Feeling saucy? The Michigan-based wing chain Detroit Wing Company will debut its first Florida location in Tampa this weekend.
Located at 5006 E Fowler Ave., the grand-opening
is Saturday, Feb. 18, and doors open at 11 a.m. The first 25 people in line will get a chance to enter to win free chicken wings for a year, and the first 300 people in line get a free six-piece chicken wing and fry combo.
The spot has 20 wing sauces and six variations of dry rubs. If wings aren't your thing, the menu also has various types of mac ‘n cheese, cornbread bites, poutine and seasoned fries.
The big thing here is beer and sauce pairings. An interactive menu on the company's website
, shows what sauces taste best with each sauce. For example, the company's spiciest flavor, Hot Garlic, pairs best with a hoppy/bitter brew, like a Bell's Two Hearted, says the site.
The chain first opened in Eastpointe, Michigan in 2015 and currently has over 30 restaurants, mostly in Michigan and Ohio, and now its first outpost in Florida.
