Best Chicken Wings in DenverHow do these rankings work?

1. Grillin’ Wings & Things

What makes the chicken wings at Grillin’ Wings & Things so special is that they’re finished off in your choice of sauce on the grill, so the flavour really soaks in. Fancy something a little different? Order their famous “Pig Wings” (mini bone-in pork shanks) for a tender treat.

2. Fire On The Mountain

The delicious chicken wings here start with the very best ingredients: they only use hormone-free, antibiotic free, cage-free chicken for the freshest taste. Their winds are classic in style and come with a delicious and rich buffalo sauce and classic celery and cheesy dip.

3. Ace Eat Serve

This funky spot (complete with ping pong table!) takes inspiration from Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, Korean, and Japanese cuisine for exciting dishes. Their crispy marinated chicken wings have the perfect crunch on the outside and are wonderfully juicy and tender on the inside,

4. Crush Pizza + Tap

Crush Pizza + Tap specialises in pizza, wings and beer, and their chicken wings recently won awards in Denver – they’re that good. Dig into either a hefty 1lb portion of their smoked chicken wings or go plant-based with their seitan option. Sauces such as buffalo green chile or Nashville hot finish it off to perfection.

5. Genna Rae Wings

They have seriously good comfort food on the menu including the wings which are plump on the inside with seriously juicy meat, yet crispy and perfectly crunchy on the outside. There’s generous portions and some seriously good sauces to round the meal off.

6. Buffalo Bill’s Wings

If you’re in the mood for classic comfort soul food, Buffalo Bill’s Wings is the place to go. Everything they do is superb. They do tasty catfish dinners and seriously good side dishes, too. But to come here and not have the juicy chicken wings would be a serious travesty!
