Nothing excites me more than new and exciting wing sauces and this past weekend my taste buds were treated to some exotic sauces at South Tampa’s Wings Gone Wild. This local favorite has been on my radar for the last three months and with a recently revamped menu, I was excited to spend my Saturday afternoon eating wings and watching college football. With a name like Wings Gone Wild, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.
Located at 3114 W. Bay to Bay Blvd in the heart of Palma Ceia, Wings Gone Wild is a local watering hole that serves some of the best damn bar food in Tampa, period. With menu selections like Micro Southern Fried Chicken and Waffles with Bourbon Spike Maple Syrup, Triggerfish Tacos, and Steak Frites, their menu truly is one of the best I have seen in my travels. As much as I wanted to try some of their signature items, I had to focus on wings.
With a nice selection of wing sauces including classics like Mild, Medium and Hot Buffalo, I found myself drawn to two flavors that I just had to try: Mango Habanero and Honey Sriracha. I ordered ten each, bone in, and sipped on a cold beverage while waiting for my wings.
I chatted with the two bartenders and we discussed some of their favorites on the menu. Hands down, they both raved about my wing sauce selections. I had a feeling this was going to be a “wingtastic” experience and I was right. As the wings were brought out, I was really drawn to the intoxicating scent of the duo of sauces. Both were spicy and had amazing flavor combinations. I liked them both but my favorite of the two was the Honey Sriracha.
Wings are available bone in or out and in orders of 10, 15, 20, 25 and 50. Sauce flavors include:
- Mild Buffalo
- Medium Buffalo
- Hot Buffalo
- Honey BBQ
- Cajun Rubbed
- Mango Habanero
- Garlic Parmesan
- Honey Sriracha

Just when I thought my afternoon could not get any better, one of the servers presented us with a plate for freshly made donuts. Donuts in a sports bar? YES PLEASE! Fresh and hot, they were dusted with cinnamon and sugar and drizzled with warm caramel. These donuts were better than most you will find at local donut shops.
I had such a blast at Wings Gone Wild and can’t wait to back and taste my way through their fantastic menu. From the excellent service to the delicious food, Wings Gone Wild is truly a gem in the Palma Ceia neighborhood. I am so glad I finally made it in and highly encourage you so stop by and discover what awesome bar food should taste like.
