    The best wings are the Maple Buffalo Wings at Egan and Sons in Montclair. Just hot enough to be spicy, and the maple syrup gives an amazing flavor. Excellent blue cheese on the side. Good sized portions.

    The Court Jester in Aberdeen has the best wings. They also have a wide selection of craft beers to wash them down.

    Charlies Bar in Somers Point by far has the best Hot Wings. Rather than discuss it, come on by and try them for yourself. Let your own taste buds be the judge.

    Try the Cee Vue Inn in Cape May. The wings are, by far, the best….. better than PJ’s, Picalilli, Jug Handle and others mentioned above. I have had them numerous times and have never been disappointed. PJ’s chipotle lime wings are my second favorite followed by the smoked porter wings at the Pour House in Westmont.

    Mickey’s Bar & Grill in Lyndhurst NJ has the best wings in Bergen County by far!
