The best damn wings in Dallas

Delicious Buffalo wings

With the exception of Jessica Simpson, pretty much everyone in Dallas knows where they can find a good chicken wing. In the ocean, right? But at which eight spots can you find the best ones? You know, like the ones that come with Point Reyes blue fondue or are stuffed with crazy stuff and fried?

Get the superhots with ranch if you HATE AMERICA, or stick with their blue cheese and chase everything down with Dallas Blonde.

You wouldn't think an English pub filled with Jack the Ripper homages would be the type of place that'd have great wings, but you'd be WRONG, 'cause this place totally does, and they're accompanied by Point Reyes blue fondue.

It's always funny when restos use names like "Instant Death" to describe their wings, since you know they're not going to kill you. Or are they?!?! (They're not.)

Boneless wing? Bo-ring... unless (!) you're talking about a wing that's been de-boned, stuffed with spices and rice, then fried and served over a pool of chili sauce. Which this one totally is.

UP's formula's pretty simple: take some big-ass wings, fry 'em up, toss 'em in sauce, and serve 'em with cold beer downtown. It works. Also: doesn't it look like they're hugging??

Country-fried wings? Cheddar waffles? Maple syrup and ranch? So many questions! So many delicious answers, pictured up above.

Dallas's long-standing Packers-haven's got plenty of punch with their sweet red chili wings, even if they're not quite as hot as Kaepernick was when the Niners torched the Pack in the divisional round. Buuuuuuuuurn!

The good: classic, vinegary wings fried in nothing but pure canola oil at an off-TCU college bar. The bad: they'll never win a Super Bowl, and they like the Sabres. Shudder.
