Time again for: WHO HAS THE BEST HOT WINGS?
- Hershey Bomar
Had any good wings lately. Maybe a friend brought some to your super bowl party? I want to know about it.
The rules are simple:
1. Hot wings. By that I mean buffalo wings, spicy wings, anything goes. American, Asian, barbecue, whatever.
2. I'll order from a chain but I've never had good wings from one. But it would be nice and convenient. So shoot.
There are a few contenders but as far as Im concerned no definitive winner. Just a first and second place.

mean and green
the best i have had are at Bay Cities Italian Deli, just the right amount of spcieyness and full of flavor, chicken meat tender and pulls right off the bones. great stuff. even better than the sandwiches.
darn it, gave away one of my secret treasure troves.
(since everyone always orderds the sammies here but usually not the wings.).
Wings 'n' Things on Crenshaw not far from King. Good stuff! Try their deep fried veggies too--like southern tempura. I like the mushrooms. Dip everything in their hot sauce and their ranch/white sauce. That reminds me I need to go back...
Here's a place that doesn't get mentioned much on the board, for the OC folks. Jumbo, meaty wings fried and served with either: 1) Spicy Buffalo type sauce (eh) or 2) Jammin' Jamaican jerk sauce (yeah, baby!)
The wings are fried expertly until crisp, and still juicy. The sweet syrupy jerk sauce kicks you with herbs like thyme, rosemary, black pepper, and who knows what else. It does not have ginger, scotch bonnet chilis, allspice and other more potent flavors of authentic jerk seasoning, but it's very good nonetheless.

re: Reality Check
I just went to WingNuts two nights ago in Costa Mesa. They've been only open for less than a week. You can get 2 flavors for an order of 10. I got Atomic and my girlfriend got Cajun.
They were great and the Bleu Cheese dressing was nice and chunky. Easily the best wings in the OC an I've tried them all.
