Wings in Atlanta

twinkie Jul 9, 2008 12:43 PM

I'm looking for a place with cheap, good wings, sports and beer. Just something simple, easy, and cheap for a bunch of grad students to hang out. Do you guys know any places in Atlanta?

    I always liked Wild Wing Cafe, there are multiple locations.Also, Wing Factory in Buckhead. 3rd, I would go with Wing Nut.

        My fav wings are at the Taco Stand on Roswell Road. Also Taco Mac's are good and so are the Twisted Taco wings. I wouldn't call any of them particularly cheap though.

              You must mean at Virginia and Highland- there isn't one in L5P.

              I've never had a particularly good wing in Atl.

                Depending on what part of town you're looking in, the Taco Mac chain tends to have good wings. And a better beer selection than Moe's & Joe's. Although that comes with many more screens and much less of the been-there-for-60-years atmosphere.

                In the ex-urbs, there's also the Summits Wayside Tavern in Kennesaw, Cumming, and Snellville. Basically Taco Macs that split off from the chain a few years ago.

                That said, beer prices at either are not the greatest, and they're famous for nickel and diming you for extras (want spinach and jalapenos on your $8 quesadilla, that'll be an extra $2; I exaggerate, but you get the idea). And for being out of the first 3 beers you ask for. But the wings are definitely good- like twice the size of the cold, scrawny ones I had at Turner Field last week.

                Charlie Mopp's on Roswell (former Summits location) is only worth it if everyone smokes or you sit outside. I almost wonder if they have a special system just to concentrate the smoke in the air.

                In Cobb, there's Wild Wing Cafe. Good folks in terms of doing beer tastings, etc; I just haven't been enough to form an opinion.

                  try Moe's and Joe's in Virginia Highland. You'll do well on all 3.
