Deep in West Oakland’s Ghost Town neighborhood sits this mysteriously excellent takeout spot, a mix of bulletproof glass and old-timey kitsch decor. The wings are moist, tender, and full of meaty flavor, not to mention large for a standard broiler hen. The sizzling hot wing, made with a combo of old-school Trappey's fire sauce and fresh jalapeños, bowls you over with its intensity. The deeply smoky chipotle wing is also a scorcher, with just a bit less vinegar in the sauce. Both hot wings have little pepper pieces embedded in the skin, a nod to thoughtful, handmade preparation. The low-cost menu also includes a range of Philly cheesesteaks and a deep-fried Twinkie with chocolate and strawberry dipping sauce.
