Where do you go when you’re in the mood for chicken wings? If you’re from West Virginia, you probably go to the Drover’s Inn in Wellsburg. It’s been around for a long time – the building is on the National Register of Historic Places – but that only adds charm to the experience of chowing down on the best wings you’ve ever tasted!

Tucked away outside Wellsburg, West Virginia is a historic brick building, the Drover’s Inn Restaurant and Tavern. Ask anyone – you won’t find better wings anywhere else. Drover’s Inn makes them extra crispy and extra flavorful, with tons of flavor options: Mild, Medium, Hot, Suicidal, Atomic, Hurt Me, Honey BBQ, Buffalo Garlic, Sweet Hot Oriental, Butter Garlic, Garlic Parmesan.

    I love this place. The cellar is my favorite. The wings are delicious and so is the shrimp basket. Even the waffle fries are amazing. I highly recommend getting them with cheese and bacon. This place is a whole experience.

    A great place with great food. I loved the feeling of being in an old inn and dining with friends. I really noticed the wood trim on the doors and window frames. Our server was great, she was knowledgeable on gluten free options, which I appreciate. I got wings and cheesy steak fries. They were delicious. The wings were perfectly done and just the right size. They were so good they were even still tasty days later, reheated in my hot logic. Would definitely go here again.

    Been going to drovers for years. I love the fact that they have gluten-free food there for those who have gluten allergies. The wings are deep fried in dedicated fryers. You can also have steak fries with chili and cheese, steak or chicken salads, the salmon dinner, and several other items.

    We always stop during our Memorial Day trip! Love eating in the basement! Wings are plenty and the waffle fries seasoned to perfection

    Today was our first visit and we absolutely loved it. I had the chicken wings and the fried chicken. They were perfectly prepared!!! The staff was great and the location is rich in beauty (if you enjoy historic places). I highly recommend this place to eat as well as a quick tour. 😊
