Searching for decent wings in Birmingham

curej | Jun 28, 2009 08:36 AM

Where do Birminghamites go for excellent chicken wings? I've tried the chains: Buffalo Wild Wings (embarrassed tiny little things maybe from a cornish game hen, nyeh), Baumhower's (awful...the sauces seem to consistently evade the meat and wind up in a puddle beneath the pale, bland wings), Exotic Wings (only had them in bulk-serving-style from a pan at a group dinner, but they may be the best I've had in Bham)...

Jim N Nicks wings aren't bad, but there is no flavor variety there, only "heat levels".

I'm not a "deep-fried" Buffalo style purist....I really loved the (?baked) wings at Wild Wing Cafe in various locations east of here (but in our latitudes). If they'd come to Bham I'd be there regularly....but alas...I'd also love to find a place that did great Chinese Wings (crispy five-spice style or the sticky honey/garlic/chili pepper style like those I used to mow through in a little Chinese joint across the street from the old MUSC in Charleston). I'd really enjoy being able to grab some of the delicious smoked wings like I had at Dinosaur Barbecue in Syracuse, NY, if someone around here made them.

'Course it goes without saying, but I'd like the place to also have a great selection of ice cold beer, and to not charge extra for extra ranch or bleu cheese dressing (what an abomination).

Give us a little feedback, wings lovers.
