Real Buffalo Wings! does anyone know where to find 'em?

Hi all,
I am an east coast transplant from Boston, and one of the very few things i have been able to find since i moved here (aside from a good fried clam) is Buffalo Wings! isnt' that crazy? In Boston they are plentiful and almost every bar serves them and they are almost all cooked the same way and served with COPIOUS amounts of Beer.
They are good and hot and delicious and apparently not anywhere to be found in this town. Now, if you are from San Francisco, or the bay area, i do not expect you to respond, cause the buffalo wings they have in this town ,are NOTHING like what they serve in most bars back east. The wings here are more salty and sour than they are hot. They are not deep fried, and they are never served with real blue cheese dressing, they always seem to come with Ranch dressing instead.
I have been searching for good wings since i got here and my husband thinks i am insane, since i order them at almost any place that has them on the menu, and they always suck, but i am determined and convinced that there must be a place in this town that does them right.
So.... if any one reading this has felt this same frustration, and knows what it is i am looking for, and knows where to find it, then please, let me know!
i will name a few places in Boston that live up to par of the type of wing i am looking for (for those of you that are out here from boston and might be familiar with this sort of thing) Wing it, Sunset Grill, The common ground pub (remarkably, all of these places are within a one block radius of each other)

ok, i am done,
thanks in advance,
