Costa Mesa, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Americans are craving wings and cold beer like never before and today, Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar introduces Jolene’s Wings & Beer, a takeout & delivery restaurant that offers a mouthwatering variety of mighty fine wings, sides, housemade dipping sauces and house beer for you to mix and match to your heart’s delight.
“We’ve been playing around in the kitchen with different sauces and flavors on our wings for years and now seemed like the right time to share some of our favorites,” said Chris Simms, Lazy Dog founder and CEO. “Jolene’s Wings & Beer gives us a way to serve more people in our communities and bring some fun with crave-able, scratch-made wings at a great value.”
The name is inspired by the 1975 retro RV that Lazy Dog renovated last year and took on the road to visit restaurants, ranchers, growers, and communities around the country.
Available for take-out and delivery, the new Jolene’s Wings & Beer concept centers around bone-in or boneless wings in eight chef-crafted flavors (styles listed hottest to mild):
Nashville Hot: the definition of mouthwatering, our hottest style wing packing some real fire balanced with the perfect touch of tangy vinegar goodness
Buffalo: with just the right amount of heat and a buttery brown sugar finish, this liquid magic has stood the test of time in our kitchen and remains a house favorite
Kung Pao: brace yourself for the perfect mix of sweet and savory with a hint of soy – tossed with crushed peanuts for texture and a crunch
Sweet Chili: our sweet and spicy red chili sauce hits you in waves, sweetness first and then pops of chili flake, sesame, and garlic – the best of both worlds
Cajun Lime: a zesty dry rub made with brown sugar, salt, pepper, lime and chili peppers, that makes for a real finger-licking treat
Smokey BBQ: with hints of honey and molasses, our BBQ sauce is the kind that other BBQ sauces aspire to be, a sweet, smokey, tangy masterpiece
Garlic Parm: our creamy, garlic sauce topped with fresh parmesan cheese makes for a memorable experience that your taste buds will thank you for later
Naked: no sauce, no seasoning, no judgement
Cold beer is a perfect partner to wings and Jolene’s will offer four-packs of 16-ounce cans of Lazy Dog’s house beers* for just $15 each, which are custom brewed by Melvin Brewing. Beer options include Huckleberry Haze IPA, Bonita Bonita Pale Ale, Whoa, Nellie Lager, Old Pal White Ale and Ankle Buster Blonde. (*Must be over 21 or order beer.)
