Drover’s Inn. Ah, Drover’s. Quite a reputation around the area to say the least. Their slogan sums that up. “If you haven’t tried our wings then you don’t know what you’ve been missing.” So, how do they rate under review?
Well, the wings themselves were about as close to perfect as you can get. They are consistently large and crispy. This time was no exception. I ordered a large order which is a measured 2 lbs. You may get anywhere from 14-18 wings in a large order. A small order is a measured 1 lb., which ends up at about 7-9 “jumbo” sized wings. The menu says “jumbo” wings and Drover’s certainly backs up that claim. The wings were large. They were perfectly crispy on the outside while still retaining the juicy goodness on the inside. They also served a nice mixture of wings and drums. Whatever they’re doing…they’re doing it right. Even the wings at the bottom of the pile were crispy after sitting in the extra sauce.

Let me sum up my review by saying…“If you haven’t tried Drover’s wings then you don’t know what you’ve been missing.” The slogan is true…which you have to appreciate nowadays. Drover’s is living up to their promise. If you haven’t tried their wings…you must. And if you have already tried Drover’s wings…then you don’t need me to tell you how great they are, do you?
Bottom line? Go. Go now! Get some wings! I don’t know if it gets much better than this. Authentic, HUGE, bone-in, no breading, deep fried, crispy from start to finish.
