A comfortable neighbourhood bar in Chicago that has a great atmosphere and which sees people coming from miles around for the cheap beer and huge platters of wings. You won't be hungry after one of their portions.
While they do have regular wings served by the bucket it is the monthly specials that you'll want to try here. Wings are always the focus and the portions are enough to fill anybody for the day! Plenty of good cold beer to wash down the hottest wings on the menu.
A proper sports bar that focuses on nothing but getting all the games on the big screens, serving cold beer and having a menu that is made for drinking with. The wings are off the charts good. If you are feeling super hungry get the combo of sliders and wings for one. The best of both worlds!
A proper Southern cooking restaurant where they put a huge focus on BBQ. The wings are amazing and they even do their own range of sauces that you can use for cooking at home. Wonderful branding and lots of amazing craft beers to wash those wings down with.
You might have heard of this place for their famous sandwiches but our advice is to ignore them and go for the wings. Huge portions of especially large wings that are coated in spicy sauce. The perfect start to a day of watching sport on their huge flatscreen TVs and drinking the heat away with a few craft beers.
As you'd expect any place that is dedicated purely to chicken are going to do a great set of wings. Small little space but their wings along with some awesome Spanish style sauces are to die for.
With several locations across the city you'll want to find the one that is best for you as their wings can vary by location. Don't be put off by the branding or casual looking restaurants because these wings are as good as they get. Ask for them hot but you'll want milk or beer on standby because when they say hot they mean really hot!
The one place you will want to come and eat wings in a group given the huge portion sizes and platters to cater for all. If you are feeling really brave try a portion of their "suicide" wings but you better be ready for a serious test!
One for those of you who prefer Korean style wings over the Southern variety. Amazing taste comes from the wings being twice fried and then rolled in one of their amazing sauces. Soy dip has to be tried to be believed.
Hard to know where to start with this epic Korean chicken joint. The wings on their own are superb but when you add in all the dipping sauces, the relaxed atmosphere and the fact that you can bring your own beer this is one of the best dining experiences you'll ever have. Food is just not meant to be this good!
