The Smoking Gun located on the corner of 6th and Market in the Gaslamp Quarter has just started their all you can eat Chicken Drumettes and Nugz night from 5-10pm on Thursdays! Guests of the casual “throwback” restaurant and bar can select their fare from a menu contained in a CD case with the cover looking like a Bone (s) Thugs -n-harmony album, but a play on words as Bone(s) nugz-n-harmony.  The inside of the cover lets guests choose from a variety of sauces for their braised chicken drumettes or boneless wings (nugz) each served with either tots or home-made potato thick chips.

You will not leave hungry (that’s for sure)

GQA Staff Picks:

  • Sherry and I got a chance to try a plethora of savory “nugz” and drumettes. we ordered the sweet and sour drumettes, chimichurri nugz, truffle-garlic parmesan nugz and pineapple habanero drumettes.
  • My favorite was the chimichurri nugz which were perfectly seasoned with all the notes of a well developed chimichurri, and the truffle-garlic parmesan nugz.  Eating those delicious morsels kept me coming back for more.
  • Sherry who likes things spicy really enjoyed the pineapple habanero drumettes. If you are into extremely spicy there is a sauce called the “Double Stinger” that is mixed with both ghost and scorpion chilis!
  • Patrons can choose 1 flavor per order, and also can dip their chicken in homemade ranch sauce.
