WINGS!

  • s

I've been having a serious wings craving as of late. Where can I find good, hot wings? I've tried the St. Louis wings but they weren't anything special, contrary to what I've heard before.

  1. Duff's!!

    on Baview south of Eglington is your best bet.

    IF you want a drive, Morty's wings in Waterloo are not bad either

      People think this is crazy but the wings at Sneaky Dee's (College and Bathurst) are awesome. Good amount of sauce, and good value because they are so big. The large portion at $17 can feed three hungry adults. I'm over 200 pounds so I'm talking real hungry. All the other food there is excretable, and the draft beer is usually skunky but the wings are good.

        Scratch Daniel's in the beaches have awesome wings. Whenever my dad comes in from out of town, he HAS to get his fix here. I'm only too happy to go along.

          if you go to scratch daniels, get the 'tower' of onion rings! yumm

          I second the Sneaky Dee's recommendation! I really like the medium sauce there and they do a pretty good job at saucing them for me (hey, I like my wings messy!). They are the biggest and meatiest wings I've had in the city and a very good sized portion...I usually have to doggie bag!

          I have to agree with both of these - Duff's and Morty's are some of the best wings I've had.

          Am I the only one who thinks Hooters wings are bad? You can order them 'naked' to get rid of the breading, but they're still sub par. I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone goes there - a family restaurant known for its wings with bad wings! Must be some other thing that I'm missing. It's not for the owls, I'll tell you that much.

          1. re: Lorne

            I'd concur with Duff's. My wife and I go there about once a month and they're pretty awesome wings!

              duff's... wings are basically vinegar

              i have tried and all star wings (woodbine and 16th) with 96 (NINETY SIX) different sauces. They are big wings but not cheap (20 for 14).

              duff's doesn't have a change (and in buffalo, its anchor for the sauce)

            2. re: Lorne

              Agreed... DUFF'S is number one for Wings in the City. However, for those of you in the WEST end... check out The Blue Goose in Mimico... great old tavern, AWESOME wings.

              1. re: BuH

                Finally tried Blue Goose the other day...wings are juicy, but "hot" wasn't, and the self-serve ordering, served-on-a-styrofoam-plate atmosphere was a bit off-putting. On the bright side, one pound of wings costs under $7 and beer is cheap.

              2. re: Lorne

                I second Morty's:)

                Yummy wing specials on Mondays and Thursdays... have patience for a table though, it's packed on those nights.

                1. re: sugarcube

                  Morty's seems to have slid downhill a little...was there just over a month ago and wings were undercooked (stuck to the bones and red). Server claimed this was normal.

                2. re: Lorne

                  Duffs does not dust their wings, resulting in a monotonous, boring wing, dousted in vinegar dyed red.

                3. How about All-star Wings.......they have dozens of flavors with cryptic names like SnakeBite, and Blonde

                  ..they overcook the wings sometimes, but trying all the flavors is quite the experience!

                  It's located in a plaza at the northeast corner of Woodbine and Hwy 16 in Markham/Unionville.

                  1. Scratch Daniel's in the Beach. The wings are large and crispy, 2 for 1 on Monday nights. The fries are quite good and they have a very decent ceasar salad.

                      Scratch in the beech is closed now. Land lord kicked them out

                    2. My favorite wings place is Harbourfront Bar and Grill located at 10 Yonge Street. I have tried Duff's and many of the other recommendations on this site but still find this place to be the best place to have wings and watch football on sunday.
