Best Fast Food Wings

To some degree, we are in the golden age of quick food options. There are just so many choices out there from fast food and other made-to-order dining experiences. It doesn’t need to just be about burgers and fries these days. So when a hankering for chicken wings comes up, know that there are a bunch of great choices out there to explore.

Let’s take a look at the best wings options for grabbing a dozen (or more) on the go.


Domino’s is known for its pizza of course, but they like to keep the gameday options open on the menu. From that perspective, they have wings that come in all different assortments and flavors. Just some of the choices include the standard Hot Buffalo Wings as well as Honey BBQ, Sweet Mango Habanero, Spicy Jalapeño Pineapple, Sweet BBQ Bacon, and actually many more. There are a number of ways to go here, great for all different wing palettes. 

5. Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut has a dedicated wing brand called WingStreet though the options are featured on the standard menus. They have wings in the bone-in and boneless variety with all kinds of sauces. Those include Honey BBQ, Spicy Garlic, and Lemon Pepper. Like Domino’s, Pizza Hut pairs the wings with the slices in order to really cater to a party crowd. And the food does taste great. The wings rank up there with the best.

4. Zaxbys

Zaxby’s does all things chicken and this fast casual chain has become a fan favorite. For these wings know that you are mostly getting the boneless option, but they do the sauces right. There’s the Spicy Zak Sauce or the franchise’s Tongue Torch (read: hot!). They also have Teriyaki, Buffalo Garlic Glace, and Honey Mustard. When all you do is chicken, chicken wings get done right and that’s the case with Zaxby’s. 

3. Buffalo Wild Wings

Buffalo Wild Wings differs a bit from some of these other places for sure. For starters, their locations definitely want you to sit and stay awhile with full bars and tons of TVs to catch the games. But you can get chicken wings on the go as well and they’ve mastered this art for sure.

BWWs does bone-in or boneless and they boast 26 signature sauces.  Some examples include Original Buffalo, Hot, Caribbean Jerk, Asian Zing, Spicy Garlic, and Sweet Chile Lime.

2. Hooters

Dunder Mifflin’s Michael Scott had it right when he wanted to visit Hooter’s as much as humanly possible. There’s a certain je ne sais quoi to eating here that goes beyond just what’s put on the plates. But when it comes to the wings, well, Hooters does takeout here too.

They do all kinds of styles including their originals, smoked, roasted, naked, and even the trademarked Daytona Beach style. This plus all of the flavors and the sheer size of each wing make it one of the very best in the business. 

1. Wingstop

There are about 900 Wingstop locations spread throughout the United States and you’d be well served to go find one of them. They have sandwiches, but mostly you are going here for the wings and the wings only. The website has a wing calculator so you’ll know just how many to order and the flavors run the gamut. They have Original Hot, Lemon Pepper, Hickory Smoked BBQ, Atomic, and Mango Habanero among many others.
