South Houston

331 W. Broadway
New York, NY 10013

With spring teasing us a bit and waiting just around the corner, I have the perfect wings for you to check out.  South Houston has a grilled peach-apricot BBQ wing that seriously tastes like summer.  They are a little sweet, typical of most BBQ we've had, but the fruity undercurrent adds a nice flavor that sets it apart from other BBQ sauces.  Couple that with the grilled char flavor and you'll be and looking forward to warmer times for sure.  

They also make a Buffalo wing which is grilled as well.  I think most Buffalonians would say that the fact that it's grilled means it's actually not a true Buffalo wing, but I'm going to say that they shouldn't be so stubborn.  Grilled is better than fried, in my opinion anyway... I know, blasphemy!  These wings are meaty, flavorful, have a generous coat of sauce and, again, you just can't go wrong with the grilled taste of crispy BBQ char.

I go to South Houston pretty often for lunch with a few guys from work.  I don't think there's been a time yet that someone hasn't ordered the wings.  As a matter of fact, there have been a few times when everyone ordered the wings.  They're a staple.  I suggest ordering the combo so you get half an order of Buffalo and half Peach-Apricot BBQ.  You should also check out one of the many draught beers they offer.  It's always a rotating selection of local and imported porters, ales, IPA's, lagers... you name it.  They also brew their own craft sodas which is kind of cool.

The staff and management has always been friendly.  They even gave us free pint glasses with their logo on them the first time we ate lunch there.  We've been returning pretty regularly ever since.  Check them out.

PS - They also have the coolest ceiling fans I've ever seen.

The fans rotate around the light.
I want one in my home.
