What Are Your Favorite Wings?


Just in time for the Super Bowl Epicurious has just come out with its list of America’s Best Wings. Philadelphia is represented by Federal Donuts interpretation of the Buffalo classic. And with the Wing Bowl all set for the Wells Fargo Center tomorrow, we’ve been thinking about wings a lot.

So we’re opening up to you, faithful Foobooz readers, what are your favorite wings? Are they FedNuts? PJ Whelihan’s, which provide the wings to Wing Bowl? Or do you have a favorite bar that does them just right?

Leave your favorites in the comments.
