I have lived in the WNY area all my life and I will rate the top wing places to go in WNY:

1. Brennan's Bowery Bar-----Clarence, NY---Huge wings and excellent
2. Duff's-------------------Amherst, NY
3. Elmo's-------------------Getzville, NY--excellent cajun wings
4. Anchor Bar---------------Buffalo, NY

I went to the Anchor Bar back in 1967 when they use to serve up big bowl's of them on the bar for free. The free wings would entice the bar crowd to drink more. Back then, chicken wings were often thrown away as scrap meat. Eventually, they started selling them at the Anchor Bar 10 wings for $1.00 or 20 wings for $1.75. Boy, how times have changed.

    I'm not gonna let this wing discussion continue without mentioning the greatest WINGER joint to ever hit the scene. One word, two syllables...Cluck-U. Enough said. Their signature wingers at the "Thermo" level (12 large or 18 huge, both are respectable) along with their spuds are a better than perfect combination. THERE AINT NOTHING LIKE THEM- IT'S AN ADDICTION.

      To me Buffalo Wings are inedible. I'll stick with barbque or teiaki

        I wouldn't consider eating a chicken wing any more than I'd consider eating the part of the bird that goes over the fence last.

          Does anyone in the CT crowd know if Archie Moore's in New Haven is still open? I remember their wing sauce, which used to be sold in the grocery stores, was a strange, neon orange color, but it sure was good.

            For the superbowl, I made wings using a Tandoori spice mix I bought at an area Indian food market. They turned out really well, not too spicy but with wonderful flavor. The spice mix was combined with yogurt and vinegar for a marinade and then the wings baked.

            My kids liked them, but said they missed the "sauciness" so we tossed some with a little barbeque sauce.

                Tried Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch the other day (first time). Got a sampling of 3 sauces. None were better than alright IMHO. I like BuffaLouie's wings much better. I go to one in Muncie near Ball State but appear they have locations near IU, Valpo, and I think Purdue also. Since I have never gotten to try true Buffalo wings in Buffalo NY, I don't know if these would pass muster but for around here they seem pretty tasty.

                      I love love love buffalo wings! My friend and I are addicted to them and we often go out to eat wings when we have the time and the money. Wings To Go is a great place to get wings. They are a little on the small side but are still very good. We get the Extra Hot, but once we decided to be daring and get the Homocide Wings, the hottest wings they served, and some Suicide Wings, the second hottest.

                      Oh man. Let's just say that the Homocide wings were *completely* inedible. You know how wings normally come in a red/orange sauce? These suckers were *brown*. I could barely stomach one of them, my nose and eyes were watering so much. (It was torture at the time, but great thinking back on it!) What made it even funnier is that we tried to eat some Suicide wings next, and we couldn't even *taste* them. The Homicide wings completely blew our taste buds!! Incredible stuff.

                      I have never had wings at Cluck U, but I've heard that their wings are bigger, and believe it or not, in order to eat their hottest wings you have to sign a waiver that basically says you will not hold Cluck U responsible if you pass out or hurt yourself by eating the wings. They're that hot, apparantly ... if you manage to eat 5 of their hottest wings, you get your picture taken and you get a free t-shirt as well.

                      And, even though it's a fast food chain, Domino's has some really good wings. I was suprised at how "hot" their hot wings really were. (Most "hot" varieties are more like a "mild" to me.) They aren't some dinky wings, either, they're pretty big! It was very satisfying, and I get wings from there when I get the chance.

                        I have tried Buffalo Wild Wings and found them vastly overrated. The wings are so small it is ridiculous. The best that I have had is in a place in Joliet, IL called Glory Days. The sauce (hot) is just the right balance of flavor and heat, gives you that little sweat on top of your head, and the wings are big enough to actually get some meat off of them.

                          Has anyone tried the wings from Lorenzo's Old Rail Tavern in Barrington New Jersey? They won the best wings in New Jersey in 2002.

                            We have one in Columbus, OH just north of campus on High Street. I go there from time to time becasue they have great chicken sandwiches. I did get the wings once and they weren't bad but if I am remebering correctly, they are breaded which is a buffalo wing no no with me.

                              I can't help but wonder which Cluck-U you ate at. Our's is TERRIBLE! I guess it could have been a bad day, but I don't think I'd go there again, not even for beer. The first and last time I ate there the wait person took my order while smoking a cigarette..

                                Quaker Steak. I think they have branches in PA and OH. The wings are big and juicy--not crispy, so I think they're baked--and they have a pretty good range of sauces. Being a bit of a traditionalist (teriyaki doesn't do much for me), the classic medium is good, and the Arizona Ranch is incredible, like traditional sauce but with a tang to it. Worth driving a long way for.
                                BW3--meh. We have lots of them here. Nothing special. The local or semi-local places are almost always much better than the big guys.

                                  By far my favorite place for wings is:

                                  Alliger's House of Wings
                                  201 Spring St.
                                  Sayre, PA 18840
                                  (570) 888-9805
                                  http://home.stny.rr.com/alligers/index.htm

                                  Their wings are a large and crispy. They now have a selection of 20 sauces. My favorite flavor is the "Sicilian" which has decent heat AND flavor (Franks Red Hot+ margarine+ few good "mystery" spices based). These wings are not breaded. They are the real thing.

                                  If you want deathly hot, try their "Nuclear". While not the best tasting, people have left in ambulances from being too cocky with them. The taste is something like mixing Dave's Insanity sauce with powerful horseraddish sauce.

                                  For a time in the mid to late 1990's their wings suffered. Fortuately they have made a strong come-back to their 80's. early 90's prime.

                                  (please forgive my brain as I have been up for over 36 hours!)

                                    I recently tried a new sauce all the locals here are raving about. It's Gumby's super garlic barbeque. No powdered garlic on these wings! And the flavor was fantastic! It's nice to try a sauce that actually sticks to the wing for a change.

                                      No, the worst have to be those wing things they're now selling at KFC. Absolutely terrible. I was hungry and bought some. Ate one. Choked down another. Then threw the rest in the garbage. An awful, awful product.

                                          I can't believe you mentioned Pub 199! Besides the wings, the clams are the best! Have you been to Mountain Valley Lately? It has changed hands and gone a little down hill. Although, to be fair we have not been there for about 8 or 9 months. Will have to try them again.

                                            Drovers Inn in Wellsburg, WV has the best buffalo wings i've had. Decent sized with a fantastic hot sauce. The way to eat them is to get them hot while drinking a cold beer in the dungeon underneath the building. Its a small bar area with about five to six tables and theres about 100 beer steins hanging on the ceiling.

                                            Unfortunately, there isnt a very good website for Drovers (its also a bed and breakfast). The downstairs is never pictured as the upstairs (pictured) is for finer dining with good home cooked meals for guests.

                                            Truly is a great place for wings though.

                                              Buffalo Wild Wings in the Buffalo area won't win any chicken wing contests. Their chicken wings are small and their sauce seems to be a ketchup type sauce which lacks flavor. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate Buffalo Wild Wings a solid 2.

                                                There is a place in the Hudson Valley Region called Planet Wings. It origanlly started out as a Pizza Place in Middletown, New York. It was During SB XXX that the owner had an idea- why not sell wings with Pizza. The idea cliked- he was sold out out wings in under an hour. The rest, as they say is history. Log on to www.planetwings.com for further info

                                                  Stay away (far away) from KFC for wings. They are AWFUL!

                                                  Go to a local bar instead.

                                                        The Anchor Bar's wings in Buffalo area are living on legend more than on substance. In the Buffalo area, we do not refer to chicken wings as Buffalo wings---we call them just "wings"! Other areas of the country refer to them as Buffalo wings.

                                                        This weekend, the area is having the following:

                                                        Competitors from all areas of the country compete to make the best wings!

                                                          The best wings in Buffalo, and perhaps the cosmos are often overlooked, and can be had at Gabriel's Gate on Allen Street in Buffalo-HUGE, juicy and with excellent sauce, they beat anyone, anywhere, hands down !!!!

                                                            It's been so long since I've eaten wings in Buffalo...I'll give them a try as soon as I can. I've heard others mention Gabriel's, too.
