Since my husband was working tonight, I figured I would bring my children to Halftime Wingery for a mini girl’s night out. Halftime Wingery is located on Hwy. 44 close to the Hwy. 42 intersection. I was looking for a place that is close by, casual, and kid friendly. Also, my girls love chicken wings, the spicier the better.
We walked in to friendly faces and were seated promptly. The waitresses are all dressed in a semi-sexy referee uniform with black short shorts. I think it’s attractive and not offensive like other “wingy” establishments. They are all young and cute. That helps.
The place is not very roomy, maybe able to fit 15 – 20 couples total. That would be a packed house. This is not a bad thing especially since the restaurant is so new. I can appreciate a smaller, hole-in-the-wall place. I enjoy watching them grow and be successful IF they offer good food to back it up.
Halftime has several flat screen TV’s, so it’s perfect for the sports enthusiast. In other words, anybody from Louisiana would feel right at home. They offer items to-go and had customers steadily coming in and out with orders.
The menu is simple, offering the typical All-American items; Wings of many flavors(of course), burgers, cheesy fries, salads, etc. Nothing is on the menu for a dieter, even the salads. We ordered a 10 piece “Cajun Spicy”, 10 piece “Regular BBQ”, and a “Chipotle” burger with fries and onion rings.
Within 15 minutes or so, the food was on our tables and HOT. My burger was neat, cooked the way I asked, and extremely appetizing. The onion rings also were fantastic! It’s hard to find a good onion ring. My daughters said the wings were delicious. This was stated between messy bites, sips from drinks, and the much needed napkin break. They didn’t get on the Halftime Wall-of-Fame but I think they could have had a fighting chance.
Final thoughts: This restaurant is kid-friendly, with messy food that is delicious….Enjoy!

Update: The restaurant has been quite terrible the last 3 times we have gone. All 3 times, our order was wrong, under cooked, or items were left out.
Update 1/1/2012: The restaurant is now closed down and I am not suprised. Sorry Halftime!
