Afternoon Dinner from Wings Galore


Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)—I had a pleasant chat this afternoon with Emily at Wings Galore in our Downtown. She took my lunch order, which was so filling that it served as dinner, too.

I was in the mood for a fish sandwich and tired of the square fish at the Arches on Route 30. You will still see me in the drive-thru of the Golden Arches occasionally, but the fish at Wings Galore is of a more homemade quality. It tastes like it was breaded in the store, and I’d bet it was.

Emily asked if I wanted catfish. Not my style. “Tilapia?” she asked.

Yes, that would be great. And it was.

Preparation took around 15 minutes. Leon was the gentleman on the grill. I thanked Emily for the meal, shook Leon’s hand, and nodded to the owner, who was busy on the phone. I’ll catch up with her another time.

I was happy to see the venue serves crinkly fries. I was in the mood for them, and they tasted perfect with the Heinz Ketchup I had at home.

The Sandwich Hit the Spot.

The sandwich was long, and the fish stretched the length of the lengthy bun. I ordered everything, including lettuce, pickle, and mayonnaise. When I got home, I added Tabasco. It was perfect, but the breading on the fish was a bit too salty for my taste. I rarely cook with salt, except for boiled cabbage, and I never add it to food after cooking. Low-sodium Kikoman Soy Sauce on rice is a must, however.

Wings Galore also offers fried rice. That’s on my list for next time.

I give Wings Galore 4.5 out of 5. The service was excellent: 5 out of 5. The store had a welcoming, clean environment: 5 out of 5. The prices are reasonable and affordable: 5 out of 5. The only drawback for me was the salt in the breading. I should have asked for no salt on the fries. As there wasn’t much on them, I enjoyed the fries. Leon cooked the fries and the fish just right.

I always forget to request no salt.
