Hmmm…Sometimes I just want great wings. It does not have to be fancy, but each bite has to be loaded with flavor. These wings are fried, drizzled with cool ranch dressing, hot sauce, and garnished with parsley. Then on the side are crispy green celery sticks for extra crunch and dipping. This taste of heaven can be eaten as an appetizer IF, you feel like sharing or as a personal entrée. I promise its finger lickin’ good. All your missing is an ice cold beer and a NFL game.

It’s crunchy and lightly fried to perfection. This is an appetizer with alligator, calamari, shrimp and crawfish fondeaux. This trio appetizer is a great way to start off any meal. What’s so special about this dish is the appearance of the alligator. Many people have not tried the succulent flavor of alligator and wouldn’t think to order it either. I have to admit I was a little weary at first, but it was worth the experience. I enjoyed the burst of flavors and the overall presentation.
