Many people have already discovered that OIP pizza is very good. But their wings are exceptional. We enjoy regular Buffalo wings, but they’re everywhere now. OIP’s char-grilled wings are a very nice alternative, and they are what we prefer nowadays. Getting twelve for dinner has become a frequent meal for us, and it’s right over in Eastwood Plaza, so we can easily walk over, a big selling point for us. At this time, it’s our favorite “walk-to” Eastwood meal. If we’re especially hungry, we’ll supplement it with pizza slices.
The staff is quite friendly. The lighting is somewhat lurid fluorescence, so it’s definitely not a dating spot. For the sports freaks out there, they have a huge TV. For us, the lighting and TV aren’t our preferred decor, but the dining room is still nice enough that we like eating there.
Don’t just take it from us. My brother is from Buffalo and lives about a mile from the famous Anchor Bar, home of Buffalo wings. After having the OIP wings, he said, “I like these better”.
There are several OIP’s in central NY, and I’ve heard vague rumors that they differ in quality. This can happen with any chain. While we think the Eastwood one is great, I’d be curious to hear more about this.
