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!!!

    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.

      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!)

        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...

          Have you tried the wings at Cooper's Alehouse?

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

              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.

              Aloha,
              Kaleo

                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.
