Last Tuesday, Leslie and I were honored to have been invited to attend the preliminary opening of The Wicked Wheel, and what a treat it was!
The décor of the restaurant has a Biker Theme, and the bar is set up with motorcycles as seats. There are vintage bikes hanging from the ceiling. The restaurant is like a museum for Bikers.
We were greeted by the friendly hostess staff as we arrived and seated immediately to enjoy lunch. Once seated, we were promptly approached by our server Taylor. She was so nice and informative to our questions about the menu.
We ordered our drinks and looked over the new menu with enthusiasm, deciding on the appetizer of “Hog Shrimp”, which consisted of (2) healthy skewers of bacon-wrapped shrimp served with a marvelous “Wicked Sauce”. We were both impressed by the generous serving of this appetizer and the sauce was AMAZING. This appetizer is on the menu for just $7.99, which is a very good price for the amount of shrimp you get.
Leslie ordered the “Cheese Burger Burnout” with her choice of melted blue cheese. The burger was so huge that she had to eat it with a fork. I ordered the “Wicked Wedge”, consisting of a wedge of iceberg, Roma tomatoes, red onions, croutons, and a very good blue cheese dressing. I also ordered the “Gulf Shrimp” which came with a very tasty corn muffin.
We finally splurged on a dessert to share. We decided on the Banana Foster Cheesecake and it was to die for. It was so rich that you would have to split it. We absolutely enjoyed it to the hilt.
We were so honored to be invited to this preliminary opening of Eric Buskell’s new restaurant. It was a wonderful experience and we wish the best of luck to The Wicked Wheel …..Do yourself a favor and go try it out… We hear the fried chicken is amazing!
