If you're looking for good wings go someplace else – Visited for the first time after hearing their hot wings were suppose to be "amazing". I was very disappointed! The flavor was okay and they were lightly breaded, I liked that. But beware if you're looking for the saucy & spicy wings that I'm used to at Long Wong's, forget it. I ordered 2 dozen hot bone-in wings, and I know hot is an opinion but these were straight mild, my 3 year old ate 4 without a problem and he's not one for spicy foods. Also, I expected them to be saucy but they seemed as if they were lightly sauced (sprayed on with a mister or something) to keep the breading from getting soggy, which it was anyway. I happen to prefer sauce sitting at the bottom so I can roll them around & have them extra saucy and super hot. Another disappointment were the side of curly fries I ordered, for $4 I expected a bit more, I got a small handful of fries. Usually curly fries will be seasoned, these were not.
So if your forced to go here because Long Wong's is just too far I would suggest trying the Suicide Wings if you're looking for spicy (although I didn't taste them myself). Tues & Thurs they have wing specials, which may make their sub-par wings worth it.
Overall this place is bland, I will not return. When I'm craving hot wings, I want them hot, not crying on the floor hot, but I expect to at least break a sweat. Long Wong's is still my winner!
great food & lots of fun – love the food & the service , kerioke night is the best ;)
Best Wings Known to Man – It may have been 11 pm on a random Wednesday night, but the food still tasted like it was made the second I ordered it. Usually when you go to most restaurants or fast food joints super late at night, an hour when they’re about to close, you can just taste that you’ve been given left over’s that they’re trying to get rid of. At the Native New Yorker’s on Gilbert and north of the 60, the wings were still the crispiest and juiciest wings in the country. No wonder they’ve been in business so long.
My family is the most critical and judgmental food critiques. It has to taste a full 10 on the scale or its trash. When it comes to me and my chicken wings, I don’t play around. My favorite dish every time I go to Native’s is their hot wings. Everything I eat has to have some type of spice to it. This place definitely stays on top of their flavors and makes sure that every bite you eat, the taste is consistent without holding back on their spices.
Though I could tell our waiter was tired of working all day, his service to me and my family was still at his best. He made sure all our needs were taking care of and that our food was in tip top shape. My grandfather ordered a salad and forgot to tell him no bacon. To our surprise, the waiter gave let us keep the salad to whoever wanted it instead, made him a complete new one, and took it off his bill. That is what I call excellent service. Obviously he got a very good tip.
I would highly recommend visiting this place and in my personal opinion, order the hot wings. You will surely not be disappointed or regretful. What’s better than having the best meal of your life after a long day of work/school? No matter the time or day, the food stays freshly made to satisfy all your taste buds needs.
