If there is one thing about Buffalo that we all know and love, it has to be the wings. It's such an important part of our life here that we have an entire national festival dedicated to wings.
You can get good wings from all sorts of places, but if you really are looking for some of the best flavors around, then there are just a few you need to make sure you check out.
There's tons of diversity in wing types and flavors is one of the great things about living in Buffalo and Western New York, and everyone has their favorite go-to flavor. Lots of people go with the classic mild or hot that is offered by just about every wing and pizza shop. Then you have specialty flavors like Cajun Honey Butter BBQ that you can get from Bar-Bill or some Crown Royal BBQ from the Amherst Ale House.
No matter what your palate has a taste for, you can rest assured that your favorite is out there somewhere.
If you're in the mood for taking a drive around town, you want to make sure you check out these local restaurants and try some of these awesome flavors:
John Young's Mumbo Flavor Wings
There has been a renewed interest in this wing flavor lately as more information about John Young has come to light. As the true originator of the Buffalo Wing, you have to stop by the Broadway Market and try the very first Buffalo Wing sauce ever made.
BBQ Loganberry Flavor Wings from Wing Kings
I can't think of anything else more Buffalo than Loganberry flavor wings. While you're at Wing Kings grabbing the other flavor, grab a single order of these.
Honey Lemon Pepper Mix Flavor Wings from Carbone's
This wing sauce really surprised me when I had it the first time, and I am sure it will surprise you as well. So head on down to one of Carbone's 3 locations and place an order.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Flavor Wings from Wing Kings
I have to say this flavor really threw me for a loop when I first heard about it, but Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of my favorite cereals and it makes sense that it's one of my favorite wing flavors.
Bourbon Molasses Flavor Wings from La Nova
La Nova on West Ferry or Main Street will have you feeling pretty good after trying some of these Bourbon Molasses wings, just make sure you don't need to drive for a little while.
Jamaican Jerk BBQ Flavor Wings from Franco's
As a lover of just about every type of jerk chicken flavor, I have to say that these wings should be on your agenda. One of Franco's 5 locations got you covered if you want to grab an order.
Anchor Bar's Original Buffalo Wings
When the Buffalo Wings first became a thing, this was the first flavor offered by the Anchor Bar. There is a lot of nostalgia attached to this flavor and that's why you gotta give it a try.
