Georgetown Wing Co. soft-opens in Georgetown this week

Georgetown Wing Co. had its soft opening this Sunday on the second level of 3291 M Street above Crêpe Amour, and it looks like all are welcome. Commence the great wing wars of Georgetown!

But not really. Glancing at Wing Co.’s menu, they offer pretty different fare from Wingo’s—like ‘mango caliente’ or chili lime sauce on your wings. (Sorry, I only know ‘mild,’ ‘abusive,’ and ‘nuclear.’ Can we get a conversion chart?) To celebrate their opening week, they’re having several beer specials, with $1.50 Miller Lite & Yuengling bottles and $3 Sam Adams Seasonal and Sierra Nevada bottles. This Friday, they’re even kicking off a brunch menu when the World Cup starts. Mimosas and crêpes! At a wing joint!

Still, Vox prays that this leads to an epic face-off between Wing Co. and Wingo’s, with escalating deals and specials for students à la Qdoba and Chipotle. We’re just salivating at the thought of half price Wing Wednesdays and we have lots of clever lines at the ready, like “All’s fair in love and wings.”

7 Comments on “Georgetown Wing Co. soft-opens in Georgetown this week

  1. Georgetown has the worst dearth of creative naming I’ve ever seen. “Georgetown Cupcake.” “Georgetown Wing Co.” It feels like 1984.

  2. Anyone else think they chose the name so as to create name confusion over Wing Co. vs. Wingo’s? If you say “co” instead of “company,” they are very difficult to distinguish. The first attack of the hopefully fierce battle between these two?

  3. Wingo’s is terrible. Rhino wings are much better.

  6. I was drawn to DC wing company with the hopes of finally finding a wide selection of big meaty spicey wings. When it was all said and done I was out 35 bucks and pissed off. I understand they are a new resturant and still have some kinks to work out but I came in for the promise of good wings and happy hour. Our waiter informed us that it was about five minutes until happy hour so we needed to wait till his manager got there at four before we could get happy hour. Fine I’ll wait five minutes for a beer, I know I’ve waited longer in Georgetown for a beer. So we ordered our wings. About 15 minutes later we were informed that because their manger hadn’t showed up we couldn’t get a beer. Never mind happy hour. We were not informed that we couldn’t get beers at all and even after complaining they made no attempt to rectify the situation. The management lied to us and after we complained told us “tough luck” and refused to try anything to help after a good 15 minutes of arguing with an incompetent manager. Generally just another poorly managed restaurant in Georgetown.
