Buffalo wings worth consuming??

Hey Philly Hounders,

So I moved here about a month ago from Minneapolis/St. Paul and have received some great advice from you thus far. If it wasn't for chowhound, I don't know how I would have successfully made my cuisine transition...

One thing I have yet to find is a really good buffalo chicken wing. BONE IN. There was a bar in MN that had the best buffalo chicken wings: juicy, perfectly crispy fried with a wonderfully spicy, vinegary, buffalo sauce and cool creamy bleu cheese. Where can I get something like this??

I live near PCOM on City Ave and am willing to drive (I have a car) up to 10 min. Any ideas?!

I should also say I looked through threads and haven't found much...

      Wonderful! I will try to get there asap :)

      Anywhere else chowhounders? Anywhere in center city or on the mainline?

        I was at Chickie's and Pete's (Packer Ave location) last night and I have to admit that the wings were pretty good. However, I don't think there is a C&P within 10 minutes of PCOM.

          Here is a good thread on wings in the burbs and Philly.

          http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/784270

          The one place that seems to always be mentioned with great wings is Moriarty's 1116 Walnut.

      If you want great wings - lots of different flavors, including Italian Parmesan - try The Harleysville Hotel in Harleysville, PA. Local bar with great food, great beer and wine prices, as well as wings, nachos and other bar food. Little far from Philly, but just two miles above the Lansdale Exit of the N.E. Turnpike Extension if you feel like a drive in the country one day.

        I'm a fan of J.D. McGillicuddy's wings, especially the Rasta wings (Jamaican Jerk) at their Ardmore location. They actually have alot of flavors and multiple locations. The closest one to you is Manayunk, Ardmore, or Roxborough.

            manny browns on south street has 15 cent wings on monday nights, and the bayou in manayunk has 20 cent wings on monday and tuesdays. both have very good wings, the low price is just a bonus.

              I loved the wings I had at Flanigan's Boathouse in Wayne. In addition to the standard buffalo sauce, they have a bunch of others - thai peanut were surprisingly my favorites.

                The best place for wings is my house. On Oct 27th I am having my annual Bat Wing party with 6 sauces (including a 6 million death wing sauce), fired pickles, fries, spider web funnel cake, and so much more..PM me if you would like to attend. Lots of paramedics and UDPD will be here with friends and family as well as a few unmet people. Costumes are encouraged and kids welcome.

                  Try the wings at the Pub at Penn Valley. They have 3 different styles. I think they are good though they may not be the best in the world plus they are within your requirement for 10 minute drive.
