Crying Thaiger

Crispy, meaty, and strongly seasoned, the crying wings at Crying Thaiger deliver a balanced level of spice that will stick with you a bit without totally destroying your tastebuds for the rest of the meal. The menu is huge, but find room for the wings.

Monument Restaurant & Tavern

Copy Link

Oftentimes the best chicken wings are fried, but Monument’s wood fire-roasted lemon rosemary wings, served with buttermilk ranch, may convert even the most diehard fried wing fan. Like it spicy? Opt for the ancho chili version, which is served with a cooling side of blue cheese dip.

Hot Chix

Copy Link

The Hot Chix headliner is their Nashville-style hot chicken sandwich but the fried chicken wings, which include a Nashville hot style, garlic lemon pepper, and more, are similarly worthy of their own spotlight.

Bonchon Chicken

Yes, it’s a chain. And yes, its wings are worthy of your dollars thanks to their double-fried crunch. Choose between soy garlic and spicy, or get half and half. Massachusetts locations include this one in Cambridge’s Harvard Square, Waltham, and Salem.

The Smoke Shop BBQ

Copy Link

Andy Husbands may be known for his barbecue — brisket is a must at the Smoke Shop — but don’t overlook the wings, which are cooked with agave and pit spices. They’re some of the best in town. There’s also a hot version available, made with fermented habanero and brown butter, but nothing beats the sticky-sweet glaze on the agave version. Smoke Shop now has multiple locations all around Boston; check them out here.

Buff's Pub

Copy Link

According to Buffalonians, Buff’s is the closest it gets to real-deal Buffalo wings in the Boston area. Open over 40 years, this Newton Corner pub serves five heat levels of Buffalo wings and also has a few other sauce choices, including maple hot, garlic cheese Sriracha, honey barbecue, and more.

Coreanos

Copy Link

The double-fried, shatteringly crisp wings with yang yum sauce — a symphony of

gochujang fermented chili paste, garlic, sugar, and a ton of spices — at Coreanos are some of the best in the entire city.

Grace By Nia

Copy Link

Nia Grace’s stylish supper club was one of the most anticipated restaurants to sail into the Seaport in 2023. Before you chow down on the Cajun jambalaya and the whole jerk chicken served with cornbread stuffing, make sure to order up the sweet heat chicken wings. The beauties are tossed in gochujang honey sauce and served either double-battered and country-fried or chargrilled.

Fiya Chicken

Copy Link

Allston is the spot for Korean fried chicken in Boston, and this award-winning spot solidifies that fact. Fiya Chicken offers twice-fried chicken in many forms (wing, tender, and sandwich). Get the wings, which come in four varieties: soy garlic, spicy Korean (which is made with gochujang), honey mustard, and Fiya, which is the aptly named scorcher sauce.

Eight chicken wings are arranged in a circle on a white plate, pointing toward a small white bowl of dipping sauce in the middle.

Tenderoni's

Copy Link

At both its High Street Place and Fenway locations, Tenderoni’s dishes out an Italian-American-ish spin on the favorite snack. Find garlic-parmesan wings at both High Street Place and Fenway, with Calabrian buffalo served with creamy gorgonzola as a second option at the larger Fenway location. Either way, the house-cured wings come with that satisfying crunch.

Moonshine 152

Copy Link

Since you’re definitely ordering chef Asia Mei’s buttermilk-fried chicken wings, the real question is: Regular or grande sized? Luckily, both portions pack that magic combination of salty and savory with a crunch. The creamy-with-a-kick poblano ranch dipping sauce provides a cooling contrast to the fresh-from-the-fryer wings. Go all-in on the comfort food vibes by ordering up party tots that are tossed with kimchi butter, sweet chili, and truffled teriyaki sauce.

Slade’s Bar & Grill

Copy Link

There’s often a reason to be skeptical when a restaurant’s own menu declares a dish to be “famous,” but the brag is warranted at decades-old Roxbury icon Slade’s, where the fried chicken wings, tossed in “secret seasonings,” rightfully get top billing. Choose between crispy or extra crispy versions, with sweet chili and buffalo wings also among the offerings. Or stop by on a Tuesday or Friday for the baked wings.

Suya Joint

Copy Link

The saucy suya wings at Suya Joint are tender, juicy, and will leave your mouth happily buzzing thanks to its carefully calculated spice blend. Get them alone or in one of multiple meal combinations: the Joint Sampler includes wings, meat pies, moi moi (a steamed bean pudding), and a stew; or order the wings, plantains, and rice or beans. Meanwhile, the dry-rubbed version packs a punch of spice without the stickiness.

Pantry Pizza & Kitchen

Copy Link

This standout neighborhood pizza joint on Dorchester Ave. features a whole section of its menu devoted to just chicken wings, both bone-in and boneless. And what’s more: in case you’re feeding a small army — or just really hungry, no judgment! — you can order up to 100 wings. Choose between original or sauced wings, with Hawaiian teriyaki, mango habanero, and barbecue among the host of flavors. Each order comes with dipping sauce and celery, too.

Flames is a Caribbean mainstay in Boston. Head to any of the restaurant’s locations in Mattapan, Brigham Circle, Brockton and Dorchester — with one at Peabody Square and a second at Grove Hall on Blue Hill Avenue — to find outstanding renditions of tender, flavorful jerk chicken wings.
