If you are going to have chicken wings & cold beer in New Smyrna Beach, Merk's is the place to go. If you are not familiar with the area they are located next to the Bowling Alley and the bait shop on the North Causeway. The wings are great, they have a variety of sauces which include mild, medium, hot, insane, garlic, barbecue, teriyaki and my favorite which is frankenstein, this is a mix of all the flavors and is very tasty! They also have a full menu including appetizers like quesadilla rolls, jalapeƱo poppers, smoked fish dip with crackers, sweet potato fries and other items. They have entrees including Ahi Tuna, New York Strip Steak, steamed shrimp, fish and chips, burgers and a full line of sandwiches and burritos.

Families are welcome but get the kids out by about 8pm when it becomes a bar. They do have happy hour starting at 4pm. There is no where in the place that you can't see a TV and the service is great. I usually go for lunch, it is less crowded and Nancy will greet you with a big smile.

The street address is 193 N. Causeway, New Smyrna Beach, Florida 32169. Telephone 386-427-1177.
