Chicken Wings

“Whether it’s Wingettes, Tips, Drumettes or Flats, Columbus is a melting pot for different varieties of chicken wings. While some pay homage to traditional buffalo roots, others traverse wildly new paths unique to their own cooking style and flavors. Check it out, as we break down (and grub on) the Top Six Best Chicken Wing spots in the city.”

 #6  O’Reillys – “Best Hidden Wing”

It’s really difficult to have a breaded, fried wing that holds flavor and is still juicy as hell, but O’Reilly’s kitchen wizardry somehow pulls it all off.

O’Reilly’s is an extremely chill, hole-in-the-wall spot that serves as a casual neighborhood hangout for many locals. Seriously, their off the grid location sits quietly on the corner of Olentangy St. and High St. at the start of Clintonville. It’s literally a spot you’ve passed a thousand times, but never realized a restaurant sits there.

While their storefront may be a little quiet, their wing game is certainly not. It’s difficult to describe, but it’s a working class, blue-collar kinda wing – hearty in size, full of flavor, great for the price, and tastes good as hell. Not to be overlooked, they also feature the standard selection of sauces and execute each to perfection.

If you feel like stepping away from your standard restaurant selections, you can’t go wrong with a 12-spot of chicken wings from O’Reilly’s…and make sure you get a little “Scott’s Style” sauce on the side.

Tastebuds614 is a purely, scientific algorithm forged from a mixture of stale craft beer, cold pizza crust, dad jokes, and heavy naps on the couch. When we find time away from our normal 9 to 5 jobs, we often leave the house in droves, storming nearby restaurants and liquidating them of their chicken wings and blue cheese dressing. We often find ourselves in comatose while watching Chopped and Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives for hours on end - not knowing how we got there. We can hurl pizza crusts at small moving objects with deadly accuracy, and while on vacation in Canada, we successfully negotiated with a group of burglars who had seized a small bakery.
