Mug Shotz Sports Bar & Grill

This place is a hidden gem.  If you can get past the dark parking lot and through the doors you will find a sports pub with dart boards, big screen T.V.s and Calgary Flames swag on every wall.  I have lived in Calgary all my life, and have never heard of this place until a friend ate there and just could not stop raving about the food.  After verifying his testimony against the reviews found on one of my favourite websites, the ratings alone convinced me that it was worth a try.  I was forewarned that this place was a hole in the wall hidden deep within Calgary's industrial area, but I knew from experience that the best dishes can be found in places where you least expect.
Mug Shotz, without a doubt lived up to it's name for their wings. Fried to perfection, the flavours were not only in the sauce but embedded in each bite of the chicken wing.  Every flavour we tried was unique on it's own.  My favourite was the Mug Shots salt and pepper which consists of an exquisite combination of flavours resembling Chinese salt and pepper squid.  Everything from onions and chilli flakes to julienne red and green peppers, a definite must-try for your first time. They have been rated the best wings in Calgary for a reason, try it out, you won't regret it.
