Porto Jan 26, 2010 04:45 AM

I'm looking for a non fry wing place. Decent place to sit with a group of freinds 5 - 8 people.
Clean, with some good beer as well. Anywhere in the city or just slightly out of the city lines is fine.

Thank you,
Porto

    The Gem on Davenport west of Ossington, usually 2 craft beers on tap, great neighbourhood bar.

      Yes? Hi! Sometime people make the overlooking of the Wing Machine. They have may have the smaller wings but they are the super tasty and now some of them have even nice place to do the sitting and the eating.

          personally dont like wing machine, one night craved baked wings and all they do is reheat the wings that are in a big bowl under a heat lamp alllll day and night.

              Here's the problem restaurants have with baked chicken wings: it takes about 45 minutes to bake the wings properly, and most wing customers won't stand for such a long wait. So restos will usually bake them in advance, set them aside and then reheat them when they're ordered. It usually makes for dry, tasteless wings, and understandably cranky customers. Little wonder the restos prefer to stick with reliable, easy-to-prepare, and wildly popular (if monumentally unhealthy) deep-fried wings. Baked wings is one dish it's best to do at home, as I do. Though if anyone knows of a joint that bakes the wings only when they're ordered, I'd be intrigued to know of it. I doubt if any of the above-mentioned places do.

                I concur; bake your own. I go to Costco and get wings & montreal steak spice there and bake them at home for 45 min or so. Sooooo delicious! All for less money than two regular orders at Bistro on Avenue (my favorite restaurant wings)

                  I bought some wings to bake for Super Bowl and got them at Cumbrae's on Church. Wasn't that expensive and soooo delicious.

                    Yea they are good! Lou Dawgs and The Sister have great non-fried wings too.

          If you're NOT downtown theres alot of Turtle Jacks locations in the GTA now.. they're very popular here in Brampton, I can tell you that. They have fried, baked, and " on the barby " (grilled).. my favorite is on the barby

            Mullins on Bay at Wellesley has excellent baked wings. In fact, everything they have there is baked - they don't have a deep frier in their kitchen.

              Mullins wings are "reheats", so they are not deep fried but they are a bit dry and do not taste fresh.

              Mcsorelys on Bayview Ave has great grilled wings, the Rebel house on Yonge St. also has grilled wings. I prefer the wings at Mcsorelys over Rebel house. They are 1/2 price on Monday evenings. (eat in only i think)

                  crown and dragon FOR SURE.

                  they have a couple different flavours to pick from as well.

                  half price wings on Tuesday & Thursday & Sunday. Ultimate value!

                    I haven't been to Rebel House for years, but I recall it having a decent eclectic selection of beers.

                    Give Squirly's a call. They're on Queen West. A bit of a dive bar, but I recall having some really good baked wings there.
