Riverhead's Best: Wings

Wings are more than appetizers; they are bone-sucking goodness. Which joint makes the best? Time to weigh in.

Do you like them crispy or naked? Hot and spicy or lip-smacking sweet? We’re talking wings, of course.

Each Monday we’ll list our nominees – this week it’s wings – and ask for your recommendation. Did we leave your go-to spot off the list? Go ahead and add it in comments.

Wednesday we’ll narrow the field, taking your recommendations to put to a vote in the ultimate food-fight poll.

Friday afternoon we’ll announce a winner.

Spicy's has been the best for years!!

I think Jerry and the Mermaid should be a nominee, even though they are a seafood establishment, they sell chicken wings by the boatload and likely have the most popular wings in town. They are prepared deep fried but in a sweet soy sauce and can be mild, medium or hot, they are pretty awesome.

Jerry and the Mermaids have the best wings. Meaty, crunchy and a terrific sweet, yet tangy, sauce. Their temps are spot on. Served with blue cheese dessing and celery.

Mary R February 20, 2012 at 11:17 PM
