Best Wings in Brooklyn

  • r

I moved to Brooklyn Heights from the UES. I use to live pretty close to Blondies, which I think have the best wings in the city, followed by Atomic wings. Can anyone recommend a place for wings near Brooklyn Heights. Ive heard the Park Slope Ale House has good ones. Im up to try anywhere.

  1. Best wings in Brooklyn: Bonnie's Grill on 5th Avenue in Park Slope the owner is originally from Buffalo and the wings are amazing, good beers and burgers also.

      THANK YOU DEE DEE, Finally someone said the right, ney, THE ONLY WINGS, in BK, are at Bonnies. If you want crap, go to the Ale House of your choosing. Bonnies is the real McCoy.

    2. A little different from the usual -- the wings at Taku on Smith St. They're super spicy and come with a delicious cucumber dip.

      1. I'd also recommend the wings at Henry St. Ale House. They're pretty good, and cheap Mon-Tues. Plus, their nachos are awesome - I'm told the chips are made on site.

        1. Yes, Bonnie's Wings ROCK. Ale House's wings suck. I used to be a huge fan of Ale house, but like many others have said, their food has gone way downhill. Oh how I long for the days of their .20 wings...

          1. The best wings in the borough of Kings will soon be opening at Flatbush and Atlantic! That's right folks, the good people at Buffalo Wild Wings and Grill will be bringing their regional American cuisine to our fine borough!

            All kidding aside, yes - I think Bonnie's are probably the best in Brooklyn; the best in the city belong to Dinosaur BBQ in my book. Actually, they're the best I've had since Quaker Steak & Lube in Sharon became a massive chain. (Those used to be the best wings out there a decade or so ago before they started franchising out.)

                I loved the B-Dub when I lived in Pittsburgh.

                Anyone been yet, now that it's finally open? I'm hoping nothing's been lost in translation.

                  I believe it is open. I've seen employees smoking outside of the mall near their entrance and they have TVs on in there.

                  And if you lived in Pittsburgh how could you resist the draw of the original Quaker Steak and Lube? (The chains are a pale comparison to the original.) Or the place out in Moon Township. Man, when I was in high school I could really polish them off on AYCE nights! (I'm not judging you, I was just feeling nostalgic and decided to rant for a bit.)

                  1. re: lambretta76

                    Yeah, it's definitely open. I peeked in on my last Target run a couple of weeks ago and it seemed to be doing a pretty brisk business.

                    Should have stuck with my original plan to go there tonight and not let the merely sort-of-bad weather deter me. I ended up ordering wings from Pig-N-Out and boy, was I disappointed. Something was totally off about the flavor, and the sides I ordered (grilled corn and baked beans) were flavorless and flavor-off, respectively.

                    As for Quaker Steak, I only lived in Pgh for 8 months, and I was always more than a little skeptical of any place calling itself "Steak and Lube"...should I not have been?
