"Once upon a time a bearded man had a dream, a dream to make the best chicken wings on the planet," begins the Wing Nutz story. That man spent years experimenting with sauces and techniques, and many would agree that he achieved that dream with his wings?which are crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, and coated in sauces such as apricot teriyaki and southern honey barbecue.
At various Wing Nutz franchises, chefs follow his same wing recipe, using cage- and hormone-free meat that is never frozen, and then baking, never frying, the wings. They also whip up fall-off-the-bone hog wings (better known as pork ribs, eaten wing-style) and lighter options, such as smoked salmon wraps and salads. The restaurant's own line of brews, Nut Job Beers, stands ready cool mouths set aflame by one of the spicier sauces.
