Hi, all,
I'm searching for mouthwatering buffalo wings.
Where are people's favorite place to get these?

    Not Buffalo, but Dinosaur BBQ has my favorite wings in NYC.

      They are my favorite thing on their menu as well.

        Is the sauce on their wings the same as their barbecue sauce? I have always find their sauce way too sweet; it'd be too far off from a proper Buffalo wing for my palate.

        I've always found the wings at 1849 to be addictively good, but the service is so actively hostile and insulting towards the patrons that I refuse to go back anymore. Even the management was rude and actually lied to us on one occasion. I've been on the search for a good replacement -- on a recommendation I tried Wogie's, but while good, they weren't great.

        It seems like the Old Town bar near Union Square gets singled out for its great wings a lot. I read something recently (Village Voice maybe?) that named it the best "bar snack" in NYC, though I have to say that sounds suspicious.

          RUB or Dinosaur for bbq wings
          Blue Smoke for chipotle wings
          Waterfront Ale House for their wings made with Sam's Famous hot sauce.

            +1 for RUB. i prefer them to Dinosaur's.

            in a thread about wings, it would be wrong not to mention Croxley's. they're inconsistent, but at $0.10/pc, they're still good when they're bad. their beer menu is unmatched by many. unfortunately, the crowd can be undesirable at times.

              What are the wings like at Croxley's? I made the mistake of going when the boneless wings were on special and was served flakes of chicken breast in a sweet sauce. It was barely indistinguishable from bad General Tso's, but I wonder if I should give their regular wings another chance.

            Definitely Blondies on the Upper West Side. Had them after a few beers and they blew my mind. Big, Meaty, and the sauces are great.

            Classically one of the best wings i've had in NYC.

              Also not buffalo, but the spicy Korean style fried chicken wings at Bon Chon are lip searing, tongue tingling soy and garlic bites of heaven...can you tell I REALLY love this place? ;)

                I have had surprisingly good buffalo wings at Five Napkin Burger on Ninth Ave. If you want something different, the korean style at Bon Chon on east 38th street are addictive.

                  Bar Coastal on The upper east side 1st ave and 78th st. Hands down the best in the city.. true traditional style, no cheezy attempt to re-invent.. awesome!!!! go in.. delivery is tough cause they can get a bit soggy in the box!!
