Whenever I'm out for a game, someone inevitably buys wings. Lots of places have wing specials on Sunday for football, but my problem is that most of the places are awful. I know the first place everyone thinks is the Candlelight and it's this CH'ers humble opinion that they are awful. I once told the story about a party where someone brought 100 wings from the Candlelight and another brought 100 from the old Rockwell's in Tuckahoe. End of the party, one tray was empty and one still had about 60 wings. Everyone was whispering behind the person who went to Rockwell's back about how lousy they were. While cleaning up, we grabbed the trays and saw something taped to the bottom of the empty tray - Rockwell's.
That all being said, I've had quite a few wings recently and I have to say, the best I've had are at Stephen's Green in Crestwood. Nice size, decent heat, they come out hot. Not dripping with sauce, but definitely not lacking. The chicken is moist and they don't have that fry oil aftertatse that I can't stand. 25 cents on a Sunday. You can't go wrong. I don't like teriyaki sauce, so I can't comment, but two people I was with Sunday loved the teriyaki wings.
Any other good spots? Anyone agree or disagree. And don't tell me Brazen Fox, just because they are free.
