10 best spots to get wings in Metro Detroit

International Chicken Wing Day is Saturday


DETROIT – Wings will always be a fiercely debated food, no matter the venue.

Wings can come in many different shapes, sizes, flavors and breading, with an array of different sauces, usually ranking on the spicy scale.

We're going to stray from the Buffalo Wild Wings/Hooters wings of the world. Those are good, too, but for the purpose of this list, we'll try and stay local.

Great wings, lots of house made sauces and as a plus - they serve poutine. 

6. The Block - Detroit (Midtown)

The Block is a fairly new Midtown eatery serving classic American style cuisine with a little bit of elegance. Here's a note from a reviewer on Yelp: "We had ordered the wings with parm garlic for an appetizer. You can get these grilled or fried, obviously we went for fried! Let me tell you these were some real wings! Meaty, large and the sauce was fantastic. This was no bdubs."

5. Bugsy’s - Warren

Order a nice basket of wings with some checkered paper underneath and you'll be wondering why your friend, who claims to be a wings expert, never told you about Bugsy's.

4. City Wings - Detroit (New Center)

Can't go wrong with this New Center spot. Lots of different wing options, sauces and rubs. Garlic parmesan wings are a fan favorite.

We dare you to try the "Hot Suicide" sauce. Or don't. Also, 50 wings for $40!

2. Library Sports Pub & Grill - Novi
