    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.

    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.
