Help with Chicken Wing deals

i
iloveporkbelly Nov 18, 2009 01:13 PM

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.

    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.

      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.

        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

                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!)

                  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)...my 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

                  50cent wings is not exactly a bargain.

                    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).

                      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.

                      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.

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

                  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.

                      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!

                        .10c wings at Magoun's Saloon in Somerville during Monday Night Football games.

                          Old Magoun Saloon in Somerville has ten cent wings for Monday Night Football. They are the large ones too not the tiny ones you usually get for a dime!

                            Never heard of this place (found it while searching for buffalo wings in Boston), but Whiskey's Steakhouse on Boylston seems to have 15 cent wings Thur-Sun until 11pm and until 4pm on Fri. and Sat.

                                Looks like you have to buy a pitcher of beer for that deal?
                                From their website:
                                "Tuesdays: 25¢ Wings with Pitcher of Beer

                                (maximum—30 wings) "

                                Don't think I could drink a pitcher of any of the beers they have on tap.

                                  You must be VERY particular about your beer. They may not be a fru fru Belgian beer pub but they certainly always have at least Sam Adams and another microbrew or two. Me, I like their Pizza better than their wings.

                                this doesn't really count as a "deal" but Silvertone has the BEST buffalo wings I've ever had. Big and juicy and perfectly crispy and sauced. They also do a "Rochester" sauce which is sweeter and stickier and also delicious. As for deals Side Bar (right across the street from Silvertone on Bromfield St in Downtown Crossing) does 10 cent wings but they are measely and not very good.

                                  25 cent wings at the Draft on tuesdays as well, They have 5 or 6 different flavors, but I'd stay away from the parm garlic.. they sound good but are a creamy mess.

                                  Robyn's Bar/Grill in Roslindale Village has "Mad Mike's" wings @ $.60 each. Not a wicked deal but the wings are usually worth it. marinated and smoked, then finished in the oven. all their own and quite tasty!
