Wing Tour 2012

Hey everyone, I just want to start this post by thanking all of you for the support and the comments and the facebook page likes, we couldn't have created any sort of a buzz without chowhound so thanks everyone.

So now it is time again for another tour. Few things different this time. We will be begining the first week of February. We will hit one place per week (instead of 2 like last time).

The official schedule is not made yet but here are the locations we have decided on so far:

-Bridgeview Tavern of Sleepy Hollow
-Half Moon of Dobbs Ferry
-Q Restaurant of Mt Kisco
-Big W's of Wingdale
-Sliders Grill of Wallingford, CT

we have a few spots still open please make your suggestions and help us out :)

any thoughts and/or comments please post!

  1. I thought Q in Mt. Kisco closed months ago? The one in Port Chester is still open.

    1. The Golden Rail Ale House in Newburgh. Delicious wings, and a bonus is that they have a really good selection of beer! They are the best wings in the Mid-Hudson area, in my opinion. Also, Darby O'Gills in Hyde Park, but that might be too far north for you.

      1. re: Solstice444

        i'm adding Golden Rail...is it a nice place?

        1. re: ryanallday

          It's a dive bar, but with friendly bartenders and patrons so it's not a sketchy place, haha. The owner is a very nice guy and he is often there. They are open from 2pm-close (not sure when close exactly is) so they aren't really open for lunch. If you like wings really hot make sure you say that and you will definitely get them really hot. Glad you are going to give it a try!!

      2. *Q Restaurant in Port Chester
        now added: Golden Rail Ale House of Newburgh

        1. why can I not edit my original post? hmm... anyways

          1. ADDED: Primo's bar and Grill of Clintondale, NY

              I know you guys love wings and did a great job last year. Any chance you might branch out to tacos?

              1. re: vinouspleasure

                thanks vinous. haha I do love taco's however I am far from an expert :)

                1. re: ryanallday

                  That's ok, you probably weren't really a wing expert last year but now that you've tried all those styles (and hopefully got up to buffalo), you are an expert. Ten or 15 taco joints and you'll be a taco expert.

                  1. re: vinouspleasure

                    we are certified wing experts =D

            2. - i see from the cm thread you like brodies, how about throwing that into the mix?
              - I mentioned your tour to a friend in rocklyn, here are his suggestions:
              - Bailey's Smokehouse
              - Olde Village Inn in Nyack, claims is as good as or better than candlelight.
              - Liberty's in Tappan

              I'm going to try a new place in westchester, if it's any good I'll post. btw, I don't think big w has buffalo wings, they do have some sort of hot/smoked wings that are good. If you get there, try the fatty brisket. I've been there three times and twice it was the best brisket I've had outside of texas. The other time it was too dry.

              1. re: vinouspleasure

                oh we are very familiar with the amazing treats of Big W's....whats the new place in westchester?

                1. re: ryanallday

                  Charchaels in thornwood. If you google the places in rocklyn you;ll see pretty good reviews for the wings.
