a tale of two wings…joints

for some reason, out of the blue (cheese), lockhart suddenly has two mom & pop wing joints…

…both with odd names.

one’s been around a bit longer, one just opened, but both are relatively new. here’s my reviews:

load off fanny’s (yes, i assume named after the song)

wings: both bone in and “boneless”, which let’s face it, are just chicken fingers.

other stuff: burgers, bacon wrapped jalapeƱos, fries, etc

lunch special: it’s $7.99 for five wings, bone in or out, the former pecan smoked for twelve hours, the latter standard fried. how the FUCK could you go the latter in that situation? there are plenty of sauce and dry rub options, and they’re not too goopy. if you have room in your order have a few of em “naked”, which means all you taste is pecan smoked chicken. you also get standard, straight, yellowish fries, a fountain soda, ranch or blue cheese, and carrots and celery to give yourself the delusion this is healthy.

opened: summer 2017

lil’ charlie’s (i have no idea who “charlie” is)

wings: both bone in and “boneless”, which let’s face it, are just chicken fingers.

other stuff: starchy sides, didn’t see much else

lunch special: it’s $9.99 for five wings, bone in or out, all standard fried but the wings aren’t battered, which is nice. i’ve only been here once, and the tester for me is usually garlic parmesan but they didn’t offer it. fall back is standard buffalo which had more kick than i was expecting and was a goopy mess. you also get really nice waffle cut seasoned fries (if you’re familiar with the cris-cut fries at carl’s jr, just imagine that) and mac & cheese that has black pepper on it but you DON’T taste it. while it was creamy, i like the stuff from plucker’s or some of the stuff i’ve made better. my wife loves it. i personally think they should make a dish with their mac & cheese with tenders tossed in it. you also get a bottled soda and a yeast roll, which unless you’re from the west coast you know that shit should be a biscuit.

opened: fall 2017

i’m gonna call charlie’s back, ask if they make that wing / mac combo. if not, i’m gonna suggest it. for wing’s i still prefer fanny’s, although i still think the name’s pretty stupid.
