Rhode Island is a great place to travel in the summer. Westerly, Newport, Narragansett, and Block Island are all well known tourist stops in the Ocean State. Of course, aside from the beaches, Rhode Island is also known for some unique food items- we’re looking at you coffee milk- as well as gourmet cuisine. Today’s blog takes us to the lesser known city of West Warwick, Rhode Island to Boneheads Wing Bar, a location recently recognized by Esquire magazine. This little bar has great theming, and an important calling card for all of you wing lovers- an eclectic selection of sauces from spicy to sweet.
The restaurant itself is music-themed. The décor includes concert posters, tickets, and even cymbals doubling as light fixtures. The TVs scattered throughout the bar play music videos. We dined to such gems as Nirvana’s cover of “The Man Who Sold the World” and Disturbed’s version of “The Sound of Silence.” The “Boneboard” which includes all of their unique sauces is also music themed. Our favorites included “Zombie” (Cranberry habanero ), “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” (Peach Habanero), “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (Candied bacon and maple), and “Kung Fu Fighting” (Hunan style sticky buffalo). You can also dine on musically themed appetizers. “Picks” are their fried pickles chips and their burger selections include “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” and Frank Sinatra (have it your way!)
Given that Boneheads is a bar, you might be surprised to know that it is a kid-friendly location. They even feature a kids menu for “Lil Rockers.” You can check out their website for their full menu as well as special events such as live music. Be sure to like them on Facebook, too to get information about their second restaurant location in Fall River, MA.
So if you find yourself in the smallest state in the union this summer, make sure to head on over to Boneheads Wing Bar and be sure to let us know your favorite sauce!
