From buzzing sports bars to BBQ joints, here’s our pick of the best spots for chicken wings in the region….
Best Chicken Wings In TasmaniaHow do these rankings work?
As the name suggests, this New Town joint is all about fried chicken. They go the extra mile here though with local chicken and produce from local markets. The menu is simple: pick a cut of chicken (drumsticks, thigh or wings – duh!). Then choose your coating (including chipotle or hot), add on sides and then lash a sauce of your liking on top. The creamy gorgonzola one is divine.
The Winston bar is a funky craft beer bar that also has incredible bites to eat. Take your pick from classic Buffalo, Nashville hot, Southern or their famously spicy Atomic wings. They’re not for the faint hearted… But, with 12 taps rotating daily, (four of them brewed just down the road), you can wash the wings down nicely.
Well known for their incredible South Asian food and a menu that highlights local ingredients, Mr Good Guy is also home to some of the best chicken wings in Tasmania. You can sit back and order a banquet ($45-55 per person) of small plates to be brought out to the table, or just dive right in with an order of the crispy wings with a sticky honey soy glaze.
Come here for true Texan flavours and hearty barbecue fare. With a menu full of tempting smoked meats and tasty sides, you’re spoiled for choice here. The smoked Nichols chicken wings though are a must-eat. They’re full of flavour and come with a range of sauces, from sweet & sassy BBQ to inferno.
This superb Korean has been a hotspot for authentic Korean bibimbap and other dishes since opening in 2005. Still going strong, you’ll find incredible Asian flavours alongside Tasmanian produce. The wings are a real highlight here. Double fried for an extra crispy coating, the meat inside is juicy and tender.
This cosy craft pub has a range of local and international craft brews, as well as a beautiful beer garden that’s the perfect setting for a wing feast. Locals rave about the wings here, and we can see why. They come in two flavours: buffalo with blue cheese sauce or BBQ with ranch, and both are seriously good.
Stop by The Brick Factory for fun vibes, live music every weekend, a bar full of Tasmanian brews and delicious food, too. There’s lots to tempt you on the menu (the Kilpatrick oysters with bacon are great to share), but be sure to order some wings. They’re crispy and fried with an aioli and Sriracha sauce for dipping. Yum.
