Fast Food Review: Papa John’s Garlic Parmesan Wings

Details: Official site is

Score: 5.8/10

Papa John’s Garlic Parmesan Wings are not good. They are about equally as not good as Domino’s wings. They have the same, mushy, gummy consistency that chicken wings have no business having. You can taste the length of time these things have been frozen.

In regards to the garlic parmesan flavor, you need to keep in mind that this is an oily, not creamy sauce. Buffalo Wild Wings has a similar sauce, but that is creamy. This sauce is just oil. It’s not great.

Overall, if you’re buying pizza from a fast food chain, skip the wings. They’re all mostly going to be trash.

Restaurant Review: Mad For Chicken

I’ve been to this place a couple of times as well as its Manhattan location (the Manhattan location has since been renamed Turntable Chicken Jazz… I didn’t name it). This is your standard Korean fried chicken place.

The first thing I noticed was the size of the place. The last time I was here it was fairly small. They’ve since purchased the store next door and expanded into a larger space with a more open area in the back as well as a bar. In addition, the menu here is a lot larger than the menu at Turntable Jazz Chicken. There are all sorts of greasy foods that look good with a beer.

We ordered a plate of soy garlic wings, the La Poutine (fries with gravy, pork, corn, onion, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese), Parmesan fries, mac and melted cheese, a bulgogi sandwich, and the avocado salad. It was all pretty good. Nothing worth any Michelin stars, but good, greasy bar food.
