Best Bites | This week I made a trip out to WingTime located at 6572 N. Decatur Blvd. I’ll admit it was a little bit of a drive for me, but if you’re lucky enough to live in the area, I’m jealous. They have a nice variety of sauces along with several dry rub flavors. Most wing places here in Vegas don’t offer dry rub seasoning so that got my attention right away.
