Super Bowl Chicken Wings -- SF

s

In honor of the Super Bowl this weekend, I am searching for Chowhound's opinions on good fired chicken wings in San Francisco. They can be buffalo style or asian, but I would prefer if they were cut up as opposed to the whole wing. One caveat is that I will be hosting a party and will be picking up the wings before the festivities start, so they need to have a bit of staying power to them. Anyone have any ideas?

    San Tung on Irving for Asian ("dry fried") and Jake's Steaks on Buchanan for Buffalo Style (though I haven't been since they changed owners).

      If they do takeout, Kezar has the buffalo wings in the city. While I always enjoy them there, I am sure that they would be good for take out as well. Of course the best way to have chicken wings is to do them yourself, but I realize that is quite a hassle.

        Not hassle. High oven until skins brown, the brush both sides with sriracha hot sauce and return to oven until slightly blackened then turn to finish. Dip in ranch dressing.

        At Cheung Hing deli/cafe (Noriega/30th Av) today, they had a tray of s&p fried chicken wings -- looked good! They do party trays, so maybe give them a call?

          Capital's salt and pepper wings. Less glorious if not piping hot from the fryer... but still good.

            I agree that Capital has a great salt and pepper wing when eaten hot there. But for a Super bowl party then maybe buying by the pound at a takeout Chinese deli purchased in the OP area maybe just as good.

              Maybe a dumb question, but what's the OP area? Also, Capital sounds really good. Any idea how many wings come with an order?

                  in one order (around $6) it's like 10 or 12 wings easily.

              For Buffalo style, I like Burgermeister's.

                Great, Thanks! Do you know if they do large take out orders? I will be having roughly 15 people over.

                  I'm not sure, but I bet they would. They are online at www.burgermeistersf.com and have 4 locations.
