Wings, wings and more wings. As the name suggests, The Wing Republic is all about chicken wings. They’re offered ‘buffalo’-style (battered, fried and then sauced or salted) or grilled – but if you’re going the wing route, you can’t beat crispy-fried chicken!
The list of sauces is extensive: BBQ, sweet chilli, dry rub, peri-peri, lemon pepper, teriyaki, peri sacana (not for the faint-hearted), chilli tomato, hot garlic, oriental, smoked BBQ, miso and ginger, and honey sriracha. House recommendations include the honey sriracha and barbeque, but they’re all fantastic. You can’t really go wrong.
If you’re looking to order something other than wings, the ribs are the next best thing. The Wing Republic offers pork and beef ribs, both coming sweet, sticky and slightly charred from the grill – they’re great. Also on offer are saucy chicken, beef and vegetarian burgers and a few rudimentary pastas and salads.
Each main course comes with your choice of side: Sweet potato fries, wedges, shoestring fries or a green salad. The shoestring fries are the way to go: They’re crispy, salty and all kinds of delicious, and just right for mopping up any leftover sauce.
Desserts are limited to a couple of cakes of the day, but rather just fill up on the real reason you’re here.
Choose from a good selection of beers and ciders, some fun, fuss-free cocktails, and house wines by the glass.
The service is laid-back and friendly.
The sign on the wall reading “Wings, beer, sport” pretty much sums it up. It’s a sports bar and casual diner where you can indulge in wings and ribs. The setup is simple, the tables are bare and a little bit wobbly, and there’s always sport on. The attraction is the food, not the décor. There are a number of ‘beer garden’-style tables and benches on the sidewalk for sunny days.
