Reed Market Pub

A friend of mine keeps telling me to try the wings at the Reed Market Pub every time I blog about the Best Hot Wings in Bend. Well, I tried them and I lost respect for said friend.

Before I go off on the some of the worst wings in Bend I will say that there are some good things going on at the Reed Market Pub.

1) Excellent beer selection
2) Free peanuts in the shell that you throw on the ground
3) Video games and pool tables

If I was going to go out and drink beer while playing pool, I would head to the Reed Market Pub I guess. Seems fun and all but I wouldn’t eat anything. After watching the bartender/waitress make a pizza, then make some change for a guy gambling on the lotto machines, and then make a sandwich without washing her hands or using gloves, I decided on something cooked or fried from the back where I can’t see the dirt. I’d just rather not know.


The wings were flavorless and seemed to be identical to those purchased from Costco. They were hot as hell (temperature wise) which I was hoping killed off anything that would make me ill. After the wings and beer I felt gross for the rest of the day. I did catch up on some reading later that evening while visiting the bathroom many times.

Jen, I don’t think you know what you’re talking about when it comes to wings. Go to BBC or Deschutes for some real wings, even though they don’t serve the wingettes.

I think they changed their wings. They haven’t been as good the last few times for me either. But since you don’t go to the East Side Of Bend for anything I figured you’d never notice the difference. And for the record you asked where you could find the flats and drumettes… I never said they were the best in town. ;-)

I’d watch out for their peanuts too. In fact that might be the actual culprit to blame for your late night reading.

I like the ones at Hardy’s, but the ones at Deschutes taste “off” to me for some reason. Guess my tastebuds aren’t as refined as yours!

Maybe you should have had more beers first. ;)

We visited the Deschutes Brewery while visiting Bend and loved it! Living in Sacramento, Anderson Valley Brewing has always been our favorite. Our trip to Bend and the Deschutes Brewery has made us big fans!

I love the “In Search of the Best Hot Wings” idea! I think I’ll begin my search here in Sacramento, California.

Looking forward to our next trip to Bend…and your “Best Hot Wings”!

You’re blog is a bigger joke than the food at reed pub. It’s a fucking dive bar not a restaurant! No fryer, no grill… You obviously have NOT worked in the industry you blog about. You’re a fucking kook, go back to Cali
