The first thing you'll notice about the world-beating wings at CJ's is that they are some real plumpies—they look like those giant turkey legs you get at the carnival more than they do snack food. The secret is that these wings are broasted, or pressure-fried, which results in a thick, shaggy crust that clings to the chicken like concrete and delivers a ferocious crunch. And rather than a rainbow of wings flavors, this takeout storefront on Pico offers just one: Boss Sauce, available mild or hot, which tastes a mixture of buffalo and sweet chili sauce, with something else you can't quite put your finger on (honey mustard?). Either way, it's proof that sometimes one option is all you need.
