Although Buffalo wings are synonymous with sports parties, they’re just as popular at Crimean War reenactments and annual meetings of the Galactic Alliance to Destroy Sports. Snack on wings no matter the social function with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of buffalo wings, burgers, shrimp, and more at Wing Zone, with locations in Uptown, Metairie, and Marrero.
With 15 finger-devouring flavors of Buffalo wings and a menu offering meaty burgers and fresh salads, Wing Zone has become a national go-to for delivery and takeout. Nosh on wings in their boneless or original style, with orders ranging from 7 ($5.99) to 50 wings ($31.99), and use the flavor's heat index (1 for mild, 4 for hottest) to determine the sauce's spiciness and ability to provide warmth when coating a body. The garlic-parmesan sauce artfully blends garlic with cracked pepper, and the hot honey-teriyaki mixes honey with ginger and soy. Wing Zone also serves a variety of side dishes, such as wedge fries ($1.99–$3.49) and beer-battered onion rings ($2.99–$4.99), which offer the occasional respite from wing munching. Savory half-pound burgers and chicken sandwiches ($7.99+) make for an adequate post-wing dessert.
With this deal, you can stay inside one of Wing Zone’s welcoming storefronts or take your wings home for snacking during episodes of a variety of emergency-room reality shows. Since each location is also open late, feel free to make a late-night call to Wing Zone for a night- owl delivery.

- And for many of these warriors, their Waterloo came in the form of a tent for the Atlanta-based chain called Wing Zone, which offered a challenge to all comers: eat 25 of what were by all accounts the hottest wings at the festival and win $250 (which could presumably help pay for the tongue transplant you would need afterward). – Pat Kewley, Salon
- To this day, Wing Zone has remained dedicated to supporting emerging and established entrepreneurs, promoting the originator of chicken wings – Buffalo, and maintaining a fanatical following. – Hall of Flame
