Summer 2019 Chicken Wing Power Rankings

July 14, 2019By Patrick Moran

I love chicken wings and love power rankings things even more. After spending my entire life in Buffalo I moved to Florida in the summer of 2016. After trying wings at a half dozen Florida spots and detesting each I quickly realized how much I took wings back home for granted. While living in the … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Blasdell Pizza

July 16, 2019By Patrick Moran

Blasdell Pizza has four locations throughout Western New York:  Hamburg , South Buffalo, Dunkirk and Blasdell.  Regretfully I’ve had wings at three of them, two on multiple occasions.  Yes, that’s an ominous start and seeing this review won’t get any better, let’s just get this over with. PROS: If I’m being completely honest, nothing. CONS: … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Jokers

July 16, 2019By Patrick Moran

Located on Electric Avenue in Lackawanna close to the Blasdell border, Jokers has a classic dive bar feel, although the interior is actually quite impressive and makes up for the terrible parking options outside.  The establishment has been around forever although it’s only been called Jokers for the past few years.  They have a nice … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Bar Bill

July 14, 2019By Patrick Moran

On a national level it’s Anchor Bar or Duffs that’s most associated with chicken wings.  However, if you’re a Western New Yorker, Bar Bill in East Aurora is widely known as the most popular spot.  Does it live up to the hype?  Let’s dig in. PROS: Umm, yes it lives up to the hype.  I … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Kelly’s Korner

July 12, 2019By Patrick Moran

One of my favorite things about wing spots is that much like the food itself, they come in all sorts of varieties.  You got your fancy spots and your (affectionately known as) holes in the wall.  Kelly’s Korner definitively falls in the latter. Located on Delaware Avenue and Hartwell in the heart of North Buffalo … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Anchor Bar

July 12, 2019By Patrick Moran

The first time I had Anchor Bar wings a few years ago I enjoyed them a lot. So much, in fact that I had them Power Ranked in my Top 15 and also ahead of Duffs.  To say that caused a shit storm in my Twitter mentions is an understatement, but I don’t care. My … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Big Tree Inn

July 12, 2019By Patrick Moran

Because so many current and former Buffalo Bills as well as various sports media members can be found regularly at Big Tree, with the close proximity to the stadium a big reason why, it’s easy to assume their wings are overrated. People probably go and eat wings there because it’s right next to where the … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: La Nova Pizza

July 12, 2019By Patrick Moran

As someone raised on the west side and actually having delivered pizza at the original location as a teenager I’ll always have a huge soft for La Nova. However, as a much respected journalist and host of the future award winning Moran-Alytics Podcast, I’d be doing legions (or dozens at least) of fans a huge … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: M.T. Pockets

July 12, 2019By Patrick Moran

As someone who lived most my life in Buffalo, grew up on the West Side and spent plenty of time living in North Buffalo there’s few things I enjoy more than Hertel Avenue.  I’ll take a beautiful spring or summer day of sitting on a patio and enjoying a cold one at a Hertel Ave … Read More
