Best Chicken Wings In DFW

Game time, hang time or just anytime wings are an ideal way to enjoy your favorite pastime without becoming too full for a meal later in the day. Chicken wings are the go-to snack for any occasion, and many North Texans have their favorite pit stop when it comes to hot wings, or any kind of wings. We traveled all over the DFW metro areas to find the best wings for your taste buds. Some were blazing hot while others were flavorfully delicious. So check our list of the Best Wings in DFW.
5225 Belt Line Road, Suite 220
Dallas, TX 75254
(972) 386-0689

This national upscale restaurant chain has four locations in the DFW metroplex, but that doesn't mean the wings are not to die for. Houlihan's Thai Chile glazed wings with sesame-ginger sauce are mouthwatering and finger-licking. Served as an appetizer or an entry, you can eat them alone or share with a friend, but we wouldn't advise it because they are that good. You can enjoy daily specials and a happy hour at one of the four locations here in DFW. Don't think you'll like the Thai-inspired wings? Then try old faithful their Buffalo wings with bleu cheese. Just be warned … both have a little heat.

Smokey John's Bar-B-Que
1820 W. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 18
Dallas, TX 75235
(214) 352-2752

There is nothing like good bar-b-que, and Texas is known for its bar-b-que. Smokey John's, a locally-owned and operated BBQ restaurant is not only known for its BBQ and great homemade sides, it's also known for having some of the best smoked wings in the DFW. These fall-off-the-bone wings will make you crave for more. The smoked hickory flavor is the right way to start your party or to satisfy your palette. But they are not on the everyday menu — you have to wait until Saturday, or you can pre-order these wings at least 24 hours in advance. Fortunately, you will not be dissatisfied as you enjoy more than two pounds of the best smoked wings you've ever tasted from a BBQ restaurant.

SIRG Wings & More
1001 N. I-35 E., Suite 324B
DeSoto, TX 75115
(972) 224-0061

Did we forget to mention they have some of the best tropical punch and lemonade flavored Kool-Aid?
