Our Food Fight last week was over wings. We asked you to vote on our picks and the overwhelming winner was Justin:

  • Bird's Nest: 82.9%
  • Great Sea: 17.1%

🍗 Both of these places are great choices for your Super Bowl festivities, but you also gave us some great recommendations:

Luke G.: Reno, across the street from the Logan Square Blue Line stop. Nice heat and nice crisp edges without the heavy slathering of sauce.

Mary G.: I am partial to the smoked wings at Pearl's Southern Comfort in Edgewater. Naked with the Alabama white sauce. Delicious!

Philip F.: I feel like you have to mention Buffalo Joe's wings in this conversation! Their buttery buffalo sauce is the best I have had.

Carrie G.: dak has delicious Korean-style wings.

Austin S.: Not just wings but the fried chicken at Au Cheval is the best in Chicago!!! Crisp on Broadway in Lakeview is also great.

Philip P.: We go to Dong-Ah on Touhy in Lincolnwood. Sticky, spicy Korean wings with lots of meat. Let the finger smacking begin.
