Intrepid Scene photojournalist Eric England recently called our attention to Ghot Wingz, a new dine-in restaurant in East Nashville just north of Nashville Auto Diesel College. James and Sharonda Stone opened the restaurant in June and are serving a menu of burgers, fried whiting and catfish, pork chops, salads and fried chicken. As the name suggests, the main offering is 14 flavors of chicken wings, including Asian heat, Buffalo and garlic-parmesan.
James, a veteran chef and alumnus of J. Alexander's, developed the recipes, and he fries everything to order. We haven't been to Ghot Wings yet, but Eric offers this critique: “The wings are pretty damn good—sweet sauce with bit of pepper floatin' around in there.” Words like that are worth a thousand photographs.
Located at 2501 Gallatin Ave. (facing McClurkin), Ghot Wingz is open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Starting Sept. 7, Ghot Wingz will be open 3 to 9 p.m. Sunday. As always, if you get there before we do, please report back on Bites.
