Tons of great places to find some good wings in Western New York but these are 10 of the best spots to hit.

Bar-Bill

Located on Main Street in East Aurora, Bar-Bill is known as among the best wings in all of Western New York. Many say THE best. The quality of the wing is superb and they paint on their hot sauces, rather than shake it on. They now have a northtown location in Clarence.

Nine-Eleven Tavern

Located on Bloomfield Avenue in South Buffalo, Nine-Eleven is one of those places that locals know about but visitors don't. Try to go here if you haven't.

Duff's 

The Sheridan Drive location used to be the main stop for wings for, my family when I was growing up. The sauce is everything I want for wings, heat but not unbearable with flavor.

Amherst Pizza & Ale House

Another place that may be a hidden gem. For the record, I get medium or hot sauce 99% of the time at other places, but the BBQ wings here are fantastic, especially the Crown Royal BBQ variety! Located at Crosspoint Parkway in Getzville.

Gabriel's Gate

A favorite for many here in Buffalo. Gabriel's has some of the best quality wings around and if you're around the Elmwood Village or Allen in Buffalo, this is a go-to for wings.

Doc Sullivan's 

Living in South Buffalo, Doc's is a stone's throw away for me and the wings are a go-to item on their menu. I think most know about this South Buffalo staple but might be a hidden gem for others. They're near Mercy Hospital on Abbott Road.

Elmo's 

This is certainly a hidden gem, that only locals know about. Luckily, I knew of Elmo's since I was a kid growing up in north Amherst. Elmo's wings are the item you must get if you visit. The place isn't very big and can get very crowded but it's worth it. Located on Millersport Highway in Getzville.

Anchor Bar

People outside of Buffalo know about Anchor Bar, so perhaps it's not a trendy pick for locals, it still has some of the best wings around for sure. The original makers of the dish. Located on Main Street in Buffalo, with other newer locations in the suburbs,

Kelly's Korner

Kelly's has a ton of great food but be prepared for a packed room, as the place is pretty small. Going during non-busy times is the key. Big, flavorful wings is a signature of Kelly's. Located on Delaware Avenue in Buffalo.

Mammoser's Tavern & Restaurant 

Hamburg's own wing stop. Located on South Buffalo Street in Hamburg, Mammoser's has some of the most flavorful wings around and brings the right amount of kick of heat.
