Wings in Atlanta

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?

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

    1. 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.

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

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