Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know this was supposed to be another twelve week chicken wing tour and now we’re on our 14th week, but that’s just the way it rolls here on MBIP! You never know what’s going to happen and I wanted to have Scott Turley do one of his end of the tour cookouts from his place like we did here and here, but last Sunday was Mother’s Day so he couldn’t do it last week, so we’re going to do it this Sunday. So in the meantime I saw that Haddad’s North near Pioneer Park has a Friday chicken wing special, so I thought I’d go and check that out. And so it’s off to the MBIP Mobile we go!
Here we go to Haddad’s newest restaurant which is conviently located about two minutes from MBIP World Headquarters!
See, we’re already here! There’s the sign advertising the Friday 50 cent chicken wing special and the entrance is just over...
Here! Wow, it’s way past lunch time and there’s still a line in here, check out the guy wondering why I’m taking a photo of the line. Smile, you’re on MBIP Candid Camera!
As I got up to the counter where you order I met Zoie and the owner of this restaurant, Gabe Haddad. They were really friendly and offered up a little tour of the kitchen area where the 50 cent wings were going to be prepared.
Here’s the kitchen area, that’s Roy who’s going to be cooking the wings and you can see the wings frying away in the last shot.
As I made my way to a table I noticed these two pieces of art. The first one is Tony Haddad, who we met when we did a food cart post and the last is a car drawing and both were done by Gabe’s daughter, Loreece, great artwork!
Here’s the specials of the day on this fine Friday!
I decided to sit at this table and here’s Zoie with my iced tea. How cute does she look by the way!
Okay, here comes lunch, I started off with an order of Tater Tots and you can never go wrong with Tater Tots! They were crispy and delicious!
And here’s the star of the show, the chicken wings! I never would’ve thought to come here for chicken wings, but I’m glad I saw the Friday 50 cent wing special sign, because they look and smell fantastic!
Wow, these are really tasty, plump and juicy! The sauce is spicy and there’s a little hint of sweetness with the heat, these are really tasty wings! And they’re super saucy so luckily....
They have a roll of paper towels at the table.
Which leads us to the weekly bones and napkins shot.
I don’t eat a lot through the week, so I packed up half of the order to eat later for dinner at work. When I put the top down on this I got a surprise...
As i was walking back to the MBIP Mobile, I looked over at the business that’s located next door to Haddad’s North, Elliot’s Cabaret Diner. I’ve never been in there and always wondered what a strip club was like in the middle of an afternoon.
Then I saw this sign and immediately felt challenged to try and get some photos in here.
Yes! So here’s some exclusive MBIP photos of Elliott’s Cabaret Diner on a Friday afternoon! It’s really dark in here and it feels like it’s midnight, which is perfect for me! I may have to come back!
Here’s the dance floor, it’s very colorful over here!
There’s a nice pool table over here, this place is really nice inside!
Here’s Dana, the friendly and beautiful bartender on duty! Check out the huge....smile on her face! So pretty!
Demi was one of the pretty dancer’s on duty and she posed on the dance floor for me.
Catalina also posed for the MBIP camera looking beautiful! Thanks to everyone at Elliott’s for letting me take these exclusive inside photos and to Gabe, Zoie and Roy at Haddad’s for a delicious 50 cent chicken wing Friday lunch! We’ll see you all tomorrow!
