      if you live in woodside i would suggest expanding your horizons. sriphaphai thai rest off rosevelt ave 65th st is great also a hop away from the best indian in jackson hieghts and sunnyside offers so many things it baffles the mind..korean, tibetan, spanish, even a taco truck or two...if none of this gets you go for the burgers at donovans.you wont be disappointed

        Foxy's Diner on the north side of Queens Blvd. at 43-11 Q.B. has decent Buffalo-style wings. I lived 10 years in Buffalo, and have noticed that it's really hard for "foreigners" to get it right. Foxy's wings are messier than they should be, but the flavor is right.

          I think Cuckoo's Nest on Woodside Ave. has them on the menu, and maybe Saints and Sinners on Roosevelt does too. But you're really hurt in your pursuit of wing perfection (or even wing acceptability) around here by the fact that most of the bars in this neighborhood are Irish, and not like your Irish-American grandfather's Irish bars, but really Irish. Buffalo wings are not really a native food style for Irish pubs. Perhaps some of the more neo-Irish drinking establishments down in Sunnyside do a better job.

          That being said, there are some wing alternatives. Sripraphai does a mean chicken wing appetizer (actually on the menu as "Thai buffalo wing.") And UFC, the Korean fried chicken place on Roosevelt on the other side of the BQE, will gladly do you a box of nothing but wings coated in their spicy sauce. Then all you'll need is some blue cheese...

            The wings are decent at Saints and Sinners, but I prefer the wings at Pepino Pizzaeria. They are on 61st btw Roosevelt and Woodside Aves. They are breaded wings, which is not something I normally care for, but they are really good.
