Wings are the starter at new family-friendly Fort Worth restaurant
Fort Worth has a new restaurant that specializes in one of the hottest cuisines: Chicken Wings. Called Wing over Fort WorthIt was published on March 5th at 520 Alta Mere Dr. Opened in a former Del Taco serving wings, yes, but also burgers, salads, and fried seafood.
Wings Over FW is a spin-off of Wings Over Kaufman, which first opened in Kaufman in 1998, followed by Wings Over Seagoville, which opened in 2002.
With the pandemic making chicken of all kinds increasingly popular, the company is in a good position to expand. A spokesman said they wanted to add more wings over other cities in DFW.
Their specialty are jumbo bone-in wings, but they also run IE tenders with “bone-out”. The sauces include well-known flavors such as lemon pepper, honey grill and Thai chilli, but also some amusing options such as the mild “Sissy Babies” and the spicy “Bad Boys”.
The menu contains some clever flight references: for example, the appetizer category “Pre-flight” is mentioned with fried cucumber and fried mushrooms.
They don’t just make wings: they have fried fish and shrimp that can be got on a platter or in a po ‘boy sandwich; and a Philly cheesesteak with provolone cheese, grilled onions, and mushrooms on a toasted hoagie bun.
Burgers are cooked on a seasoned frying pan. A simple burger costs $ 5. There’s a cattlemen with “bro” sauce, grilled onions, and cheese; a double meat double cheese “Jumbo 747” and the Elvis with bacon and cheddar (which they call the “Nacho variety”).
Three chicken sandwiches include a flavorful grilled chicken sandwich with jalapeños and a buffalo chicken sandwich with tenders.
For a wing seat, they offer a surprisingly sturdy selection of salads, including cobb salad, Asian mandarin salad, Southwest Spicy with Chicken, Caramelized Onion, Fries & Salsa, and a redneck salad with vegetables, onions, tomatoes, cheese, bacon, and fried offerings.
They serve a limited selection of alcohol, including beer and wine based margaritas, both regular and frozen. However, their commitment to beer is enough to offer a special that changes every month.
Being family friendly is a point of pride, a welcoming place to hang out with the family or have a beer with the boys.
