Best Wings In CT

bmgsmg72 May 6, 2009 08:58 AM

So where are you going to get your wings in CT? My vote would be Rookies Sports Bar in Cromwell they have the best Honey BBQ wings in the state. A close second would be Sliders but i just do not like them as much they are a little small for me.

    You like starting thses "best of" posts lol.....

    My personal fav place for buffalo wings is Archie Moores in Wallingford but for all other flavors, I love the Bidwell Tavern in Coventry.

        They have approx. 30 flavors and the wing portions come in 3 sizes--small (one flavor--i think its 10 wings), large (2 flavors) or tavern (3 flavors). The most interesting flavor IMO is green mountain, which is maple syrup.

          Wow a maple syrup wing i never would have thought of that i love how you can try different flavors thats a major plus in my book. I just wish it was closer to middletown lol

        Someone needs to introduce him to the search function.

        Oddly enough, the best wings I've had have been from.. Wings. http://www.wingsover.com/ is the site, I confess I only go for boneless though. I don't know if those even count as wings.

          I would not count them as real wings

          J. Timothy's in Plainville is my favorite. I like their buffalo shrimp too.

            My vote goes to Hot Rods in New London. They are freshly cut, non-frozen, non-breaded wings. The buffalo are excellent, they come in 10-15 other flavors. They are all good especially the spicy teriyaki, jerk, and dry garlic and pepper. It has a great atmosphere, family friendly sports bar would be the best way to describe it.

                There was a time in my youth when the whole focus of my existence were the wings and pints of Newcastle at The Bidwell Tavern.

                I'll second the mention of wings from Archie Moores'. Though I get 'em from the Milford location. Very good indeed.

                Everyone must try J. Timothy's double sauced, double fried Dirt Wings. They come in several flavors but I am partial to Buffalo or Teriyaki. Their method of making them "dirty" is something no one else has and it makes them the tops in my book.
                It's become my standard Birthday meal.

                  I haven't been there in quite some time, but I used to really like the wings at The Outback steak house (believe it or not). They are called Kookaburra Wings and are really good, but maybe not spicy enough.

                    Central Cafe in Plainville... wings are huge and they have 50 varieties. I like the parmesan garlic. Sliders are great too.
