Tracy’s Overall Review: These wings were perfectly pleasant and would quell a wing craving, but they weren’t spectacular. Like Scott says “it’s all about the sauce” and the sauce was ok, but not great. I personally prefer the non-drumstick pieces, and in my batch they were almost all drumsticks. They could have also stood to be a tad bit crispier. However, it is definitely worth the trip for the ambiance and pizza.
Scott’s Overall Review: Homeslice was very clean and the service was great. I think you have to keep in mind that the main word here is “Pizzeria”. The wings are kind of a side note on the menu and kinda scared me at first with such flavors as BBQ, Poblano and Thai. The mild and hot flavors where pretty good and a buffalo style wing. The wings where good and the sauce was good but had a certain pepper taste that I couldn’t quite figure out. There was no celery or carrots but the blue cheese was good. Would I go back? Yes. Would I order wings again? Yes. The search still continues though with Homeslice have a pretty much standard wing in taste size and sauce.
Authenticity: They had no extraneous ingredients, but they served them with NO celery.
Wing size: The sizes varied a little, but they averaged out to a decent size.
Sauce: The sauce fell a little flat. They have “hot” and “stupid hot” and neither tasted all that hot. They also have other sauce flavors, but we wont talk about that.
Accouterments: They had bleu cheese dressing and….nothing else. That is a little weird because it leaves you with only the wings themselves to dip into the dressing. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I imagine many Buffalo Wing connoisseurs would find that taboo. At the very least they get a red X for not including celery. The blue cheese dressing was pretty good, we dipped our fries in it.
Atmosphere: The restaurant is located on the hipster stroll Liberties Walk in Northern Liberties. The place itself is pretty awesome, decorated in decoupage and giant tomatoes painted on the walls. The people that work there are very nice. It also has a very cool bathroom. It is really loud in there from the ducts, it was hard to hear each other talk. But where it’s lacking in wing sauce quality it makes up for it in pizza. Their pizza is some of the best in Northern Liberties.
