We were on Wolf Road this past weekend running some errands, and we decided to grab a bite to eat. Having been down the beaten path of Wolf Road many times, we decided to try one of the newer places, The Recovery Room, which is located at the back end of the Hannaford Plaza at Sand Creek Road.
Now, when I open a menu and see multiple flavors of boneless tenders, a fire lights up inside of me. I love places like Buffalo Wild Wings or Buffalo Wings and Rings, and I have been trying to fill a void that’s been empty since Scubbers closed three years ago. I love buffalo tenders. So when I opened the Recovery Room menu and saw a continuum of sauces, I got a little happy. For $9.99, you can get a sampler of boneless tenders (or regular wings). So, of course, I opted for this. I picked Cheerleader, Thai Sweet Chili, and Hot.
Here’s what I got:
In my opinion, the portion is a little scant for $10 (basket of fries not included). You could go right up the road to Buffalo Wings and Rings and get triple the food for the same price. Alright, it’s a tough economy; everyone’s trying to turn a buck.
As far as flavors, the cheerleader and sweet Thai chili were a little strange. Cheerleader was just a bbq sauce with a dusting of cajun seasoning. The Thai was just too sweet and not spicy enough. The hot ones were interesting. The sauce was just a Franks/butter sauce. The addition of jalapeños helped add heat, but not enough for my taste.
Overall, I’d say these wing sauces were a fail.
To comment on Cassie’s meal, she ordered a panini that was fashioned on the faces of white bread. It looked kind of smooshed and not appetizing. I don’t think she was a major fan.
I won’t be rushing out to dine at a Recovery Room any time soon.
What kind of strange seasoning do you add to your bbq sauce to make Cheerleader sauce?
