Brisbane's best wings
Whether they're classic, saucy, spicy or Korean, the term ‘finger-lickin' good’ is no longer confined to KFC buckets that double as helmets.
Now, there are plenty of spots not just wingin’ it, but getting our sticky, saucy, crispy favourite down to an edible (and delectable) art form. We’ve rounded up Brisbane’s best wings for a list that’s sure to ruffle your feathers!
RED HOOK BRISBANE | CBD
New York street food specialists Red Hook is serving up wings dipped in batter and fried to absolute perfection. There’s no need to carry extra hot sauce in your bag either! Red Hook serves up not one, not two, but four saucy flavours, including buffalo, hickory, F*** U Hot, and the signature Red Hook glaze. Drop in on Wednesdays after 6 pm for $1 wings.
TIPPLER’S TAP | SOUTHBANK & FORTITUDE VALLEY
Tippler’s Tap is a Brisbane craft beer institution, and what better way to wash down your dry spiced-rub wings than with a deliciously hoppy ale. Need something hotter to tickle your senses? Tippler’s has a rotating selection of hot sauces sure to get your blood pumping! Drop in on Sundays for a $20 kilogram of wings. Yes, please!
SEOUL BISTRO | SUNNYBANK
Sure, buffalo wings might be the forte of the States, but Seoul Bistro is definitely giving them a run for their money with their Korean-inspired crispy chicken wings! For a unique fried chook experience, we suggest opting for either the yang nyum (sweet ‘n’ spicy) or honey wasabi wings paired with kimchi fries. For a real belt loosener, check out the $21.90 fried chicken buffet for unlimited wings in nine flavours, fries, garlic bread and lemon iced tea. So many yums!
BIG RODDY’S RIPPIN’ RIB SHACK | SOUTH BRISBANE & FORTITUDE VALLEY
From humble market stall beginnings to the start of a rib empire, Big Roddy’s is the result of two best mates’ hard work and love for American-style food. With a strong belief in accountability, the boys make sure to source their meat and produce only from ethical, sustainable farmers. Whilst the ribs may be the centre of attention at Roddy’s, their buffalo wings are the stuff of dreams. Classic, crunchy, spicy, and $1 each all day Wednesday. Need we say more?
WINGHAÜS | CBD
Listen up, chickens, WingHAÜS is an American sports bar/Bavarian beerhall whose crunchy wings can’t be beat. Head in to score their crunchy buffalo wings served in everything from traditional hot sauce to teriyaki or Texas BBQ. WingHAÜS has got your weekday blues covered, serving up 50c wings Monday to Friday from 5 until 7.
KING OF THE WINGS | STAFFORD
Internationally awarded Brisbane food truck, King of the Wings has established its flagship store in Stafford. Offering their acclaimed wings along with smokey ribs, ice-cold beers, and delicious cocktails. The gang has five wing flavours to choose from including our personal favourite: the Bee Sting, a honey sesame sensation with a sweet chilli kick. There’s a reason they’re the king.
SHADY PALMS | STONES CORNER
Shady Palms doesn’t just have a mean breakfast menu complete with a comfy couch to eat it from, they also do some darn good wings that go down all too well with an ice-cold beer. Dig into their chicken wings, which come Korean spiced or chipotle and maple, served with blue cheese sauce. Nothing shady here.
THE BURROW | WEST END
Perhaps you can resist their amazing pizzas, but The Burrow’s wings simply can’t be ignored! Fly in today to wrap your fingers around these golden double fried buttermilk wings, tossed in hot sauce butter and served with your choice of blue cheese, farmhouse ranch or bourbon BBQ dipping sauce. You will not regret it.
You’re going to need some extra napkins!
