You know those Sundays where the weather is gloomy and there’s laundry to be done…and you just don’t wanna deal? And you don’t ever really roll out of bed until maybe around noon when you start to have hunger pains because you haven’t eaten all day?
Yeah, that was today.
In an effort to salvage a lost day, Jake and I decided to go out (not to go grocery shopping and prepare for the week like we should), but to have a late lunch/early dinner because we needed nourishment.
Jake was craving wings, so Yelp brought us here to this pretty chill little spot called Wings & Things by Serg in Manoa.
We’ve eaten at wing joints we weren’t so crazy about, but this place was pretty cool — and has pretty decent prices, all about less than $10 for a meal. I feel like I’m dropping a $20 every time I eat anywhere anymore — only to get back less than $10 in change because I’m paying $10+ for a plate.
Wings & Things is an extension of Serg’s Mexican Kitchen in Manoa — it’s actually right next door. Plus if you’re familiar with the Manoa area, this is also the same lot where you can grab some Boston’s Pizza.
You order your food at the window, and then you can have a seat at the covered seating area while you wait (there is a little bit of a wait for the food, about 15 – 20 minutes when we went).
By now you may know that I’m on a major tomato kick right now — so this Caprese Panini (basil, tomatoes, mozzarella, homemade balsamic vinaigrette) ($8.95) was calling my name. You get your choice of fries or greens with the panini. They were out of basil when we went, but substituted for pesto.
Super yummy if you want a panini for lunch or dinner — I highly recommend. They also have a bunch of other ones — Meat Lovers, Veggie, BLT, Triple Cheese — just to name a few.
Jake got a Monster Dog for $5.95 (the weekends have been full of foot long hot dogs lately), and some Kalbi Style wings (6 pieces for $6.99). These are not your average little saucy nuggets — these wings are huge! And literal wings. You can get 6, 12, 24, or even 50 pieces.
Their sauces are homemade and they have a good variety — Chipotle Barbecue, Mango Habanero, Roasted Garlic, Honey Mustard, and even El Diablo (not for Saints).
The seating area itself is pretty spacious, but does get busy around dinner time, as it’s relatively close to a college campus. If you’re looking for a laid back spot to chill with some friends on the weekend and you’re not looking to spend a whole lot, this is the perfect place.
It’s even BYOB — and I don’t know about you, but we’re always looking for good BYOB joints. (Plus if I don’t have to leave a tip, I’m happy.) So try them out! Head down to Manoa or call in your order for pick up!
