Best chicken wings?

We wanted to do take out chicken wings for the Superbowl tomorrow. Who has the best wings in the DC, nearby MD/VA area for pick up? Thanks for your advice!

  1. Sign of the Whale makes great wings. The Big Hunt is well regarded on this site but I have not had their wings. Hard Times makes great wings but not true Buffalo style - but you can ask for them grilled.

    1. Urban Bar-B-Que in Rockville!!!!!

      1. For what you're looking for, Bungalow Billiards with some sides of the 3 Mile Island sauce.

          I think the wings at Big Hunt are disgusting and inedible. Bottom Line has pretty solid wings

        2. Clyde's has pretty good buffalo wings the traditional style with meaty wings fried and NOT breaded which is key. Then tossed in a nice tangy slightly spicy hot sauce. Served with a
          good bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks.
          Breaded wings should not be called buffalo wings.
          Jimmys in Herndon has pretty good wings.

            We ultimately went with Ledo and I was amazed but they were really pretty good wings. And, best is they gave us the wings and sauce separately so we put the wings in the over for a few minutes and then tossed them in the sauce, good spicy sauce and high quality wings that tasted hot and fresh.
