“The wings at Tommy Want Wingy have developed an almost cult-like following in Austin, with people clamoring for their distinct, frenched chicken wings. There’s no debate about flats vs drums here - all the wings start as a drumette before being cleaned into a lollipop-like shape with a little bone handle. It makes them easy to eat, which probably comes in handy when you’ve got the munchies after a long night out, given their original Rainey St location. They’ve since expanded, now with a second location at Cosmic Coffee near 290 and South Congress.” - Adele Hazan
“Tommy Want Wingy, from the name alone, brings the “Keep Austin Weird” slogan to life. It’s a favorite food truck in Austin. They serve up delicious Chicken with sauces such as “Ranch on Fire” and “Holy Schnikes”
“There's no second guessing, this chicken is pretty much wing perfection.” - Yvonne Nava
“At one time, Tommy Want Wingy was an establishment that claimed to be South Austin's coolest food trailer. These days they're serving up wings on both Rainey St. and at Cosmic Coffee & Beer Garden, but both food trailers still boast the same delicious made-to-order chicken lollipops and friendly attitude. Their lollipops—aka chicken wings—are available in flavors like Sweet Chile, Ranch on Fire, Spicy Pineapple and more. Having tried their food numerous times ourselves, we can unequivocally state that we want Tommy Want Wingy." - Arielle Avila
"If you're looking to up your chicken wing game, there's a spot downtown you'll most definitely want to try. Tommy Want Wingy is located next to Lustre Pearl off Rainey Street. The wings are tasty and the story behind this business is even better.
"We put a lot of love into our work and you can tell when it comes out," said owner Neil O'Quinn. Neil and his brother, Shawn, had a love of chicken wings and a bright idea.
"We were just making them at home all the time, we used to live together, making them for our friends and family every weekend and said, 'Well, lets try it out, see if we can make this a business,'" said co-owner Shawn.
But their business needed a catchy name to tack onto the side of their bright-yellow food truck. Growing up in El Paso, the O'Quinn brothers remember watching a lot of VHS tapes and they really liked the movie "Tommy Boy." "When we were thinking of names for it, it just hit, it stuck. That was it," said Neil."
