Just left this place. Hadn't been there in probably 10 years. Here's what happened:
after my husband gave his drink order, the waitress returned, sat next to him and asked for our drink order again. We had to remind her we had already given it to her.
Then, we placed our food order and after about 20 minutes, she returns and says the order never got into the computer and asked for the order again. She said it would be 5 minutes. After another 15 minutes, no food. The owner, Jerry Allen walked in and we were up and ready to leave. Yes, I was upset. Forty five minutes after walking in and no food! And there were only two other patrons in the place!!!
What a joke! Mr. Allen kept saying, "I just got here! I am giving you your food for free!"
What a fool!! Did he not realize he had a bigger problem on his hands? A complete idiot for a waitress.
Don't bother folks. Horrible service and average food that I can get anywhere else in town.

Katy's is a great local place! Good food, great staff! Must try the rotisserie wings!

Strictly a local is awful, frozen crap you could buy at the store and rough clientele. The reviews are bogus, the place is dirty, the service is lousy and the food...well I already said, the worst. Don't waste your time, this dump needs to close.

We love katy's. We always have. But there is one thing missing that I wish they would bring back!
We used to always have this waitress, Brooke. We loved her, and after she left, we found ourselves going to katys less and less. We want her back. I still see her over the in bar from time to time. But I promise, if she came back, we would not be the only ones eating there alot more!

they (employees)jump at any chance to close the place early, i wont waste my time calling about the hours as they always seem to be closing in 20 minutes. you get what you pay for when it comes to employees!

For the short time I lived in Wilmington, NC the folks at Katy's made me feel like a Diva!!!!!! Whenever I went in to do Bob's Karaoke I was protected by some of the most handsome(M), friendly(J) and sexy(Al) bouncer's in America. Not only did I enjoy the GARLIC wings, fried green tomatoes and fried pickles I met so many new people that we're equally friendly. I love this place and miss it so much. I miss everything about Katy's.

This place is awesome! I don't know why they get the complaints. Where else in this country can you get good chicken wings for 29cents? I sit on the lounge side so I can smoke and always get excellent service and a good buzz too. So quit your b##chin and go grab some cheap wings and a cold beer!

I am local to Wilmington, NC and have eaten at many restaurants in the region. Katy's is has the worst food I have ever eaten. The quality is poor and the establishment is dirty.

I would not recommend eating here ever!!!!

Rude people, terrible food, bad atmosphere. can't say enough about how terrible this place is. The food is overpriced and of low quality, can't imagine how hungover the cooks must be to serve food this disgusting. Don't waste your money and time, they don't deserve your business.

the owner is crazy and cheap and fires and hires a entire new staff every 6 months.

Has anyone ever seen Joe Biden in there?

We eat here all the time and love it! We always have excellent service, and the food is great.

review_stars 01/08/2008 - TastyDumpling
These are the best wings by far!
We have been lucky and the past two times have had Brooke as our waitress. She always remembers what the kids drink & is quick w/ a joke or to get you anything you need!! We think she is great!!
The Teriyaki wings have become our favorite favorite....but the Garlic & the Dynamos are also wicked good!
I look forward to our next visit there!!

This place has tasty wings but they have raised the "special" price from 25 to 29 cents per wing. I go just for the wings. Some of the wait staff has improved, the new guy is superb and cares about the customers. The group of previous girs who I affectionately have developed nicknames for #1 hotpants, and #2 buxom mankiller. The first wears shorts that supply a new definition of camel toes and #2 is only intereseted in serving you if you are male, and relatively hot. Between the two of them they are rude, inconsistent and lack professionalism. The #2 even introduced herself as the lead wait staff when I made my first complaint. I talked to the new guy who told me Katy had threatened all the bad seeds and would be getting rid of them with any more complaints. From what I hear the complaints are regular so hang in we may get some humans by and by. Until then, don't tip.

The food came quickly and the fried green tomatoes were great! highly recommend it!

This place was a zoo! It took only 10 minutes to get a seat, but another 20 before someone came with water and to give us a menu; then about 30 minutes to get our food (burgers, salads, simple items). It was so cold I had to drink 4 cups of coffee so I wouldn't freeze. My seat was very cold and it was dirty. Don't think I'll go back there.
