McGee's is just what you'd expect out of a Lincoln Park sports bar. By that I mean that there are a ton of TVs, cute waitresses, drunk bros, and they always run some kind of "you won a raffle and get some mediocre drink special" deal.
On Tuesday nights the deal is something like $0.25 wings and $7.50 domestic pitchers. The wings are a regular size too. It's not like you get some kind of mutant baby chicken wing like the ones Ricky set a record eating at Brother's on 10 cent wing night.
I'd been to McGee's a bunch of times, but I'd never tried the food before this week. I was mostly tempted because of how cheap it was, and because I read some positive reviews on blogs that specialize in greasy stuff (wings, dogs, beef, etc). Specs and I ordered 10 regular buffalo wings and 10 extra spicy buffalo wings.
The Regular Buffalo Wings
The Extra Spicy Buffalo Wings
I love spicy foods, and I took the waitresses friendly warning as somewhat of a challenge. I've had hotter wings, but these lived up to their name. The regular wings had a pretty nice sauce, but they could've been richer. Not all of my wings were hot (temperature-wise) which was disappointing. At least what they lacked in flavor they made up in presentation. They have other food too. Ricky swore by his order of fish tacos and the professor hated his burger.
The first mark against McGee's is that it's an Ohio State bar. The wings are very cheap as is the beer. Still, it's not really all that good and the spicy wings do a mean job of adding heartburn to a hangover. Let's just say I wouldn't suggest giving away any memorabilia or autographs for these wings. I'm giving McGee's 1.5 out of 5 Pearls.
