Best wings ever. We get wings from Maria’s every NASCAR weekend to go. If We’re within 30+ miles of the place I always stop in for a cold drink and some HOT wings.

Have been going on WGI weekends for years. In the middle of "downtown" and "FANFEST". Friendly patrons and a generally excellent staff. Does get hectic, but, walking distance to several accommodation options. LEAVE THE CAR PARKED!

Maria's was recommended to us for wings. The wings were just ok... They were over-cooked and the garlic wings come with tons of minced garlic which was way too much. Nice atmosphere and friendly stacf
