    Hot Wings

    Thought I'd start a thread on hot wings to try to block out the thoughts of impending snowy doom.

    A couple weeks back myself, Al_4_State and several other WRNL guys took a 10 hour tour of wing places in Des Moines and ranked our best.

    Here's a link to our winners:

    or just feel free to list your own favorite spot. we're looking for suggestions for future intestinal damage.

    Re: Hot Wings

    They pretty much hit all the good places in the article. I personally think CABCo's wings are the best flavor wise. Now I'm getting hungry for wings right now. Maybe I should go get some before getting snowed in.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: Hot Wings

    What was the reasoning behind not naming the places you visited in the first article?

    EDIT: I'm an idiot, I see them now in the italic text at the top.

    What did Cael do that he deserves to be fed to your dog?

    Re: Hot Wings

    the 7 spots in no particular order were:

    Jethros
    Gerris
    Victors
    Trophys
    AK Oconnors
    Court Ave Brew
    & Chicken Coop

    we left the "national" ones like Hooters & BWW for another day.

    Re: Hot Wings

    Agree with the oft overlooked Court Ave Brewery's wings. They are my favs!
