When it comes to sauce innovation, J Wings definitely takes the crown. They have over 30 flavors of wings, so there is something for everyone.  If you’re feeling adventurous, order the wings with “Swag” sauce. Fans of lemon pepper and garlic pepper will be hooked. 

3. EastWest

The West Wings at EastWest are honestly in a league of their own. Smoked then fried, they give the perfect texture. They are then coated with yum-yum and ssamjang hot sauce for the perfect Asian fusion blend.

Oh, and another thing…on Wednesdays, these wings are half off. It’s dine-in only, so make sure you plan accordingly.

Soho Social is one of the most well-rounded restaurants in Birmingham. With that said, it’s no surprise their Tallulah wings pack a powerful punch in flavor. They literally ignited my taste buds. These wings are marinated in coca-cola, smoked, and then flash-fried to perfection.

You also have the option to add some of their specialty sauces such as smoked bourbon chipotle and white bbq sauce, or you can do the dry rub. Either way, your tummy will thank you later.

When it comes to wing flavors, my personal favorite is hot lemon-pepper.  I’m sure I’m not alone when I say the combination is unmatched. Wings R King is one of my favorite places for this wing choice, and they have plenty of locations throughout Birmingham.

Never had this flavor combo before? Warning—they are addictive.
