Swing-In Pizza Wings Very Bad
I don’t have a Yelp® account so I am coming here to leave my review of the wings at Swing-In Pizza because this podcast mentioned Swing-In Pizza AND wings.
Saturday night my best friends texted me asking if I wanted to try Swing-In Pizza at their new location beneath some luxury condos built for wealthy students. They had previously been in a nearby building where they had made pizza since like 1967 I think. But that one only had one table. And it didn’t really seem like a table that invited diners. It was kind of a fiberglass picnic table that seemed to just be a place to sit while waiting on your pizza. Anyways, this new location had multiple tables and multiple giant televisions. I had already eaten some oven roasted potatoes with jalapeño goat cheese at home at 6pm right before my friends texted me so I wasn’t that hungry. But my stomach is always open to eating buffalo wings so I ordered 6 of them at Swing-In Pizza. I asked the waitress if she could please have mine made “extra crispy” and she said that would be no problem. BUT then when the wings arrived there was no crisp! The opposite of “extra crispy”! It was like someone had left the wings out in the rain with Richard Harris’ cake! In fact, the skin seemed extra thick and was very soft and gross. And they tasted microwaved! I ate all six of them because the only thing I hate more than these gross wings is wasting money. But I will not make the mistake of ordering these chicken wings twice! Since I’m here I should also mention this podcast. I have listened to every episode so far and both of them were good episodes! As someone who is used to listening to 3 hour long wrestling podcasts I liked the brevity of this 45 minute show! Not Great? More like Great!
