Summer/Fall 2019 Chicken Wing Power Rankings (1-60)

August 28, 2019By Patrick Moran

If you listen regularly to my Moran-Alytics Podcast, read my blog wing reviews here or follow me on Twitter (@PatMoranTweets) I’m sure you’re aware of my fondness for chicken wings. In fact, perhaps the only thing I enjoy more than eating wings is power ranking them. This cliff notes version is I was born and raised in … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Potter’s Field

August 18, 2019By Patrick Moran

I’m not sure if Potter’s Field is actually located in West Seneca or South Buffalo. What I do know is I’ve been there probably a dozen times to enjoy several alcohol refreshments, especially annually around St. Patrick’s time.  What I’ve never done is try their wings, or if I have I was blacked out and … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Wiechec’s

August 17, 2019By Patrick Moran

The euphoria of feeling like I’m uncovering some of the biggest hidden gems for great wings has been my single-favorite part of visiting so many places during this recurring series.  I’ve been to Wiechec’s in Lovejoy on multiple occasions and for me, their Beef on Weck straight up rivals Bar Bill, Charlie the Butcher, Kelly’s … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Connor’s

August 17, 2019By Patrick Moran

I get tons of suggestions on my Twitter or Facebook on spots to hit, too many of course to ever realistically visit every place mentioned.  Ironically, not a single person mentioned Connor’s in West Seneca, other than my buddy who lives in the area and wanted to get together for a lunch literally in my … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Wingnutz

August 14, 2019By Patrick Moran

Be patient, wing fans because there’s a lot to unpack with this review than any other. Of all the wing joints in Western New York I’ve tried and with this posting we’re closing in on 60, Wingnutz in Kenmore presents the undisputed biggest conundrum yet. It’s located literally inside the Knights of Columbus and is … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Snyder Bar & Grill

August 13, 2019By Patrick Moran

I keep things honest with y’all when doing these. I never even heard of Snyder Bar & Grill in Amherst until Buffalo News sportswriter Jay Skurski suggested we meet up there to have wings before taping a podcast immediately after. I get countless recommendations from fans of places on Twitter and can confidently say this … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: The Blackthorn Pub

August 10, 2019By Patrick Moran

The Blackthorn Pub is one of if not South Buffalo’s most popular bars and compared to Seneca Street competition, certainly the most upscale.  An insanely popular spot among locals there’s a full menu and tons of room to sit at a table for dinner, enjoy a large patio during summer or plop yourself at the … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Klimek’s Tavern

August 10, 2019By Patrick Moran

My parents taught me to never judge a book by its cover and fortunately I heeded those lessons. Unless you’re from or at least know the neighborhood well, Klimek’s Tavern in North Tonawanda is not an enticing place, outside or inside. There’s not a lot around it either, especially compared to the scenery of a … Read More

Chicken Wing Review/QB Comparison: Essex Street Pub

August 6, 2019By Patrick Moran

In the interest of full disclosure I personally know the owner of the Essex Street Pub and have been friends since playing little loop football on the West Side together literally 40 years ago. I taped an episode of the Moran-Alytics Podcast recently here with Joe Yerdon from The Athletic and while most appreciative for … Read More
