CJ’s House of Wings N’ Things earns notoriety with variety

It didn’t take long for C.J.’s House of Wings N’ Things to garner the attention of the community, as The Mercury’s Readers’ Choice winner for best wings has quickly made a name for itself with a stacked menu that includes 69 flavors of wings — and counting.

Open since May of 2010 at their Pottstown location, the family business is owned and operated by local firefighters including chef C.J., who has concocted wing sauces ranging from the sweet to the ghastly — literally. The “Fiery Ghost” flavor is an inferno sauce mixed with Ghost Pepper, and C.J. explained “if you like it hot, it’s good.” A creative flavor called the “Twisted Mexican” features a southern-style sauce of herbs, spices and cayenne pepper mixed with blue cheese and ranch.

And while in spicy heat measurement C.J.’s offers an extreme sauce that reaches 5 million Scoville units, the variety of fresh, never frozen wings offers something for everyone.

Though wings are C.J.’s specialty, smoked pork and ribs, hoagie and steak sandwiches and much more fill out a diverse menu. The Muncher tried the “Beech Street Melt,” a hearty portion of turkey, cheese wiz, onion rings and hot ranch sauce packed in a fresh Amoroso deli roll. The cool cheese was the first taste felt, but a zing of the hot ranch sauce on the backend made this dish a welcome distraction from the typical turkey sandwich. Offering a variety of specials, C.J.’s delivers a delicious and economical meal that doesn’t compromise quality.

Located at 203 N. York St. in Pottstown, C.J.’s House of Wings N’ Things is open Sunday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Free delivery available by calling 610-970-8646.
