Traditional Wingstop Flavors, ranked (wings, not tenders):
1. Lemon Pepper
2. Garlic Parm
5. Hickory Smoked BBQ
6. Spicy Korean
9. Traditional Buffalo
10. Mango Habanero
Honestly, Wingstop didn't have a ton of slip-ups. As you can see from above, the worst flavors were the Mango Habanero, which didn't have nearly enough spice to counter for the cloying sweetness, and the Hawaiian, which lacked any of the redeeming spice, but fell into the same camp.
Though better than those, the traditional Buffalo was perhaps the most disappointing. A bright, nearly pastel orange, the ratios of butter to vinegar to spice seemed off, and in each visit, the wings, especially the flats, tended to be more soggy and underwhelming. In the spectrum, they were *fine*, but for a place called Wingstop, I think nailing the original Buffalo wing sauce likely should be a priority.
From a sides perspective, the smothered fry options like Louisiana Voodoo (ranch, cheese sauce, cajun seasoning on fries) and Buffalo Ranch (buffalo sauce... plus ranch) ended up too soggy to really be satisfying, even when cooked extra well. And the cheese sauce lacked the tang and bite I was looking for, but these are honestly nitpicks. Wingstop's side game is on point.
