Hidden gem ... on the menu

Amid the fresh Mexican menu offerings at Chico's -- fajitas, burritos, tacos and the popular Enchilada Suisa -- is a hidden gem: Buffalo Chicken Wings.

Buffalo Wings may not be a traditional Mexican food, but they're hot and spicy and pair perfectly with a margarita.

A pound of fresh chicken wings are fried until they are crispy, then doused in a traditional Buffalo hot sauce. They're served with celery and carrot sticks and Ranch dressing for dipping.

The regular price is $8.99, and they're worth it. But on Mondays-Thursdays from 5-7 p.m., you can order them in the cantina area for half price.
