The Ultimate Philly Buffalo Wing String

rbarr | Feb 10, 2010 04:35 AM

My boys and I live for great wings, and sadly the Philly area is pretty weak in this department. To be great, a wing must be:

1. Very crispy without being breaded
2. Have a great FLAVORED sauce, preferably with multiple heat options, including a true scorcher
3. Not too big, not too small
4. A quality blue cheese dip, extra points for carrots

We rate each category 1 to 5 (though we often cheat and use half points for high scores).

We've tried all the Philly usual suspects, and all are pretty lacking when compared to the gold standard, Jeremiah’s in Rochester, NY.

The best we have found is The Artful Dodger, though we always order them extra crispy. 5 for crisp, 4 for sauce, 5 for size (the crispy wing tip puts them over the top), 4.5 for dip (they have carrots)

Other favorites?
