hot wings...do quality wings exist out here?

Being a transplant for the southeast, I always try to find good wings but seem to fail over and over. I live in the burbank area, and am in dire need of some, so any help in finding the golden wing would be great.

  1. I was pleasantly surprised at the buffalo-style hot wings at the sports bar at the LAX Marriott. They got the bleu cheese dressing right (ranch with wings in an abomination), and the sauce might even have been based on Durkee's Red Hot.

    1. I like hot wing cafe on Melrose east of La Brea

      1. A question, not a comment:

        There's a wing place on Pico (between Robertson/Beverwill--I know, that's specific) on the north side of the street. There's a grand opening sign, I forget but it very obviously has to do with BBQ hot wings.

        Has anyone been? I'll try harder to remember the name next time I drive by (or heck, go in)

          There's a place on Venice with a Grand Opening sign too, in the general vicinity of Robertson on the north side of the strret. I think it's called Hoagies and Wings but I might be mistaken.

            Hoagies and Wings is very good, and has been open for awhile. But they are a bit further east, on Venice near Hauser. Very accomodating service, justifiably proud of their wings, and their Philly cheesesteak is good, though I still prefer Philly West's. They deliver, but note in the current cold, windy weather that seating is outside on a covered patio.

              Hoagies & Wings also just opened a new location on La Cienega, south of Olympic (or was that Pico?). In any case, it's one of our standby delivery places. The wings are great (try the lemon pepper!) and the the people who work there are fantastic.

                You can check out Hoagies and Wings' menu on its web site:

          2. Hamburger Hamlet chicken wings are pretty large and juicy if that's what you mean by quality wings.

            You can have them with a Buffalo style sauce or their famous apricot sauce.

              The last time I ordered them, I was soooo turned off by the VERY feathery chicken wings I was served. -A huge appetite killer.

            2. I know I sound like a grinch but did you ever try to search for older posts? Of course it does always seem that people always have new places to suggest.

              Here goes. Do a search and you will find these two mentioned over and over again. Ribs USA in Burbank and the best are found at Ye Rustic Inn in Los Feliz.

                Ribs USA has great buffalo wings and is otherwise awful. The wings are the same as the ones that were sold at Rubin's Red Hots before it closed (Ribs USA and Rubin's once had the same owners). I always get the Ribs USA wings with an extra side of the extra spicy sauce and also get the spicy french fries (their basic fries bathed in the hot wings sauce). I like Hoagies and Wings spicy wings, but prefer Ribs USA's. Hoagies and Wings pack more heat, but the Ribs USA wings have better flavor. And Ribs USA is a lot closer.
