1. Ten Bells Tavern

Copy Link
232 W 7th St
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 943-2677
Visit Website
An order of Ten Bells' chicken wings along with a cold craft beer is about the best post-work snack we can think of. The wings aren't your garden-variety buffalo-style, but rather slathered in a sweet-and-tangy glaze with a deliciously funky blue cheese sauce. (On Tuesdays, get an order of wings and a beer for just $10.)

2. Bryan Street Tavern

4315 Bryan St
Dallas, TX 75204
(214) 821-4447
Visit Website
If you forego ordering BST's wings to skip straight to the excellent pizza, you might want to reconsider. The wings here are beer-basted which makes them extra moist, but definitely ask for them extra crispy. The classic hot and the spicy ranch dry rub are both solid bets; avoid the "thermonuclear" option at all costs. (Best news: Wings are half-price on Wednesdays, giving you more money to spend on beer.)

3. Sakhuu

Chicken wings you can eat with a fork really exist, and you'll find them at this friendly East Dallas BYOB Thai restaurant. The wings are partially deboned before being stuffed with a mixture of ground chicken, rice and seasonings, then fried to crispy perfection, sliced into easy-to-eat rounds and drizzled with a sweet sauce. (Pro tip: For delivery, hit up offshoot Sakhuu Express.)

4. Malai Kitchen

3699 McKinney Ave
Dallas, TX 75204

The wings at Malai are left whole rather than being split into the flat and drummette, so they're a little messy to eat, but it's totally worth it. Glazed in a deliciously sweet-and-spicy (really spicy, if you want) sauce, they're also just $5 during happy hour.

5. No 1 Plus Chicken

2240 Royal Ln, #211

(972) 488-9100
Looking for some Korean-style fried wings to fill the Bonchon void? This place might just to the trick. A side of slaw will help quell the burn from the spicy, crunchy wings -- as will a very large, very cold Hite beer. [Photo: Ericka L./Yelp]

6. Wingbucket

1200 Main St
Dallas, TX 75202
(214) 760-9491
Visit Website
Downtown residents are lucky to have Wingbucket within walking distance. Wings here are served whole and available in about a million different flavors, including lemon pepper, garlic parm, mango habanero, and somewhat oddly, sour cream and onion. (Surprisingly good sides, too, including parmesan truffle fries, creamed spinach and loaded mashed potatoes.)

7. Wing Shack

3260 Irving Boulevard #100
Dallas, TX 75247
(214) 630-0100
Visit Website
This off-the-radar house o' wings located in a random strip mall has a dozen-plus flavors of generously sized, fried-to-order wings, including some unique ones like mustard barbecue and roasted garlic. There's also some pretty decent fried rice if you feel like carbing it up, as well as crinkle-cut fries, fried okra and more.

8. The Local Oak

409 N Zang Blvd
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 946-4625
Visit Website
The wings at this friendly neighborhood spot are breaded, but not overly so, and deep-fried to crispy, juicy perfection, then tossed with one of three different housemade sauces: "Asian," honey barbecue or "Portuguese." Just close your eyes and point to one, because you really can't go wrong.

9. Greenville Avenue Pizza Company

1923 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX 75206

If you like crispy skin on your wings (and really, who doesn't?), GAPC is a good bet. The traditional hot is solid if you want buffalo-style, but for something different try the sweet-and-spicy orange chipotle flavor. Best of all, there's a good chance GAPC delivers to your front door.

10. Big Mama's Chicken & Waffles

Copy Link
2737 Hatcher St.
Dallas, TX
(469) 726-2384
Visit Website
Breaded fried chicken wings and soft, sweet waffles are a match made in heaven. Slather it all in syrup and butter -- sorry food snobs, it's the fake stuff that comes in those little plastic pods -- and maybe ask for extra seasoning too; it's magically delicious. (Being drunk for all this is helpful but not necessary.) They also have Kool-Aid, if you're into that.
