Austin's in JoCo/KC-- Stay away!

MA | Oct 31, 2004 11:06 AM

I was told that the wings here were pretty good, so me and the guys decided to go check it out.

Upon being seated, we were given the menus, but our waitress didn't show up for almost 10 minutes to take our drink orders. It seemed like the table in front of us was filled with her friends, and she was giving them more attention. Very unprofessional.

We ordered the wings as an appetizer, and then placed food orders. By this time, our water/drinks had run out, and the waitress indicated she would be bringing us some refills. No refills came, and after 5 minutes, I had to flag down another server.

The food itself was passable. Nothing outstanding. However, by the time we were almost done, we asked our waitress where the wings (our APPETIZER) were. She went and checked, and then came back and told us that they had been sent to another table. We waited for another 10 minutes.

When the wings finally reached, they were cold and tasteless. It's almost as if she just took them off the other table and brought thme over. To make things worse, Austin's uses Frank's Hot Sauce, and doesn't make their own. What a disappointment.

So overall, our service was lousy and the food was mediocre. I would say save your money and go somewhere else for wings.

Speaking of which, if anyone can recommend a good place to get wings in the KC area, please let me know. It doesn't matter if it's in JoCo or Independence. I just need a place to go to.
