Young Avenue Deli is known for creative sandwiches and awesome french fries.  I have eaten a Young Avenue Deli many times but I never took the opportunity to try the wings.  Turns out I wasn’t missing much.

The menu stated, “Hot Wings (BBQ or Deli Style Habanero)”  I had no idea what they meant by deli style, but I sure as heck didn’t want BBQ sauce so I ordered the Habanero.  When the wings showed up a few moments later I was immediately disappointed.  I could tell they were going to be sweet. Very sweet. The sauce was a barbeque sauce mixed with a pepper sauce that had a faint habanero flavor.  I wondered if perhaps I was served the bbq wings by mistake, so I asked my server…. Nope, my order was correct.  Basically, these wings were as far removed from classic wings as you can get.  They might have been redeemable had there been a decent amount of heat to counter the sweetness but that was not the case.
