FOOTBALL IS BACK! We won’t lie, we tend to watch more College Football at Buy Local Bowling Green. That said, there is nothing that makes it tough like over cooked wings with no meat you find at most places around town. However, we did find the one place in town that offers College Football’s ESPN Gameplan package, The NFL Sunday Ticket, A HUGE Big Screen in the middle of the restaurant, great pizza (award winning), the biggest beer selection in any restaurant in town, a great staff and yes, great wings!
We are going to get into each wing a little more later (these wings deserve respect) but, here is what is pictured. The sings (L to R) Traditional Buffalo, Kentucky Bourbon Glaze, Honey Chipotle on Chargrilled wings (Probably our favorite style is the chargrilled), Just Dang Hot on Chargrilled wings, Thai Sweet Chili and Garlic Parmesan. The beers pictured are 312, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel, Spaten Oktoberfest and Old Rasputin on the flight of beers and Bell’s Brewery Two Hearted Ale in the tall glass.
Yes, we sampled all of these. We love the process Lost River Pizza Co. uses on these (local) wings. “We use the same unbleached, non-bromated, white whole wheat flour that we make our award winning pizza dough from to bread a fresh, all natural chicken wing” said Owner Keith Coffman. “Our chicken wings are never frozen and comes from a high quality, very reputable producer. We don’t use batter, egg or milk to help our breading adhere to the wing or enhance the flavor or size of the chicken wing” said Coffman. Their Buffalo Sauce is an authentic recipe from a native of Buffalo, NY that worked in one of the city’s oldest Wing Joints. What is really great is their use honey in the Buffalo sauce to allow you to enjoy the heat of the sauce without burning your mouth for minutes after enjoying your wings.
