wings in dallas?

So a lot of places have hidden gems on their menu, I'm looking for the place that their hidden gem is wings. I go to plucker's all the time - it gets me by, but it's not extraordinary. I actually like hooter's wings, but their sauce is so weak and it's a chain and gimmicky and blatantly annoying. Wing stop and buffalo wild, c'mon are you kidding me? All the wings I've had at pizza joints so far, fall flat on their face, I actually think most of them buy them from wingstop and resell them - they taste almost identical usually.

I'm going to try angry dog wings this weekend.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Not Dallas proper, but I would highly recommend http://www.saucedwings.com/. It's the only place that we go and don't have to ask for extra sauce, it comes that way.

      My favorite wing place closed (and it was also a Hooters wannabe), so I'm glad to get this rec. I totally love their spiel:

      Sauced is home to the best wings (& more) you’ll find in Dallas. Only you won’t find us in Dallas because the city feels wings hurt their image as a “world-class cultural destination”. The City of Plano thinks it’s worth the risk, and so that's where you'll find us at the corner of Spring Creek and Coit. It’s worth the drive, the walk, the bike, whatever it takes to get here. We make the best wings, that's our guarantee to you. They're not those tiny little wings like the other places that you might have tried. Our wings are large, our wings are juicy, and most importantly our wings are Sauced with over fifteen amazing flavors. Look, what we do isn't rocket science but it’s damn tasty. When that craving for some wings strikes, Get Sauced.*

        Wish they were closer to me in Uptown.

        The garlic parmesan wings with fries (well done) at Wing Stop are actually very good. Buffalo Wild Wing's aren't edible.

          Bryan Street Tavern. Best wings in Dallas.

            Last time I was at Wing Stop, I had multiple broken bones in a single order of wings. This led me to believe they use the very cheapest (i.e., worst factory farming methods) chicken available. I decided not to go back ...

                Perhaps so, but I've eaten my share of KFC and similar in my time, and never have I seen broken bones like I saw at Wingstop.

                  I meant my above remark as a frown to Wing Stop for having broken bones in their wings. Shame on them.

                Not doubting you and in no way affiliated with Wing Stop but I have never, ever experienced that.
