BKITU: I will eat damn near anything without complaint. I grew up in a household where meals were basically optional, and even those that were provided tended toward the "throw a can of cream of mushroom soup into rice and maybe ground beef and heat" food groups. Beyond that, we sometimes had peanut butter. Sometimes.When you spend your formative years scrabbling to eat whatever you can find, occasionally raiding friends' pantries on the sly for something portable, you tend to develop a palate that will accommodate an exceptionally broad range of tastes and textures. It's "beggars can't be choosers" as a lifestyle, and it will permeate your entire sense of self. Food, clothes, entertainment, even occupation -- you take whatever you can reasonably get, with a big smile, because next week you might have nothing.With all that as a preamble, I can say without qualification or reservation that WingStop is far and away the most vile, useless restaurant I have ever visited. Flavorless chicken bits served atop a puddle of equally flavorless grease-sauce, and it takes twenty f*cking minutes to fill an order.How in the name of all that is holy does a place that sells buffalo wings as its signature product manage to f*ck it up? It's a singularly simple dish -- fried chicken wings, toss in sauce, serve. They can't even get "toss in sauce" right -- literally stacking uncoated chicken onto a puddle of sauce at the bottom of a basket. And the sauce itself is... it's oil. And maybe red food coloring? Not a hint of heat, or even f*cking vinegar. None.I went once, figured that the experience must have been some kind of outlier, like the kitchen was just having a bad day, then went back a few weeks later, and found it absolutely identical. I'm not going a third time. Lunch shouldn't piss you off.
