This popular grill and beer garden is best known for its buzzing vibes and live music each weekend, but we reckon they deserve an extra shout out for their chicken wings. They come with Hudson Bar’s ‘super secret hot sauce’ and a blue cheese dip. You’ll want plenty of napkins as they are a messy-but-delicious eat.
Bootleggers is a Prohibition-inspired spot that serves up a tasty all-day and night menu, local and American craft beers and – of course – plenty of Moonshine. The perfect thing to sip on for a hearty wing fest. The tasty, crispy wings here come with a choice of hot sauce, bbq sauce, honey chipotle, garlic hot sauce or BBQ Sriracha.
As the name suggests, Tribal Burger is all about proper, juicy burgers, but these meat specialists are also smashing it in the chicken wing department. What started as a popular food truck has now grown into two permanent locations in the city, where you can dig into their plump, spicy buffalo wings. Wash them down with a boozy milkshake for a real treat.
Yardbird is a rotisserie chicken restaurant upstairs above The Dirty Onion, that serves up chicken, chicken and more chicken. They only use local free-to-roam chicken and you can taste the quality in every bite. Their BBQ glazed wings come with a sour cream and spring onion sauce for dipping.
Stix & Stones is a gourmet steak and seafood restaurant that focuses on stone-cooked, juicy steaks, but we urge you to order a portion of their chicken wings to kick things off. Their droolworthy wings come on a bed of rocket, with pickled cucumber, teriyaki sauce and a creme fraiche salsa.
This mega-popular burger joint allows customers to build their own burger from over 30 toppings and 40 sauces, but give the tender buffalo chicken wings a try. If you are seriously hungry and want to treat yourself, the wings to start followed by a burger is the ultimate cheat meal.
Blue Chicago Grill’s menu is packed full of American comfort food, but the wings are a real highlight. Choose from hot and spicy, or BBQ.
They coat their wings in a super crispy mixture that gives them a perfect crunch and when paired up with one of the craft beers on offer this is as close to a perfect meal as you will get.
