Wing spot in the Beach?

  • 9

My dad is coming to visit next week and I'm looking for a great wing place in the Beach area. I've tried both St Louis and Wild Wing and left both disappointed (Wild Wing had pricey soggy wings). I'm hoping to find a great Wong place to take my dad to. Any suggestions appreciated. I'm hoping for something as close to the Beach area as possible. Thanks!

  1. Try Green Dragon on Kingston. I have always had good luck there!

      Otonabee - I will do that! Thank you

    2. Our friends who live in The Beach took us to both Gabby's and Gull & Firkin. We enjoyed the wings at Gull & Firken quite a bit and remember the price being good. We did not enjoy Gabby's as they were burnt. Not sure if it was an off night, however we only went to each place once. Also, we enjoy the smaller fryer wings without breading just to give you an idea of what to expect. Both were on Queen. Let us know where you end up and how you liked the wings.

        Fryerlover - I tend to prefer a breaded wing and I know my dad does too but I'm curious to try the Gull with my wife another night. Always up for trying something new. Thanks!

          motodan - The Gull we visited once last spring and the wings were not today's size fryer, but medium and crispy on the outside. Again, not breaded though. Glad you found a neighbourhodd spot for good wings.
          Are the wings at Green Dragon fryer, roaster, or med. size? Thanks

      2. Otanabee - Ok, I tried Green Dragon and the wings were GREAT! Thank you again for the suggestion.

          Glad to hear you enjoyed it! It really is a great little neighbourhood pub.

            The waitress told us they were not 'breaded' but lightly dusted in flour before frying. The result was wings that were quite big, with a very crispy thin coating on the outside - which seemed to keep the inside quite juicy. Actually some of the best wings I've had! Very meaty!!
