      I've wanted to try this place but I'm not sure they are even still in business -- a week or two ago at about 5pm Saturday afternoon they were not open and had Hallowe'en decorations in the window.

    2. Never tried them but i know cage aux sports has hot wings.

        Actually i did try the wings at Cage Aux Sports recently and they were passable. They are cheaper on Thursdays (33c a wing i think which is really expensive compared to Calgary). I thought they were a little small but given that Montreal doesn't have many places serving wings i was okay with them.

      2. I know it's total junk but for some reason I just like it : Buffalo Bill. They,re actually pretty good. Nothing to compare to Duff's in Buffalo where the wings are huge, crispy and dripping with fiery sauce but still all right.

          I hear you, Campofiorin. They aren't the best I've ever had, but they are pretty good wings, and a good price too. I'll eat these from time to time. Don't know if they are the best, though, I just haven't tried wings at enough places to really comment.

            When Buffalo Bills first opened on Cote de Nieges the wings were meaty, and hte sauce explosive( if you like ti that way). The price was fair too, and included the required veggies and BlueCheese dip.

            As they went tot he franchise model, the wings got skimpier, and the veggies became an option. The sauce is not as spicy as it used to be...

            Now I find Buffalo Bills wings to be little more than skin and bones. I really miss the original Buffalo Bills, they really had the market, as they were the only place that was primarily wings....

            Olde Orchard claims to serve Capon wings.. However, I suspect that they have substituted the capon wings with chicken wings, as they are no where near as big as what I see on the capons I buy. The wings are good though.

            I know Buffalo is closer but If you are ever in the Virgin Islands, Pusser's at the Soper's hole Marina on the island of Tortola has the meatiest and tastiest wings I have ever come across.

              I had The Olde Orchard wings on Monday and they were indeed HUGE. The sauce wasn't quite as tangy as I like it, but a little vinegar fixed that easily. I had the "spicy", and it was perfectly so. The order of 9 is a very substantial meal... unfotunately they don't come with their delicious fries.

            Tried Buffalo Bill oh say...in 1999 (was probably 10-11 years old, since I am 22 now...I might be wrong) with my old man. We ordered a dozen "MEDIUM" wings (medium was the lowest heat and 911 was the hottest) and when we ate them, SMOKE WAS COMING OUT OF OUR NOSES & MOUTHS NO JOKE!!! The wings became too hot for us to even eat them so we threw them out! My dad was never a heat fan (and still isin't to this day, while I on the contrary have develloped a longing taste for that fiery heat! Maybe I ought to try them out again?

            1. re: Har_Gow_Freak

              The consensus in this thread is that McKibbins offers what are probably the spiciest wings in town, and the complexity of the naga jolokia peppers used (not to mention their heat) outstrips the hottest of Bill's wings by light years. Everything that tries to be spicy from Buffalo Bill's just tastes like it was tossed in Frank's Red Hot...

              1. re: davekry

                Indeed, but McKibbin's isn't pleasant, no matter how much of a heat fan you are. You have to sign a waiver before ordering them, no joke.

                1. re: Shattered

                  That's probably only for the dozen wings (as part of the challenge)

                  I tried them last autumn with some friends, went for the plate of 6, and no such things as a waiver to sign.

          3. Here's a site that was recommended to me by someone on the western canada board. It currently does not include Montreal but it might someday. Also it would be useful if you plan to travel to any of the other cities.

            I'm heading to Calgary next month so i can't wait to hit up some of my old favorites!

              We're about to launch the Montreal version of www.hotwings.ca - it requires that we have it translated so it took a little longer. I predict you'll see listings closer to June/July 2010

            2. Chalet BBQ on Sherbrooke has tasty wings, with a sweet/spicy sauce that I find addictive.
