I might be overlooking any recent discussions, but I was thinking...

Where are the best wing spots in the Boston/Cambridge area? Don't have to be from a restaurant, but I can't remember the last time I had really good ones.

I am a gross fan of the Sidebars Pterodactyl (baby wings) and Rome Pizza actually makes up a really good batch for a delivery spot.

I would be curious to hear form other CHs

  1. I will add - I liked Buff's Pub - but they didnt live up to the hype

    1. There's a lot of good press for the wings at Golden Garden in Belmont, but they are made with an Asian take.... not your Frank's Red Hot and Butter..

        I was going to post about Golden Garden's spicy wings as well. Bonus is that the portion is quite large for an appetizer. I once got just the 2 appetizers of green bean noodles and spicy wings, and that was plenty for lunch.

      2. I like the S&S wings at the S&S in Inman Sq.

        I also love the wings at Buff's Pub. Make sure to ask for them extra crispy.

          I did - a couple of times- and they came out shriveled up and dry with an eraser like density. And when I don't they come out a little flabby and missing a little of that deep fried chicken skin flavor that makes wings great to me.

          Buff's is ok when I'm in the mood for wings as their buffalo sauce is good, but the fry job still needs a little work for me to consider them great.

          1. Buff's if I want to go out...City Slicker if I want delivery.
            DooWee & Rice also makes super crispy wings...only got them once with the spicy soy glaze, but they were great.

            1. Non-traditional suggestion, but I had the chicken lollipops at West on Centre a few weeks back and they were awesome. They push the meat up the (drumstick) bone so they are clean to grab, hence the lollipop name. Meaty, tasty, pricey. $12 and it might have been 8 or 10 drumsticks. They come in Honey BBQ and Buffalo.

                Lord Hobo also has some pretty awesome chicken lollipops on their menu. Super crispy, with a nice sweet chili sauce.
