Discover local restaurants’ recipes for their favorite drinks here.

Marco’s Pizza

Marco’s does not only serve pizza. They also have some great tasting chicken wings. Manager Mike Poirier says the deep fried chicken wings are made with fresh, never-frozen chicken and never have batter to gum up the works. They’re all chicken!  These best-selling wings fly out of the restaurant in your choice of four different flavors: mild, medium, hot, and BBQ. Each order comes with either ranch or blue cheese dressing for $6.95.
