Wings, oh, lovely wings! Who doesnâ€™t love a great wings place, right? Sure, you could trek out to theÂ lone Hooters left in Oregon at Jantzen Beach, but for a great local wings place, you really should visit Fire on the Mountainâ€”which now has two locations. Not only are the wings great, but the selection of sauces is outstanding.
Portland was a little behind the wings trend for years and years, and Fire on the Mountainâ€™s initial location on North Interstate was really the first GOOD wing-specializing place in town (seriously, you canâ€™t count Hooters, puh-lease) when they opened up in 2005. The original location is teeny-tiny, so if you go be prepared to wait for a table or just order take-out. The new East Burnside location is larger and very airy, but itâ€™s also known to fill up fast during lunchtime.

The Lunch Lady was at a job interview today (yes, she needs a real job), when the person who was interviewing her mentioned they just recently dined at the new Fire on the Mountain on Burnside. Yay! We tried to stop by a few weeks ago, but they were still working on the finishing touches.
We will certainly be headed there soon to check out the new digs! We LOVE their wings and the fried pickles!

I waited patiently for months for Buffalo Wild Wings to open up on SW Morrison. Sure, I could have visited their other location out in Hillsboro, but who really wants to drive that far when there are so many tasty lunch spots closer in? So the very first week they were open, I got my taste buds prepared for the heat and headed in. I mean, who doesnâ€™t love a meal where finger licking is practically required?
At first sight I was a little overwhelmed, the space is huge, the televisions are everywhere and itâ€™s a little bright and loud for my taste (itâ€™s a sports bar, after all), but from the second I stepped through the door the service was impeccable. Continue reading Review: Buffalo Wild Wings
