As you’re no doubt aware by now, I’m currently boots on the ground at Helix Esports in Foxboro Massachusetts, headquarters for Oxygen Esports and the CDL’s Boston Breach. Their Challengers event is underway as I type, but I’ve been told the true star of the show inside these four walls resides at Bytes Restaurant – Helix Esports’ concessions stand. “Best wings in Foxboro” adorn the walls above the ordering station, and Helix’s general manager, Geoff, tells me that the wings are hand seasoned, slowly smoked daily, and never frozen or fried.
Without hesitation, I stepped up to the counter at Bytes and placed my order, full video review below in case you don’t feel like reading.
I know what you’re thinking, and yes – that is a real tan. I was in the Cape all week but you wouldn’t know it from the banger blogs that have been getting cranked out. And yes, the grays are shining through like crazy. The gaming journalist life is a hard road, but someone’s gotta walk it. Now on to the wings.
The flavors I chose were honey hot and the house dry rub. Helix easily offers over a dozen sauces and rubs to choose from, but I figured a flavor that was the “house” one as well as one I knew and loved would be a good place to start. The honey hots were very tasty, but I could’ve used some more heat on them. The dry rub was VERY impressive, especially coming from someone who attempts to smoke wings on their own from time to time. I know this can’t be easy to do en masse, but the texture and flavor of the wings were phenomenal.
Overall, the wings at Helix Esports are not to be missed if you’re in the area. If you’re coming to visit Foxboro or Helix Esports, this is a destination plate. Especially considering all the food joints in Patriot Place (there’s like a million), you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you let these fly under your radar.
