Cosmos Bar & Grill is one of the few restuarants in town to offer breaded chicken wings and none make them as well as Cosmos does. Cosmos offers the standard variety of flavors, but the one really worth checking out is their “Cosmic” flavor. “Cosmic” is drier than the other sauces and comes in a red hue, the perfect warning for anyone bold enough to try it. Unlike other sauces where they just try to blow you away with heat and no flavor, “Cosmic” balances a great deal of heat with abundent flavor.
Of the other flavors I tried, “Hot” was the most appealing. While not as hot as “Cosmic,” “Hot” blended more flavor in lieu of the heat. But, don’t get caught off guard, there is a delayed kick that can creep up on you. “Mild” was the last flavor I tried. It had decent flavor and no kick to it. So, it wasn’t really what I was looking for, but there are plenty of people who prefer it that way.
Cosmos’ wing night is Wednesdays and wings cost $.45 per wing when you buy a drink. Wings cost $.55 without a beverage or for take out. When it’s not Wednesday, wings are still available, just for a slightly higher price. The prices have increased over the years, but that’s accountable to rising prices in the food sector.
And, for the size of the wings, the price is more than fair. Of the wings I’ve had in Cookeville, Cosmos’ are definitely on the larger side.
On top of the wing special, Wednesday night is $.50 off Mexican beers in addition to any other specials running.
The restaurant isn’t the newest building, but great service will make you feel at home regardless. Cosmos is a great place for the wing newbie and the connoisseur alike. I highly reccomend a stop by Cosmos whether it’s wing night or not.
Cosmos is just past Tech, located at 931 Shipley Road. The easiest way to find the restaurant is just follow Willow Avenue past the Hooper Eblen Center. Cosmos will be on your left after a short drive.
You can also find Cosmos on Facebook or reach them at (931)372-2081.
