  1. I haven't been to hotwings, but hotwing cafe on melrose near la brea and Ye Rustic inn on Hillhurst are both very good.

      The Pasadena Hotwings is owned by the Melrose Hotwings, also a Glendale location.

    2. the best wings in town are at "ye rustic inn" on hillhurst in the los feliz/silverlake area. they are as good (or better) than the anchor bar in buffalo. (imnsho, of course)

        Agreed about Ye Rustic Inn. Hotwings does an okay job if you are not in the YRI 'hood. I always get mine well done and extra saucy (hot) at HW (with a side of their curly fries, cooked well done) and I am a happy girl.

      2. Is this the same as hotwings on Melrose? There has to be something better and you can call me crazy right now, BUT ... Fox and Hounds on Ventura Blvd. (yes, the pub) makes KILLER Wings!!!

        1. I'm sorry but if you think "Hotwings" is the best, you haven't had really good wings yet.

          As others have mentioned, make a drive out to Los Feliz and try the wings at Ye Rustic Inn. Make sure to order them extra crispy.

          Please report back.

          1. Wing Stop (multiple locations) - The atomic will get you sweating...and maybe crying.
            Buffalo Wild Wings - closest one is in Rancho Cucamonga
            Wingnuts - Upland
            Hooters - I love the naked 911 and Daytona
