On a dreary, rainy Thursday afternoon, the Lunch Bunch had its spirits lifted by the cozy atmosphere and comfort food provided by Val’s Heavenly Wings & Seafood.
The restaurant just opened on September 10 at 7 Robert Smalls Parkway, Suite #1, in the small shopping center next to Staples.
We welcomed our new General Sales Manager Buck Boone to his first Lunch Bunch, and we were treated to a giant sampling — it was more than the five of us could even finish.
From the 10 flavors of buffalo wings, we tried the mild, lemon pepper, garlic pepper and teriyaki. They were all finger-licking good, but April and Elizabeth liked the teriyaki the best.
Valerie Donaldson, the vivacious owner, kept bringing out more yummy plates. We had chicken tenders with honey mustard sauce, fried shrimp as well as fried whiting filets, which Kim declared her favorite.
The two all-beef Nathan’s hot dogs were as good as those found at the ball park. If you like your dog with a little spice, try Val’s special red onion sauce.
Elizabeth and I devoured the plate of cheese fries — so satisfying for my preggie cravings.
If you can save room for dessert, several flavors of ice cream are offered.
Valerie has every reason to be proud of her menu. She said her family has always run restaurants, so cooking is in her blood, and she’s always dreamed of opening an establishment of her own.
Val’s is open Monday – Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Call 843-379-8257 to place a pick up order or visit www.valsheavenlywings.com.
