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 food truck Plow Burger. Order up on celery, dressings (ranch, of course), and beer, and the meal is complete.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants themselves.
