You love em, I love em.

In honor of this week's Panthers game against the Buffalo Bills, I pose to you this question...

Who serves the best buffalo wings in the Charlotte area?


GO!

Well aren't you mr fancy "i know a lot of yummy local restaurants" pants


Now...did I say I knew a lot of yummy restaurants or did I say that I knew chain restaurants weren't the most yummy?

If you're going to make fun of me at least get what I said straight. That was a terrible effort.

I put down 6 of their nuclear sauce wings.  They were hot, but nothing that was unbearable.

 

The Triple Atomic wings at Quaker State is hotter...and those were still good.

 

Hottest damn wing I have ever eaten was made by Ranucci (at one of our tailgates a couple seasons ago).  He was testing to see how hot he could make them (were going to be his Squeal Like a Pig wings at his restaurant).  TattooRhino and I were his test cases.....those damn things were PAINFUL.

 

sounds like he used pure capsaicin in those

Not quite, but close.  Still probably not close to the True Death challenge, which I'm guessing they have to really concentratet he pepper to hit 7.1 million Scoville units they clame.  Only for the idiotic.  AKA Madhatter.

My wings I make are the best....I'm from buffalo...so we know how to make wings...everyone that comes over to watch the game wants me to make them....

playing the bills calls for beef, don't you think?

DD Peckers in Pineville.


Peckers are awesome. The restaurant too.

You live in Huntersville/LKN area, eh?

 

Try Killingtons off of Exit 23. Gold Rush = Phenomenal. Some of the best wings I've had in the Charlotte area. 

 

Never had the wings from JCT. Not a big fan of that place. 

 

Yep. Killington's was the first restaurant I went to when I moved here in 2011. I get their shrimp and grits when I go, but I'll give the wings a shot sometime.

Hickory Tavern?  Are you kidding me?  Their wings are one small notch above Tyson frozen wings.

 

I don't eat HT wings often. The last time I had them was a month ago at my fantasy football draft and they were pretty good. Certainly not the best by any means.

 

I don't eat at chain restaurants but I do like Hickory Tavern and PF Changs. The fiesta salad at HT is very tasty.

The wings are phenomenal. I get 1/2 gold rush and 1/2 honey charred bbq. Their wings and blue cheese dressing is some of the best I've ever had.

Reminds me of a gal I used to date

Need more info....where can I find said True Death challenge.

 

Because yes.....I am idiotic enough to try any spicy food challenge.

After all of the wing talk yesterday, I was craving them.

 

due to time and location (was heading home from watching my daughter play middle school volleyball), I stopped in for a take out order of wings from Hickory Tavern.

 

It somewhat scratched that itch, but really left me wanting more.

 

thinking about a lunch run at DD Peckers today.

Oh Snap.....definitely gonna give that one a shot.

 

The no drinking with be a bitch, but it is just something that has to be tried.

My vote is for the Wing King in Fort Mill (right by my place) ... HOT BBQ FTW

The old BW3 off Woodlawn was pretty good too, that was like a decade ago though (never try a 6-wing bet with the nuclear hot sauce or whatever it was called, couldn't even make it to the 2nd wing)


Is that the one near the CVS heading east out of town?
PSA

There is a wing contest at the Springs Dairy Barn on Friday, Sept 20 starting at 6:30. It's the Fiddle 'n Pig Shindig BBQ & Bluegrass Fest. Wing contest on Friday and BBQ on Saturday.

Yessir

Man, I miss DD Peckers. I don't work in South Charlotte anymore so I don't really get many chances to go now.

Wings at DD Peckers IS a reason to travel to South Charlotte.

Ask for Justin and tell him you're a friend of the Roaring Riot. Peckers has good wings and they're a true Panthers bar. Justin has a 10' flag that I'm taking on our trip to Miami and hanging it outside my balcony at the Clevelander.

Edit: 10' Panthers flag that is

I know Justin pretty well. They have great ownership and a great staff. 

 

Really like a little dive bar where they always remember their regular patrons and get to know you.

I am to try some of these spots when I come to charlotte again. Might be there later this month

Beyond what's already been mentioned, I've always thought the smoked wings at Icehouse (if you're not a die-hard fried wings or nothing person) are pretty damn good.

I might drive to Pineville this weekend just for some damn wings now haha. Now that I don't live nearby, I get a dozen wings and have them there, then buy some to go and have them the next day.

 

In my opinion, they're the best in Charlotte. I'm just proud others in this thread know of the greatness that is DD Peckers.
