Lemon Pepper Wet Wings at J.R. Crickets MidtownAvailable at The Original J.R. Crickets in Midtown Atlanta !
Around the year 2000, J.R. Crickets founder Paul Juliano noticed many of his customers liked to combine the heat of J.R.’s traditional hot sauce with the zest of their lemon pepper seasoning, creating a pungent scent and an even bolder flavor. He and a manager decided to add the hybrid hot wings to the menu, dubbing them “Fester wings,” after one Uncle Fester of “The Addams Family.” This year, the wings were rebranded as “lemon pepper wet,” (perhaps because of the word fester’s other meanings). Not for the faint of heart, these bad boys are best enjoyed fresh out the kitchen of the original Midtown location, an Atlanta institution. $10.58.
