Wings in RI?

pryan Nov 4, 2007 06:40 AM


It's Sunday.
It's Sunny.
It's Autumn.
It's Pats v. Colts.

I have a massive chicken wing jones, and my fryer is now busted, so I turn to you. Where in this state can I find a heaping bunch of excellent flavorful, crispy wings? I live just north of Providence, and this craving is massively powerful, so I'm willing to make a drive if need be.

        L'attitude in Cranston has the best wings! I usually only like the crispy, dry kind, but they have a wet kind (NOT soggy though) that is fantastic.

        Also...great fries & their grilled pear/mixed greens/gorganzola salad is fantastic. They have this appetizer that has grilled bread & shrimp...I don't remember what it's called but it's awesome!

        Great bar, great food all around....kind of upscale pub-grub...On Broad Street in the Edgewood/Pawtuxet Village neighborhood of Cranston. Easy access...yummy food!

        Rt 10 south to Park Ave.....Park East to the end (broad Street)....right on broad, L'attitude is up a little ways on your left.

          PHAT Wings

          Provicence RI

          I have little comparative experience, but I like the wings here. We get 'em with sauce on the side. They sell them "naked" and battered. I take the battered, have never had the other.

            Wings of Fire at Mister Taco (of all places) are very unique, I love the sauce.

            Hot Wings at Richards Pub in East Greenwich are also very unique, they are fried and tossed with a blend of fried pepper rings and pepper flakes and a vingegar based sauce, spicy and delicious...

              A slight takeoff on this topic, but what about buffalo or hot chicken tenders? My favorite is Sax's in East Providence, but Wings to Go is fairly decent as well.

              Any other favorites?

                I recently had them at the Red Bridge Tavern, and while I'm not sure if they are my favorite, they were very tasty. Also, East ave. makes a great buffalo tender- there is something in the sauce (same they use for the wings) that i really love.
