At Steve The Southern Gourmet Restaurant and Catering, chefs Steve Graham and Yanci Evans want diners to feel like they're at grandma's house. To accomplish that, they went to straight to the source—they visited the kitchens of grandmas all around the area, studying techniques for making dishes from smothered pork chops to fried catfish. And like their grandmotherly mentors, they eschew anything prepackaged, using only fresh ingredients such as wild mushrooms and ground Angus beef. Their dedication to southern cuisine extends to the beverages, from the sweet tea brewed with sugar to the Carolina muscadine wines. The chefs keep the kitchen warm daily at the restaurant's large, airy dining space, as well as take it on the road to cater events such as weddings and eating-contest after-parties.
Customers won't find any heat lamps within The Wing Co.'s kitchen, but that doesn't mean their made-to-order wings aren't hot. Instead, the increased temperatures come from nine sauces, which run the gamut from sweet chili to Cajun to teriyaki. However, the cooks aren’t content to just spread sauce on wings. Upon customer request, they can also splash the tasty liquids over salads, riblets, and sandwiches—including their signature wing burger.
Matching the wings’ heat is the dining room's firefighter-themed decor. Hardhats and helmets double as lampshades, while firefighter boots, tanks, and clothing hang from the walls, in case of an emergency costume party.
