Review: Pizza Hut - Buffalo Wings

Taking advantage of Pizza Hut's 50 Cent Wing Wednesday promotion, I tried their Boneless Buffalo Wings which, as far as I can tell, are not wings at all, but breaded breast pieces doused in buffalo sauce.  They're normally eight "wings" for $6.99 but at 50 cent a wing, it came out to $4.

You can also get Pizza Hut's wings in "Traditional" (non-breaded bone-in wings) or "Crispy Bone-In" (self-explanatory).  It is normally slightly less for bone-in wings at eight wings for $6.49 in my neck of the woods.

Buffalo flavor is available in three levels of spiciness: mild, medium, and burnin' hot (personally I would have named my hottest flavor "ragin' inferno" or "novacane substitute" but that's just me).  I chose to go with "medium."  Buffalo sauce (and wings), by the way, is named after their city of origin: Buffalo, NY, and is basically cayenne pepper hot sauce and butter or margarine.
So how was it?  It was quite spicy with lasting heat so I would say spicy enough unless you hate your tongue, in which case, I would suggest "burnin' hot."  The breading was soggy but that's not unexpected when wings are sauced.  The Buffalo sauce was used too liberally and overpowered much of the chicken flavor; there was just too much salt and vinegary sourness.

Also they didn't offer us any Ranch sauce!  How can I eat Buffalo Wings with no Ranch sauce?!  Celery and carrots sticks would be nice as well.

  4. Hell they were not even wings and no where near as big as the pictures show. Very disappointing and will not order again. I am sure they will not be on the menu too long.

  8. These are Wing Street wings, they're a little different than normal pizza hut wings and are only available at Wing Street participating locations. Regular PH wings are mild wings, hot wings, and boneless wings which are mild flavored. You can have them mixed in Franks red hot or Cattlemens mississippi BBQ sauce for free but you won't get a free ranch or blu cheese like you would with non sauced wings. Ask for your bone-in wings to be run through the oven 2x, trust me.

  9. That's interesting. I would have thought that they would used the same wings regardless. Thanks for the tip.

  13. I know this is old, but ranch sauce? What is ranch sauce?

    Hope I get plenty of ketchup sauce next time I order french fries. Or, maybe I'll grab some mayonnaise sauce when I pack my lunch tomorrow. Or mustard sauce. Not sure.

    Can't wait to make some biscuits and put gravy sauce all over it for breakfast tomorrow. Or milk sauce on my cereal.

  14. The ranch dressing is far better than bleu cheese. I can't even stomach it. RANCH FTW. Bleu cheese is for pussies.

  15. You should try them now, they're actually pretty good. Not as good as wingstreet, but good.

  16. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Lol the wings I brought were big, real big. But I guess it was mostly breading.

  18. I just had the hot bone in wings the heat wasnt so bad but they was so sour you could hardly stand it

  19. Man, no need to hate on these wings. They're quite good considering they come from Pizza Hut. The chicken is plump in each bite, and the wing sauce is on par with most wing joints out there. I was expecting much less, but I can say I'll order another round!
