Great wings, Great staff, Good prices. With fish & chip place next door you have lots of meal ideas. I have been back a few times and will only buy take out wings from here
The best takeout we have EVER had
the are the best in the city
Awesome!!! The best wings ever and they are huge.
Just had their wings last night after reading this review and I must say, I was VERY happy about everything, the staff were nice and friendly, the wings were fantastic, and the price cheaper then Wings Up, Wild Wings or Wing It. Their flavour selection is excellant, really enjoyed the Kung Pow! I've definatley found my new wing place!
5 Alarm wings is outstanding. Not your average wing joint....
There are an infitine variety of tastes for you to savour-with over 50 different sauce and dry rub flavours to choose from. A good selection of sides (jalapeno poppers, fried pickle slices, stuffed potato skins) also. The fish and chips place next door (owned by the same people) no doubt is the inspiriation for the fresh hand-cut chips that come with the wings. What's more, the owners use local Ontario chicken (the meatiest and freshest possible), and they make each of their dry rubs from hand-ground spices!
Here is a Facebook comment by my grandson who visited from Florida and who prides himself in being able to hack HOT
Dustin Fletcher having THE spiciest hot wings i've ever had. head's itching like crazy, heart is pounding, and i love it. made in a small wing restaurant in hamiltion, ontario, called 5-alarm
You know what? These wings were actually pretty bad.
I didn't get a chance to taste them at the wingfest, but after hearing an add on y108 i went to go check em out and i gotta tell ya. Nothing special. Didn't even finish my meal. Pretty expensive too.
I would recomend Fool and Flagon or WingsUp over this place anyday
Wow I also heard that radio ad so I gave em a try. I've been back three times. Go figur they were honestly the best Ive tasted since honey's in the 80's
I stopped to get wings after visiting a friend at a nearby hospital. I placed my order after an informative chat with the woman at the counter who helped me select. I told her I was going back out to the car as I was with a friend and I would be back in as she told me the wings would take 15 minutes. Next thing I knew, she was at my car with my order! The cook took an order that was a bit early for pickup and sent it out for me. The people are delightful and so are the wings.
These guys are wing connosseurs. The person who gave a poor vote must not have any taste buds. And WingsUp is more expensive.
the rubbed wings are the best, wouldnot get wings from anywhere else
delicious hand cut fries...orange roughy is delicious
the hottest and tastiest wings in the hamilton area . keep it up !!
this resturant operates very unprofessionally. our order arrived and there was no garlic bread, i double checked the receipt to see if we in fact paid for it, and we did. i then called 5 alarm wings and they said they would send it out right away. an hour goes by, and they still haven't got here. i then called back again and spoke with the manager who tried to accuse me of lying saying that i just want free stuff. once i explained how insulted i was they sent it out with free wings. i was treated like garbage and was told by the owners son, Curtis that his mother, the owner is never in, so i could place my complaint with him. him sounded maybe 15 years old and was the most unprofessional person i had ever dealt with. do yourself a favor and go with a company that is professional. i will do my best to amke sure i tell everyone i know about how terrible the
hi, i was the last person to rate this resturant and when i did i was very upset. a couple of days after the incident i recieved a call from the owner of 5 alarm wings. i was very surprised. she called and apoligized and begged to send me some free food. she was very sorry, you could really tell, she sent us out lots of free food as an apology. it is refreshing to come across a business that is so hung up on customer service. they really do care about the service they provide, and they truely value each customer. if they didn't they wouldn't have done what they dd to make it right. i now have a lot of respect them and the food is awsome too!!!
best at wingfest
Excellent wings. Best take out in the Hammer!
Try the Kung Pao, you wont be disappointed!!
They are my new favorite place. The wings are huge and tasty. Customer service is wonderful.
Found out from my kids flag football league (HMFF) , was little skeptical we always use rockets, these were meatier, the sauce was great and we didn't feel bloated after. By far the best around!!!
Honestly, the wings are good, but, the best wings by far far far is the GREAT CANADIAN WING KING in Stoney Creek. Just amazing blows red rockets and 5 alarm away!
Have to agree with the other comment. Went with my buddies and the wings were okay but, I work in Stoney Creek and get my wings from Wing King and there's just no competition to these guys.
Have to agree with the others. We ordered from 5 alarm after baseball (my friends were all bragging about them). I get Wing King every weeek and sorry but, they're waaaaaaaay better. These are pretty good though just not great
service was good but, wings are nothing to brag about. I love wings and these just don't cut it
nothing special.....heard great things but, really don't know why. Wings were just okay
I think that a lot of the bad reviews on here are written by competitors from other tea shops. You can tell from the wording of them that they are just a bunch of sour grapes.
The others can't compete on the merits of the product, they have to resort to smear campaigns. what a shame. Well we know these are the top tea blends available in the area.
Excellent. We visit often and are never disappointed.
wings nothing special (what the hell is up with the tea comments??)
As someone who consistently ordered from 5 alarm, I have been recently extremely put off. tried to place an order around 11pm on a Saturday. No answer, repeatedly called... nothing. Frustrated by spending a fortune at wings ups I left a comment on their facebook page, mentioning my little problem. My comment was deleted. A while later when I noticed I posted again along the lines of "terrible costumer service, no message or comment back to a complaint" which in turn I was told I was rude and then I was blocked and deleted. My guess if they have some immature teenager running the page, hopefully with out their knowledge. I will not be ordering again at all. Wings up is more costly with less flavors but have amazing costumer service and large juicy wings.
They close at 11 on Saturdays…probably why there was no answer...just saying...
Had wings there last week (Dec 30, 2011) after reading the reviews of how good this place was and boy was I disappointed as well as the 2 friends I had the wings with. Don't mind paying a little extra for the wings if they are good but these are neither good nor big as some people have stated. What I did notice was that the good reviews I read were from 2009 and the award winning wings they post on their website is from 2009. If I had to guess the owners may have sold their business when it was at a good time to sell or this place has gone south rather quickly. Would not recommend to anyone unless you are up for disappointment and overpaying to boot.
I totallt agree. They also rave the best fish. I have had fish and chips paid good money and got the 4.99 fish. the people who work there don't even know what they sell. Anyone knows halibut is not square and neither in haddock. Worst place to go won't even try the wings
Besides the complaint about the halibut all of these complaints are old. I know my halibut and I love it best fish hands down. I eat from here three to five times month. Every one there is nice an if u ask questions they answer very friedly people. I also noticed that management changed in oct 2012 thats when I started going again :) I recommend this to all my friends n family
Brutally slow. Been waiting 20 mins for an order of fish and chips and some wings. Hope it at least tastes good
