A Padded Resume – Buffalo Wild Wings

Ron says…


BW3 or the way I first heard it referred to –  “Buffalo Wild Wings & Weck” – I remember the first time I heard the word “Weck”, back in the early ’90s as I was stumbling down High Street in Morgantown, looking for the Hot Dog Man, I asked myself, what the hell does “Weck” mean?  My room mates were of no help, as if I was ripped they were surely torn.

As you can see from my opening intro for BW3 – well I have a soft spot for it.  Back then, to me, BW3 was nothing more than a bar where I could get cold beer, the food was served till past two AM, the wings were really hot, there were these great little round things like fries that they called “Buffalo Chips”, and if that didn’t satisfy you, well they had burgers too.  (plus I could sit and play trivia with various other losers throughout the land)

What’s not good at 2AM?   I don’t ever recall saying, “dudes, I don’t feel like drinking, let’s go to BW3, and get something to eat.” (course I probably never said “I don’t feel like drinking”, but that’s another story).

Billy’s Soho’s at Southridge – Menu and Update

Thanks to a reader, we have the menu from Billy’s Soho’s @ Southridge.  Click on the thumbnails for a full-size version that is readable without a high-powered microscope.



Some of the old favorites are still available, including those delicious and crispy beer-battered onion rings and the candied yams.  Maybe they should list the yams under the dessert section.  Mmmmmm….

Amie Dodson, Chef Sohovich’s daughter, tells Fork You that the menu is a work-in-progress, so don’t be surprised if you experience a slightly different menu when you visit them.

Billys Restaurant

Billy’s ~ when I heard this place was opening from reading the various articles in the local papers, I couldn’t wait to come here.  I think if you’ve read my previous reviews or comments of Mr. Sohovich’s establishments, well you know I’m not that impressed (but we also know I have no “culinary credibility”).  I just don’t get what all the hype is.

Blossom ~ yeah I can’t say I’ve ever had a bad meal there, but I have never had what I’d call a great meal either.  Same with Soho’s, of which I used to work just down the street, it’s good, but it’s over priced.  These are my opinions, and obviously both of these places are doing something right for someone, or else they wouldn’t be in business today.

But when I read that he was moving into the old Smokey Bones building out Corridor G with something that’s going to be HOME COOKING or as my mom calls it “COMFORT FOOD”, well needless to say I was chomping at the bit to come here.

Quaker Steak and Lube ~ great wings and cold beer ~ AT A CHAIN




Ok, well today for lunch a couple co-workers took me out for one final bitch session.  You see I’m switching jobs… moving closer to the Capitol Complex… (I know, that scares a lot of the area’s eating establishments especially that one that shall not be named).

So I was advised to take off the afternoon and sit back and relax as I wasn’t paying for anything.

First we wanted to go to the Power Alley Grill (yep, I told Susan this story, so that’s why she did some actual journalism the other day and found out what the true story was)…  But they were closed (as you know now).

I suggested Quaker Steak, I haven’t eaten there in a long while, they have wings, and what goes better with wings than beer?  (even celery and blue cheese doesn’t come close).
