Ferg's Sports Bar
Located right across the street from Tropicana Field, Ferg’s is a very popular spot in downtown St Petersburg! This sports bar takes up nearly two city blocks and has enough TVs that almost everyone can have their own… (we’re talking over 90 TVs). Named by CNN as one of the Top 101 Sports Bars in the country, if you haven’t been then you’re missing out!
Not only do they have the location but their menu is amazing! They offer every style of wing you can think of and then some. We recommend the Blackened & Hot Teriyaki Combo from their fusion sauces. Yum!
The Blind Goat is a wonderful neighborhood bar in South Tampa with great happy hour, refreshing beer, bar games and insanely delicious wings!
Their wings are oven baked, rather than fried, but they couldn’t be any crispier, juicier, or more delicious! Indulge in flavors like classic buffalo, Thai sweet & spicy, blackened dry rub, garlic parm, pooty tang…the list goes on. If you’re in the mood for something a little unique you NEED to order Feisty C’s PB&J wings, trust us! And if you’re daring and want something scorching hot get the Vision Quest.

Tampa Bay Brewing Co.
There’s just something about a beer and wings that make so much sense. Whether you’re visiting the Ybor or Westchase location you have to try the Red Eye Cider wings! TBBC tosses a POUND of wings in their Red Eye Cider Wing Sauce with a choice of ranch or bleu cheese dressing. We 10/10 recommend these to a friend…. and we’re friends!
The Anchor Bar
Next time you’re downtown and looking for a low key bar to hole up in, then you need to walk over to The Anchor Bar. Do you like drums or flats more?

The wings at The Anchor Bar are a long time favorite of the Downtown Tampa locals, the perfect snack to watch a game with.
We love how many sauces and seasonings they offer as well! It’s awesome that they offer dry rubs, it’s a great change from the usual saucey wings. Their cajun dry rub just happens to be the perfect mix of spicy and smokey!
Next time you’re in Ybor City be sure to stop by The Boneyard to try their wings! The slogan is “Dive Bar. Mean Wings.” and they’re not lying. This relaxed Ybor staple has TVs, pool tables, music, and. a wide selection at the bar! We recommend the Salt & Pepper or Bad Dog sauces because they’re 1. delicious and 2. only found here!
