Long Wong’s

I can’t review this eating establishment because I’ve never been inside. However the eclectic (or maybe I should say ‘strange’) collections of artifacts on the outside always attracts attention. This crazy looking place has been here a long time so it must have appeal to some.

I believe this is the original Long Wong's (over on McDowell in Scottsdale?). The one in Tempe (if it's still there) was also very deco. I've been going to Long Wong's since the late 1970s. Originally they were famous for foot-long hot dogs but in recent decades they are known for their chicken wings. They're the best in town in my book! They have closed several of their stores in the past few years ~ and I can't believe it's because their foot isn't good but probably more due to economic conditions.

I maxed the photo and agree that the "collection" certainly is eclectic. Probably cluttered might be a better description. But, who cares if the food is good, and Kathy seems to think so!

I bet the decor inside is just as much fun. I don't know about the food...but the pigeons certainly seem to be waiting for a large table to open up.

I'm guessing the one in Tempe is probably where the Gin Blossoms got their start? I've never eaten at any of the Long Wong's but they are legendary enough that I have heard of them.

I've lived in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe...but don't remember Long Wong's...which is probably a good thing...it doesn't look like a place I would patronize...too weird.

What a fun collection of stuff! Looks like a fun place to me.
