verdict: it's aight

god created eve by using adam's rib. god created me by using a fried chicken bone. seriously, my love for fried things, chicken wangs in this case, is utterly disgusting. can you just picture grease running down my chin? sexy, sexy, ooohhh la la.

i had a bad case of hot wings craving and came down here for a quick dinner with a friend. we started our anti-jenny craig dinner with their traditional philly cheesesteak sandwich. the bread roll was a bit stale and the steak had no flavor. the provolone cheese that topped it was a delicious looking melty mess, but once consumed proved that good looks does nothing for you in food as well. the cheese tasted plasticky. blah! it was one useless sandwich and a waste of $7.50.

we then moved on to our large order of buffalo style chicken wings. we asked our server to split this 16 piece wing order into 1/2 mild, 1/2 hot. to be honest with you, i couldn't quite taste the difference between the two. the hot sauce is of the vinegary kind but not too overwhelmingly tart that it makes you breathe in quickly when you bite it. the wings were somewhat plump and meaty without too much fatty skin, a quality i appreciate after having too much experience with anorexic wings or fatty flappers. i preferred the ranch dip to go with these wangs, though they provide you a bleu cheese dip as well. the wings passed with an ok nod from me. good but not great.

we also had a side of zucchini fries because the total fat grams that night were just not high enough. they were chunky and soggy which are probably the grossest adjectives for fried foods. the breading did not coat the zucchini sticks well which added to the mushy mess that we ate. and did i eat it all? of course!! i am a slave to all things fried.

as i punch out the last letters to this review and feel my heart skip a beat in a bad way, i decided i will probably go back one day, but only for their buffalo wings if i crave some and find myself in glendale. it is hard to deny this fried side of life.
