Самые вкусные куриные крылышки в Чикаго! / Best Wings In Chicago
With the Super Bowl right around the corner, now is the time to start stocking up on game day snacks. A favorite football tradition for many is the delicious fried chicken wing. Whether you like it covered in blazing hot sauce, a sweeter BBQ option or argue for team ranch or blue cheese, we've got some picks for our favorites around the city.
Located in a neighborhood littered with gluten-free and all natural options, Crisp is Lakeview's fried chicken haven. Their Korean style chicken, including the jumbo wings, is available in four variations: Plain Jane (sauce-less), BBQ, Buffalo and the crowd favorite, Seoul Sassy. While I appreciate the fact that you can tailor the already delicious buffalo sauce to your heat preferences, it’s hard to beat that gingery and subtly sweet Seoul Sassy. The jumbo wings are plump and with an addicting golden fried crunch.
Crisp is located at 2940 N Broadway.
As a gluten-free eater, wings and bar food are usually off limits for me. Monti’s earned my love and all of my wings budget when the bartender overheard me talking about how I wished I could eat wings and offered to change up the recipe on the fly for me. Normally wings are either battered, dredged in flour, or they are tossed in the fryer with all the other battered food. He offered to have the kitchen whip up a batch to cook in the convection oven instead of the fryer.
Monti's is located at 4757 N. Talman Ave.

Don't laugh but this Streeterville sports bar makes some of the best – and most extreme – wings in Chicago. Stunt eaters and people with cast iron stomachs may not be able to resist the allure of the ghost pepper wings but their regular buffalo wings are arguably the best in Chicago.

The idea of going into a bar whose primary purpose is to blare loud sporting events from a jillion oversized TVs makes my skin crawl, but the wings here are so plump, juicy and tasty that I will weather the hellish atmosphere to enjoy them. I like to get there early to avoid most of the crowd so I usually end up pairing a huge order of their boneless wonders with a mimosa bucket – I know, it sounds weird but it’s delish – and I get a ton of their spicy garlic sauce on the side to dip the wings in. Start with an 8 piece order your first time but don’t be surprised if you end up ordering two.

In five years, I’ve learned that enjoying chicken wings but not buffalo sauce can be a bit of a problem in this city. While many bars offer decent BBQ or plain fried options, it’s hard to find a truly delicious non-buffalo wing. That’s what I like about Output though. Without sacrificing your dignity for a trip to B-Dubs (that’s bro speak for Buffalo Wild Wings), you can find a fairly impressive array of wing flavors at this West Town sports bar. I recommend stopping by for a plate of wings after work and moving on sooner rather than later – it’s a good, cheap option if your tastebuds can’t take the heat.
Output is located at 1758 W. Grand Ave.
Buffalo Joe’s became a regular stop for my friends and me 20 years ago, when our newly acquired drivers’ licenses afforded us the chance to explore the cooler parts of the North Shore. All these years later, and their tasty buffalo wings continue to make Buffalo Joe’s a “must-stop” any time we find ourselves in Evanston. Their signature wings come in mild, spicy, suicide as well as BBQ. The wings are fried up crispy before being tossed to order in their tangy, buttery sauce.
Buffalo Joe’s is located at 812 Clark St., Evanston
