Wing Daddy Manalapan

Took the kids and made the trip up route 9 to the Ashley Plaza this afternoon in the hopes of finding good wings. Let's hear it for high hopes - we have a winner.

To start with, this is not a place to take your mother-in-law. It is small, with a roll of paper towels on every table and the food comes hot and messy, in short, a wing joint ;o) Although, I was impressed by the table of reading material available to peruse while you wait as, in addition to a newspaper there was also a recent copy of both Gourmet and New York magazines.

We ordered 8 wings garlic/parmesan style, 25 medium buffalo, and one order of mozzarella sticks, one cheese fries, and one mac n cheese. First out was the cheese fries which my son declared the best ever. I know I have panned other places for not using fresh cut fries and Wing Daddy doesn't either, but these batter-coated ones were sooo tasty and the cheese sauce as well. The wings hit the table about a second too late to catch the final fry as we inhaled them, but then the frenzy started anew as we tore into the wings. They were just the right size and well coated with tasty sauce, especially the buffalo style. I dipped the garlic ones into a nice mild wasabi mayo dipping sauce and liked that combo also. Even the mac n cheese and cheese sticks were good.

Next time I will try the sweet potato fries and the maple wings along with more of those yummy buffalo wings. It's nice not to have to drive to Jack's for good wings.
