Every time I visit my daughter, we get the wings and the OMG chili cheese fries. The food is always hot and cooked to perfection!!! Love it!

homegrown greasy spoon kind of restaurant. Service is usually on par. A little bit expensive for what they do. Probably the largest order of fries you ever seen your life. A bit of a waste.

Found this place by using TripAdvisor. All the reviews were really good, so we gave it a try. These wings (and a burger) were so good! The wings were sizable, cooked to order and with plenty of flavor options. The hot is pretty mild, so feel comfortable going for something a little hotter if that's your thing. My daughter got...

BR has the best wings in Ft Walton Beach. They serve jumbo wings that are always delicious. I am typically a tradional-ist when it comes to my wings and I have only had the medium and hot buffalo sauce. Try the blue cheese dressing and you wont be disappointed. I don't know if they make their own, but I have... More

Best wings in the Fort Walton Beach period!!! Modest facility with a friendly staff. We enjoyed an order of the hot wings with curly fries. I definite must go to place.

Stooped in on a Saturday night, place was packed but the 3 of us were seated immediately. Service was prompt, drinks were delivered quickly and our order was taken. Both orders arrived as requested, 10 Mild, 15 Medium, all x-tra crispy and a large side of curly fries. Wings were excellent, high-quality and large, without lots of veins you sometimes... More

The blue cheese and hot wings are fabulous! We always order ours well done and wet with a half basket of fries. This way they come out crunchy and soaking wet in their delicious hot sauce.

I have traveled all over the country, and these are easily the best wings I have ever had! They are meaty and flavorable and always cooked just right. The flavor choices are all top notch, plus the curly fries are outstanding. The celery sticks are thick and not the flimsy stringy sticks you get in many restaurants. Plus the bleu... More

Great atmosphere. No one with me got wings but we all were satisfied with our options of shrimp and the chicken parrot. Staff was very friendly. Will have to visit again and try the wings.
