Chicken Wings/Buffalo Wings

Page 3 of So by my count there are over a dozen old threads on BGP dedicated to wings and wings restaurants. I thought I'd try seeing about a "master thread... 53 comments | 5410 Views | Go to page 1 →

    When we go out with friends we frequent Abe's Place on Missouri Ave, Ker's Wing House on Ulmerton Road, and the original Hooters on Gulf-To-Bay in Clearwater. I still prefer Beef O'Brady's over most other places.

    The non-breaded wings at Publix are as good as any.
    Breaded wings are straight trash, if you ask me. You can dredge them in a flour or cornstarch was to add to crispiness if you're trying them, but breading is a non-starter, for me. Hooters wings are a hard no.

    I don't know about other locations, but the one in Clearwater has non-breaded "naked" wings and they are as good any wing I've ever had.

    The last time I was at the one in Lexington they had the smoked naked, dry rubbed wings. They were on par with pies and pints as far as chain restaurants go. They weren't as large but tasted great.

    Just had some wings at Mac's Pizza Pub.

    Their wings are perfectly fried. I typically like my wings smothered in sauce. Waiter told me to try sauce on the side. They were legit.

    Cheese fries are the real deal too.

    It's the same place that was a BW3, then Dunker in Cold Spring.

    Beer selection is A+ too for those who like the crafties.

    I’ll second River City Drafthouse as having great wings. Every time the wife and I head to Bellarmine for my son, we stop there. In NKY, I still will stick with Knuck ‘n Futz, mainly because they are so close to home. They aren’t as good as they used to be, but are still solid. My favorite wings in Cincy are Knockback Nats. I simply love smoked wings.

    Wings are such a simple item.
    I’ve never had a “bad” wing....

    I make mine at home, cold smoked then fried. No breading and some bdubs spicy garlic or a homemade buffalo sauce.

    It’s tough to mess up wings...

    They have an excellent beer selection there. I'll have to try their wings soon.

    The Four Mile Pig within Alexandria Pig has some great wings. I'd definitely recommend the dry rub. Get a side of fries too with some of their bourbon BBQ sauce. Excellent. Have Go Hop Yourself or two and you're all set.

    Wife & I had dinner at KSR Bar & Grille. I'm gonna say their wings may have been the best I've had. Fall of the bone tender and not highly breaded. Very ,very good!

    I've heard from a few people that if you ever go there, you should definitely get their wings.

    I eat a lot of Publix non-breaded.

    Sometimes I spice them up with one of these.

    Worst National Chicken Wing Day, ever. I will never go to the Buffalo Wild Wings in Oldsmar, again. In fact, the experience was so bad, I may never go to BWW anywhere else, either.
