Despite chilly weather, there was a line of customers bundled up, ready for their afternoon fix of chicken wings last week at the recently opened Empire Wingz on Burbank Drive.
The local wing shop, 225 reports in a new restaurant feature, opened its second location in November at the former Wing Snack. It has walk-up windows enabling customers to place and pick-up orders as well as a few wooden benches to sit.
The menu includes boneless and traditional wings in buffalo, lemon pepper, spicy lemon pepper, honey barbecue, spicy barbecue, spicy honey barbecue, garlic Parmesan, spicy garlic Parmesan, dry ranch and plain flavors.
For sides, the restaurant has regular fries and “VJ fries”—regular fries topped with barbecue sauce and ranch.
