A man in seach of the Emerald city’s best wings

The Search for the best Wings

It started this spring… I was hungry, it was a Saturday, I could use a beer.  What to get?  What about some wings?  Done and Done.  So there I was grubbing on a little bone in Chicken Wings.  Some were hot, some were sweet, and some were not tight (i.e. good).  Then the light went off.  I need to find the best wing Seattle has to offer!  Now its winter and all my friends are asking how my Summer Wing Quest went.  It is now time to document it out.  I cant say I have found the best yet, so the search continues!

    Dad Watson’s in Fremont has very tasty wings, diverse beer selection, liqour, and a full menu. The wings here are larger in size than most found around Seattle. Not overcooked or over-breaded they come out fresh, hot and moist inside. The flavor is a combination of sweet, spicy and tangy. Just right is how I like to describe it. You get a good bite from the spicy-ness but the after taste leaves a welcoming flavor with your mouth wanting more. Beer, they got it and lots of it. I like a good IPA with my wings or a little stella. Beer really depends on the quality of wings and at this place anything goes well with theirs. These are going to be hard to beat…

    You are right. Dad Watson might just be the best wings in the city. They are, as you put, large!

    We here at Seattlewingman approve of theses wings.

    I would say they are great traditional wings.

    They are for sure a 5 on my scale!

    Maybe I might have to go eat some tomorrow!

    Seattle has S*%T wings. Why the hell did I move back from Denver? Oh well… If I hade to eat wings here, it would be Coopers or the HH wings at Wingmasters. They’re pretty much 1/2 off.

    We just moved to Whidbey Island from Austin, Texas. So far not being able to find any wings (good or otherwise) is my only complaint. Any suggestions of restaurants near Coupeville (north end of Whidbey) even in nearby towns off island?

    For a different type of wing, try The Signatures in Lower Queen Anne. It’s a Vietnamese restaurant and go there during happy hour (or late night happy hour). Get their garlic wings and a beer for about $5. DELICIOUS!

  6. I just found some great wings in Seattle last night! They were a bit small but the taste was great! I found them at Elysian Brewing on East Pike.
    Went in there on a fluke after the bars and they were great! Our waitress was Heather, and she was terrific. She says their secret is baking the wings first, then flash frying them. She also said their recipe for the sauce had less butter (I believe) than usual.
    Wingman, check them out!
