Who's A Fan Of Buffalo Wings?

Seeing a previous thread on spicy/hot foods, it got me thinking about possibly one of my favorite party foods of all time. BUFFALO WINGS! For those of us here that are fans, do you have a preferred flavor? Where do you get your favorites? Do you make them yourselves? Please share.

For me it would have to be the wings at Papa Johns Pizza. yeah I know I may get flack for this but they are always so juicy (not dry) and are usually smothered in possibly one of the best wings sauces that isn't home made. The skin just peels off and there is always so much chicken. I've had the wings at Wing Stop, Wings n' More and Buffalo Wild Wings but they're either extremely dry, have little meat on them or their skin is rock hard/over cooked. As far as flavors I always stick with the original. I've tried some of their others but was never a fan.

There is a local restaurant by my house that makes the best I have ever had...always big, moist and their hot sauce is ridiculous! Thus the name - "nuclear sauce"

Hell yes! Buffalo wings are awesome - I'm always on the lookout for a new place to try.

Personally, I prefer boneless wings (or strips, or whatever you want to call them). There's a place called The Slice near my apartment that has great boneless buffalo wings. There is/was a place in East Providence, RI called Wings & Things or Wing Stop (I forget which) that has awesome boneless buffalo-garlic chunks.

Oddly enough, the Cheesecake Factory has great buffalo strips. Chili's has decent ones.

Buffalo strips + blue cheese = awesome.

You will, but I've found that their wings are nothing if consistent. Decent sized (I hate it when you get wings that look like they came off of a parrot), properly cooked, and generally well sauced. On the other hand Domino's new wings are pretty bad. While I don't mind breaded wings, they are the norm in many spots in central New York, these were bad. Soggy too thick breading and bad sauces.

Although I'm a noob when it comes to Buffalo wings, I can infer that they are not buffalo wings as buffalos have no wings. So it is chicken, I suppose, but why the weird misnoma? Can someone with a modicum of cultural knowledge explain?

They are indeed chicken wings that come with a sauce called buffalo sauce, named after the city of Buffalo, NY where the recipe was supposedly created.

I have been to the Anchor Bar once in my life, the original one on Main in Buffalo, but I didn't order the wings.


While I do like the old stand-by of wings in a buffalo sauce... every now and then the fried chicken wings from a Chinese restaurant taste like the greatest thing in the world.

As for the restaurant otherwise known as Buffalo Wild Wings, burn them, burn them all!!! F'ing disgusting, they can't even get a flippin burger right (who the hell f's up a burger!?!?), service is always terrible and their wings are mediocre at best. Their sauces aren't too bad though I'll give them that. And I've reluctantly gone to several of their locations, on both coasts.

One of my favorite wings comes from the trashier version of Hooters known as Show-me's which can be found in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Missouri. Their hot wing taste like a stick of butter and I've found whole slices of jalapeno in the sauce for spicy barbecue. Not to mention every day $1.50 Keystone Light drafts.

I LOVE BUFFALO WINGS!!!

There is a place here in town called Crazy Weiners I've been trying to get Adam on Man vs Food to check out. I've never ever had a problem with spicy food. You put it in front of me and I'll take it, no problem. This place however, I ate two of their wings and I was dying. It took pretty much the entire afternoon to fully get over it. Then, that night when I was taking my contacts out, despite washing my hands, some of the residue got into my eyes, and it was definitely on par with pepper spray. Anyway, this place has a challenge...15 wings in 30 minutes and you get a picture on the wall, tshirt, and $25 bar tab. I usually get one or two of these wings whenever I go in there along with my regular order.

While not my favorite, they are at least good enough to order along side a pizza.

We have one here in town, I like them. I like that I can actually place my order online so they are ready when I arrive. Otherwise, if you order in person this place is pretty slow.

Yum Yum Yum! I love wings too !   

There's a small chain in Seattle called Wing Dome (after our old stadium, King Dome). They have a great menu of wings with a choice of how hot you wan them 1-6 or, if you dare, 7. yikes! I'm more of a 4 kind of guy. But they also make flavored wings.

http://www.thewingdome.com/uploads/WING%20CARD1.pdf

I also enjoy making them on my own. Costco has a good selection of wings ( you need to cut them with a good knife...my Wusthof set works great). I also found a great recipe from Alton Brown from the Food Network. He recommends steaming the wings for like 20 minutes, then placing them on a rack in the fridge for an hour. This allows the fat to drip off and you can easily wipe off any excess. It's great because less smoke in the kitchen. Bake them for like 45 minutes and then I toss them in the sauce (Tabasco and butter). Mmmmmmmmm.

Cheers,
Kirk

I can't stand Buffalo sauce but put BBQ sauce or any of the other myriad of flavors on them and its in my top three foods for sure.

Hooters wings + ranch + beer is epic. I always feel so bad after, though.

I'm not particularly keen on chicken wings, but love Chili's Boneless Buffalo Wings. Very very nice. I was very disappointed when the company who ran Chili's in the UK went under - they had a restaurant in my home town.

Haven't found them much over here yet, so they remain a treat to be looked forward to when I travel to the US.

Love the wings. Buff Wing Wings, not good. Hooters is good once in a while.


Got some great hole in the wall places for wings. But as hot as we love them, they suck without blue cheese sauce!


And that boneless crap is for tarts.

Same boat here. I hate the mere smell of buffalo sauce, but slather some sweet BBQ sauce on just about anything and I'll eat it.

Buffalo Wild Wings

I honestly don't know why people go there for wings. Even on "wing night", they're more expensive than most others, they charge for ranch and celery, and the sauces leave something to be desired.

Quoting Fly2HMO (Reply 11):

Well, that's only because they have so gorram many that they had to get a few right. Half of those sauces/seasonings don't even belong near chicken, let alone a chicken wing.

I'll stick to Zipps, Native New Yorker, and Doc&Eddies. They're cheap and oh-so-good. Especially with a Kilt Lifter... Tempe actually produces decent stuff I guess.

I agree. I like to actually buy the sauce and make my wings at home if I have a house party or gathering of some kind.

Me too. My freshman year of college, they had 20 cent wings on Monday's at Buffalo Wild Wings, and my friends and I went EVERY week (despite the mediocrity...come on, what freshman in college is going to pass up a dozen wings for $2.40?). Now, I only eat them like twice a year, and feel guilty about it with each bite. FML...
