Wing man finds a stationary home

By: Sydney Wells

When co-workers and Facebook friends start talking about a great chicken wing place, you must check it out. So, I did. The place is called Wing Man. I’ve heard that name before but thought it was a food truck that did catering for public or private events. I was partially correct. They do still have their food truck and catering business but about six months ago they also opened the restaurant in Cotati. It’s located at 101 E. Cotati Ave.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. Not a large interior, the vibe is intimate like a local pub reminiscent of “Cheers,” where old friends meet for a bite to eat and a drink. And they do have a wide variety of brews and wines to select from. Closed on Mondays; Tuesday through Thursday they serve from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, they extend their hours from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Finally, on Sunday they’re open from noon until 9 p.m. If you’re not in the mood to hang out or go out, they have both takeout and delivery service. You can find their menu online.

On the day of my dinner time visit, I found the staff friendly and the service good. I took my time to review the menu and didn’t feel rushed at all. In addition to serving chicken wings, you can also get either a chicken tender or pulled pork sandwich. According to my friend, sometimes non-menu specials are available too. She said they had ribs on special the last time she went. I was tempted by the pulled pork sandwich, but I came to check out the wings, so I did. 

My choices were either their signature bone-in crispy, boneless breaded chicken tenders, or Tempura Cauliflower Vegan wings. After selecting the type I wanted, I then had to choose from ten different types of flavors. They ranged from the super spicy “Orange Fury” or “Double-Dog Dare You,” to the milder flavors such as “Clover Honey Dijon Mustard” or the “Smoky Bones” sweet and smoky BBQ. I went boneless with a mild sauce. You also choose your size. The “Junior” size is nine dollars for 6-8 pieces. The “Champ” is between 12-14 pieces and costs $16. Throwing a party or feeding a hungry bunch, the “King” gives you 24-28 pieces for $28. I took the “Junior.” They came with celery and carrots and a choice of dressings for dipping your wings. Your choice of sides includes three types of fries, a house made Cole Slaw and sweet-spicy pickles. Added cost was three to seven dollars depending on selection and size.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see The Community Voice newspaper available for patrons to read while waiting for their meals. And my wait wasn’t long. Less than fifteen minutes later I had my meal to eat. Everything was delicious! My meal matched my expectations from reading the online reviews and listening to my friends rave about this place. If you’re in the area, this place is well worth checking out. I know I’ll be back. And to my friends – Thanks for the Tip!
