Las Vegas Chicken Wings

Vegas seems like a wing town, despite its recent remaking into a good restaurant city, where are the best (and hopefully hottest) ones?

    Any of these places NOT deep fry their wings? I'm not a fan of deep fried wings with sauce. I just prefer them grilled or oven roasted..

      try anthony's pizzeria in townsquare - coal fired chicken wings with grilled onions and garlic bread - tried them twice . Strange combo but it works for me - you might get some charring on the wings but i think it adds to the flavor and the experience

      Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Does Main St have a very spicy option for their wings?

      I'm not looking for gourmet wings, just good old fashioned bar food wings. I've tried foodie versions of chicken wings and they just don't seem to work well.

        they are pretty hot. not burn your mouth spicy but i bet you could ask for them hotter. the happy hour is 3pm-6pm m-f. 4.25 appetizers and $2 pints of craft beer. it's awesome.

          Boston Pizza, near OG, actually has pretty good wings. Not foodie type wings but very much bar food type wings. They are not the best I've had but they are a solid B/B+. They deliver if you are not too far away.

            Whoops.

            Slip of the keyboard. User error. My fault.

            I meant to write: "I wouldn't call Vegas a wing town."

            Seeing this thread again reminded me of a chain all around town called Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar. http://www.buffalowildwings.com/. There's about 10 locations scattered across the valley.

              the brewpub at main street station has not only wonderful craft beer but they also serve some killer wings. they run a happy hour where all appetizers are $4 i believe and the beer is cheap too. i hit this two or three times every vegas visit. wings once, beer several times.

                I second the Main Street mention. Love the red ale and the wings are killer too! If you want chowhound caliber wings, vegas isn't going to deliver..... sad
                I recommend Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon for chowhound wings. I luv those!

                  +1 for Pok Pok- THE BEST in the USA- IMHO

            I would call Vegas a wing town. If anything, it's a burger town as you can find a burger in every bar, restaurant and snack bar here.

            My wife and I used to go to the Four Kegs after seeing the the place featured on Diners, Driver-ins and Dives. My wife always ordered the wings.

              Not that they are the best, but the hottest I've found are at Chicago Brew/pub(ghost ).

                  No, sorry for not including the location, Chicago Brew/Pub or something located on Fort Apache/Sahara NW corner. About 12-15 minutes from the strip depending.

                I'd like to know the same thing...

                I live 30 minutes from Buffalo, NY, so it's hard to imagine anything in Vegas being as good as they are here.
