Best Chicken Wings

I'm had some amazing chicken wings throughout the city and thought Dinosaur’s BBQ had some of the best. Any other contenders?

  1. Depending on what style you're looking for. I think Dinosaur is great for bbq's wings, but I think for Buffalo Wings, Blondie's makes a great wing.

    1. barrow st. ale house has great wings.

      1. Haven't made it up to Dinosaur, but I hear the place is great overall. I think Blondie's has the best wings in the city. They have two locations: 93rd & 2nd and 79th btw Broadway and Amsterdam. The wafer fries there are also excellent. Backpage on 3rd btw 84th & 85th makes great wings too. If you ever make it out to Jersey (and I don't blame you if you don't), try Cluck U. That place is amazing, even by New York standards.

          Count me in as another BACK PAGE wing lover(it's actually between 83rd and 84th)...consistently up there for city Buffalo wings, and trying to reach Bonnie's Grill level (Park Slope/Brooklyn).

        2. Scruffy Duffy's on 8th ave in 40's are the best BUFFALO Wings in the city.

          Blondies w79th are thin and not great.

          Firehouse on Columbus Ave in the 80's are quality.

          Dinosaur are real good - but not traditional buffalo style.

          Virgil's are high quality grilled wings.



          1. Best wings in the city are at Rathbones - I also find that Blondies wings have too much vinegar in their sauce.

            Dino BBQ has a great chicken wing but certaintly not a buffalo wing and make sure your trip isn't too far home after eating them.

            I find the sauce at Backpage to be extremley lackluster.
