Ten Best Chicken Wings in Palm Beach County

Ah, the Buffalo wing. Or is it just chicken wing? Hot wings? Does it even matter? Because, let's be honest, there's pretty much nothing better than a good fried chicken wing.

Like any food with a cult following of diehard fans, there are many different ideas behind where the chicken wing originiated. Some say they are the creation of Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, where owners Frank and Teressa Bellissimo were the first to deep fry frozen chicken wings, then toss them in cayenne hot sauce before serving. Yet another claim suggests a man named John Young served breaded chicken wings in his special "mambo sauce" at his Buffalo restaurant, John Young's Wings 'n Things, in the mid 60s.

Even if we don't know where they came from, many have a standard for how they should be served. Some say in oder for it to be a true "Buffalo" wing, the chicken should be deep fried and tossed in a vinegar and cayenne-based hot sauce. But like so many other famous foods, over the years grilled and breaded versions with special, exotic sauces have popped up, winning the hearts (and stomachs) of so many Americans nationwide.

Even though it's not quite National Chicken Wing day yet -- that's July 29th for anyone counting down the days -- we're celebrating early. Here are the best wings in Palm Beach County.

Not your average dive, this Palm Beach Gardens establishment has a good assortment of all the most important things: music, beer, and food. Most notable: the chicken wings, voted among the best in West Palm Beach by adoring fans near and far. Pair them with any one of the 75 bottled beers on the menu, grab a seat to enjoy some live music, and you've got yourself the perfect evening. And it's all served until the wee hours, as the kitchen closes at 2:30 a.m.

This Boca Raton establishment is known for its vegetable and fresh organic, farm-to-table focus. But what we're focusing in on are their Korean-style chicken wings off the starter menu. They're served with a special "good for your Seoul sauce" and a fresh pickled cucumber kimchi for a creative departure from your standard celery and blue cheese.

I love Beer Trade Co. Cafe & Beer Lounge's wings. All of them! My personal fav are the jalapeno honey wings, but no matter the flavor, they are cooked just right and crispy.. mmmm
