Honey Shack: Grab Some Wings and an Eyeful

Honey Shack: Grab Some Wings and an Eyeful

Each week, Happy Eating highlights a restaurant happy hour menu. This week, surrounded by a flank of waitresses dressed in spandex and short-shorts, we try out some wings at Honey Shack.

Where: Honey Shack 4218 Lemmon Ave. When: 2-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 5 p.m.-close Sunday. The Scene: Hooters without all the neon orange. Happy Hours still haven't caught on that much, so it's a relatively quiet crowd (unless the Jet is on the runway broadcasting his radio show on Wednesdays, that is). Happy Hour is available throughout the entire bar/restaurant. The Deal: Half off wings. Honey Shack offers three flavors -- barbecue, Buffalo and lemon pepper. The Steals: Regular menu price for wings is $6 for six and $11 for a dozen. For half off, the math adds up to a lot of wings for not a lot of money.

The Con: Happy hour is quiet. Regular menu prices were higher than we expected for a place called the Honey Shack. Also, it'd be nice if there were some happy hour sides available to go along with the wings. Eat: Lemon pepper wings were our favorite, followed closely by the Buffalo. The wings and drumsticks were plump and juicy, and the lemon pepper had a great crust of seasoning encasing the meat. Skip: If you like your barbecue sauce smoky, then order the BBQ wings. We felt they could've used either a bit more sweet or tangy and a little less smoke. Lushworthy: $1 off wells, beer and wine.

The bottom line: Decent wings at a decent price. Good meeting place for a pack of broke and hungry wing fanatics who like to ogle.
