The Graveyard Tavern
Impossible to get to-go, as I'm not even sure Graveyard has a phone. If they do, they don't answer. It's always worth throwing on my overalls and rolling in rough to fill that void inside with zombie wings.

Best Hot Wings BOA Award Winner

J.R. Crickets
Everyone's got their private addictions, some more illicit than others. On the scale of dependencies, an inability to go without hot wings from J.R.

Everyone's got their private addictions, some more illicit than others. On the scale of dependencies, an inability to go without hot wings from J.R. CRICKETS is low on the scale of severity, but its voracity is nothing to be laughed at. Flaming orange-red, crispy-skinned yet succulent, these tongue-searing treats fly out of the original location on Spring Street. Chunky, house-made blue cheese dressing provides another layer of zesty pleasure. Full-size arcade games such as Tekken and Ms. Pac-Man, and a jukebox loaded with tunes from the finest hours of Journey and Boston make dining there even more fun than taking home a box of 70 all for yourself. "631 Spring St., 404-881-1950, and other locations." less...

1006 N. Highland Ave. NE and other locations 404-873-6529 When a craving for Buffalo wings hits, it hits hard and fast. Nothing but the crispiest, spiciest drums and flappers will do. Luckily, no matter where you are there is sure to be a Taco Mac nearby, since metro Atlanta boasts more than a dozen of the popular purveyors of poultry parts. Typically small- to medium-sized for optimum flavor, these wings are "consistently" fried up right and drowned in varying degrees of hot sauce, per the customers' request. Dip 'em in a cup of cool bleu cheese dressing, chase 'em with crunchy celery sticks, then wash it all down with your favorite brew. Craving satisfied. less...

Taco Mac Virginia Highlands
What makes Taco Mac's Buffalo wings the best in town is their small but meaty size. No one wants to gnaw on a stringy wing the size of a drumstick.

Taco Mac's wings are the perfect combination of crisp skin, tender meat and spicy sauce. Dunked in chunky bleu cheese dressing, balanced with crisp celery sticks and chased with a brew, they are a meal in and of themselves. less...

The Wing Factory
With more wing sauces than you can count on your sauce-covered fingers, the Wing Factory's grounded more than a few birds in its time. (A better fate than a McNuggets box, no?)
