Wanna be wowed by wings? Check out Bubba style Buffalo wings at Ker's WingHouse

I'm a wing guy. Bone-in, boneless, breaded, naked, mild, hot, thermonuclear, you name a Buffalo wing, I've tried it. At least that's what I thought until a recent visit to Ker's WingHouse introduced my taste buds to Bubba style wings. Wow.

Bubba style wings are double-breaded and fried (drums only) then doused in Dallas sauce (WingHouse parlance for honey bbq). The result is a plate full of the biggest wings I've ever seen or tasted -- and they tasted mighty good.

It's hard to "wow" a hardened food blogger, but "wow!"

The Bubba wings aren't all that's good on the Ker's WingHouse menu. I was offered the opportunity to try several styles of wings and all of the sauces. Yes, all of the sauces: Mild, Medium, Hot, House on Fire, Exxxtreme, Blackened, Asian, Garlic Parmesan, Mango Habanero, Sweet Thai Chili, Blackened Rub, and, of course, Dallas. That's an impressive lineup of wing sauces. Besides the Dallas sauce, I really liked the Garlic Parmesan and the Sweet Thai Chili.

There's more to the WingHouse menu than wings. I enjoyed the Sampler Platter of Jalapeno Poppers, Onion Rings and Mozzarella Sticks and the Grouper Bites were perfectly fried, tender and flavorful. Definitely start with the Grouper Bites.

I've frequented WingHouse many times over the years, and like any "breastaurant," service can be inattentive if you show no interest in purchasing a calendar, or whatever else the servers are pitching, but on this visit, service was spot on, and our server was knowledgeable regarding the menu and very upbeat.

Founded by Cowboys and Broncos alumni, Crawford Ker, the first location opened in Largo in 1994. There are six Orlando-area Ker's WingHouse restaurants.

Note: I dined compliments of Ker's WingHouse.
