0
MILLEDGEVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – There’s a lot more to AJ’s Wings and More than what’s on your plate.

It’s located on North Columbia Street in Milledgeville.

"We call it AJ’s Hot Wings and More, and a lot of people come in here for the more," said Kitchen Manager Frederick Thomas. "Great food, great fun for everyone."

Plus, the only thing as good as the food is the health inspection score–a perfect 100.

Third time is the charm for Taj Indian Restaurant on Riverside Drive–it failed again on October 15th with a 58, after scoring a 56 last week.

Finally, on October 16th, they pulled it up to a 78.



Another restaurant that failed: Sakura Japanese Restaurant on Shurling Drive.

It scored a 61.

The person in charge wasn’t there or didn’t perform well, there was improper eating, drinking, tasting or tobacco use in the restaurant, and they weren’t disposing contaminated food correctly.

It was a tough week for those restaurants, but other scores were good.

But AJ’s Hot Wings and More had that elusive 100, so i thought I’d stop by to see what the "more" was all about.

"It’s the flavor of the wings, and it’s always fresh," said customer Deanna Neal.

Fresh out of the kitchen, which is how kitchen manager Frederick Thomas likes it.

"We have an open kitchen, so everyone gets to see how we prepare our food," said Thomas.

Employees keep it fresh and clean.

"We take pride in being clean, we wipe our areas down, keep our hands clean, keep all of our utensils clean," said Thomas.

But it’s more than just good food.

"They’re always cleaning every time someone leaves," said Neal. "Every time you come in you see them cleaning or doing something to make the workplace better for everyone."

It’s that welcoming and clean atmosphere that customers love.

"We want you to feel like you’re just coming to your friends house," said Thomas. "We welcome you with open arms, we’re going to laugh, we’re going to joke around, we’re going to put a smile on your face."

And that’s why AJ’s Hot Wings and More is making the grade.
