Oaklyn Manor

OaklynManor

I received a “Suggest a Joint” from Mimi the other week who told me that I needed to head down to the Oaklyn Manor to grab some great wings. Being that it was Father’s Day, my family decided to take this opportunity to give me the best present a man in my situation could receive… a Buffalo wing dinner. I’m not one to argue with family, so if they tell me I need to eat wings, by golly, I’m eating wings…. I do it for the children! So we jump in the car and swing on into Oaklyn to see what all the fuss is about.

It was a gorgeous day outside and the sun was shining as we pulled into the lot. The Manor has (read more…)

Planet Wings

PlanetWings

I heard of this chain a couple of times in the past and the main reason I stopped in was because I was not only starving, but also heard that their sauces had “Award Winning Flavors.” I did not know what to expect from the place until I got there – where I realized that it was the same basic concept as Wings To Go (which we all know I dislike), but I didn’t want to let that to skew my view. Everyone gets a clean slate as soon as I step through the door, and (read more…)

Moriarty’s Pub

Moriartys

I recently received a “Suggest a Joint” from Lauren who recommended that I try out Moriarty’s Pub in Philadelphia, and since the wife and I had already decided to head out for dinner and a movie, we thought it would be the perfect time to swing in and see what all the fuss was about. Located on Walnut Street in Center City, this Irish pub was definitely a happening place on this gorgeous Saturday night. The first floor was packed with people around the bar and the sound of everyone’s conversations echoed like a big mishmash medley of voices. I wanted a (read more…)

For the past month or so, my brother-in-law has been trying to coordinate a trip with me to JoJo’s Tavern located in Hamilton, NJ. According to him, they have the best wings in his area, and after many failed attempts to meet up, our schedules finally coincided leaving us JoJo’s bound. So I head into Hamilton, park the car and walk into this small and friendly place. As I take my seat at the bar and (read more…)

John and Molly’s

On occasion I find myself sitting at a social event, or in this case a birthday party, and getting involved in a “whose wings do I NEED to try” conversation. I love these conversations for multiple reasons:  To help people find great wing places that I have found, to hear different wing stories that different people share, and most importantly to find new places that I haven’t tried. During one of these conversations, Allison, a friend of mine who is known for finding and loving great wings (she even makes her own, though with fear of me rating them, I have not had the pleasure of trying them), said that she was going to take me out to a place that she remembered having really great wings. That place was called John and Molly’s, and a short time later (read more…)
