After two decades in the barbecue business, Anthony Yates has boiled his recipe for success down to some pretty simple ingredients: great wings, great sauces, and hot honey biscuits. He founded a whole restaurant based on serving this iconic meal in his hometown of Atlanta. Thus ATL Wings Your Way was born. Business flourished, and soon Mr. Yates began to open franchise locations. He kept the signature dishes consistent, exporting his recipe for lemon-pepper, teriyaki, ranch, and honey-barbecue sauces to each new kitchen. He also sent along his favorite recipes for fried okra and, perhaps most importantly, honey biscuits: sweet, fluffy sides that require no toppings to enjoy.
