Foodie Favorites from A to Z – Hub City Wings
Hi everyone, Daniel and I are filling in for Holly this month on the Foodie Favorites blog, which is lucky for us because we've just experienced what some consider the best wings in Lubbock. If you're ready to get your hands dirty and try out unique flavors that will keep you coming back, you definitely need to head over to Hub City Wings (1902 24th St.).
P.J. Zaji opened Hub City Wings in 2010 when he noticed the lack of a local wing restaurant in Lubbock. Zaji has been in the restaurant business since 1999 and also owns Pete's Drive-In. He saw a big potential for a local wing stop in Lubbock and has really put his mark on the food.
In fact, Hub City Wings cuts their own chicken and breads the wings themselves with a special recipe. In other words, you're eating wings made from scratch. What also separates Hub City Wings from the rest, are their amazing home-made sauces! Their exclusive sauces, such as the Raspberry Chipotle, Mexican Adobe and Korean BBQ (just to name a few), can't be found anywhere else.
"I think we have the best wings in town, and our focus remains on the flavor and quality of food," Zaji said.
We tried Spicy Cajun, Thai Pepper, Raspberry Chipotle and Mild Raider (photos below), and that's just a few on the expansive menu. Zaji's favorite flavors include the Spicy Cajun and the Raspberry Chipotle. I will admit that the Raspberry Chipotle has such a unique flavor that combines sweet and spicy just perfectly! If you're extra adventurous, give your taste buds a little heat with their Extreme Wings, which are made with 6 different peppers. If heat isn't your thing, no problem. Hub City Wings has two dozen options to choose from.
And here's one more tip: do not forget the fries. O-M-G. We had our fries dusted with Wild Buffalo and Sour Cream & Onion. We were not disappointed. Make sure to add them to your order.
Hub City Wings also delivers anywhere in Lubbock. It is perfect for those evenings staying at home watching the game or the busy day at work with no time to venture out for lunch, give them a call (806.687.3332).
Around the end of March 2014, you'll actually be able to order your beer with your wings for delivery. Now that's something to get excited about!
But that's not all! Beginning on February 3rd, take this blog with you to Hub City Wings and they'll throw in 5 wings absolutely FREE for the entire month of February! How cool is that? So, what are you waiting for? Go wing it up at Hub City Wings!
