Chicken wings are a ubiquitous food that works well in so many forms: marinated, fried, smoked, grilled, innocently mild, ridiculously spicy, and so much more.
Austin’s best chicken wing bets include meaty lollipops from chicken wing trailer Tommy Want Wingy, Korean versions at Chi’lantro, duck-fat-fried takes from Roots Chicken Shak, halal ones from Arpeggio Grill, Buffalo chicken wings from Delray Cafe, Filipino iterations from Fil N’ Viet, and even a vegan option from the Cavalier. Order up on celery, dressings (ranch, of course), and beer, and the meal is complete.
