11/8/2008 I really should go to Da Cajun Shak more often
Ever had one of those places that you never get a bad meal, yet you just don't go to very often? Guilty.
Da Cajun Shak sits at 21st and Woodlawn and is run buy a couple folks who stick out like a sore thumb in Wichita. They are genuinely friendly. I've kidded them about it. When's the last ... Read the rest
10/4/2008 Newton Jerk-Off
Yeah that is what I thought too when I first heard the name. But what we are talking about here is Jerked Chicken. I have had jerked chicken in the past, and I admit to being underwhelmed. However I always felt this was due to having it prepared by inexperienced hands.
This time around we h... Read the rest
9/28/2008 Hero's in Wichita, Kansas
Not to be confused with Hero's in Warrensburg Missouri. Hero's in Wichita was one of the first sports bars in the city. It opened in Old Town right when the city started turning the area into a hot spot. As with anything good or fun in Wichita, the entire area met with a huge amount of resistance. Y... Read the rest
9/28/2008 Taco Jay's, yeah I love that place.
OK here is my first non-wing post that I have been promising. Taco Jay's is a restaurant in Wichita, the South City area in general. It sits at 47th South and Seneca. It's been there for what seems like forever.
Now there used to be a place at Pawnee and K-15 called Taco Pete's. I loved tha... Read the rest
9/7/2008 It's Football season
Football started today. American Football to the rest of the world.
I didn't make a damn thing but deer chili. For some reason my son was completely enamored with Dean & DeLuca's chili. It was good, but it was sweet so I wasn't a huge fan. Since it was his deer though, I decided to toss a coup... Read the rest
7/16/2008 I'm not dead yet!
Been a very busy summer. Football season is staring me dead in the face. I plan to make a slight change to the format of the site. I mean, come on... Wings and nothing else? What was I thinking. Plus I have discovered most places are just phoning it in with their wings.
So we are going to c... Read the rest
6/7/2008 Beer Steam Wings
I had to put a quick post up to say the beer steamed buffalo wings are still coming. I tried them and the pictures were blurry and my notes were lost. I can't just throw a couple of sentences that say "good". So I will redo the entire thing with better pics of the chicken wings.... Read the rest
5/26/2008 Hard cider steamed Buffalo Wings
I tried Alton Browns buffalo wing recipe from the episode, The Wing and I. On the mechanics side, it worked REALLY well. No smoke and the wings look a LOT better than the stock image the Food Network webmaster put up. (Not a dig at them at all. I know how hard it can be to just get one decent image.... Read the rest
5/24/2008 Wait, I've got the house to myself ALL weekend?
Hocus Pocus is out of town for the weekend. My son is at the lake. I've got no distractions except for a shiny new game (Age of Conan).
So it is cooking time again. I will make standard Frank Hot Sauce Buffalo Wings this weekend... No I won't.
I am going to try Alton Browns... Read the rest
5/14/2008 Buffalo Wild Wings - Jamacian Jerk Wings
These were pretty good buffalo wings. You can taste the allspice and cinnamon. It went easy on the Scotch Bonnets and while it wasn't throat seizing hot it let the flavors through. This was our favorite on this outing. The flavor was really smooth and not overpowering. They brought the heat of cours... Read the rest
5/13/2008 Buffalo Wild Wings - Wild Wings
Wild sauce! These buffalo wings are pretty hot. Now here is the question. The BWW site states this sauce is mango based, the store however says nothing about it. I couldn't tell you if they are or not. They are good. Flavor is a little smokey and sweet after taste. Six of these wings in a row will g... Read the rest
5/13/2008 Buffalo Wild Wings - Blazin' sauce. SHE was in trouble this time.
Heh heh heh. My girl, Hocus Pocus wanted to try Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin' sauce. She said it was hot, but not as hot as she expected. I pointed out that she ate one, and 15 minutes later she could still feel the heat. I have to say this time around, I could taste more of the flavor. Which wa... Read the rest
5/8/2008 But I love Margarita's Cantina!
Margarita's Cantina, Wichita Kansas is one of my favorite Mexican places in the city. Now let me lay this out real quick. There are hundreds of Mexican places in Wichita. A lot of REALLY good ones. Now what I have always found weird is that for years there wasn't a single German restaurant in the e... Read the rest
5/4/2008 Blah wing from Pizza Hut
Wow. Just a quickie. Ordered some buffalo wings from Pizza Hut's Wing Street. Got the Buffalo Burnin' Hot.
OK it was an insult when Pizza Hut started letting the kitchen hose over the customers by sending out the tiniest chunks.
One of this batch was pure breading. On top of that,... Read the rest
4/27/2008 Back from KC, new features coming
I didn't eat wing one in KC. So sorry, no report from there. I promise to eat wings twice in Dallas when we go.
BTW, there will be feedback added to the site in a few days. I literally have to write it. This entire site is coded by me. I do it to keep my skills in shape. Yes, I am more than... Read the rest

4/23/2008 Buffalo Wild Wings - Blazin' sauce. I was in trouble.
I knew I was in trouble. Serious trouble.
I walked up to the register and ordered the hottest ones on the menu.
The cashier says, "Are you sure?"
"Yes, yes I am."
I pay, I get my little table twitter and as I turn someone from the kitchen leans out and says, "Is this r... Read the rest
4/22/2008 #2 in the pizza business
I got nothing against Papa John's pizza. But that isn't why I am here is it? Their wings were fine. Standard 50-50 sauce watered down either to make it go farther or because the locals think anything more strongly spiced than a piece of peppered bacon isn't fit for man nor beast.
Seemed to ... Read the rest
4/21/2008 Pizza Hut Buffalo Wings, they used to be awesome...
OK I hate to admit this. I really do, but I will give props where they belong. Pizza Hut used to have really good buffalo wings. You note I wrote "used to". I'll get back to that.
You have probably noticed that just about every Pizza Hut location has a Wing Street sign on it. Their parent ... Read the rest
4/17/2008 I can't believe I'm back in River CIty
First some back story. I used to be a huge fan of River City Brewery in Wichita, Kansas. Ate there 2-3 times a month with my family. Then one day we had a bad meal. I wrote it off to being an bad night. Next trip, the food was beyond horrible, the service was non-existent. Hour later we walked out a... Read the rest
