Normally, I am a health freak when it comes to eating. I definitely stick to my regular salad, sandwich or soup. Fast casual dining is normally out of the question. I rarely consider anything other than what I am used to.
I’m not going to lie; I was not too thrilled when I was assigned the task of reviewing Craig’s Craziie Wings and Things in Norco. As I was sitting down, waiting to try the wings, I felt a bit nervous. I am a very picky eater and I hate eating food that does not taste good.
But as soon as I took my first bite of one of Craig’s hot wings, I discovered a whole new world of flavor that I was not prepared for.
I sampled five different flavors of their hot wings and each had a unique flavor. Each sauce I tried was unbelievable. I started with their hot flavor, which was indeed extremely hot. I then tried the teriyaki, BBQ and honey BBQ. Mild, however, was my favorite. It was the perfect amount of heat.
The menu targets people of all ages. They have wings for a younger crowd and the tri tip for older crowds. For breakfast, Craig’s offers French toast, waffles, sausage, bacon and fried catfish. Lunch and dinner includes fish, chicken wings, baked beans and mac ’n’ cheese.
The restaurant does not have an upbeat bistro-style décor but I still liked its family-style atmosphere. It has a few big screen TVs for sports games. It’s decorated and lit very simply, but it corresponds nicely with the “home” vibe.
The best quality about this restaurant is the service I received. The employees were very kind and helpful. Wendy the manager, who waited on me, made sure I was well taken care of.
She suggested that I try some of their banana pudding for dessert and again I was blown away—again.
