Editor’s Note: Last year, Michael and Nicole Borrell began reviewing Lebanon Valley’s restaurants and eating attractions as the Lebanon Valley Food Critics. Since then, the couple has aimed to offer unbiased reviews of the eating and drinking establishments the Lebanon Valley has to offer. LebTown is pleased to be partnering with LVFC to share these reviews with our readers. Bon appétit!
Welcome to the first season of our highly anticipated Lebanon Valley “Wing Wars.” Eight entrants from four regions of the Valley will compete, bracket style, to be declared the winner of Best Wing in The Valley.
Our judgement will be based upon several factors including: wing sauce/rub flavor, size of wing, how they’re cooked, presentation, and critic impression.
We finish in the north region pitting Moose’s LZ in Lickdale against The Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel. And joining us tonight we had Howie from Stay Tuned With Troy and Howie along with his wife to offer their take on the north region wings.

Located along Fisher Avenue, just off the grounds of Fort Indiantown Gap, Moose’s offers a small wing menu. They do not have any wing night specials. They offer a dozen jumbo wings for market price, which is $14.99. Boneless wings are offered for $9.99.
Tonight, we ordered four dozen wings (two dozen traditional and two dozen boneless). Our flavors of choice were Moose’s House Special, Creamy Garlic, Hot BBQ, and Butter Garlic.
The wings themselves were billed as jumbo and that they were. An order is more than enough for a meal. They were lacking the crunch on the outside but were good and juicy throughout. The boneless wings were large, breaded pieces drizzled with sauce.
Our traditional wings were tossed in some tasty flavors. The MHS was strong on the sweet, low on the heat. The Hot BBQ was a near perfect mix of the two. When mixed like that, it’s one of our go-to favorites. We wish they had some more varieties to choose from.
Our final impression:
- Jumbo wings to fill you up.
- Tasty sauces, hot BBQ was a great mix.
- Limited sauce selection.
- No wing night specials.
Winner: Congratulations to Fredericksburg Eagle Hotel for coming out of the North Region. The Eagle was selected for its various wing flavor options, AYCE wing special, and the quality of the fried wing. It was a close match up, but they will have their wings challenged in the next round.
