One day I was working near East Parkway and I realized I was close to “Best Wings of Memphis.” I’ve read the review on Dining with Monkeys and I’ve also read Best Memphis Burger’s review. They were pretty much split. I, as always, decided I wanted to check it out myself and form my own opinion.
I heard the lines get really long around lunch time but I was only the 7th person in line when I went. (sarcasm) Anyway the line went very efficiently and quickly. Before I knew it I was at the front of the line placing my order. I ordered the 6 whole wing combo with fries. I took my seat and in less than 10 minutes they told me my order was ready. When I first opened up the box I was blown away by how great it smelled.
The wings looked pretty darn sexy if I do say so myself. I know there has been a little criticism from a fellow blogger about their sauce. I, on the other hand, found it pleasantly surprising. It does have some sort of tomato based sauce to it, but………I loved it. I thought it was messy and fantastic. It was literally finger licking good. It’s not quite as sweet as a honey hot or honey gold, but it does have some sweetness to it. The fries were also great.
I ate these pretty quickly and with my sleeves rolled up. Afterwards I made a quick trip to the restroom for a thorough hand cleaning. It was all worth it though. I am really looking forward to hitting up this spot again to try some other wing flavors or even some of their catfish I’ve been hearing about. The staff is nice and efficient due to the fact the lunch crowd is so large. There were plenty of seats though because most customers seemed to be getting take out orders. Please stop by here and see for yourself. Just remember…. you made need a waterhose or a shower once you are done, but the messiness is all part of the fun.
