Ain’t no thang but a chicken wang, it’s true! We sure do love taking a big bite out of a “comes right of the bone” wing, and luckily we also know all the places you can do the same! No this isn’t a list of all the chain restaurants where you can get some bar grub. These are local establishments perfect to take some out-of-town fam and friends to, and give them a newfound love for chicken wings. Check out our top 5 spots for the best batch of chicken wings in Austin!
Ever heard of a chicken lollipop? You have now! Tommy Want Wingy is the best place in town to eat chicken wings that don’t look like your normal chicken wings. These carefully crafted wings are served lollipop style, which makes them super easy to bite into.
There’s a catch, though. If you go for one of their spicier flavors, your mouth will truly be on fire! This is definitely the place for you if you can handle the heat, but they also have mild flavors for everyone else. Not to mention, they serve Parmesan garlic fries and they are so good! They’re located at Cosmic Coffee, and conveniently on Rainey Street. You don’t need any other late night snack when you have wings and fries.
Black Sheep Lodge is more than just a sports bar, they also happen to have some of the best wings in town!
Go on down south to this neighborhood bar and get you some delicious grub. They have 26 beers on tap, over 125 bottled beers, awesome burgers, and even better wings. Their flavors change weekly, and they’ll even get you some fried ones.
If you’re all for saving the animals, we got you! Project Pollo has some dang good wings, and they’re all vegan!
Yep, these chicken wings are all vegetarian. The 5 crispy wings are made with soy protein and served with their signature spicy garlic buffalo sauce served with ranch, or their house made creamy garlic parm served with buffalo. Their wings are only available on Wednesdays.

An East Austin staple, you’ve most likely already been to Spicy Boys! If so, you know exactly why they’re in our top 5.
Spicy Boys, contrary to their name, isn’t that spicy. But for some, it might be! They serve two kinds of wings. There are boneless and cauliflower wing options. But let’s get real, we are going here for the chicken! Their fried wings are not only coated with their signature seasoning but can also be drenched in 4 Asian-inspired sauces. Check them out if you have not yet!
So you may think why we would include a chain restaurant in this list, but Pluckers actually originated in Austin!
If you want some big wings, this is the spot to go. Especially if you love sports seeing as they have so many TVs showing games all over. From 5 piece meals to 100 piece spreads, Pluckers sends home happy groups. You can opt for bone-in or boneless, and choose from one of their many, many flavors.
