Buffalo Wings

I'm from New York and just a couple months new to Seattle. I am completely stuck trying to find a great place for buffalo wings. I live in Capitol Hill, there has to be SOMEWHERE that has those amazing hot buffalo wings that I used to get weekly in New York. Please HELP!!!

      I haven't but I have heard good things. Are they your favorite around?

      1. re: memyselfandthepig

        I'm not a huge wing eater, but they definitely reminded me of what I've eaten in NY, whereas others have not.

        Hi, Gizmo:

        Went to Cooper's tonight and liked the wings. They're not the meatiest, but the seasoning was well-balanced. They are drier in style than I expected, and no real crust or crisp. But very good. Thanks for the rec.

          Glad you found them worth the trip, Kaleo. I don't seem to find myself in Magnolia very often these days, but I plan to check out The Boxcar next time out.

          All the best to you.

      3. The Boxcar in Magnolia offers their traditional wings with the requisite whang for true Buffalo afficianados. Large, high-grade pieces with a high % of drums. 50 cents a wing from 4-6 weekdays. 12 is a meal. Their teri ones, not so much...

        1. With the caveat that I have never been to New York, but I do love buffalo wings, my favorites are at Cooper's Alehouse on Lake City and The Attic in Magnolia.

          Also I have a soft spot for WingDome on Greenwood. Except the part where they took all my pictures off the wall and changed the rules for getting one back up. (Who can eat 7 #7 wings in 7 minutes!?! Madness!)

          1. You might as well just give up now. There's no such thing as a good chicken wing in the Seattle area. It's downright bizarre.

            The best you'll likely find in this area is Wing Dome, and I would rate them no better than a 2 out of 5.
