This past Thursday I ventured to the west side of town for one of my brother-in-law’s birthday celebrations. We all decided to go to his favorite wing place, Wild Mike’s. Though I think I went to a different Wild Mike’s location, this was definitely my first time in this location on Harrison Avenue. Despite this location being relatively small, our table of seven was easily able to get a table together in the middle of the restaurant.
Though there were no specials on wings during our visit, their draft beer selections were super cheap. While the choices are limited to American mass-produced beers, they have recently added Yuengling (Lager and Black & Tan) so at least there are some decent choices for a great price.
My wife and I agreed to split a large order of boneless wings (1 lb for $12.29 with celery and choice of ranch or blue cheese) bathed in hot Mike’s Mix sauce. Mike’s Mix is a combination of their sauces so you get to try them all in one bite. This really appealed to me as I sometimes find it hard to pick just one or two sauces. Also I liked that all the flavors are available as mild, medium, hot, xtra hot, and stupid hot. So there are a ton of sauce options available. I really enjoyed the flavor combination that we ordered.
The wings game drenched in sauce, enough for our side of fries to be dipped in. Speaking of the curly-q fries, they were good. On their own they are a little bland, but there is an option of Cajun seasoning to be added to them, which I tried and enjoyed. Our table also split an order of jalapeno poppers which were fairly standard but still delicious.
I liked my experience so much that I can safely say that Wild Mike’s could very well be the best wing spot in Cincinnati.
