of serving the ultimate buffalo-style chicken wings and providing a superior guest experience at an exceptional value, every day.” The wings are cooked to order and available in 10 flavors.

This is where I will sit and shut out all voices and distraction as I mow through a couple dozen wings.
