Cuckoos Chicken House

I am notorious for my forgetfulness, and love to eat out. To keep from accidentally eating twice at a place that I didn't like, I decided to start "reviewing" the restaurants we visit while we're here in Colorado. If you're ever passing through, maybe we can take you to one of our favorites :)

One place we have eaten repeatedly is Cuckoos. They are a locally owned and operated sports bar. 

Their wings, whether bone-in or boneless, are phenomenal. They have a method of cooking them that makes them tender but crispy, and the sauces they offer are delicious. The cooking process is called "broasting" and this is how their website describes it:

"...[Our process involves a marinade] that gives our chicken flavor inside and out, and then deep frying under pressure that seals in the the foods' natural juices and flavors. This results in very little oil being absorbed into the food, so our chicken is crispy on the outside, and moist and delicious on the inside ~ along with being healthier than fried chicken."

Because it's a sports bar, and a little noisier than most restaurants, we feel comfortable letting the kids make noise and be themselves. They even have a small kid's menu. One order of Deep Fried Mac & Cheese Bites feeds both of them and gives us fries to split between the four of us. I always get a pound of boneless wings in their honey bbq sauce. Mike gets bone-in wings and always chooses a different combination of sauces. He doesn't recommend the Honey Garlic or the Apricot Sting sauces (very watery) but has enjoyed the Rancher's Choice (low heat), and all of their hot sauces (Honey Chipotle, Asian Persuasion , Old Yeller’s, Brutal Wings, Thai Chile).

This is a restaurant we visit for lunch during the week probably once a month. Love them.
