We all have a spirit food â€“â€“ that one thing you could eat for the rest of your life. Iâ€™ve argued with myself over this for quite some time but ultimately, after years of soul searching and a trip to California in an attempt to â€œfind myself,â€ I landed on hot wings.
This passion for wings eventually led me to Mo Jeauxâ€™s Bar and Grill, a little restaurant by my apartment. I was first enticed by the smell of smoked barbeque that would waft in through my bedroom window and, ever since my first visit, Iâ€™ve been hooked.
I often found myself placing to-go orders for their pulled pork sandwiches and wings. Even the shame of walking through my parking lot with bagged styrofoam boxes wasnâ€™t enough to keep me away.
By the time I turned 21, I knew my favorite eatery would soon become my favorite watering hole. While dollar pints on Wednesday from 9 to midnight and four-for-one well drinks and Coors on Thursday nights makes for a solid way to start my weekends, itâ€™s the mornings I really love.
Iâ€™m convinced that there is nothing like a good Bloody Mary on a Sunday morning. And, with dim lighting on the inside and fresh air on the outdoor patio, thereâ€™s always a good seating option depending on the severity of your hangover.
So if youâ€™re looking for a chill place to hang out, the best smoked wings youâ€™ll ever have or just a good drink, head to Mo Jeauxâ€™s. And donâ€™t be surprised if you see me there.
