Since 2009, Alondra Hot Wings, 515 W. Main St., has been the go-to place for finger-licking hot wings, crafted pizzas, and appetizing sandwiches. This family-operated company first opened in 2002 on Alondra Boulevard, Paramount, and now has multiple locations in Montebello and Whittier (for quick-serve only). The Kazarian brothers are very proud to carry on their family’s great pizza recipes and be able to serve them to the community. Alondra Hot Wings is a family oriented eatery with family style American food where everyone has choices to share and enjoy every meal.
Although it has been a difficult situation with the COVID pandemic, Alondra remains to continue to serve their customers either via takeout or outdoor dining. “We are staying afloat with our services and labor,” said Danny Kazarian, co-owner of Alondra Hot Wings. “We are trying to give as much as we can with what we can do. I am proud of our staff to continue providing good service and making the best out of this situation that we are all in.”
While adhering to city codes and health and state guidelines, Alondra Hot Wings offers outdoor patio dining right behind the restaurant with a large tent canopy and accommodating tables with limited seating. The white picket fence and hanging lights set an elegant environment for diners to enjoy a comfortable experience. Safety and cleanliness is the focus, and they make sure to keep their customers and staff safe by sanitizing every area and pieces of equipment. “The process of being able to offer outdoor dining was an exhausting experience,” Danny said. “We had to apply for a permit from the city, get approved by the fire department, be certified by the health department, and much more added to it, but it is worth the hard work to be able to open for dining because our customers love our food to be eaten fresh. There are going to be a lot more challenges, but we have to roll with the punches.”
For their style of food, Alondra is fortunate to be able to offer takeout. “Our inventory has been a challenge, but we were able to get our supplies and ingredients without having to be in a shortage,” Danny said. “Our recipe for our pizza has been in our family for over five generations, and we will continue to pass it down for more generations to come.” Alondra Hot Wings menu items remained but added affordable specials and packages for customers to still enjoy their food during these hard times, such as the 16 x 16 deal, which comes with one regular topping 16-inch pizza and 16 pieces of chicken wings with two sauces for $29.99.
Popular dishes, such as the chicken wings, come in 17 flavors that include lemon pepper, garlic parmesan, hot buffalo, and mango habanero. The signature pizzas like the Godfather, Margherita, Buffalo Chicken, and the build-your-own are available in 8-inch or 16-inch sizes. All dishes are crafted with their original in-house made sauces and dressings. Alondra signature beverages such as the Michelada, Margarita, “It’s Lit” and “Endless-Summer” drinks are available for dine-in or bottled for take-out/delivery orders. Taps Brewery recently joined the Alondra Hot Wing family, and a future venture is on the plan. Their selections of Taps on drafts craft beers makes it a perfect pair to go with their delicious chicken wings.
“Alondra has good food. They have good pizza, and good wings.” complimented Miguel, an Alondra diner.
