Best Chicken Wings In HawaiiHow do these rankings work?

1. Hilo Town Tavern – Hilo

Hilo Town Tavern offers their wings in nine different varieties which include Honey Bbq, Teriyaki Garlic,  Kimchee and Lemon pepper. And, they do so along with some delicious dipping sauces. Simply put, this is not a place you’ll want to miss.

2. Dirty Lickins Chicken – Aiea

There’s a lot to love about the wings at Dirty Lickins Chicken. They’re juicy and oh-so-flavourful. We definitely suggest ordering their Wing Sampler. It’ll come with 16 wings and four different sauces, allowing you to truly indulge and sample a variety of flavours.

3. Vons Chicken – Honolulu

Vons Chicken does one thing, and they do it really well. The choices here are minimal, which is honestly great as there’s no need for anything else aside from their out-of-this-world wings. Roast Oven chicken wings are a great way to start off the evening before working your way onto sauces that include Shoyu and Crispy Fried BBQ.

4. Maui Brewing Co. – Kihei

Few things go better together than beer and wings. But, Maui Brewing Co. takes that a step further and offers island-brewed craft beers along with their world-class wings. The brews are unique and flavourful, a refreshing treat to help you wash down a plate of their hot wings. They’re tossed in Bikini Blonde Lager spicy wing sauce for added flavour.

5. Chicken Factory – Honolulu

Debating between fried chicken and spicy chicken? The answer is a combination of fried and spicy which you can order at the Chicken Factory in downtown Honolulu. This spot was Hawaii’s first Korean-style chicken restaurant which means their wings taste of nothing short of mouthwatering authenticity.

7. Chubby’s Diner – Kailua-Kona

Chubby’s Diner is the kind of place you’re going to have to visit more than once. On the first visit, however, we suggest sampling their chicken wings. You can get them smothered in your choice of buffalo, salt & vinegar, or Korean sauce. Or, simply order them sauce-less to truly savour the juicy, tender meat.
