Who's got Kickin' Wings?

Rick's Hotwings 3103 Cobb Pkwy NW Kennesaw, GA 30152 (678) 453-4343
Great lemon-pepper and hot.

Da Bomb Wings & Seafood 250 Auburn Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30303 (404) 681-5513
Sketchy location just around the corner from Harlem Bar with limited seating and a serious takeout/delivery business. They have a ga-jillion flavors and the wings are meaty and juicy Don't go for the ambience, go when you need a late nite fix or better yet, have them delivered!

Publix various locations around the city
wow..who knew a grocery store deli could turn out some of the most delish wings you've ever the mardi gras and lemon pepper

Famous Yardbird 1025 E West Connector, Austell, GA 30106 (678) 556-0161 the wings are a meal, not a drinking snack. Tater tots are and you gotta have the Slices of Texas toast

Buffalo China: 1145 Glenwood Ave., 404-622-8888 (multiple locations). Crisp-saucy "braised" wings with fried rice is the tasty signature at this wings-n-Chinese joint. Sketchy location with lots of panhandlers...

Coco Loco Cuban & Caribbean Cafe: 2625 Piedmont Rd. (Buckhead Crossing Mall), 404-364-0212,
Lemon/garlic/mojo marinated wings find a nice foil in soft, tangy onion rings at this popular Buckhead old-timer.

Wild Wing Cafe 2145 Roswell Road Marietta 770-509-9464
This sports bar has a family-friendly dining room, plus three bars — one smoking, one nonsmoking, and an expanded, grass-covered outdoor tiki bar with a beach theme.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q: 1238 DeKalb Ave., 404-577-4030,
Lip-tingling spices and sweet smoke earn these hot little suckers best in show for barbecue.

J.R. Crickets: 631 Spring St., 404-881-1950, locations). Carefully honed dive-bar atmosphere makes you crave a beer. Small, crispy-bitted wings, chunky homemade blue cheese dressing and a fistful of celery are always just right if not memorable. If you climb the stairs, don't let your eyes dwell on the archaeology of gum beneath the mezzanine-level tables.

LT's Wings & Other Things: 1160 Fairburn Rd., 404-349-0006. (multiple locations) A stopover for commuters who call ahead and pick up boxes of wings, each with a baggie of celery sticks and baby carrots. If you eat on premises, the friendly owners will set up a picnic table on the patio.

Sgt. Phifer's Wings and Fries: 124 Spring St., 678-886-0556.
Sit on the rickety patio. The wings and fries are fine. And remember... Hot here is hot.

Shane's Rib Shack: 1221 Caroline St., 404-525-7427, (multiple locations). Not too crisp, not too smoky. But, hey, they're ready fast.

Taco Mac: 573 Main St. (in Lindbergh City Center) 404-574-5813, (multiple locations). We know everybody loves these hometown wings, but we thought the skin was just too soft. Then again, after sampling the exhaustive beer list, we didn't mind the flimsiness so much after all.

Wing Ranch: 1154 Lawrenceville Hwy., Lawrenceville. 678-225-0750, (multiple locations). Give us a home where wingless chickens roam: This Western-themed spot serves up a fine passel of flavors (garlic Parmesan or lime-pepper, anyone?) in a spit-shined strip-mall dude ranch.
