Good Hot Buffalo Wings in Westchester or Putnam?

I'm looking for a good, hot, spicy buffalo wing fix in Westchester. I don't enjoy the flavors of Planet Wings, so that's out, and Buffalo Wild Wings hasn't impressed me. A past post for good wings in lower Westchester suggested Candlelight Inn in Scarsdale, which I will try soon. But I'm open to suggestions throughout all of Westchester County, and in Putnam County as well. Whether it's a sitdown resturant or a chain, I don't care, as long as it's good and the flavors are rich with a good amount of heat! Thanks for any suggestions you might be able to provide.

  1. I've seen numerous positive posts re: Candlelight's wings on several different threads over time. There must be something to it but haven't made it there yet so if you go I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    Haven't had any wings elsewhere up here that are good enough to talk about with the exception of the totally non-buffalo style smoked large chicken wings at Q in Port Chester. They are incredibly delicious and tender but not of the hot buffalo variety you're seeking.

      I went to Candlelight Inn tonight...didn't expect that I would go so soon, but it worked out! Got seated without a wait, which was a nice surprise...another thread had warned that there was always a wait, no matter which night you went. I ordered the Extra Hot wings. They were delicious! Crispy with just the right amount of sauce, and a flavor that I love. The price is great too. Next time I might try the Chernobyl flavor...probably wouldn't be able to eat them all like I did with the Extra Hot, but I love a spicy food challenge. :) The onion rings were also good. I liked the casual atmosphere, and if it was closer to my house I'd probably be there often, eating wings and drinking...open till 3 AM!

      So, Candlelight certainly is a great find, thanks. Although I'd love to hear still more suggestions for good wings, you can never have too many good wing places! I'll have to look into Kelly's and The Firehouse next.

    2. sorry to repeat, but... candlelight- yes, yes, yes!!! best wings.

      1. Kelly's and The Firehouse, both in Peekskill...

        1. I know this is kind of heresy, but I've had really good wings the last couple of times at Applebee's. Very large, and a good spicy sauce. Sadly, you might just as easily get small wings without much sauce.

          There's a place by the name of So Dam Hot in Valhalla that was supposed to have really good wings, but I was not impressed when I tried them a few years ago.

          Is there anyplace that does good peanut wings? Those seem to be popular up in Albany, and they're really tasty.

          1. Best wings= Lazy Boy Saloon on Mamaroneck ave in WP. They are always on point. They also have close to 500 varieties of beer to choose from!

              Just looked at the beer list! (And the menu.) Wow. I am so there, as soon as possible.

              MisterBill2, they list Thai-spiced peanut wings as one of the flavors available...so maybe you should try Lazy Boy Saloon as well! :)

                I'll meet you there :-).

                I actually ate at Lazy Boy a few years ago with a bunch of co-workers. I think we just got the regular buffalo wings. As I recall, they were rather small-ish.
