Wow. That's steep

They had the mist on over the patio to combat the heat. Wings had that classic Buffalo crunch without the batter. I enjoyed the garlic parmesan + chipotle-bbq. Prices are on the high side, around $12.99 for 6 wings, or $15.99 for 8 wings. At $2/wing that's pretty steep vs. local comps., but I guess they're going for that premium Buffalo-wing novelty positioning. They a few daily deals on, like half-price pizza on Mondays. However, with many other good wing spots around town (Morty's, McCabe's, WingsUp, etc.) I wonder how they'll fare? Regardless, it's a decent entertainment/patio addition to the Beertown/McCabe's area of uptown.

Wow. At that price, they better be a lot bigger than Morty's wings (which I doubt). I think I will pass.

That was my thought too. I'll likely still check them out once though.

How big are they kidgibnick?

I would say smaller than Morty's or Moose (breading also adds to the size).
This menu appears slightly different from what I saw, indicating 6, 8, 12 wings, etc.

Still a decent patio for pints though Wink

I would say that that's a big part of the appeal, their location is fantastic.

Just saw a post on /r/waterloo saying all of the Zoup locations in London, Kitchener and Waterloo are closed as of today. The poster is claiming to be a manager at one of the locations and says they were only notified this morning.

Same franchisee maybe?

That's what I suspect. They say the Cambridge location remains open, so presumably that has a different owner. Hopefully something can be sorted out, because they're a great healthy fast food option.
