Hot Sauce and Panko looks a little like a convenience store, with wire racks and floor-to-ceiling shelves with every kind of hot sauce you’ve never heard of. But the wings are actually the main attraction here. There are lots of different preparations to choose from, and you can get wings with a waffle for $10.99 - we’re fans of doing that with the Korean wings. This place does a serious takeout business, but there are two small standing tables inside, so if you just need something quick, you can eat here, too.
