Mmm, these were so tasty! I loved the sauce on the chicken wings and the toppings were great too. I don’t think I’ve ever had chicken wings and watermelon together, but the combo was great. The wings were also super large so this dish was substantial.

Red Hot & Blue, Herndon VA

Apparently this place has closed since my visit. I’m not surprised. The food was marginal. I’m not even sure why they called these chicken wings “jumbo” since they were fairly small. They were also over-cooked and dry. The bartender was friendly though.

I love these wings and fried kimchi balls because they just burst with flavor. But I can’t talk to anyone for the rest of the day because they are SO garlicky, lol! It’s also a great value since I really can’t eat these all in one sitting.
