Best Dishes at Oohs and Aahs

I am a big fan of oohs and aahs. I live pretty close from the restaraunt and go fairly frequently trying to enjoy new dishes every time. When I went there last, I had the BEST fried chicken of my life. It was like no fried chicken I have ever had. It ws not their regular fried chicken but their lemon pepper wings. They are fried and then dipped in a a lemon pepper sweet and sour sauce. It sounds weird, but the skin stayed perfectly crunchy and the sauce added a je ne sais quoi. It was HEAVEN. literally. I can't stop talking about it. I know many have tried this place, but next time you MUST try the lemon pepper chicken. Make another trip soon if you haven't had it. I am drooling just thinking about it.

I also really like the cajun shrimp. They are sauteed and covered in this spicy pepper rub and are killer.

I was a little disapointed with the short ribs when I was there last. They were tender but the sauce was uninspiring, but maybe that was in comparison to the best fried chicken ever.

What do you like to eat there?

  1. Thanks for the tip on the lemon pepper wings! I must try that.

    I'm with you on the cajun shrimp. I know there are mixed reviews on the mac n cheese, but mine's always been tasty. I *think* I've had the blackened catfish tuna (if not, it was some other blackened fish) and it was unreal.

    1. Wish I lived or worked closer (or just got down there more often - I used to!). Do they still do chicken and waffles late night? That used to rock.
