Chicken Wings

Has anyone had any good chicken wings in LA? Westwood or Santa Monica preferred, but I'll drive anywhere...!

  1. My co-worker swears by this place. Large wings at a low price.

    Supreme Wings
    2511 W Jefferson Blvd
    Los Angeles, CA 90018
    (323) 731-1538

    I've never been there before, but he has fairly good taste. His recommendation is to order the "hot, but not too hot" wings, otherwise you will not be able to eat more than a few.

    Btw, it's not for lack of trying that I haven't been to this place, it's just that it's near Phillip's bbq and for some reason my car won't let me drive anywhere else in the area.

    1. I really like the wings at Big Wangs -- a fun (but sometimes VERY crowded) sports bar in Hollywood.

      1562 N. Cahuenga Blvd (and Selma Ave)
      Hollywood, CA 90028

        Big Wangs wings are delicious. If you wanna get some take out wings in large quantities I highly recommend Hoagies and Wings.

      2. I was pleasantly surprised by the ones I had at Tom Bergin's on Fairfax recently. I tried the ones at Rustic Inn on Hillhurst, which are often recommended here, and found Bergin's much less greasy and nicely spicy.

          Hi Patty! I just went to Ye Rustic Inn yesterday and recalled your posting that their wings were greasy. I paid close attention to my order and I detected no grease. I wonder if it is because I ordered them well done and got the hot version (extra saucy)? I have had them before and do not recall noticing grease. Also, I like it that their sauce never "separates" as some have the tendency to do. I do think they make a wonderful version of wings. The staff is always really friendly and attentive as well.

        2. Fu Rai Bo, on Sawtelle near Olympic. The best chicken wings anywhere. Not buffalo style, but the post didn't specify buffalo wings.

            I whole heartedly second Fu Rai Bo. Those suckers are addictive. Best ordered extra spicy --which I have to say, is seriously not spicy, not really even a tingle on the lips --it's slightly sweet, slightly salty, slightly spicy --totally delish.

            1. re: jackt

              Yes, yes -- I was going to post Fu Rai Bo too. And I agree that extra spicy is the way to go.

            2. They're not buffalo-style, but Little Hong Kong Cafe on Sawtelle serves a large plate of chicken wings that are fried golden and crispy, and then tossed in minced fresh green chilis and fresh garlic. For my money, they are some of the best wings going in L.A.

              And for NO money, I have to give mention to the Pacific Dining Car's happy hour wings - sometimes teriyaki, sometimes lime. Free, meaty, and delicious.
