This used to be our favorite place for wings -- huge, meaty, tender wings (not sure if they used to be slow bbq'ed or not before being fresh fried and tossed in garlic butter before serving with the best tasting barbecue sauce to dip into.

Ate at their place in Cranberry PA. Meat had no flavor, the sides, Mac n cheese, potato salad and greens, were not homemade as stated. The person at the counter couldn't suggest anything ..." I don't eat this food!" That should have been our clue to leave! She microwaved everything. I've eaten BBQ in the south, west and pretty much... More
