  1. I totally reccomend Duff's, nice and meaty, any level of heat you desire along with many other flavor options.

      Does Duff's have a website? I can't seem to find one. I just want to see a menu online. :)

        1. re: cat

          the honey garlic and spicy barbecue (not very spicy) are both very tasty ..
          the honey garlic has strong garlic flavours but leaves very little garlic breath ..
          the spicy barbecue sauce has a nice smokey, almost bacony flavour ..
          the armageddon wings, hottest wings on the menu, are deceptively spicy -- very little vinegrette (i.e not a typical sour/tart "wings sauce"), does not smell spicy either .. it's almost a chemical burn when it hits you ..

            thanks for the info...i will stay away from the armegeddon then! I like kinda spicey so i think i might go with the medium.

            1. re: cat

              I was disappointed when I went. All though the size of the wings (aka the bones) were big, there was not much meat on them. Also they were overcooked and dry... pretty astonishing for chicken wings!

                As far as "dry" and not "juicy", That is the way I like my wings... That is the way they used to be at the Sheaf many years ago. Yum!

                I am going to try these legendary wings myself after work tonight and post here to share my review!

                  Agreed, not meaty. The only thing I found unique about Duff's was the potential level of heat. Otherwise very ordinary bar wings. I expected more since that is their specialty and they don't really do anything else.

        1. Went to Duff's finally a few weeks ago 'cause I love wings! However, I was disappointed - their wings are slightly overcooked. I wouldn't go back. Sadly, Duff's is not memorable.

            musta been an off night. i've eaten there several times and the wings have always been excellent. musta been an off-night, or an off-order...

          2. I love Duff's. Simply the best in TO. I don't know what the deal is with the posts about over cooked wings. I've never seen them. Anyway, a true Buffalo style chicken wing, right down to the size.

              Definition of over-cooked: dry. Not juicy enough.

              1. re: Food Tourist

                Agree with Food Tourist.
                I do not like the wings at Duff, over-cooked and rough. St. Louis is much better IMO (at least for the ones I go to).
                I know ppl say it is good, but for me, it is not.

            2. Read this thread for more opinions. Scroll further down for the most recent posts, as the thread started in 2004:


              I don't like Duffs at all, I much prefer Anchor Bar, read my comments in that thread,

                I was just talking to someone today, and reminiscing about how we would order from DoubleDouble just for the wings and wedges. I remember loooving them years ago, but not sure how they are now.

                1. re: TexSquared

                  much to vinegary for my taste.

                  all star wings and ribs (90 some odd flavours is my choice)
