An updated take on an old-school chicken 'n waffles joint, Wings n' Things is the latest addition to NoMi's rapidly revitalizing West Broadway Ave: a sherbet-colored, to-go-style storefront that slings the type of damn tasty/ maddeningly unhealthy soul food, presumably so-called because it's certainly not doing anything for your body.
Everything on the menu's under $11, with their signature deep-fried chicken breast & wings next to similarly golden shrimp, catfish, and tilapia, all of which can be ordered individually or as combos like chicken & waffles, fish & shrimp, and fish, shrimp & wings all together -- a terrifying glimpse into this planet's Darwinian future. Creationists be soothed: they've also got a stable of sammies like Italian beef, Philly cheesesteak, chicken & cheese, and BBQ beef, as well as the namesake "Things", which include individual orders of waffles, chili cheese fries, cheese curds, okra, and onion rings, aka what Louie Anderson blows when trying to show off while smoking.
And because most things doctors say about "arteries" are probably just urban legends, you can also cop a family-style feast of 27 assorted fried pieces, liable to turn even someone in good health into just a body.
