Bunny Jackson’s Wings

This is a classic for those looking for some cheap sustenance with their booze. Buy a drink and the blues joint on Jack Rosenthal Street will let you have as many wings as you can handle for 10p each. We’ve seen many a fully loaded plate as brave souls try their best to get through what seems like a whole KFC restaurant of chicken. Available everyday.
