All-You-Can-Eat Wing Wednesdays at Double Decker

Imagine 100 of these down your gullet...

Once upon a time I had a friend who really loved his chicken wings.  No matter what fancy restaurant we ate at — Chili’s, Applebee’s, T.G.I. Friday’s — this guy had one goal and one goal only — to tear apart some hot wings.

Then we came up to San Francisco and my friend died.  OF HAPPINESS.  Friends, I know you’ve been wondering, and yes, there IS an all-you-can-eat hot wing joint in the city.  It’s called Double Decker and it’s attached to a Days Inn in Hayes Valley.  Seriously.

But the food is pretty damn tasty.  I’ve had the occasion to have menu items other than wings — cheeseburgers, onion rings, milkshakes (this was during my healthy days, obvi) — and everything is legit.  But the real steal comes every Wednesday from 4pm – 8pm, when Double Decker dares you to put them out of business by eating as many hot wings as you can for $13.95.

Let’s do some math.  Normally, six wings from this place = $5.95, 13 wings from this place = $9.95, and 26 wings from this place = $16.95.  If you’re a true wing fanatic, eating at least 26 wings will be nothing.  The lesson here is that eating a shit ton of wings is imperative to getting your money’s worth.

Also, the wing sauce comes in three degrees of heat:  mild, hot, or inferno.  I love spicy things, but let me give you a tip I wish someone had given me — if you eat, like, 40 inferno wings, they will be spicy and delicious, but know you’ll pay for it by having ring of fire later.  You know what I mean.
