Yet even if wings are not your thing, Tree’s has got you covered with amazing dishes. Try one of the made-fromscratch-daily soups designed by Chef Kauwela Perreira, who originally hails from Hawaii. “Other than cooking the wings every day and cooking the ribs, I love my soups. We change our soups daily, and we make all the soups from scratch. I love making soups,” Perreira said. “It’s my favorite thing to do. We have Wisconsin beer cheese soup, split pea with black forest ham, conch chowder, crawfish gumbo and French onion soup. We’ve come a long way over the years.” After three years at Tree’s Wings, Perreira is more than just talent in the kitchen. “We are super happy to have him,” Townsend said. “He is absolutely an incredible kitchen manager, and he’s a good man on top of being a good chef. He’s a lead-by-example rather than leadby-yelling kind of guy.” 56

Tree’s Wings is also a great place to have a little extra fun, with karaoke every Friday from 8 to 11 p.m., trivia every Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m., and half off happy hour every single day of the week from 3 to 6 p.m. Don’t want to leave your furry buddy behind? The team welcomes dogs to visit the covered outdoor seating area. “We love when people bring their puppies. We will bring out doggie bowls of water, cook them up hamburger patties — whatever those puppies want,” Townsend said. “We are very dog friendly.” If you aren’t comfortable coming in to sit down, that’s OK too. Tree’s Wings has the largest delivery area in the western communities, delivering wings to all of Wellington and Royal Palm Beach, most of Loxahatchee and The Acreage, and much of suburban West Palm Beach. “We are working on everybody else’s comfort level. We are just trying to be

accommodating to everyone’s needs,” Townsend said. So, if the hand-cut curly fries aren’t enough to get the kids through the door, and noise level is a concern, Tree’s has a unique layout with one portion of the restaurant set aside for a quieter experience. The lounge is family friendly and away from the special evening events, but still has a full bar available to customers. After setting foot inside, don’t forget to sign up for the free VIP program.
