Hot wings are superior to cold wings for many reasons, such as the ability to reach the outer edges of the stratosphere without succumbing to ice fractals. Fly high with the wings attached to today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of piping hot wings, sandwiches, salads, and nonalcoholic drinks at Alondra Hot Wings. Redeem at one of Alondra's four area locations: on Main Street in Alhambra; on Pine Avenue in Long Beach; on Whittier Boulevard in Montebello; or on Alondra Boulevard in Paramount.
The eponymous hot wings are Alondra's house specialty, fried and served with ranch or blue-cheese dressing, as well as celery and carrot sticks. Choose two sauces to accompany your platter of poignant poultry; options are ranked on a scale from mild to suicide and include such varietals as lemon-pepper, spicy barbecue, maple syrup, and Thai chili. Sate burgeoning grumbles with a six-piece platter served with fries ($7.25), or go deep and gobble up a 50-wing platter ($25.95) and finally prove to friends that commissioning a T-shirt made of wet wipes was a good idea.
Aside from the savory wings, the restaurant features a menu of quality food and atmospheric vapors that are satisfying for families and individuals alike. Fill a torso pouch with a variety of classic, grilled comestibles, such as the Big Apple burger, a large, marinated Angus ground-beef patty crowned with avocado, bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onions, and dressed with mayo and thousand-island dressing ($9.50). They also provide similarly geography-themed New York–style hand-tossed pizza, which can be made to order with whole-wheat dough, ranging in price from $5.95 for a small cheese to $20.99 for the 16-inch, meat-heaped "untouchable" premium pie. End it all with a dessert such as the deep-fried Twinkie ($1.50), a fairground favorite that tempts even the most devout dentists.
