Wings... A twist on an old Favourite...

Connoisseur Mar 7, 2011 05:44 AM

Although we have a lot of chains dedicated to wings.... It occured to me that we could improve those threads. think it would be great to add a little added bonus to that popular discussion.

Please list your favourite place for wings add include any specials or incentives they my have i.e Half price wing nights!?!?!

Example; my favourite wings are The Tara Inn on Eglinton (Scarborough) Half price wings every Wednesday.

    does any resturant have wings similar to Bar Bill's in the buffalo region? I dont understand why the wings here are so much suckier, while bar bill's is so super crispy...

      Bar Bill's wings are the best I have ever had.
      Whether or not they are crispier I don't know because I always order wings naked with sauce on the side (and often take my own sauce as well).
      On a good night, Duff's and Tara come close in size and juiciness but more often are a bit overcooked and a bit dry.
      I have wondered if Bar Bill's parboils as opposed to parfrying its wings.
      Next visit I will try to go at a slow time and ask the cook.

      By far the best wings in the city are on Queen St West at Hot Wings Grill and Rib House
      Large size wings , hot and fresh served with the most delicious fresh store cut fries .
      Seven or eight large jumbo wings , not breaded and the sauces are delicious . About 20 different flavours . My favouritesare the lemon pepper and parmesan garlic . Great room and very pleasant waitresses provide great service . Prices are extremelly reasonable - Lunch every day and all day and night Teusdays only $ 7 .45 for a regular order and $14.50 for a large order . Even the regular prices at $ 9.45 and $ 17.45 are fantastic value -- A great little gem of a spot to hang out , relax and enjoy great wings . Other menu items such as ribs and pork look and smell great too . 5 flat screen TV`s for the sports games . I love this place

          I will challenge that. Crown and Dragon imho is the best in the city and they have half price wings every Tuesday after 5 pm.

            Duff's special is Tuesday night about $3 off.

            Crown & Dragon half off Tuesday night Thursday night and all day Sunday.
            C&D's best wings are breaded they do have unbreaded wings but they are cooked in advance and reheated. I don't like breaded but these are the best I have had.

            Bull & Firkin (Yonge and Merton) half price on Saturday and Sunday.

            I haven't been to Tara for a few years - too far away - but they were up there with the best.

            Only because Anchor Bar isn't here.... I was completely turned off by Duff's vinegary sauce with no butter. Made me sick.
