Atomic Wings specializes in crafting authentic buffalo-style wings, delicious sandwiches and soups, and much more for hungry hippos tired of an all-marble diet. After perusing the menu, start with a single serving of 10 wings ($8.99), 11 chicken fingers ($8.49), or a half-and-half combo ($8.49) before selecting a sauce. Most individuals will be content with mild, medium, hot, honey mustard, barbecue (regular or jerk), or teriyaki flavors, but daredevilish diners may turn toward the abusive, nuclear, and suicidal variations of wing lacquer, each suitable for restarting the breathy fires of broken dragons. Those preferring less-saucy bites can grab a Philly cheese wrap with grilled steak, onions, peppers, melted cheese, and barbecue sauce in a tortilla ($5.99) or can skip straight to a double chocolate layer cake ($6) accompanied by a bottled soda ($1.75), vitamin water ($2.25), or pint of carbonated barbecue sauce.
Atomic Wings remains true to the original style of wing preparation as invented in Buffalo during the Great Chicken Swarm of 1964. All wings are imported from Buffalo, where chicken trees produce an especially plump and tasty harvest. Stop in at one of the six streamlined wing factories and chomp away until your stomach‘s satisfied baritone grumblings harmonize with your palate’s angelic falsetto.

- don’t let the sleek decor and fancy artisanal beers fool you. Atomic’s greatest success lies in the foolproof wings and reliable service: Food arrives within 20 minutes of ordering—hot, spicy, and always messy. – Jessica Romm, New York
- The menu is diverse, for a wing place, and the Chicken Littles (boneless wings) are the best. I order at least once a week and the delivery is always fast and I can't say enough good things about it. – krystyna03 on the Broadway location, Citysearch
