      The Clubhouse Cafe wings are great, though they aren't buffalo style.

    2. Comw to Philly and get the grilled ones at Burger.org! They are worth thte trip and you can beat th tolls by ridding Mega Bus for$1 each way!!!

        FYI just found out today only the South St location has wings, the new one on Chestnut St isn't serving them for some reason.

          That is MOST unfortunate! Good thing that my Wings/Wings day was planned for the South Street location! Wings/Wings Day is the day my friends and I are meeting for wings before the Sunday afternoon Phila. Wings game:) http://www.wingslax.com/

      2. Smokey Joes in Teaneck actually has some great wings.

        Their wings are not the kind you would get at Dougies, but they are real buffalo wings. They also have a sweeter version which is mixed with bbq sauce.

        1. Ok let me rephrase . Where can I get the best wings, in the style of dougies?

            Ha, so you are looking for fake kosher style buffalo wings. Ari's wings at smokey joes are pretty damn good.

              I've never had Dougie's, what are their wings like?

          2. Dougies is still open in Teaneck and Great Neck , and usually they deliver anywhere for the Superbowl.

            1. Could I hijack this thread?

              Instead of Dougies style wings, where can I get real Buffalo style wings? I'm talking about wings with a vinegar based cayenne sauce (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_... ).

              Extra points for anyone that knows a place that has parve blue cheese dipping sauce.

                Smokey Joes in Teaneck. They serve the real deal with dipping sauce and celery.


              2. Kosh in Stamford has wings on its menu. I can't speak about the style though - I didn't order them.

                Also, having made wings last week, they aren't that hard to make. I baked them; authentic ones are fried. Basically, coat wings in a flour/salt/cayenne mixture overnight. The next day, met margarine and combine with hot sauce of your choosing (I made 25 or so wings, used one stick of margarine and 1/2 cup of hot sauce, which was the size bottle I had). Bake at 450 for 45 minutes, turning once in the middle.

                1. my husband used to be a big fan of the dougie's wings - until he discovered the frozen meal mart buffalo chicken wings found in the freezer section of most kosher grocery stores - sometimes he'll buy the dougie's wing sauce (also available in kosher grocery stores) and pour it on top, sometimes he won't - really, try the frozen ones before you make yourself crazy ordering them from a restaurant. they are very very similar - if not identical to - the dougie's

                    You just described my Super Bowl plans to a t. Although no Dougie's sauce, just more hot sauce.

                  2. Make them yourself, it's really easy…

                      this is too late, but everfresh has a one day sale on the meal mart wings for 6.99, which is a great price

                      i personally am making my wings for the first time in a while and doing a hybrid version of the alton brown method and the momofoku fried chicken sauce

                      1. re: shoelace

                        Interesting! I use Alton Brown's method. And, I just got the Momofuku book.

                        1. re: ATH44

                          i use the frozen dorot spice cubes for garlic, chili peppers and ginger, and add in a little bit of hot sesame oil to the regular sesame oil

                          side note, redplum.com has a $1 off 2 coupon for the dorot ice cubes and if you use it as trader joes, that makes the spice cubes and amazing deal

                                Yes they do if you can find ones for products they sell:)

                                Large multi pack of Dorot spice cubes apparently are available in Costco in Kansas. Has anyone seen them elsewhere? I have looked twice in Lawrence NY. $7.99 for 120 assorted cube package.

                                1. re: susiejane

                                  um no, but i would totally buy that

                                  have u requested it?

                                  1. re: shoelace

                                    I just emailed them. I have not yet inquired at the store.

                                    1. re: susiejane

                                      The reply from Costco was that there was no plan to distirbute in "my area" at this time but would forward request to the buyers. Will also request at my local store.
