Ways with Wings

They're on nearly every bar menu, but not all wings are created equal.


Any wing aficionado has had moments of indecisiveness. Garlic or Thai? Barbecue or hot? The Chesterland Tavern has you covered, letting you create your own ($7.99, dozen) by mixing any of their 19 sauces. Try BBQ Thai and Southwestern Spice for a two-sauce-covered-thumbs-up taste. 8190 Mayfield Road, Chesterland, 440-729-1817, chesterlandtavern.com

Spicy Blueberry & Miso Maple

Released last month, Brothers Lounge's new menu takes the Most Original award with its spicy blueberry and miso maple sauces ($8, dozen). Either flavor is light on the dry-style wings, so if you like yours sloppy, it's worth 25 cents for a side of your sauce. 11609 Detroit Ave., Cleveland, 216-226-2767, brotherslounge.com

Garlic Parmesan

Some are meaty, some are crispy, but it's rare to find the drum or flat that is both. Out of a dozen wings ($7.75) at Mulligan's, it's rare to find one that isn't. There are only seven sauces, but the robust garlic Parmesan's quality makes up for lack of quantity. 6131 Highland Road, Highland Heights, 440-461-2434, mulliganshh.com
