More Wingstops on the way -

Earlier this week, the Dallas-based developers Rahim Kurji and Bidjaan Kassama announced plans to open 20 Wingstop stores in the Baltimore-Washington corridor over he next few years -- four stores are due this year, the developers say.Anyone been to a Wingstop?

There are Wingstops in Gaithersburg and Rockville, but I was wondering what all of you Texans living in Baltimore (and elsewhere) thought of the wings-and-fries only restaurants.

Founded in Richardson, TX, Wingstop specializes in cooked-to-order wings (nine flavors) and hand-cut fries. That's it. But take a look the website; it's a smart concept, and they must print money on Super Bowl Sunday. Troy Aikman is company's national spokesman.

I visited Wingstop frequently when I was in college in Texas. We all enjoyed it, and thought the prices were fair. The fries were great and they offered a good variety of wing flavors, which was especially fortuitous for me, who can't stand buffalo (gag) anything.Hope they still do things well...

I'd like to take this opportunity to espouse my love for Cluck U and its wonderful, wonderful wings n' things.

As a Texas transplant I used to frequent Wing Stop, if I remember correctly the fries are seasoned with cinnamon/sugar and are very good, the wings are fair, better than Buffalo Wild Wings but no Anchor Bar

Well I be durned. I work in Rockville and there is one about a mile from my office. In fact, it is in the same shopping center as the Safeway where I go for my weekly salad bar pilgrimage.
I never paid any attention to the place. Are they really that good?

The only thing that could make this Texan happer than this is if we could get a Jack In The Box over here.

Wingstop just rocks.

FWIW, Troy Aikman is also doing Rent A Center commercials, so, not sure if his plug for Wingstop is a good thing or bad thing.
