Clare & Don’s Beach Shack

The tell-tale char marks on Clare & Don’s wings is a sure sign that this isn’t your regular deep-fried chicken. The unbreaded wings are first lightly fried and then finished up on the grill which makes for some delightfully light and crispy skin. You can dress them up in any of C&D’s five sauces including the traditional Buffalo and Sweet & Spicy Mango. CHEAP WING ALERT: From 8 – 11 p.m. on Wednesdays, get them on the cheap for 50 cents each.

Dogwood Tavern

132 West Broad Street • dogwoodtavern.com

The wings don’t touch the grill at Dogwood, instead opting for a full on dip in the fryer. These chunky, breaded suckers come in two options on the menu, Honey Pepper and Buffalo, but if you ask real nice, they might hook you up with a house favorite blend of BBQ mixed with buffalo sauce. CHEAP WING ALERT: On Monday from 5 until midnight, grab Dogwood’s wings for just 50 cents (six minimum, no max!).

Famous Dave’s

A word of caution: don’t bring a weak tolerance for heat if you decide to go spicy at Famous Dave’s. While you can take it easy with their Rich & Sassy and Buffalo sauces, you’ll start to feel the heat with the Devil’s Spit and Pineapple Rage. But prepare to break out the napkins if you take on Wilbur’s Revenge. Those blazing bundles of chicken and bone will leave you mopping the sweat off your forehead long after you’ve finished eating.

If you opt for the wings at the Four P’s, don’t plan on eating anything else anytime soon– these are some downright massive hunks of fried chicken. The crispiest of the crispy, the wings come plain, but you can ask them to toss ‘em in tangy Texas Pete Hot Sauce or choose the to do-it-youself route and use the supplied sauce as a dip. CHEAP WING ALERT: On the Happy Hour menu, from 3:30 – 7 p.m., Monday-Friday, wings are just $4.95.

Mad Fox brings more breaded wings to the plates of Falls Church diners and, while not as thick a batter as some of F.C.’s others, they still pack a good crunch. So much so, it’s in their name: “Seriously Crispy Wings.” The wings and drumettes come dressed in either a Spicy Wing sauce or with Mad Fox’s own Wee Heavy Ginger glaze.
