Recently my girlfriend and I were out-of-town and had some really special “lemon pepper wings.” That has us both wanting to try all of L.A.’s special wings and therefore we need a list. The lemon pepper wings were not of the Hot Buffalo style but we like Buffalo wings also. Please include any style of wings that are a “eat with your fingers like the animal you are” kind of meal. I recall that Burger Boy has mentioned a place off the 10 fry (maybe Bar-B-Q style?) but I can’t find it. I hope he checks in here. Below is a list (in no special order) of some of the places I know of that make outstanding wings but I hope this list grows.
