The Scoop: Just Chicken to roll out food truck in June

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Just Chicken is spreading its wings in June with the addition of a bright yellow food truck.

The restaurant, located at 5942 Delmar Blvd., in St. Louis, offers up a menu of all things chicken: wings, sandwiches, burgers and more. However, owner Antwann Binion said the truck’s menu will focus on solely on wings, all fried to order on board and tossed in one of six sauces like teriyaki or the sweet-spicy house sauce. Additionally, there will be house-cut french fries and sweet potato fries.

Binion said adding a food truck has been on his mind since he first opened Just Chicken in May 2014. “I first thought of the idea when I was visiting my son in L.A.,” he said. “I saw so many food trucks lined up. I thought it would be feasible to make Just Chicken mobile and expand the business in that way.”

He believes the brick-and-mortar location will benefit from the increased publicity that the truck will provide. “I want to reach more people, especially those that don’t visit the store,” he said.

Binion said the truck will operate in both St. Louis City and County, with frequent stops at corporate campuses like Numotion, Wells Fargo, The People’s Clinic and Ameren. He also hopes to establish stops near Forest Park, Washington University and Charter.

Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest unofficial American holiday of the year, and as with all our holidays, it comes with it’s own traditional menu of delicious eats. Step up your game day grub with five recipes for our favorite football food:

1. Get smoky with a big pot of Smoked White Bean Chili. (And before you cry foul, we’ve got the traditional red chili fans covered, too.)

The List: Canh Ga Chien at Mi Linh

Last year, I loved Mi Linh’s Canh Ga Chien so much that it made my Top 5 Dishes of 2013 list. Lightly breaded with rice flour and cornstarch, deep-fried and then sauteed with butter, red pepper flakes, garlic and diced onions, these chicken wings made me wish I could eat them every day. Then there was a shake-up in the family-run restaurant, and head chef Nelson Tran – brother of owner Dee Dee Tran – was out. How are the wings now? During a return visit, the dish was overloaded with scallions and garlic, but the light and crispy coating still cracked with the first bite, the meat was still juicy, the gentle heat still warmed my lips, and the wings still glistened – as did my fingers – with butter and oil. My verdict? I’m still eating them.

A Smoky Souvenir: Bogart’s smoked chicken wings

Friday, April 19th, 2013



One day while waiting to order a slab of Bogart’s famed ribs, we were bestowed with a free sample of smoked chicken wings. Turns out the Soulard smokehouse’s ’cue crew hands these little gems out for free to patient patrons when the line gets long. Two bites, and we didn’t care how long we had to wait; we just wanted another … and another. We’re helpless against the temptation of a smoked wing, but these charred beauties are truly special: tender, meaty and packed with smoky flavor. By the time we got to the front of the line, our order had changed. When it comes to barbecue, pork may reign supreme; but don’t be surprised if these wings convert you.

The Scoop: Former Mia Rosa chef de cuisine ventures into chicken wings

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

120610_stlwingsWhen Mia Rosa shuttered in August, Bobby Tessler, the chef de cuisine at the Italian eatery in The Grove, decided it was time to open his own place. Although Tessler has accumulated 15 years of cheffing experience, including time in the kitchens at the now defunct Once Upon a Vine, The Wild Flower in the Central West End and Remy’s Kitchen and Wine Bar in Clayton, he didn’t want to operate a full-service, upscale restaurant. Rather, he decided to focus on one of his favorite comfort foods: chicken wings. Thus, St. Louis Wing Co. was born.

When the chicken wing joint opens at 9816 Manchester Road in Rock Hill, diners will get a taste of wings with creative flavors like coconut curry, kalamata olive and feta, spicy jalapeño and sesame ginger teriyaki. In addition to the dozen sauce varieties for those bone-in and boneless wings, Tessler will serve up such sides as sweet potato fries with Caribbean jerk chili mayo, fried macaroni wedges, cole slaw, baked beans and other wing accompaniments.

Tessler hopes to kick off action at his 40-seat lunch and dinner locale by Super Bowl Sunday, scheduled for Feb. 6.
