“We travel from Upstate NY to visit Adolph's for their out of this world smoked Sausages and meats. The neighborhood's a littel rough, but we brave it to get the BEST kilbasi in the northeast.

Pauls Wing It

 4 star(s)  (08/24/2010)
“You don't go to Paul's Wing It for the ambience. You go for the best wings in all of Connecticut ... maybe the best in New England.
