Eats for Under $7: Hurricanes Boneless Wing Platter
Hurricane Grill and Wings won a Best Of award this year for best wings, so I just had to check it out. Luckily enough, I walked in to the Plantation location just after 2 p.m. and was handed a lunch-special menu. So long as you purchase a drink (fountain drink or beer), you can choose from four meals: a burger, chicken sandwich, chicken caesar salad, or a wing platter for $4.99. I went with the boneless wing platter, and I'm glad I did.
With more than 30 sauces to choose from, ordering wings can be a chore. After much deliberating, I went with the Garlic & Parmesan wings mixed with hot sauce. A few minutes after placing the order, a basket arrived at my table with five boneless wings, some celery, and a cup of blue cheese. Normally, having only five boneless wings for lunch would raise some red flags, but these boneless wings were huge. Easily the size of their bone-in counterparts, each wing was drenched in hot sauce and covered in a garlic and parmesan crust. Crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and literally popping with flavor, these wings certainly deserve to be considered for any best-of list. My only complaint is the size of the meal. Although the wings were big, having only five and a couple of pieces of celery had me planning for an early dinner. Still, for a shade under $7, it's well worth the time to check out Hurricane Wings.
