Jacob D.Jacob David: spicy fried chicken tremendous... sides are a bit small.

EaterEater: One of Robert Sietsema's top cheap eats: the wings ($7.81 for six pieces, or sometimes seven) are big and meaty and glazed, and constitute perfect stoner food. Read more.

William H.William H: Wow, great wings! Spice was just perfect, persistent but not unbearable heat. Gun Mandu were deliciously poppable but a bit on the pricey side.
