Chics N Wings, McLean, VA

8119 Watson Street
McLean, VA
(703) 847-2442

Mediocre - that's the food. Poor - that's the service. Chics N Wings is definitely a place to keep driving past, or stop at Dunkin Donuts next door, if you want to walk out satisfied. We ordered the Wing Sampler Platter and the Philly Cheesesteak. Not only did the order take ages to come out to us, when the place was nearly empty, neither the wings nor the sandwich were good. It was nearly impossible to get anyone to wait on us. But if the food was good, it would be worth it to suffer through the service. It wasn't. If you want wings, or anything else, don't go here.
