I needed to get that taste of the boneless wings at Atomic Wings out of my mind. Luckily we were up in Kingston, in the Hudson Valley, so we had the chance to visit Planet Wings. I wrote about the place two years ago: they don't make the best boneless wings I've ever had, but they make some very good ones.
"Do people really come to a place called Planet Wings and order salad?" I asked Elizabeth.
Apparently yes: the next customers were a young couple who both ordered salads.
We were both really hungry so we got an order of fries to accompany our three orders of boneless wings. We wished we hadn't for two reasons: 1) predictably, it was too much food, and 2) the fries sucked. They were overcooked, almost charred in several spots.
Elizabeth loves the honey mustard wings. I think the honey mustard is very tasty, but I don't really like it on the wings, if that makes any sense. I think it would be good as a dip, but overall I find it too sweet to be soaking the chicken pieces.
Next up were the Jamaican Jerk wings. We both really liked this flavor: full of spices but not too hot.
I also saw a "new" flavor on the menu: Hot Gourmet Garlic. I definitely had to try that. It had a good amount of heat - both this and the Jamaican Jerk had two chili peppers next to them on the menu, but this was definitely the hotter of the two - but not much garlic flavor. It's good, but not as good as the Jamaican.
On my next trip to Planet Wings I will be trying the Cajun flavor (because I love Cajun spices) and the Leapin' Lizard (because I'm curious what the hell that is). It may take me another two years to make it back, but I'm okay with that. Planet Wings is good; I wouldn't call it great. I'll take it over Atomic Wings any day, though.
