HELP! Buffalo Wings in Philly

I need to know where the best buffalo wings in Philly can be found!! I have checked all of the threads and there were very few. How can that be with the popularity of wings and beer? I am looking to find really exceptional wings in a bar (even if it's obscure) or in a great restaurant, as long as they are crisp and delicious!

      Really? I haven't been there in 15 years, but I remember the food being mediocre.

        The Bride & I went there in late summer so that I could have the wings (she had some kind of salad).

        The wings were very good, and were whole wings (not drum-ettes and other piece parts). The sauce had a great combination of tang, vinegar, and pepper spice. I like my wings hotter so I was a little disappointed that they only offer 1 sauce (which I would classify as a true medium or medium-plus on the hotness scale).

        I can't talk to the quality of the rest of their food.

          The food is mediocre at best, apart from the wings. They're the only thing there worth eating.

      2. Cross the bridge and go to the Jughandle Inn on Route 73.

          2nd Jughandle. Leaps and bounds better than anything else.

          I've been to the Anchor Bar in Buffalo and I think that the Jug's are better than theirs!

            I have also been to the Anchor Bar. I'm sticking with the Jughandle.

        2. My husband swears by Moriarty's and Union Jack's in Manayunk. I think Moriarty's has the best blue cheese, I get extra for dipping fries!

          1. in Philly, Moriarty's and Locust Rendezvous. Over the bridge, The Jughandle on 73 or Whistler's on Rt 130.

            1. I've been looking for good wings in Philly for a while now, the closest I've found is Ed's in UCity.
