Recommendations/Planning ahead

Ok, I am going to start a list of places to try wings, places I'd like to go or places people told me about, if I don't write them down I'd never remember them all.

Feel free to leave any comments if you've tried any or add new places for me to try, the list will surely grow but I'll do my best to try them all.

- Fickle Frog
- Mexicali Rosa's (wings have changed since the last review)
- Tom's Little Havana

- Prospectors' (Bedford)

- Waverly Legion
- Armdale Market (St. Margaret's Bay)

- The Hub II (Dartmouth)
- Ship Victory (Dartmouth)
- Hungry Hutt (Dartmouth)
- Millstone Public House (Dartmouth)
- Downeast Beer Factory (Dartmouth)

- Cole's (Cole Harbour)
- Porters Lake Pub
- Cicero's on the Water (Porters Lake, not sure if they still sell wings)
- El Centro Pizza (Lawrencetown)

- Tom's Family Restaurant (Sackville)

- Pizzadelic
- Pizza Girls

- Pine Grove Golf Course
- Grandview
- Brightwood Gold and Country Club
- Lingan Golf course - Cape Breton
- Cocoa Pesto (Windsor)

I'll add to this as I think of more, but as I've mentioned, please add any place you think has good wings.

  4. I wouldn't waste your time with Oasis wings. They are small, not breaded and the sauce selection/quality is lacking. I haven't been there in awhile though so they might have changed things.

    Alehouse wings are comparable to Pogue wings. They used to have a special 10 wings and a pitcher of beer for 13 bucks. Again, I haven't had them in awhile either. I've pretty much settled on the Pogue for the best wings in Halifax. Everywhere else pales in comparison.

    What are your thoughts on unnecessarily hot wings? I'd like to find out where the hottest wings in the city are and try them out. I'm thinking its the death wings at Bubba's.

    1. I will say that the simply insane wings from HFX Sports bar are in the suicide category... Seriously. I haven't found the courage to try Death at bubba rays yet, but their suicide was extremely mild compared to the Simply Insane at HFX Sports bar. Alehouse and HFX sports bar (Same owners) are my absolute two favorite spots for wings in this great city... But I don't think I can handle the simply insane ever again, and I usually get hot @ alehouse.

  5. Hey Nick,

    Thanks for the suggestions. It has also been a while since I’ve been to the Oasis too, not on the top of my list but I’m sure I’ll be giving their wings a try again sometime, maybe in the summer, it is in a great location.

    I haven’t been to the Alehouse in probably 6 or 7 years for wings, I am looking forward to going back and I plan on doing pretty soon, especially if you say they’re comparable to Pogue wings. And I agree 100% that the Pogue wings are the best in Halifax. At this point, it feels like I’ll never find anywhere with better wings, but I will always keep looking.

    I really enjoy spicy/hot wings with good flavor. I wouldn’t be able to eat unnecessarily hot wings every wing night, but I think it would be a good idea to get a group of people wanting to try some crazy hot wings at Bubba Ray’s just to try it out, they do have the best selection of sauces that I’ve ever seen. If you get a chance to try them before I do, let me know how it goes. I have a feeling that it would require large amounts of beer to go with them, lol.

    1. The hottest sauce I have tried is the suicide sauce at Jungle Jim's (although the wings aren't the best).

      Delete
    2. Hey Brison,

      If you enjoy a really hot sauce you should try the Death Sauce at Bubba Ray's sometime. I've never tried it but I heard it's pretty intense. I still have to try the wings at Jungle Jim's sometime soon, but I've also heard they're not too good.

      Delete
    3. I think you have to sign a waver to try the death wings at Bubba's.

      Delete
    4. I heard that too, for some reason it just doesn't sound like an enjoyable experience, lol.

      Delete
    5. I tried the death sauce last night at Bubba Ray's. The menu DOES say you have to sign a waiver, but one wasn't presented, so it must be a joke.

      It was intensely hot. I like really hot, spicy food. 15 thai chilis in a dish, no problem, love it. This was all kinds of burning heat that intensified in the mouth, numbing your tongue causing tears. Not very pleasant.

      But what bothered me more than the heat level was the taste. It tasted awful, clinical, like an anesthetic, like having a tooth filled at the dentist.

      Much enjoyed the suicide sauce though, especially with the lingering burn from the death sauce making the suicide seem even spicier.

      Delete
    6. Having drank a cup of death sauce on a dare...well, a few cups, and as a regular customer of it, I don't think it's unnecessarily hot. Get a cup of death sauce on the side, with some Dragon wings and you're all set! The death sauce is definitely hotter than Jungle Jims insanity though.

      Delete
  6. Wingman extroadinaraire... I need your help. I now live on the Darkside and appreciate your reviews of our wing spots on this side of the harbour. Thanks for that.

    I also agree the best wings that I've had so far come from the Pogue, they are cheap, delicious and there are enough sauces to choose from to make it interesting each time.

    I am however a food snob, and as much as I enjoy having a good feed of breaded wings, they would not be my first choice. I expect Bubba's might do a naked wing but I don't know of any others. What I seek is a place that does fresh wings, deep fried without the crust... I want 'em meaty and tasty.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Glad to hear you feel the same way about the Pogue, the wings there are incredible. I'm still on the hunt to find a place with better wings.

    I'm a fan of the breaded wings personally however, the only place I've seen so far with non breaded wings was Porter's on Portland St, and if you seen the review I wrote on that place, I really would not recommend them at all.

    Next wing night will probably be some place in Dartmouth again, I'll let ya know if I'm able to find a place with fresh, delicious non breaded wings.

    Let me know if you find a place before I do, I'd be sure to try them.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The Alehouse has the best wings in town. Try them with their suicide sauce!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I know you prefer breaded, fried and sauce on the side. But if you are willing to try some amazing naked, baked, with sauce on wings, Tom's Little Havana has AMAZING wings of that variety.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I've heard of that place before. Different style of wings than I'm used to but I'd love to try them. The last place I tried naked wings was at Porter's and that left a raw taste in mouth. I'll be sure to try them at Tom's Little Havana next time. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wingman! You gotta try Neighbor's Pub on Portland (near the bottle depot) for wings. I'm a fan of outrageously hot wings, so i really like their 'suicide' wings. But I read all your reviews and noticed you don't often opt for the hottest option - they have some less spicy picks as well :) Probably the best wings I've ever had, still being a minor at this point I can't go to bars for wings.

    Definitely put Neighbor's on your ASAP list though, the wings are outstanding.

    Also, they have a HALF PRICE mexican night (I think its thursday). The mexican there is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

    Enjoy,
    Kyle.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thanks Kyle. I have heard of that place and I will have to try their wings soon. And you're right, I don't always go for the hottest options when it comes to sauces but if you like your wings really hot, you'll have to try the hottest wings Bubba Ray's offers, I've never had them but I have heard stories, apparently they are pretty intense.

  13. Hey Wingman!!!

    Try the wings at Lake Loon Bar in Cole Harbour off Main St. Great wings!!! I'm there every week!! The best waitress is Angela, good food, great service!!! It's a MUST TRY for you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's really good to hear, thanks. I'll look forward to trying the wings in the spring right after I finish my first round at the driving range. I'm really looking forward to both, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I couldnt find it on your list so I'm going to recommend Porters Lake Pub. they are dead everyday of the week in there....except for Thursdays..i.e wing night. I've had a lot of wings in a lot of places but the PLP wings get my vote everytime.

    1. That's good to hear, thanks. They have been added to my "Planning Ahead" list and I'm sure you'll hear about it once I have the chance to try them.

  16. i can tell you where not to get delivery wings, the ones from alexandra's are always over cooked, though for smoe reason i love greco wings the sauce is amazing, maybe thats it....

    ReplyDelete
  17. I did have order wings from Alexandras once, I wasn't impressed at all. I tried Greco wings also, I must have had a bad batch, they didn't look too good. I have a pic of them on Twitter somewhere.

  18. Wingman....I am your latest fan. I love suicide wings and have won many contest over the years. I am so happy to have stumbled onto your site as i was getting tired of the poor job the "Coast" was doing when it came to discussing wings and where to get them. Finding all this new info feels like Christmas to me.....where do I start? Thanks so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey,

    Thanks. I enjoy a good spice, but nothing over the top. Where have you won contest's at? I heard the death sauce is pretty intense at Bubba Ray's, have you tried that? I know the Q is currently having a hot wing contents, I plan on going there soon with a buddy of mine, he says he can do it.

    I'm glad you enjoy the site. Now, as for where to start, if you're looking for the best wings in Halifax than you have to go to the Pogue, let me know what you think of the wings there. The Halifax Alehouse also has amazing wings in Halifax. Be sure to check out Winston's if you're in the Clayton Park/Fairview area and if you go out for wings in Dartmouth, you have to try Pilot's Pub, they're incredible, get the dry Cajun on. The Celtic Corner and Jacob's also have great wings. Keep me updated if you try any of those places or if you try other places that I haven't been to yet.

    Thanks again,

    Halifax Wingman

  20. Yo Wingman,

    I wouldn't bother with Neighbour's if you haven't gone there already. Apparently the wings are award winning, but I believe you would fail them pretty hard. They're small, sauce selection is small and generic, and they're not the tastiest I've ever had. Just a heads up.

  21. Hey Wingman,

    Just went to wings last night at brewdebakers. 10 sauces to choose from. I tried the apple butter bbq and the hottest ones they had. Hot ones were barely "hot" but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the apple butter bbq was AMAZING. 45c/wing on wednesdays :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey Kyle, that's good to hear about the apple butter bbq, I have to try that for sure. How did you find the actual wings? I went back a couple of weeks ago and I found they were still pretty good.

  23. Hi Wingman, For a great tasting wing and homemade sauces...I invite you to check out The Wing Wagon Take-out at 474 Cobequid Road, in Lower Sackville.....I have heard that they are right up there with the best in the city!

  28. Outta curiosity, why don't you like dark meat?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well I don't mind dark meat but my problem is that chicken wings are technically white meat so they really shouldn't contain any dark meat at all. If you have a chance to look through some previous posts you'll find a few pics where the meat just looks really disgusting.

    1. That could make a great snack after a round of golf if it ever gets sunny around here, but I believe you need to be a member in order to do that. Do you know if non-members can just go in and get some wings? It really sounds like I need to try them now.

  40. Hey Wingman,

    I used to live in halifax, but am in St. John's now. I've been hitting up a place here called wing-N-It.

    WHen ever my clients come from halifax we always go there. Its hard to beat the selection of sauces. About 100 Flavors. http://www.wingnit.ca/wing-flavours/. They tell me they are opening up a store in Halifax. So keep your fingers crossed for when they get there.

    great site.

  42. Any Pizza Hut, I am completely serious too. It is called "wing street" and it is located in every pizze hut. I order the spicy BBQ and the garlic parmesan ones, BONE OUT. And always ask for extra sauce on them! They are my favorite wings in the world! Along with Don Cherry's ultimate sauce wings.
