Chicken Wings

Postby JarkkoVision on Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:56 am

I love me some chicken wings. Who else does? I mean who doesn't?

What's your favorite type of chicken wings? Where from?

I would have to say my all time favorite would be BBQ from Quaker Steak and Lube. After that it would have to be southwest ranch from this hole in the wall near my house.

I like any kind of wings as long as they are cooked until the skin is crispy.
I hate soggy wings.

Mad Mex has some good wings

Dude I don't know... I love some quality "name the place here fried chicken wings" but Tyson's tequila-lime wings are gooooooooood.

But there was this place in Plum that I worked at and was a huge wings favorite called Smartie Arties.... mmm. good wings. Luckily I remember the recipes. :)

I love Hooters wings....vastly underrated. Anywhere else, I am a huge fan of any kind of "buffalo garlic". We have Wings 2 Go down here.....they are rock solid

Yes, they have to be crispy. That's what makes the dive near my house so awesome. The have perfected wing cooking.

The Southside Saloon in Johnstown makes wings, and their dry-rub, wing dust wings are AMAZING.

I'm also a fan of buffalo wings with some ranch dressing.

Buffalo Bills in New Kensington is by far my favorite. They broil theirs, not fry them but they come out amazing and don't make your stomach hurt due to filling with grease.

Archies on the South Side is right by my house. Not the best in the world, but at $0.15 the price is right.

Smokin Joes on Carson has a thursday night special (that I will probably be participating in tonight during the game if anyone is interested) 40 wings and a pitcher of beer for $12 or $14 something like that.

Arizona Ranch from Quaker Steak and Lube
Caribbean Jerk from Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo from the local Pizza Roma in Cranberry Twp (best wings!!!)

Better yet - who knows of the good wing deals in the area? JClarks right on the very top almost before McKnight road has a 20 cent wing night every Monday.

The Caribbean jerk sauce is awesome at BW3, the chicken-not so much I prefer their boneless wings(nuggets).
ever since I've been buying their sauce, I roll my own.

5th Avenue Grill near the arena has excellent wings, especially the hot dry rub.

Buffalo Blues in Shadyside has awesome wings in a variety of flavors.

Wing Pitt, which was in Oakland but is now closed, had the best wings I have ever had in Pittsburgh. I have no idea why they closed.

Great gyros and fries too. I loved living on Semple. Especially the living room set burning aspects of it.

-Sweet and Hot from McGrogan's in Canonsburg are some of the best wings I've had...just such a good sauce.
-The hot garlic wings from the G-Man in State College are amazing.
-Drover's Inn and Tavern in Wellsburg, WV has, overall, the best quality wings. The sauce is great, the wings are big, and they are always cooked right.
-Quaker Steak makes great sauces, but they are over priced and the actual wing usually sucks.
-Buffalo Wild Wings makes some great sauce, as well, but their wings usually suck, too. I usually go with the chicken finger platter and get like 3 sauces to dip. Also, the one in Robinson has some of the consistently worst service I've ever seen. I refuse to go there anymore because of it.

GOD I LOVE WINGS which probably helps explain why I've got this gut

I am a huge fan of Fat Heads wings.

As far as making them at home, a buddy of mine gave me a good recipe. He cooks them in oil. Then when they are almost done, he puts this glaze on them and grills them up for a minute. The glaze consists of butter, red hot, and maple syrup. Sorry I dont have more specific instructions, but it is delicious.

Hot Shots in South Park always had the best wings. They are HUGE, full size wings. Man, I haven't had those for quite a while now.

I've had wings at the original Quaker Steak and Lube in Sharon. Those are good wings. The satellite stores just aren't up to the same quality.

The best wings I had out of the city where in Buffalo, but not at the Anchor Bar. I've had wings at the Buffalo Head Bar and Gabriel's Gate (same owner). Those wings were just melt in your mouth amazing.

The dryrub wings are awesome.

Think I know what I'm having for dinner later. :thumb:

I think you got lucky. The original QSAL is just about the same quality as every other one of their restaurants. Which is about a 50/50 chance of having it be a decent experience.
