The Covington News - - Business - By Rachel Oswald

Fans of Lucy’s Wings and Things in New­born will be pleased to know a sec­ond restau­rant lo­ca­tion has opened not far from Ge­or­gia Perime­ter Col­lege.

Lucy’s Wings and Restau­rant is lo­cated at the in­ter­sec­tion of Ga. High­way 11 and Ga. High­way 142 next to the BP gas sta­tion. Owner Keith Ma­son said he de­cided to ex­pand his busi­ness there in the hopes of catch­ing through traf­fic from the col­lege.

“ I just knew this area was go­ing to grow a lot,” Ma­son said.

De­spite only be­ing 21 years old, this is Ma­son’s sec­ond restau­rant Ma­son. He opened his first eatery at the age of 18. Both restau­rants are named for his mother Ma­son said.

Serv­ing wings, chicken ten­ders, fish and shrimp, sal­ads, sand­wiches, cheese­burg­ers, omelets and pan­cakes, Lucy’s has plenty of menu items to sooth the small- town ap­petite.

Ma­son said he is par­tic­u­larly proud of the restau­rant’s chicken wings which come in mild, medium, hot, ex­tra hot, bar­be­cue, teriyaki, su­isaki, spicy bar­be­cue, lemon pep­per, zesty lemon pep­per and swan­gin’ fla­vors. Ma­son said the wing sauce recipes are his own in­ven­tion.

“ Peo­ple love our wings,” Ma­son said. “ I have peo­ple come clear across the county for our wings.”

Wing or­ders range in size from a 10- wing or­der ($ 6.15) to a 100- wing or­der ($ 49.95).

Ma­son also rec­om­mended the restau­rant’s seafood se­lec­tion which in­cludes cat­fish filets, grouper, cod­fish, fried shrimp and fried oys­ters.

“ They’re al­ways fresh, never frozen,” said Ma­son of his fish. “ We bread all of our own shrimp, fish and homemade hush­pup­pies.”

Fish and shrimp dishes come with fries and coleslaw and/ or hush­pup­pies. Prices range from $ 7.25 to $ 9.25

“ You won’t find a can opener in the kitchen,” Ma­son promised. “ Ev­ery­thing’s made from scratch.”

Lucy’s boasts a variety of sand­wiches in­clud­ing ap­ple wood ba­con cheese­burg­ers, Road Is­land Reds, Po- Boy hoa­gies, patty melts, Philly cheese steaks and chicken mush­room melts. Sand­wiches come with fries and a pickle.

Lucy’s also fea­tures a chil­dren’s menu with hot dogs, corn dogs, grilled cheese and chicken ten­ders. Prices range from $ 2.65 to $ 4.98.

Break­fast is served from 6 a. m. – 10: 30 a. m. Break­fast of­fer­ings in­clude toaster sand­wiches ($ 2.89), omelets ($ 4.50-$ 4.85), pan­cakes ($ 4.25), French toast ($ 3.85), homemade cat­head bis­cuit sand­wiches ($. 89$ 3.35) and break­fast plat­ters ($ 3.99-$ 4.99).

Lunch is served from 10: 30 a. m. – 3 p. m. For $ 7 ( in­clud­ing tax) cus­tomers can or­der the Lucy’s lunch spe­cial which comes with one meat, three veg­gies, bread and a drink.

On Sun­days there is also a turkey and dress­ing spe­cial. Car­ry­out or­ders are avail­able.
