ABOUT US

 

It was 1965. Gas was 31 cents. The mini skirt debuted in London. And in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Shorty (Harold Prebish) and Wags (Dwane Wagner) met through a mutual friend. At the time, Shorty was a welder and Wags was a cook at a Mexican food restaurant.

 

Fourteen years after this meeting, Wags asked Shorty if he wanted to open a fast food restaurant. They found a location in South Minneapolis on 38th Street and Nicollet. The business was a small café with very low rent, which they purchased for $10,000, borrowing $5,000 from a friend as a down payment and putting the rest on contract for deed. For 37 years at that location, Shorty and Wags served their famous whole chicken wings, wet battered, deep fried and seasoned with their famous seasoning and sauces on the side.

 

Today, Shorty lives in Longville, Minnesota and, unfortunately, Wags passed away in 2011. But their legacy lives on at “Shorty & Wags Original Chicken Wings”, where Wags’s granddaughter Cookie and her father Jim Chambers (known as Wing Man) have brought the famous Minnesota flavor to the Southwest. Get a taste of what you’ve been missing at their new Gilbert, Arizona location.
