This place is fried food paradise! It's how one Yelper describes Lewey's. They do have garlic seafood offerings as well as hot, delicious wings.

"I was visiting a friend but I asked him where is the great wing place they set this place down the road from their house. When I tell you these wings were delicious and flavorful they were insanely good at least for me. They were quite delicious crispy and salty. The best part was I took some home and when I reheated them they tasted delicious!," write Just. T.
