Wing Fix brings its American-style comfort food to Coorparoo Square
Let’s be real, nothing soothes the soul (and quells hunger) quite like a juicy burger or a handful of saucy chicken wings. The team at Wing Fix knows this, which is why they’ve refined its menu to focus on these two elements (they also nail fries as well, to be fair). After conquering tastebuds with their Morningside eatery, the Wing Fix crew opened a larger space at Coorparoo Square back in March. With an upbeat atmosphere and much more elbow room for waving a drumstick or two around, this outlet is perfectly suited to those who are craving the warm embrace of some American-style fare.
When Peter and Ross Jacobi officially opened the Coorparoo Square outpost of their thriving burger and fried-chicken concept Wing Fix in March, they had a slight inkling they were racing against the clock. Headlines about the global spread of COVID-19 were popping up with more frequency, and the opening-day celebrations of their new location had the potential to attract hundreds of burger-hungry punters, running the risk of being postponed by a council-mandated shutdown. Thankfully the event went off without a hitch – Wing Fix managed to squeeze the celebrations in mere weeks before the city-wide shutdown. Like most hospitality operators, once the lockdown was enacted Peter and Ross were forced to pivot their service model to suit the new conditions, finding that their product was ready-built for takeaway and delivery orders. Between the concept’s two locations, Wing Fix managed to survive the rough patch that stretched from March to June, eventually opening up the venue properly once dining restrictions eased. The Coorparoo Square location, which sits snugly in the centre of the precinct’s interior dining strip, marks the next step in Wing Fix’s evolution. After starting life as a market stall and food truck, Peter and Ross opened a successful bricks-and-mortar pitstop in Morningside in 2019, which itself has grown from a cosy 12 seats to 40 (the group will be closing the Morningside location at the end of August ahead of an expansion to Newmarket in November). Wing Fix Coorparoo Square, by comparison, boasts space for 80 patrons across interior and street-front spaces, a much larger kitchen and the kind of bright and lively aesthetic (think crisp white-tiled walls, cushy orange booths and luminous neon signage) the Jacobi brothers have longed to implement.
When it comes to the grub, American-style comfort food remains the central focus of Wing Fix’s menu. As the name hints, chicken wings are one of the main offerings, with servings of six, nine, 12 and 16 bone-in wings or boneless tenders available lathered in your choice of buffalo, honey soy, garlic parmesan, BBQ bourbon and Nashville-style hot sauce. On the other side of the menu is Wing Fix’s burger selection, which has been the biggest area of growth since Morningside’s opening. Burger lovers can sink their chompers into old-school cheeseburgers, truffle cheeseburgers, barbecue beef and bacon, buttermilk-marinated fried-chicken burgers, flame-grilled mushroom burgers and more (gluten-free options are available), with a side of onion rings, slaw or fries (naked or loaded with Angus beef and melted cheese, or slow-cooked American beef chilli) to help fill in the gaps. Tap beers, thick shakes and soft drinks are on hand to help wash your feast down, and in the coming months the crew will add beer towers and a range of boozy ‘Lit’shakes to the mix, which will assuredly help get the party started. For now, Peter and Ross are keen to keep building momentum, with another location on the way the team are eager to keep the quality on point, making sure that comfort food will always be available even in the toughest of times.
