Great variety of homemade food! Wings are AMAZING! Many different homemade wing sauces to choose from. Chicken ball is one of a kind and super yummy! Kid friendly.

“Great wings, better chicken balls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

I am not a fan of wings, I don't like them. However, I can eat an entire dozen of the Pheonix's Butter Garlic wings and not bat an eye. Ask for them to be slightly over cooked, makes them more crispy. They are not overly greasy and despite having a ton of garlic, it's not overwhelming. The Chicken Balls are unique and delicious. Essentially a softball sized ball of chicken and stuffing, served over mashed potatoes and slathered in gravy. The stuffing rivals my grandmothers on Thanksgiving and is perfectly seasoned to not overwhelm the chicken. The gravy is smooth and flavorful.
