It’s Friday night and you’re craving chicken wings. Where do you go? JR’s Place of course! This hidden gem is located off of Highway 30 in Wheatland, IA and has some of the best chicken wings I’ve had!
JR’s is the type of place every small town needs but most towns in general are lacking. A focus on doing something really good that people will come in for. On Friday nights, Wheatland will see a bigger influx of people make their way downtown because that is the ONLY night that JR’s has their chicken wings available. Get them breaded or naked, sauced or unsauced, spicy or mild, however you’d like!
A decent amount of cans and bottles available and on tap was Bud Light or Keystone Light, so we went with a few pitchers of Keystone Light. Any beer would work with the wings at this joint really.
I went with the breaded hot wings. The part I love about JR’s hot wings is that the spice is in the breading. I didn’t need them to be doused in a sauce which in some cases turns the wing into mush. They are perfectly spiced and a side of hot sauce to dip was all I needed! I added a side of some fried shrimp as well and they were damn tasty. I also tried the half bbq/half wing sauce wing and that was very flavorful. The wings held up to the sauce so the breading stayed nice and crispy as well.
So…if you’re looking for a new place to try out and are craving some wings. Get on Highway 30, head to Clinton County and stop in Wheatland! Grab a pitcher of beer, order a few baskets of wings and you’ve got yourself a nice little Friday night!
