American Wings & Cafe

Wings Joint

American Wings & Cafe is clearly confident in its wings, or it probably wouldn’t be called American Wings & Cafe. As it should be -- the wings reign supreme not only on the restaurant’s hodgepodge menu (cheesesteaks, shrimp tempura, gyros, etc.), but in the state of Mississippi as a whole. The secret to the Hattiesburg counter-serve’s wing success lies in its homemade sauces -- teriyaki-garlic pepper, garlic Parmesan, lemon-pepper barbecue, and a house hot sauce which, let’s face it, Mississippi’s got the hot sauce situation on lock. Wings are served with fries, celery, and maybe some ranch if you want, but you definitely don’t need it… this from someone who drinks ranch dressing for breakfast.
