I needed to go to SLC today to run some errands, so part of the lunch crew decided to come with me so we could try out the Wing Coop (Today is almost a national holiday when it comes to work, so the other half of the lunch crew were all gone on holiday already.)
Ovi Maps couldn't find the place, so I had to rely on good old google maps to get there. Once we were pointed in the right direction finding the place was not hard at all as it is off of a major road, all be it in a small strip mall. The place from the outside appeared to be a hole in the wall, which for me is how it should be for wings. (A fancy wing place, just makes me think I am paying to much for my wings.) The inside of the restaurant is decked out in what I would call an "extreme sports" motif and once again I think this goes well with wings. After checking out the menu and seeing what they offered (17 sauces) we decided to go with the Wednesday special. 20 wings, 2 drinks and a large fry. We were able to choose 4 different sauces with our 20 wings, so we were able to try a few of them out.
When it came time to order we did end up standing at the cash register for quite some time, while the employees were doing something. Not sure if they were filling an order, or reading a book but it took some time to actually place the order. Two things that I noticed right away about the wing coop. 1st, all dipping sauces cost .50 cents (no dipping sauce for free) and 2nd, there was no sauce for the fries (ketchup or fry-sauce, or anything) For a place that prides itself on their wings sauce, they seem to forget about the staples (fries) and the sauce they need. Eventually I was able to find a container of ketchup packets.

Overall my experience at the wing Coop was very pleasant, the food was good and the atmosphere was good. Would I eat there again? Yes. Would I recommend it to others? Yes. Are they the best wings I have ever had? Well I will answer that with a ?.
I am looking forward to trying some of their other sauces to see what flavorful concoctions they have come up with, and perhaps I will find myself a new favorite wing sauce, and in the process a new favorite wing shop.
