1. O’town Burger and Wings

While primarily known for their burgers, their chicken wings are awesome. The wings are first grilled over an open flame and then fried so they have a crispy exterior, but the meat on the bone is soft and tender. The key to their enjoyment is the variety of sauces available. They have sauces ranging from mild to very spicy which accentuates the taste and flavor profile. The wings are reasonably priced and available in various quantities in both bone and boneless form. The restaurant is located in the Metrowest area which is about 20 to 30 minute drive from the main tourist hub of Universal and Disney. Well worth the drive.

Conveniently located on International Drive (I-Drive) for visitors to the Orlando theme park area, this Halal fast-food restaurant offers an array of American and Middle-Eastern classics. Wings are made to order and available at various quantities. Considering the location is in a tourist area, there is a higher price point for your orders. There is limited parking in front of the shop but public parking lots are not too far from the location. There is a large painted mural of the 3 Holy sites of Islam to admire while you wait for your order.
