Wild Wing Cafe...

This is the Wild Wing Cafe off of Campbell Station Road at I-40/I-75 in Knoxville. Despite it's location at major crossroads, it's buried behind motels and other retail operations and you almost need a map to actually get to it the first time you drop by. Wild Wing Cafe is a cross between a casual family restaurant and a sports bar/restaurant.

The menu at Wild Wing Cafe is huge, with 7 pages full of food to explore and choose from... We were there for lunch but we couldn't resist these "Boom Boom Shrimp". They were terrific and we could have eaten another platter of them...but it would have spoiled our appetite for our 'main dishes'. Other appetizers included 'Hot Shots', spicy sausage and cheese pastry, and 'Buff Chips', crispy fried chips sprinkled with bleu cheese crumbles & southwest ranch for dipping. There is literally a full page of appetizers to choose from.

Honestly, we didn't get past page 2 of the Wild Wing Cafe's menu... Laurie ordered the 'Ultimate Nachos', spicy taco beef, queso and pico de gallo topped with mixed cheeses, black beans, jalapeno peppers, lettuce, sour cream and salsa. It was very good.
The menu runs from Tex-Mex to BBQ to Wraps and, of course, it includes wings! There are no less than 34 different sauces that you can have your wings tossed in! We'll order some the next time for sure... There are also salads, soups, sandwiches and burgers featured on the menu.

I ordered the 'Baja Fish' Soft Tacos. The taco shells were stuffed with flaky white fish, lightly fried & drizzled with honey lime cilantro marinade. Very nice!
Wild Wing Cafe is located at 11335 Campbell Lakes Drive in Knoxville TN. Phone: 865-777-9464. Website: This is a good place for casual family dining or just a casual meal, especially if you'd like a lot of variety to choose from. Prices are very reasonable.
