All I ever hear is how Hacketts has the best hot wings ever. We decided to jump on the bandwagon of support local businesses since the Covid shutdown. We thought it would make a fun Saturday night out. We walked in and got seated immediately...in the dining room. It was so empty and it really had a lonely feel to it. No atmosphere what so ever! It was only 8 pm on a Saturday night and the bar area was lively...but the dining room not so much. The floor had that greasy feel, like where your shoe slides when you walk at a fast food restaurant. Got seated, drinks came fast. We ordered an appetizer and our waitress wanted to take our order immediately. We asked for her to go ahead and put the app in because we were still looking the menu over. I’ve never had a waitress that didn’t put the appetizer in first. Food came quick. We ordered fried green beans for the appetizer. It was a tiny basket. Looked more like a side order. Then our wings came and they were so small! My 6 year old even said they were tough with no meat! He wasn’t wrong!! He loves wings and he only ate one. My husband said his wings were tough as well. I ordered the boneless and it tasted like microwaved chicken. Tough and crispy but not crispy in a good way. The sauce and seasoning tasted pretty mediocre and I ordered the hot. I get the same sauce at sonic on their boneless wings. Our celery and carrots came tossed with the wing sauce on it. I’ve never seen that before. It was terrible! Fries were average. My daughter ordered Mac and Cheese and corn nuggets and both came out cold. In their defense we didn’t complain...one because we were literally alone in the room and two because we had decided not to come back by the time our waitress finally came back. I don’t know if we came on an off night or what but we won’t be coming back.More

We did the dinning side and it was super smoky and the wings came out cold/warm. Took 30 minute to order food and there were only 6 tables in the entire room with two waitresses. Bar area looked fun, but we were all very disappointed...with the food. Will choose another option when we drive back through.More

I used to go to the original location small hole in the wall on the corner !!! Floyd would talk to us let us try new stuff and the wings were huge !!! It has went so far south since then I hate to go...there cause cost is up and wings are tiny !!! Still has the best flavors around but the wings and cost is outrageously high and small !! So I came in and ordered 20 wings all flats and that was 4 extra dollars and two other flavors of sauce small half full containers that were all a dollar each and was never told that’s extra or that’s extra !!! So sad to see it this wayMore

I have been here 3 times and always sit at the bar. The bartender (Chelsey?) was very attentive and did a superb job. You have 3 TVs behind the bar with the various sports flavor to view. I have had the pork chop sandwich (fair-won't...do again) and wings. I prefer dry rub and the cajun and seasoned wings are really good--but they are so small--it is a lot of work to get whatever meat you can salvage off the bones. I will go back as it is one of the few sports bar environments I have found--but will probably stop and eat elsewhere first.More

The service was great from start to finish. They had a great variety of wings and drinks available. The sweet potato tots were delicious. I just wish that they had a better variety of side dishes.

Whether you like dry rubs or wet, this is the place to go for amazing wings! Choose from dining in via the sports section or the quieter space without all the TV's. Or do a take out! If you do dine in, try some of...their signature drinks....you can't go wrong. A little side note, my British son-in-law must have their food when he comes to visit me.More

Brandon William's Wings are amazing. They are a combination of Hot & Honey & Lemon Pepper. The best wings I have ever had and I love wings. Fried Pickle Spears are fantastic. Love pickle spears over pickle chips. If you are in Joplin this is...a must stop!!!More

The seasoned wings are the best but the other seasonings are just as good. They have a sports bar & a dining area so you have your pick.

I read the history and saw this was the 1st wing place in town. With only BWW as competition, the city needs some new blood. Wings were really small. Sides were disappointing. I have eaten a lot of wings in my time and won't go...back here any time soon.More
