  1. I haven't had them in a long, long time but Township Grille in Matthews used to have great wings. The owners are originally from NY but have been in the CLT area for as long as I've been here (15+ yrs).

    We always get our wings at Wing Stop in Carmel Commons shopping center. We're partial to the hots, milds, garlic parm and teriyaki.

    Here is an old thread:

      I'm glad to report Township Grille still serves up some great wings.Nice people too.

        When I lived in Charlotte, the garlic parmesan wings at Wing Stop were our "go to" wings. Haven't found any quite like them anywhere else.

          I know! I've never been a fan of chain concepts. But I have to give props where due and I think Wingstop does a fine job with most of their wing flavors. I'm not crazy for the Cajun or the bbq, but the rest are tasty... with adequate "crispiness". The fries are great too.

      2. In Helen Schwab's Tournament of Wings in 2008, the Final Four were Moosehead Grill, Steamer's, Township Grille and Whooli's. Moosehead took the tournament, but Steamer's was the winner in the reader poll.

        1. My two favorite places:

          Ed's Tavern - While the owners are from NJ and not NY, the wings are the best "traditional" wings I have found. When I am craving wings, I go there.

          Mac's Speed Shop - It's a BBQ joint, but their wings are pretty good. They smoke them first, then grill them. I always ask for them extra grilled to get a nice crust on them.

          Ed's Tavern
          2200 Park Rd, Charlotte, NC 28203

          Mac's Speed Shop
          2511 South Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28203

          1. Used to be the Wing Ranch where Ed's is now. They had such great wings but the service was so bad, I think it was their undoing. I like Ed's but have to say my favorite wings in Charlotte are at The Yellow Rose. It's a bit of a dive bar on 51 near Carmel. Really great wings!

            1. Moosehead does have the best wings.

              They are big, meaty wings and have some great flavor options. The best are the blackened wings and the bee stings (habenero/honey).
