Wings Over Framingham is open

August 8th, 2009

Last night was Wings Over Framingham’s opening day and we didn’t feel like cooking so we decided to check them out.
We used their online ordering and found that pretty easy to use.Β  A nice feature they have is that you can check on your food via the website too.Β  We were really surprised that what seemed liked 10 minutes that it was updated to “Your food is on it’s way” and shortly after that someone was at our door with our wings.
We both got boneless wings, I got “wimpy” and Ethan got a bit spicier “red alert”.

I like that they marked at least one of them because the Chicken Bone doesn’t and we can never tell which one is spicy, which leads us to believe maybe they just put the same sauce on both or maybe their mild just isn’t that mild because we can’t tell the difference, but anyway it’s nice to have some identification.

These were pretty good,Β  they could have come with a little more celery, which seemed like enough for one person but it was their first day and maybe something happened with the celery portion.
I’d say these are just as good as Chicken Bone and the edge Wings Over Framingham would have over them is their extremely fast delivery.
They have 24 sauces to choose from and you can find all of the info you need about this place on their website:


  1. I was beginning to wonder if they would ever open! Now i can do my taste test with Chicken Bone’s Thermonuclear vs their Afterburner. May God have mercy on my soul!

  2. I will order delivery some night when I’m desperate for dinner ideas πŸ™‚

    As for the best buffalo wings ever? I’d have to say………. and this is going to SOUND crazy but:

    CHUCK E CHEESE has the best buffalo wings! I like them mild though so I do not know if their “Hot” is hot enough for hot wing lovers. But, they seem to have the best quality wing of everyplace I’ve tried!

  3. Tried these and found that Chicken Bone is still my favorite. I like that there’s always more than I can eat and plenty of celery and blue cheese. Plus their salads are fantastic. Good luck to Wings but I’ll be at the Chicken Bone myself.

  4. I so far love this place. Super quick delivery and there are so many flavors, I just need to go back for more!

    The sweet and sour is delicious! Spicy teryaki is good, and the Buffalo are also very good. The order takers leave a little to be desired but what can you do.

    I wonder why they didn’t knock the wall down and make the place bigger and more spread out, it seems like every time I drive by the place is packed, perhaps more seats would attract even more people.

  5. These wings are amazing! They delivered (on a Friday night) so quickly, and the wings were still quite hot. Very nicely packed. Flavorful & crisp – level of spice was just as indicated on menu – will definitely be buying from here from now on!

  6. The Original Wings is in Amherst and attached to an excellent restaurant named the Hangar. I worked there for two years and asked the owner once why there was only one hangar but several Wings. His response was that you couldn’t franchise atmosphere. I agree with his sentiment and suggest you try The Hangar out if you’re ever in Amherst. I’m excited to try Wings over Framingham and see if the stack up to the ones in Amherst.

  7. We decided to give Wings Over Framingham a try and I’m sorry we did. I got boneless wings with honey bbq sauce. The chicken was moist and tender but the sauce completely ruined the chicken. A friend got the garlic-parmesean wings. She said they were overcooked and dried out. Maybe there were having a bad night. Who knows. But the Chicken Bone wins my vote.

  8. I’ve ordered from these guys several times now. The service is outstanding, the food quality is very good and it is consistent. Wings stack up well with the Chicken Bone. The ribs are pretty good as well. I will be a regular Customer of this establishment.

  9. I ordered the same meal from both Wings and the Chicken Bone over the course of two weeks. The order was large bone in wings, onion rings, caeser salad and a half rack of ribs, enough food to sink a battleship. Two things became very clear:
    1. The price was within .50 of each other.
    2. Chicken Bone’s quality and service have improved greatly since Wings moved in.
    I am a HOT wing guy, and both Afterburner and Thermonuclear were not quite there. Go to Beer Works or Hooter’s and ask for their hottest wings – you will be sweating bullets in short order!

    Both restaurants are doing a great job with their food quality and service. I plan to eat at both locations so we can keep them in Framingham. I had no complaints with either meal.

  10. Today,we purchased Wings,Ribs and Fries.The wings were very good,the ribs were very” fatty” and burnt on the bottom and the fries were “soggy”.The sauces were ok.The prices were “moderate” and the quantities were “passable”.I still haven’t been able to find “good” ribs anywhere except Texas.

  11. was looking forward to trying wings tonight so once I got my 9 month old son settled in bed I placed my delivery order. Woman tells me it is too far out away and would I mind picking them up. Unfortunately the wife was out of town so that was a no go. I live near framingham state which cant be more than 2 miles from 135 wonder how little of an area they cover. Oh well chicken bone delivers so I guess I will stick with them : )

  12. A bit late for this post, but as someone who went to UMass and spent a LOT of time getting Wings from the Hangar, I have to say I was really excited when I first heard that a franchise was opening in Framingham.

    And while the wings are still good, (We always order them dry with a variety of extra sauces to dip as we please) the atomosphere is VERY different than the original, and I’m not too thrilled that my husband and I live apparently just outside the delivery line. Also it seems like our severely complicated “just dry wings with sauce on the size please” order rarely gets sent out correctly. Always not getting enough flavors or wrong flavors or something.

    The trek to the physical location isn’t the most fun for us, and of course the first time I stopped by in person, there was a glut of, well, horrible people, crowding around (Seriously, we left the car and nearly bumped into to someone screaming and throwing things at a police officer. Great!) It took a loooooooong time to get our order to us, then we had to drive home, and by the time we got back they were already cooled quite a bit. πŸ™

    Granted, this was when the restaurant was first opening, and since then I’ve been sending my husband out to pick up any Wings we order, so I don’t know if it was new restaurant craziness and it’s improved, but I gather from the things he says about each journey that it really hasn’t, and the Wings still arrive cold due to the distance and inability to have them delivered.

    I must say our consumption has dropped dramatically compared to when we were living in Amherst (and no, it’s not just that we’re no longer starving college kids.)

    Bummer. I really love the original Wings, but something’s off about the Framingham version, and it’s a little dissappointing. The worst part is how it’s not necessarily the food that’s lacking, but it just doesn’t seem worth it for us to order there as much as we’d like. I didn’t mean to write a book about it, because it’s really not that horrid of a place, and most of my beef is with the fact that we’re not within the delivery zone…

    But it’s just really dissappointing for someone who loved the Hangar and managed to get their order driven out to them in snowstorms during the Superbowl by “uncaring” college kids who could still manage to get our order right and deliver on time. Now we have to get the Wings ourselves, contend with the usual crowd, have our order incorrectly placed, and eat them cold a half an hour later. Not what I was hoping for.

  13. As of 9/22/2011, Wings Over Framingham still provides a solid product for a fair price. This is fast food, so you need to know that the fare is not the Ritz, but I do have to say that the bonelss chicken is really good. Ribs, are menza menza, but, after all it is fast food people.
    Worth it for sure.
