Now under new management, American Pizza and Wings has spent the past couple months or so getting ready for the impending school year, and their menu boasts a ton of options for the hungry college student. Intrigued by a long list of flavors, we opted for the “party wings” (six for $4.99, 12 for $8.50). They’ve got everything, from your standard “Buffalo Atomic Hot Sauce” to “24 Karat Gold” and teriyaki, so we decided to go for half-conventional, half-slightly adventurous: the atomic wings and the honey mustard wings (which were recommended by the owner). Overall, the wings were good, but a little more time in the fryer would have made them better—though cooked thoroughly, they didn’t have that snap one looks for in wings. Such an issue is easily surmountable, luckily, and we recommend specifying that you like them slightly crispy on the outside (should you be of that ilk). As for the flavors, the atomic wings had just the right amount of heat for those who want spice without burning their tongue off. (They’ve got a “Thermometer Hot Sauce” option for those who want to kick things into high gear.) Although the honey mustard wings looked a bit atomic themselves, with their vaguely neon-yellow glow, they possessed a sweet, tangy flavor that blended perfectly with the tender chicken. Upon further inspection of the menu, we’ll definitely be heading back to check out the “Zack’s Fries” ($5.50), which involve steak, gravy, and cheddar cheese.
