Several years ago, on a quiet afternoon in The Depot Restaurant kitchen, an experiment in the combination of various ingredients and sauces yielded a decidedly different, hot, tangy and altogether taste-bud tantalizing creation.
In an equally creative burst of inspiration, it became known - then and forever - as The Depot's Garbage Wings® sauce.
As popular with long-time patrons as it is with Oneonta's local college population, Garbage Wings® soon became the signature dish and the centerpiece to an evening's fun.
The Depot was already known for its unique preparation of its wings, but since the sauce was introduced, fans have journeyed miles (in some cases, hundreds of miles) to experience the taste.
It wasn't until late in 2012 that owner, Judy Hurlburt began bottling the sauce. But, the reaction has been enthusiastic and overwhelming!
In 2015 the Garbage Wings brand expanded to include our amazing Honey BBQ sauce, Wing Rub, and Hot sauce. We're constantly experimenting with flavors so keep your eyes open for even more incredible sauces yet to come!
Locally produced and bottled, the sauce is currently available in grocery stores in Albany, Sidney and Unadilla, NY, with more locations being added every month.
And now you can buy our Garbage Wings® sauce on-line! (For the ultimate Garbage Wings® fan we have hats and shirts too!)
Oh, and one more thing... The Depot's Garbage Wings® Sauce is an excellent addition to many other dishes.
Be sure to try it with pork, steaks, burgers, seafood and of course, chicken. We have recipes available, but we'd love to hear yours!
