The Chicken or the Egg - lbi wings





Chicken or the Egg
aka the chegg

by staff writer Owen Brennan


While vacationing on Long Beach Island, NJ, I heard very many good things about the wings at the Chicken or the Egg. After a long night of story telling and and laughing and drinking a few too many beers, nothing sounded better than some chicken wings. We got there around 9:30 am and there was no line, about 3 tables in the whole restaurant were filled and every waiter/waitress looked like they also had a rough night. The decor resembled something out of a beach boys music video with a touch of Katy Perry, both I thoroughly enjoy.

I ordered mild wings. The waiter, "Rob," said they were the most popular. I enjoyed an omelette as well since it was breakfast time and it just seemed like the right thing to do at the time. After my traditional breakfast was complete, the mild, wet, wings appeared in front of me. They smelled so good, it voided the breakfast I had just consumed. After the first bite into the full sized chicken wing, I had come to the conclusion that, no doubt, the hype was right on. Wonderful wings. I only ordered six wings and I'm glad I did. They were huge. May have even been the biggest I have ever seen. The price was a little high, but isn't everything on LBI? I left absolutely satisfied. Also, something that a lot of people may not know about this spot it's open 24 hours a day, and it's BYOB, and if you're military, they support the troops and have military discounts. I rate the wings a 9 out of 10.

Byrne's Tavern - Port Richmond (Philadelphia) PA

Anthony and I just had lunch at Byrne's Tavern in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, PA. First off, I'd like to say how easy this place is to get to. It's just off of I95. You can actually see it from the highway. It has a huge crab on the side of the brick building with a gigantic shamrock behind it. "Welcome to friendly Port Richmond" is a very inviting slogan. This tavern has a great Irish feel to it, when you get to it, there is plenty of parking which is a huge plus for a place in the city. Once you walk in, you're greeted by the friendly staff. I haven't been there in about 10 months, and only 3 times or so before that, and the waitress' Rox both remembered my name, asked me about my son, and even asked me how things were going in the town that i live in. That alone is amazing! But we don't write reviews on customer service haha. Still amazing though. When we sat down, we were given our menus, which is like 3 pages long. Typical bar …
