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.

    On a scale of romances to documentaries, Drover's Inn is a bodice-ripper romance. Tucked away off of Washington Pike, it's easy to miss, but it's definitely something to turnaround for. Parking is plentiful, and our group was seated quickly. While our local friends encouraged us to order the wings, I deviated for the baby back ribs, and I honestly should have stuck with the wings! The baby back ribs were dry and only saved by the sauce. Drover's Inn is so charming, and I hope to return to try the wings!

    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. 😊

    AMAZING FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE I moved from the Philadelphia area to WV about 2 years ago and have been missing some of my favorite food from the town I was from. Fried chicken and great wings were definitely something I was searching for but also somewhere where the customer service matched the foods quality. Well this is the place. I got the fried chicken which was amazing and probably better than my goto spot from back home. The wings were amazing and really hit the spot. The baked beans that came with my chicken were spicy which I loved and the coleslaw was amazing also. I will be back again and again and again, This will be reviewed on my fb page also which is the great food debacle!

    Nice place out of the way, great food. The service has always been good. This place is always jam packed every time we come here. The food is delicious we always get the wings. We usually get enough to take some home for the next day. We really enjoy coming here. It's not to bad of a drive to get here. Do yourself a favor and go check it out your stomach will thank you.

    The food is always fantastic, the service last time we went was not great. We sat in the bar area down stairs and ordered drinks as soon as we sat down along with our food. It took the bartender 37 mins to bring our drinks to the table she walked around with the tray of our drinks took them outside back inside then back outside 3 times going past our table before giving them to us. Any time we needed something wether it was a refill or condiments or check it took a good 10-15 minutes. The food Is always great and it's a very unique spot to visit me and my wife enjoy riding the motorcycle out there with friends.
