Best chicken wings in south florida

My vote is for Bru's room. I love the sweet and tangy sauce.

    Bru's (hot / grilled). Make sure they make them fresh. Sometimes I believe they prepare a bunch in advance and then reheat. You can tell because the outside will seem dried out and they just aren't that great. When you get fresh ones they almsot explode with delicious moist flavor.

        House of Wings in Coconut Grove (3809 Grand Ave, 305-569-7737). In the 'hood, so to speak, and part-owned by one of the Heat players, it has baked or fried wings with about 50 diff sauces. They are great (the lemon-pepper ones are yummy, as is the 'ghetto' flavor!). My husband (who orders wings pretty much every place we go) and I make a special trip for them.

        If you go on a Fri-Sun evening, be sure to stop across the street at Calvin's BBQ-- a guy cooking outside in his backyard that is a neighborhood institution. They have GREAT BBQ and the sauce is like my grandaddy used to make!

          Is that Tim Hardaway's place? Hardaway's House of Wings? I guess they dropped his name after the comments he made. Good move.

            Not sure... I lived in the Grove for 3 years before I moved (6 months ago), and I only knew it as House of Wings (which was the only thing they had on their takeout menus and cards too). So if they removed his name, it was a while before he got stupid...

                Cross over Alligator Alley and check out the wings at The Lazy Flamingo on Sanibel Island. They are worth the drive!

          Wings n things on griffin and pine island. The medium with fresh garlic and the honey bbq are the best!

                I vote for Piranha Pat's - their unbreaded hot wings are my all-time favorite!

                  Ricky's took some getting used to, but they sure are good when ordered Hot & Crispy! A FLA Institution. Hollywood Blvd and +/- 48th St.

                  Note: you got to get beyond the sacreligious breading and tips which they leave on, in fact they serve you the entire wing...once you do, you will note they are unique in their own right. 50+ years. Do not order them naked-which they started doing a couple years back....ain't no good!

                  Good Lobster deals as well.

                    Uncle Al's in Broward, Griffin Road near Pine Island. It's a dive kinda bar, real dark inside, but the non breaded wings are the best!

                      I usually love my wings to be nice and spicy...not in the case of my pick for the best. Although the service is awful, Anthony's Coal Fire (there is now one on Biscayne and 180) has unbelievable wings. They cook them in the coal fire oven and top them with caramelized onions. You've gotta try them!

                        I like Bru's wings (which are identical to those found at Wings & Things - in large part because Bru's orignally had some connection to Eddie Hauck, the owner of Wings & Things, or so I seem to remember).

                        My favorite version is with BBQ sauce & grilled.

                        For those who live elsewhere, Bru's has several locations in north Broward and Palm Beach. Wings & Things has a couple locations in Broward.

                          Wings N' Curls in Hollywood. Shuckers grilled wings are also good.

                            Finally tried the buffalo wings at Wing N Curls. Outstanding.

                            wing zone with their cajuns or spicy bbq. also, shuckers in North Bay Village with their special grilled wings.
