Wing Fingers is a restaurant on 1043 Johnston St. that offers boneless and traditional wings with sauce options that include hot honey, bourbon barbecue, lemon pepper, curry, buffalo, and strawbenero. The wings are served over sides, such as coleslaw or pepper jack mac and cheese.
"We're trying to do gourmet wings," Hackney says. "You're not just getting meat with sauce on it. We use a garnish. All of our food comes on a bed of something, like coleslaw or pepper jack mac and cheese, and then it gets a topping."
The restaurant's signature strawbenero — strawberry habanero — is topped with diced strawberries.
In addition to wings, Wing Fingers also serves burgers, chicken sandwiches, fries, mozzarella sticks and fried jalapenos.
Hackney handles the food side of things as the executive chef, and Cooper handles the business side of things.
"My goal was to help John get into that position of head chef," Cooper says.
"And after this, I want to find more people who know what they want to do but don't necessarily have the means to do it and help them make it happen."
