The Battle of Moorestown - Best Wings in Town

 LaRosa Chicken & Grill
By Wing King CEO Anthony Cicali
American Wing King votes "Biggest Wings in Moorestown" and " Best Marinated Wings In Moorestown"
When we walked in , we were greeted by store owner Pepe Guida from Naples Italy. I was immediately impressed by the clean atmosphere. We placed my normal order of 20 wings. Owen looked at me and said " you are not going to be able to eat all 20 here today." I brushed him off quickly. Pepe then offered us a tour of the restaurant. He showed us how he cooked his wings. All wings were fresh and he marinated all his wings for atleast 46 hours!!!. I repeat 46 hours!! He then showed us how he breads and cooks the wings. All the breading is a home-made mix. I thought he was showing off a little bit with the size of the wings he showed me and then I realized all his wings were that size. Owen was right, ( rare to admit this) and I was doomed . Our wings came out and I barely ate 10. They were good size wings. They also tasted great, they have a spicy kick to them and he serves all sauce on the side. He only serves mild and hot sauce. I suggest they carry some more variety in their wings, but I enjoyed wings. Though just marinated by themselves they are good. (It's 930 am, and as I type this, I'm thinking about driving there soon as they open because my mouth is watering thinking of these wings, damn I have problems lol)  I was stuffed after 10 and had to bring home the rest in a doggy bag , carrying my head down in shame. Pepe said they are known for the Rotisserie Chicken, but the wings have been catching on fast. This place was my personal favorite in town for the unique style and epic portions.My only other complaint is that they need a Facebook page.  As you can also see , LaRosa is now one of our sponsors. We accepted them after we tasted the wings, American Wing King will never be sponsored by a wing we don't fully approve. My suggestion , try them for yourself.

LaVita's Pizza - Moorestown NJ
American Wing King votes "Best Teriyaki Wings in Moorestown"
By Wing King VP Owen Brennan
American Wing Kings visited LaVita's pizza in Moorstown, located right in the heart of town on Main Street, the other day. We have heard they had pretty good wings from a couple people so we decided to check it out. It's a very colorful restuarant, but completely decked out in Yankees stuff! Boo! Everything is Yankees, paintings on the walls, pictures and NY slogans. Not sure how smart that is being in Phillies territory but whatever. We looked over the menu and decided to order 24 wings in a couple different flavors....but no. They don't split the flavors per order, so we ended up having to place 4 different orders of 6. That sucked! We ended up paying almost $10 over what the cost for 24 wings would be. That wasn't cool. I asked the guy running the place, "What flavor is ordered the most?" He didn't get what i was asking. So, i rephrased, "What's the most popular flavor?" He replied, "Mild i guess, people around here are boring." Ok cool, insult the customers, nice. I looked over the menu and ordered Teriyaki, garlic parm, hot and mild. The wings were totally "plain jane" as Don Thompson, described them. They were small, over cooked and not a whole lot of meat n them. The garlic parm had fresh parmesan, which was pretty cool, and fresh garlic, but they were still dry. The mild and hot flavors were very generic. Nothing really to write about for them. The best were there teriyaki. Good flavor, pretty sweet with an authentic asian taste. They were the best at LaVita's. After we housed all 24 wings, and paying like $34, we were still starving so had to spend another 10 bucks on a calzone, which was pretty good. They had a very large selection of gourmet pizzas lined up on the counter. I have heard their pizzas wee amazing and I definetly believe that. I rate the wings at LaVita's a 3, and thats only because the teriyaki sauce was good. The service sucked too, like i said, the manager said "people around here are boring." Anthony and I split the calzone, so we both ended up having to take some home. I walked up to the countr and asked for a take out box. The guy said, "For what?" Umm, because we have food to take home maybe? He rolld his eyes and got me 2 boxes. That's about it for LaVita's. If you're looking for wings in Moorestown,  suggest going to one of the other 5 places just on Main Street to get your fix.

Papi's Pizza II - Moorestown NJ
American Wing King Votes them "Best Deals and lunch Specials in Moorestown"
By Jim Clancy
A small restaurant known by most people for their pizza, Papi's Pizza II on Camden Avenue in Moorestown, NJ has some of the best wings that many people don't even know about. Papi's II is mainly a take-out / delivery restaurant, so if you live in the area and want some good wings to eat at home during a big game or any other get together, give these a chance. Coming in order sizes of 10, 15, 20, 30 and 50, these wings are a decent size and each order is very saucy. The mild wings have a slight barbecue taste to them. The hot wings are like good old-fashioned bar wings with a spice that's just enough kick, but not overpowering. Other sauce varieties include garlic, honey BBQ, honey hot, spicy BBQ and super hot. Give these wings a shot. You won't be disappointed.

   Wing Bowl is an annual eating contest founded in 1993 by Philadelphia talk-radio hosts Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti as a celebration of gluttony. The contest was first broadcast on WIP (AM).
About 10 people attended Wing Bowl I (held in a hotel) in 1993 to see a competition between two contestants. The event pits competitive eaters in a chicken wing eating contest. The Wing Bowl is traditionally held on the Friday preceding the Super Bowl. The event, which began as a radio promotion, has grown to encompass television, the Internet, and a contest for women who are termed "the Wingettes."
It is currently held at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, where it is still broadcast live on WIP. There are currently no television deals to broadcast the event live; however, a replay is usually shown on WPSG, Comcast SportsNet, or one of the other local stations within the following week. The Wing Bowl now draws crowds of 20,000 or more.
Wing Bowl was the brainchild of WIP radio host Al Morganti, who came up with the idea when it became apparent the Philadelphia Eagles were not going to make the Super Bowl anytime soon. It is also suggested that Morganti was fed up with the Buffalo Bills going to the Super Bowl and not winning. The first Wing Bowl was held in the lobby of the Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel in Center City. Carmen Codero walked away with the inaugural title, receiving a hibachi as his prize.
Since then, media coverage has grown to the point where every one of the major Philadelphia television stations has covered the event. The ABC, CBS and Fox affiliates all aired live reports from the event during their morning news. Features on the event have appeared in the Courier-Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News as well as a host of newspapers in the surrounding counties. The event has been featured on ESPN and the syndicated television shows Real TV and The Montel Williams Show. Segments on Wing Bowl have appeared on TV newscasts in cities throughout the country. Several Wing Bowl contestants, including "El Wingador," competed in Fox's "Glutton Bowl" in the spring of 2002. The 2007 Wing Bowl was carried on Comcast Cable's On Demand channel.
Then Mayor of Philadelphia and future Governor of Pennsylvania Ed Rendell attended Wing Bowls II, III, IV and VI, where he presented the winner with a "Liberty Bell" trophy. Other celebrities who have appeared include retired heavyweight boxer Randall "Tex" Cobb, former 76ers President Pat Croce, former Phillies manager Larry Bowa, U.S. Senator Arlen Specter, and others. Major-league umpire Eric Gregg served as the "Commissioner" of Wing Bowl from its second year until his death from a stroke on June 5, 2006. On December 4, 2006, it was announced that Pat Croce will be the new commissioner.

(As per Wing Bowl Commissioner Pat Croce) Entry into Wing Bowl can be gained in two ways, the first of which is successfully performing an "eating stunt" on air during The Morning Show at the 610 WIP studios in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, with Al Morganti as judge. Stunts have included eating 20 cups of cooked oatmeal, eating 60 ounces of creamed spinach with 60 ounces of hot sauce, and eating five Big Macs. The stunt must be completed within a time limit negotiated between the contestant and Morganti. Morganti, known to be a tough judge, has disallowed stunts that involved what he considers "cheating", such as dipping bread into a beverage to make it easier to swallow, or breaking up a food item into constituent parts for easier chewing (such as separating hot dogs from their buns). He is also tough on contestants who suggest a stunt involving liquid consumption; The Morning Show hosts prefer eating stunts over drinking stunts. If a person offers to perform a drinking stunt, it must be compelling to the hosts, such as Wing Bowl XIV champion Joey Chestnut's offer to drink a gallon of milk. The hosts deemed it not difficult enough, but, fortunately for Chestnut, former champion Bill "El Wingador" Simmons was present and declared the stunt to have a high level of difficulty, upon which the hosts accepted his offer, with a five-minute time limit to complete the challenge.
The other way to gain entry to Wing Bowl is to win a "Wingoff." A "Wingoff" is a 10 minute eating contest held at a Philadelphia or South Jerseybar hosted by former Philadelphia Eagle and WIP Host Hugh Douglas and WIP Personality Marc Farzetta. The "Wingoffs" began in 2005 when 610 WIP decided to spoof the Philadelphia Big 5|Big 5 Philadelphia area universities basketball teams. The winner of these "Wingoffs" gain automatic entry into the Wing Bowl.

An NBA Player Is Going To Sell Chicken Wings While He Rides Out The Lockout

by Dinah Wisenberg Brin

Oct. 14, 2011, 9:19 AM

The ongoing NBA lockout may give players time to pursue other business opportunities, and Milwaukee forward Drew Gooden is wasting no time.

The 30-year-old basketball pro has signed a multi-unit franchise agreement with Wingstop, a national hot-wings chain, with plans for opening four new restaurants in Orlando over the next few years.

Gooden, who previously played for the Orlando Magic, and a partner, George Taylor III, have formed Zerocon Food Systems LLC and expect to open the venture’s first restaurant early next year, according to a release this week from the Texas-based chain.

“With the lockout, a lot of us are thinking about our future and looking for new business and investment opportunities,” Gooden says in a statement. “I’ve been a big fan of Wingstop for years, so this is a perfect fit for me.”

The NBA earlier this week canceled the first two weeks of its regular season, as a battle continues over how players and owners will divide the league's $4 billion in annual revenue.

Dave Vernon, Wingstop’s vice president of franchise sales, says Gooden has shown “great enthusiasm for the brand and a strong head for business throughout the franchise process.” Taylor, he adds, is a “strong operational partner” who will help ensure the restaurants’ success in Orlando.

“There’s a huge market of wing eaters in Orlando and I just want to provide them with the best product out there, hands down,” says Gooden, who has adopted Orlando as his hometown.

Gooden follows a long line of other sports figures and entertainers, including former Los Angeles Lakers star Magic Johnson, who have invested in franchises.

Wingstop has more than 485 restaurants in the United States and Mexico. Hip-hop artist Rick Ross recently opened his first Wingstop in Memphis and Troy Aikman, the Fox Sports analyst and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, sits on the company’s board.
