Chicken Wings. Two words that are enough to send us on a crazed hunger-fueled frenzy. No matter where we’d find ourselves — even if we were surrounded by dozens of food options — we’ll always be willing to get our hands dirty over crispy, juicy and spicy wings.
Here are the best chicken wing joints around the Metro to satisfy your appetite!
Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings
Frankie’s chicken wings should be your go-to for affordable yet flavorful wings especially on your cheat days. They have a wide range of signature flavors, but a frequent favorite is undoubtedly the Garlic Parmesan which gives you a generous amount of cheese over a subtle hint of garlic. We recommend getting the boneless wings with rice for an easier eating experience!
Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings is the best place to go with your barkada to watch your favorite sports games over good food and great beer. You don’t even have to be conscious about getting your hands messy because their chicken wings are worth the sloppy consumption. They are “hand spun” with your choice of sauce or seasoning which will depend on the level of spiciness you can handle.
Order a Tablegating Sampler to share, or just get a huge plate of wings to fulfill your cravings.
What makes Wingstop rise above the rest would be their limited variety but uniqueness and great quality of flavors that make it much easier and quicker for you to decide on your favorite. They also take pride in the size of their wings — you might not notice right off the bat, but they claim to serve the biggest chicken wings in the country!
For first-timers, we recommend getting the Louisiana Rub, an herby and spicy dry rub that won’t set your tongue on fire, or the Garlic Parmesan.
As their brand name suggests, Flaming Wings is where you go to fearlessly try their selection of spicy wings. Their range of sauces are simple enough to understand and differentiate from one another which helps if you don’t want to accidentally burn your tongue from the unexpected kick. They also serve dipping sauces that combat the heat well, such as Blue Cheese and Ranch.
This beach-inspired restaurant provides the perfect atmosphere for your laid-back dates or barkada HOHOLs over delicious and satisfying comfort food. Sunrise Buckets elevates chicken wings and transforms them into something much different from what you’re used to, especially with their 14 different flavors.
But trust us when we say you can just have the Original wings and still be surprised by the flavor and juiciness that seems to seep through all the way from the skin to the meat. Their wings are so exceptionally crispy and buttery that we still can’t believe how affordable they are!
Blake’s Wings & Steaks
Blake’s Wings and Steaks delivers to you exactly what you ask for. The flavors for their chicken wings are so authentic and true to what they should be that it’s best for you to really know what your taste buds are willing to get themselves into. But whichever you end up choosing — whether it’s Garlic Parmesan, Buffalo, Sweet & Spicy, or BBQ — you’ll be met with something so enjoyable that you wouldn’t mind splurging for another helping.

Don’t be fooled by this small, unassuming restaurant hidden in the backstreets of Katipunan Avenue. B. Wings serves some of the best wings you could ever get to try, all at a student-friendly price! The names for their flavors are pretty creative that it’s difficult not to remember them on your next visit — flavors like the P-NOY (a sour, sinigang-like taste), or the B-NAY (barbeque-flavored).
For those unafraid to try out their spicy wings, we suggest getting the Black Mamba which is Mexican-inspired with a subtle cocoa taste. You’ll be surprised by how well spice, chocolate and chicken work together to please your taste buds!

For more bang for your buck, Wingman is the place to be. You don’t have to break the bank to get appetizing chicken wings that are packed with so much flavor whether you’re out on a lunch date or in need of food to accompany the alcohol.
There’s a variety of flavors to choose from ranging from the familiar to the unique, but you must get the Classic Buffalo Wings at least once with the corresponding spice level (medium, hot, apocalyptic, or inferno) that you can take! You’re sure to end up licking your fingers afterwards.
