WINGS OR FINGERS​
Not your average wings! Cuckoo's wings are large and meaty, marinated, lightly breaded, and cooked to perfection, served by the pound. Our chicken fingers are fresh chicken terderloins, light breaded and deep fried, each order is a 10 oz. Portion. Basic or covered in one of our great wing sauces, they can't be beat! Served with celery sicks and choice of ranch or bleu cheese dressing. Wing orders with 2 sauces ~ add 0.50.

The " pressure cooked" fried chicken is awful. Not sure where their definition of fried chicken comes from but it was dry and the batter was weird. The potato wedges were also flavorless.
