Help with Chicken Wing deals

I remember a recent topic focused on deals around Boston but was unable to find it with the search option. I was hoping that someone might be able to help me find any good chicken wing deals around town. Love old man bars, dives, or wherever might have a great deal on wings where you can sit down and enjoy them with a few cold and tasty beers. Two Boston chefs looking to go out and crush some wings. Any and all help truly appreciated preferably for places in Boston proper or cambridge. Thanks in advance.

  1. Buff's Pub in Newton Corner makes awesome wings. No deals just the best in beantown.

    Donohue's in Watertown does 10 cent wings on Mon or Tues but Buffs are much better.

    1. re: StriperGuy

      Donohue's has free wings Friday afternoon, 3-6 pm.

      Buffs wings are bigger, and they really pay attention to them - I find them moister, and worth it.

      Buff's Pub
      317 Washington St, Newtonville, MA 02458

      Donohue's Bar & Grill
      87 Bigelow Ave, Watertown, MA 02472

      1. re: StriperGuy

        Roggies Bar and Grill has $0.30 wings mon-fri from 4-7pm.

        Brighton Beer Garden has all you can eat wings for $4 Mondays and Tuesdays from 9-11.

        Brighton Beer Garden
        386 Market St, Brighton, MA 02135

        Roggie's Brew & Grille
        356 Chestnut Hill Ave, Brighton, MA 02135

      2. this might fall outside your parameters but the wings at Privus (across from Blanchards in Allston) are different enough to be worth trying (and they come with great daikon pickles)...if you're still hungry after that you can walk a block to Soulfire for bbq wings

              will def have 2 check this out.....

              1. re: seedove17

                at the risk of derision, does a 'wing' constitute a part of a wing, or the whole thing minus the tip? (and yes, one can be a foodie and not have ordered wings before!)

                1. re: opinionatedchef

                  the wings i've had are typically the "middle" section (the piece with two thin parallel bones) but sometimes have the drummette as well, as a separate piece (no tip) favorites are probably either Japanese tatsuta-age style (e.g. Itto-sushi in Chicago) or Chinese salt-and-pepper style (e.g. Fulin in Seattle), still looking for good local examples of each style

                2. re: seedove17

                  50cent wings is not exactly a bargain.

                  1. re: StriperGuy

                    Chicken Bone in Framingham gets like .$95 per wing at regular price, but they are large. Buff's are around $.60 - $.70 per wing? (and they are pretty small, but they seem to give you more wings than they list on the menu).

                    1. re: LStaff

                      I have to say, I think Buff's has some of the bigger wings around. Not sure how you rate them as small unless CB has HUGE ones.

                    2. re: StriperGuy

                      Bon chon is expensive ...50 cent wings for them is def a deal. They're fried twice so they take about 30 minutes to cook, come in two flavors, hot and soy garlic. They're not goey or heavily batter like other wings, just crispy skin with great sauces.

                3. re: barleywino

                  barley, you and sc steve have been touting these bon chon chicken wings at privus, and i want to go there, but would you plse explain- is bon chon a style of prep? plse describe flavors, coating , sauce choices. and th much.

                    i'm not an expert (and am a latecomer to this parade) but here is a link

                    1. re: barleywino

                      Those wings were the highlight of my meal at Privus, and I'm looking forward to having them again.

                4. It may not be a chow destination, but Whiskeys on Boylston Street has $.15 wings during weekday lunch hours and 1/2 price on early evenings.

                  1. Chicken Bone Framingham All u can eat $7. Momday 8-10, Wednesday 7-9

                    1. Soulfire in Allston offers all-you-can-eat wings for $6.99 on Monday nights. I've never done it, but I've enjoyed their fried chicken!
