The menu is limited, so easy for the restaurant to get an order made and out. Ours were quick to enter and on-time preparation.

Beverage selections are Pepsi products. Several punch options plus Dr. Pepper, Mountain Dew, and energy drinks. Best Wingz does not offer iced tea of either persuasion nor coffee.


Wings for Lunch

You can tell by the name that wings are the feature. If you want just wings, order sizes vary from 6 to 100. The individual orders range from 6 to 15 pieces. These include a drink and a side of french fries or fried rice.

Fried Rice with Shrimp

Fried rice? They sure do. In fact, fried rice is offered as a meal – sort of like a rice bowl. You can get beef, chicken, or shrimp served with fried rice combined with onion, green onion, peas, carrots, cabbage and, of course, egg. A veggie version is also available plus and house version. The combination made with chicken was quite tasty. Looks very nice, too.

Menu choices at Best Wingz and Thingz include fried fish. The standard selection is whiting. You can get 1 or 2 pieces. Tilapia and catfish filets are also offered. There’s also the option of whole catfish. All of these are served with a simple tartar sauce. Our catfish had a thin coating. It was tender and very clean tasting.

Hungry for something else? Best Wingz and Thingz makes “Philly Style” sandwiches. They make one with steak and another using chicken.

Combinations are offered for almost everything. That means add fries or fried rice plus a drink. You can also add wings to some things. We had fried catfish plus 5 wings, fries and a drink. You can also just drums or flats if you like.

A Variety of Sauces

Lots of different wing sauces and offered. The expected mild, medium, hot and extra hot are on the list. There are several that have honey in them. Other than honey mustard there’s honey braised, lemon pepper, BBQ, spicy, and garlic with honey. Regular lemon pepper, BBQ, teriyaki, and garlic parmesan are the others. Best Wingz and Thingz has a special house sauce too. Plus the chef will make your wings plain breaded and fried for you.

One time we got the hot sauce – not too hot. Another time it was garlic parmesan and honey BBQ. Both were tasty. Mixed together, they made for a really good option.

Garlic Parmesan Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing

We found that product sizes are a little small for the main items. Our fish and wings were tender but not as large as you might expect. Prices reflect that by being quite modest. You get plenty of standard-sized fries.

There’s a small assortment of sides to add to your order or have on their own. Along with standard french fries and veggie fried rice, you can get fried okra and hush puppies. They also serve a fried veggie egg roll.

Seafood Boil

For something really different, try the seafood boil. Crab legs, shrimp and crawfish are the seafood choices. The go arounds include corn, potatoes and sausage. The menu lists combinations in regular and large. Plus a “build your own” option that’s priced by what you choose and weight. You can feed a crowd with one of these and 50 or 100 wings.
