Height Wings - Memphis TN

 Height Wings 

6225 Mount Moriah Rd Extended, Memphis, TN 38115

I’ve lived in Memphis over a year now and I’m finally getting around to writing my first review since living in this food lover’s city. I’m absolutely blown away with the amounts of options these wing spots give. Dry, smoked, whole wings, party wings plus the amount of sauces these spots have are unbelievable. I’ve never seen so many options and I absolutely LOVE it! So on this review, I bring to you, Height Wings.


Height Wings is tucked into a deserted strip mall on the less crowded side of the city. I just happened to notice a brand new banner hanging up one day when I drove by so I stopped in. First impression was extremely positive. The place was clean and everyone in there was super friendly and nice to the guy that obviously wasn’t from the area. I looked over the menu, asked a couple questions about the items I had no clue about and then ordered my food. I ordered a few “honey gold” wings to get me started and was talked into some “Corn Nuggets.” That was the best appetizer I’ve ever had. Sweet little golden brown nuggets filled with sweet yellow corn that tasted like granny’s cornbread fresh out the oven! I was blown away. So after my mind was blown from that goodness, I got to the wings.

The wings were average size, cooked perfectly and tossed in the honey gold sauce. It was a very sweet sauce that actually has a legit honey taste that I really enjoyed. On a return trip, I tried a few of their wings in their “CamDolla” sauce and I’m glad I did. It’s unlike any sauce I’ve ever had before so its hard to explain. It has a bit of a kick to it and stays with you for a while afterwards. Awesome aftertaste so I didn’t mind.

There isn’t many negative things to point out except maybe the people they have taking the orders, but that’s to be expected when there’s a young person behind the counter. It’s probably her first job and its a fairly new restaurant so they’ve got to work their kinks out still. Just last night, I was getting ready write this review so I wanted to order again to make sure I knew what I was talking about. I called in what I wanted. 20 wings (honey gold) and 2 orders of corn nuggets. The girl who took my order hung up on me at the end of the call. I asked how much and how long but *click* and that was all she wrote. So I waited about 15 minutes and drove that way. Got there and she said they just started on my order. Granted, it was a busy Saturday night so I took that into consideration. The poor girl at the counter was just completely overwhelmed. All together, it took about 45 minutes to get my food. The prices are actually pretty reasonable. Definitely one of the more cost efficient wing spots I’ve found and I appreciate that about them. Still no police/EMS/military discounts though! I always have to ask about that wherever I go and its a guaranteed way to get me back in as a customer.

About the owners: Height Wings is a spinoff of the popular hookah lounge, Height Hookah Lounge. The owner, Cameron Osborne, aka CamDolla, realized that his customers would come to the lounge and wait for their wings, he sold so many wings he and his girlfriend, Nakitta Grice, opened up a wing shop after Nakitta graduated with a business degree. Nakitta is the Queen of Wings, no doubt about it. I love going there because Cam and Nakitta are so welcoming and show the best hospitality around. Nakitta is running the show there and she’s doing a fantastic job. They were very smart about doing their research on surrounding wing shops, they made their own sauce that is just out of this world.

In conclusion, I would definitely recommend going to check out the Queen of Wings at Height Wings. They’ll remember your name, put some love into the food they’re making and serve up some quality dishes. Their menu is impressive and when they recommend something to you, take their advice.

Roosters - Ohio

Carolina Gold wings on the right
This weekend I took a trip to the Kentucky Derby. As I was cutting through Ohio, I met up with some family. My Uncle George knew I was a wing fan and highly recommended a placed called Roosters. He said I wouldn't be disappointed and he was right. Roosters is a chain restaurant and I am generally suspect of mass produced wing places. Roosters has a cool sports bar setting. They have over 30 locations in and around Ohio. I ordered 20 wings, and tried a sauce called the "Carolina Gold"  . I always like trying new styles of wings and I didn't hesitate to take on this new challenge. The wings were very good and tasted like a sweet mustard sauce. I added a picture of some of the other wing flavors and styles they offer. The highlight I can feature was that these were some of the biggest meatiest wings I've had in a long time. I had trouble finishing 20 wings. Another good thing about the restaurant was that the prices were very affordable as well. Overall it was a good experience and I hope they continue to spread their wings across the country!  They also make our list for number 8 on the best wings in the USA!

By Joseph Santoliquito PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s always a slight awe in the eyes for the newcomers. They’re dazzled by the immense crowd at such an early time of the morning, taken aback by the clinging confetti in cleavage, the frothing crowd chanting, “Show us your …” and flying debris that can include everything from a sandwich roll to a toupee. But Molly Schuyler wasn’t fazed by anything. The only thing that bothered the tattooed Midwest mother of four was the chill that coursed through the back corridors of the Wells Fargo Center Friday morning. Otherwise, Schuyler treated Wing Bowl 22 like any other eating contest she’s devoured, vanquishing the field, which included NFL players, bodybuilders and former Wing Bowl champions. Schuyler ripped through a Wing Bowl-record 363 wings, smashing the previous mark of 337 held by international eating star Takeru Kobayashi at Wing Bowl 20, in 2012. PHOTOS: The Eaters Of Wing Bowl 22 Pat Bertoletti finished second with 356, Wing Bowl 21 champ Jamie “The Bear” McDonald took third with 304 and Jon “Super” Squibb came in fourth with 252, winning the local eater level. No one had a shot at Schuyler. She polished off 186 wings in the 14-minute first round, was just three shy of Kobayashi’s mark after the second 14-minute round and ate another 29 wings in the final two-minute speed round leaving everyone in her wake. Schuyler became the second woman to win Wing Bowl, joining Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, who won Wing Bowl 12 in 2004 with 167 wings. “To tell you the truth, I didn’t even think I was going to win this, I was looking and hoping to finish in the top three,” said Schuyler, who was going to catch a flight to Des Moines, Iowa Friday afternoon to compete in the IHOP Pancake Bowl I Saturday, then attempt to defend her title later Saturday afternoon at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. To call Schuyler an eating machine wouldn’t be just. How she rowed through the food was astounding. She chewed through the wings like mowing down corn on the cob. “I think I could eat some more,” kidded Schuyler, the Wing Bowl 22 crown skewed on her head. “This was freaking crazy. I kept eating and I kept saying I didn’t want to know how many wings I ate until the end. I just wanted to focus on what I was doing. But I don’t think I want to eat another chicken wing for a while. Hopefully I’ll be back next year.” PHOTOS: Molly Schuyler Eats Sebastian Jablowski, the “Polish Punisher,” won a Chrysler 200 by taking the college portion by downing 78 wings. Some of the floats arrived with imaginative flair. One float was a chicken coop made of actual chicken wire that had a woman heavily clad in facial makeup choking a rubber chicken. Perhaps the best Philadelphia-sports themed float was done by Dave Goldstein, US Male, who came in riding a Phillies’ themed float, calling himself “Ruin Tamaro.” In front of him was a geriatric group in walkers and power scooters, poking a little fun at the advanced age of the current Phillies. The biggest applause was garnered by Eagles’ center Jason Kelce, who apparently was serious about competing in Wing Bowl 22. Kelce arrived in an Eagles’ car, and in the back was Eagles’ head coach Chip Kelly. As Kelly walked through the staging menagerie, amid a row of double takes as he passed, one woman from a football float screamed, “Chip Kelly, you’re so hot!” Kelly laughed and shook his head. He made sure to extend a hand to everyone who recognized him. While others just gawked, viewing him like a sage. After one round, Kelce, with spots of hot sauce dotting his face, acquiesced after eating 65 wings. “The hardest part was the speed,” Kelce said. “I’m not used to eating like this this early in the morning. I’m usually eating eggs and bacon. But this was awesome. It was a great experience. But the speed got me. I’m usually not a fast eater, and I know I could have gone another 14 minutes eating. But the speed factor was killing me. I’ve never seen anyone eat as fast as these people. It’s amazing.” Phillies 2008 hero Matt Stairs was greeted affectionately with a huge cheer as the jumbotron showed Stairs’ magical two-run homer in Game 4 of the 2008 National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Then Stairs smashed two cans of beer together, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin style, and downed them. Where else can you see that at 7:30 in the morning?

Brock's Wings and Things- Philadelphia Pa

Brocks Wings and Things
CJ Ricciuti

Being a college student in North Philadelphia at Temple University, it isn’t always Ramen and cereal for meals. Some of the best food I’ve had in my life has come from this area and when there is a wing place merely feet from my apartment; I’m bound to give it a shot. Plus, as a Philadelphia sports fan, I am even more inclined to try it when former Eagle draft pick Raheem Brock owns it.

The outside of the place is honestly nothing to eye catching or extravagant. It’s located at 1600 N. Broad Street right in the middle of a strip mall. If you blink, you’ll miss it, and if you walk by it, you might miss it as well because you’ll be too busy trying to ignore the bums begging for food or a buck. Side note: watch out for the Lt. Dan hobo, he can get pretty feisty when asking for money and yes he has no legs. Like I said, I live merely feet from it and just realized it was there the other day and it’s been open almost a year. The inside is nothing impressive either. There was one TV in the whole place and it was on MTV Jams . Not a bad place to eat in if you are looking for a quick bit, but I would suggest doing take out, just my opinion.

To start off, they have a great selection of flavors for their wings. Of course they have the normal everyday flavors like regular, medium, hot and barbecue, but they also have some different flavors as well. Other flavors include Atomic, sweet barbecue, lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, General Tso’s, Cajun jerk, New Orleans, Chipotle, Asian sweet and spicy and sweet teriyaki. I decided to go with one of their more popular flavors and try the lemon pepper wings with a side of crab fries.

I knew it was going to be a good meal right away when they handed me a brown bag with grease spots all over it. I soon came to realize that it was because they left the fries uncovered in the bag. When I pulled the container out of the bag and saw the wings for the first time, it was almost like a good-looking girl giving you the green light. I threw the top off, stuck my face in, took a whiff and went to work.

The smell of lemon and black pepper hit my nose and I knew right away that I was in for a treat. All the wings were nice and even in size, not too small yet not massive, they looked great and weren’t completely drowned in sauce. I picked up that first drumstick, took and bite and knew I found something special. Super crunchy wing, great flavor and very juicy. I haven’t had a wing with such good flavor like this in a long time. There was just enough citrus to not overwhelm you and the little bite from the black pepper was a perfect endnote. The crab fries were decent, nice and thick cut, but no Chickie’s and Pete’s.

Price wise, the wings were on the average side. 10 wings will run you a little over 8 bucks, and 20 wings will run you about 14 dollars. I think this is a decent price for what you get. My meal, which was 10 wings, a side of crab fries and Gatorade ran a little over 13 bucks. For an average person that’s not bad. For a college kid, that’s like 5 cases of Top Ramen.

All in all, I would recommend this place if you’re in the mood for some good wings. The wings were some of the best I’ve had in a long time. I wouldn’t go out of your way for them, but if you are ever in Philly and feel like trying some place different, Brocks won’t disappoint.

Vegan Wings - Gunner's Run - Philadelphia Pa

By : Peter Cicali

How can I be a vegan and still eat wings? Vegan wings!! I have been vegan for over a year now and sometimes occasionally I miss eating wings. Over time the craving passes and I forget about eating wings until a few weeks ago I went to Gunner’s Run in Philadelphia. It seem like a normal bar where I thought I would have the normal bar food and thought I would be having my dinner as liquid! But no, to my surprise they have vegan wings on the menu! Vegan wings? What are they made of, are they truly vegan, vegan wings? Well they are vegan, made of seitan,made from gluten, the main protein of wheat. I decided to order some and see if they were any good. They had five different flavors to choose from, hot, bbq, spicy bbq, teriyaki, jamacian jerk. I decided to go with bbq and couldn’t wait until they came. After a little wait they came out hot and I started to dig in. The “wings” had a nice crunch to them, I am guessing they were covered with flour and deep fried. Did I mention they came with a vegan sour cream sauce? Well they did and it tasted amazing, just adding to the over all flavor of the wings. Even my brother who was with me and loves chicken wings said the vegan wings were better than the chicken wings. Overall the “wings” were great and I would highly recommend them to vegans or carnivores. It was also nice to be able to share a meal with people who are not vegan and like to eat meat. It is very uncommon that restaurants serve both options. So the next time you are in Philadelphia and looking for some wings check out Gunner’s Run, you won’t regret it and maybe if you are a carnivore you will give the vegan wings a try.
