When I first found out about Legend Larry’s I checked out their website and saw that there is a Bar right near us in Brookfield that is an official Legend Larry’s wing joint. So fresh off the heels of our trip to Legend Larry’s in Sheboygen we made a stop at Bougeys In Brookfield on Sat night.
First off I’d like to say we had a blast at this place from the word go. But lets focus on the wings first.
Just as advertised they had all the authentic LL’s sauces available. Something worth noting is that their price on 100 wings was actually $2 cheaper then LL’s itself. Which is just fine with us considering Bougeys is right in our backyard. They had a “specials” board indicating they have .40 cent wings during Badger games and lucky us, there just happened to be a Badger hockey game on.
Knowing what sauces I liked most from LL’s I ordered 6 Hot and 6 Medium. As good as the DOA’s were I spared myself the pain for the evening. Adam got the same but ordered 6 Scary Larry’s on top of it. I don’t recall exactly what our friends Jer and Jeanna ordered but I know she got a BBQ flavor and she said it was actually kind of spicy. BBQ flavors still don’t do it for me.
I personally thought the wings were just as good as they were at LL’s. The crispiness was about the same. Maybe a tad less crispy but just slightly. The one thing I personally liked was that they put on a lot of sauce! I love my wings saucy and they were much saucier at Bougeys then they were at LL’s. They scored some extra points from me there. 20 Napkins later…
The bar itself was also quit nice. The kicker was that they have .50 cent pool! I can’t think of a single place anymore that has pool that cheap. We ended up staying later then expected, met some new people, and I chatted with the owner for a few min as well as introduced myself to his fiance.
Over-all the experience was great. I’m a fan of small “corner bars” with good food and this place fit the bill. If I want LL’s sauce this is the place I’ll go. It’s close, the prices were good (better then LL’s in fact), and the people were great. There was only one hitch with the night. I brought my camera but forgot the battery in the charger. So I only have poor quality cell phone pics of the night.
Atmosphere: 9 Nice people, and cheap pool. Can’t beat that.
Service: 9 You have to order your wings at the bar, but the bartenders will bring them out to you. The Bartenders were on the ball all night as well.
Sauces: 8 Just as good as Legend Larry’s so definitely a crowd pleaser.
Wing Doneness: 8. Just right.
Sauce to Wing Ratio: High! Saucier then Legend Larry’s. Huge bonus.
Over-All Score: 8.5. We will definitely be back.
