East Coast Wings & Grill is a fast-growing, casual, family dining franchise that puts the spotlight on buffalo wings. The burgeoning franchise recently placed No. 37 in Restaurant Business Magazine’s 2015 List of Fastest Growing Mid-Size Restaurant Chains.
Based in North Carolina, the concept caters to chicken wing lovers by offering dozens of varying chicken wing flavors that can be paired with nine heat intensities.
We were invited to an exclusive media event this Tuesday the 21st of July in order to try out a series of wing flavors that are offered on their menu as well as various interesting items that are to be added in the upcoming months.
East Coast Wings and Grill located on S. Orange Ave the 2nd location here in Orlando (the other location is on on Alafaya Trail in East Orlando) is your typical bar and grill with wings, salads, beer, cocktails, and burgers.
However what sets them apart was a few menu items that perhaps may be considered “extraordinary”.
There are strangely weird yet mouthwatering combinations such as the “BIg Daddy Patty Melt” a hamburger with your typical beef, bacon, lettuce, tomato, however the buns are made out of two grilled ghost pepper cheese sandwiches.
If that’s not out of the ordinary perhaps try the “ECW Breakfast Club Sandwich” a burger that has all your typical burger ingredients but with a fried egg and Belgian waffle with maple syrup on the side.
If you are just in to trying just the more ordinary items, perhaps the Sweet and Sour BBQ shrimp Tacos would be a good choice – especially if you want to cool down the intensity of the volcanic wings. Paired with the “Strong Island Iced Tea” their take on the classic Long Island Ice Tea, containing Cruzan Silver Rum, Moonshine White Lightning, and Sauva Blue Resposado Tequila with a splash of Pepsi – quite refreshing and not too strong to the taste.
Of course, you can’t forget about the wings — one of the wings that we were able to try, that they were particularly proud of was their honey BBQ wings, voted as America’s favorite wing this year.
In celebration of National Wing Day, East Coast Wings & Grill is actually giving away six free wings on July 29 with the purchase of an entree.
Lastly, for dessert we had the original cookie skillet but by then I was so full from the numerous amount of food items that I did not have enough room to eat it….but it did look pretty good though!
All in all, I enjoyed the evening spent at East Coast Wings and Grill -interesting items, flavorful wings, and full bodied cocktails – I recommend you give it a try the next big game!
