Wings wings wings

The craving for awesome fabulous buffalo wings is here.

Any suggestions? I am in Andover, but will travel for yummy wings.

  1. Buff's Pub in Newton.
    It will be echoed here a bunch as well.

    As a kind of different alternative. Redbones in Somerville does great grilled wings. Mon-Fri from 4-6 is half price appetizers, and I believe they are on that list.

      I agree that Buff's does a good job with wings!

      I'd love to find a local version of garlic wings like I used to get in the Buffalo/Rochester area. Any sightings?

      1. re: rknrll

        Just went to Buff's about two weeks ago for the first time. I thought the flavor of the wings was right on for spicy buffalo, but the bone-in wings were quite tough. They had perhaps been fried a bit too long or something. We also ordered boneless honey hot wings and they were perfectly tender, juicy and delicious. The fries were also not great however and I'd probably just stick to wings next time. And there will be a next time for those tasty honey hot wings!

        1. We just had some really great ones at Beer Works Brewery in downtown Lowell (between Tsonga arena and the ball park). I was surprised, I love a great buffalo wing.

          1. Wendell's in Norton. Fantastic wings and sometimes I head down there from Somerville just to pick up some sauce to use on my own wings!

              Agree with you on Wendell's. Haven't had any in the area that even come close. I'm there every couple of weeks or so. What I like is that they don't mess around with honey flavored or other sauces. They just stick to varying levels of heat, but do offer boneless for those who like them that way.

                I need to check this place out for wings soon.

                Good wings at Buff's pub - good buffalo sauce, but wings aren't crisp enough for me- and when I've asked for them crispy, they come out overcooked - dry and dense.

                I enjoy the wings at Chicken Bone in Framingham as they are always crispy and juicy - but the buffalo sauce is just adequate.

                  Several different sauces are available at the 'Bone.
                  The Garlic Hot is good...

                2. re: TomH

                  Had Wendell's last weekend - I still prefer Buff's. Meatier....

                  Your mileage may vary.

                3. not buffalo wings, but the wings at Angelas Coal Fired Pizza in Saugus are terrific. Worth the drive.
