Who has the best wings in Etobicoke South?

etobicokesouth Apr 28, 2009 07:06 PM

I have posted a poll asking the best places for wings. Please help me solve the wing mystery by taking my poll and if you think I have missed some crutial wing spots please sent me some suggestions.

On my poll - here are the options:

------------Orwells (Bloor and Islington)
------------ Wingporium (Norseman and Islington)
------------Sloppy Joe's (Lakeshore and Longbranch area)
-------------Firkin (Bloor and Islington area)

I know there is more out there but these are ones that I know of personally, what are your favourites?

Thanks for your help, Leigh

Happy wing eating !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Haven't tried them personally, but have heard good things about the Gallway Arms on the Queensway, between Islington and Royal York.

      Sloppy Joe's have great wings but I prefer wings at Scruffy Murphy's, across from Cloverdale Mall.

      Blue Goose Tavern - Excellent
      Wingporium - Avoid

        Sloppy Joe's ... hands down the best and on their wing night the value for the size of the wings is amazing.

          Hollywood on the Queensway if you like your wings breaded and fairly saucy. Great natchos too.

            Another vote for Hollywood! Excellent wings!

              Yeah, I agree.... The wings are huge at Sloppy Joe's, but the breading they use has a somewhat acrid chemical flavour, IMHO. I personally am not a huge fan of breaded wings, anyways, so my opinion was slanted from the get-go, mind you.

              My dad loves wings and we live in the S. Etobicoke area. He has gone to Wingporium twice and was disappointed both times. So stay away.

                I agree.. Orwells by far!!..and they toss in a few veggie sticks and blue cheese as well..$0.49 special SUN/MON/WED.. Hollywoods very good as well - close # 2.. Galway Arms too inconsistent...usually very greasy..

                  Sorry for tagging an older post but...Orwell's is probably the most consistent and the atmosphere is friendly and the beer selection is good. Two places that might fly under the radar are The Crooked Cue (you don't have to play pool) - there is a cool/open bar area with plenty of seating that overlooks Bloor. The service is great the wings are fine and beer selection is very good. The atmosphere is not very 'pubby' - but it's worth a try for good wings. My other recommondation comes with this caveat: I have had the best and the worse wing at ... The Old Sod Pub. This is not for everyone - it is a drinking establishment and smells like it. The beer selection is ok - very middle of the road and commercial. I have had wings here about 20 times (I've lived down the street for 10 years). The best time to go is when they are moderately busy and the fryers have been working for a couple of hours. This is not a place to be 'first-in' or 'last-out' of. There is live music too boot. It's an old school tavern like the Wheat Sheaf or Grossman's. You may have the best wing feed of the year here - or not.
