Chicken wings are the perfect bar food—you can eat as many as you want, the spicy sauce makes cool beverages more refreshing, and the leftover bones can be made into a cool necklace for guys. Chow down with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Wings, Ribs, and Sandwiches
On the menu, chefs give squadrons of bone-in and boneless wings names such as Paper Airplane, The Zeppelin, and F-16 before they soar across taste buds in fleets of seven or up to 120 ($6.49–$73.99). Ribs wallow in sauce upon a bed of crinkle-cut fries ($9.39/half rack; $18.19/full rack), and sandwiches, wraps, and burgers snuggle with chicken or beef and toppings such as lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese ($6.49).
Wings Over Arlington
There's a certain kind of unique, primal pleasure in eating wings. You have to use your hands and sauce splatters everywhere as you tear the meat from the bone. At Wings Over Arlington, such primal behavior is not only accepted, it's encouraged. Fresh, hand-battered wings arrive hot from the kitchen wearing any of 24 sauces, including five varieties of buffalo sauce, rated from the mild 'wimpy' sauce to the 'after burner,' which requires a respectful salute of acknowledgement before consumption. Those who prefer a less saucy experience can go for buffalo-chicken sandwiches slathered in creamy bleu cheese, or wings prepared with dry rubs such as West Texas mesquite.
