Chicken wings have become a staple at nearly every sporting event imaginable, much like good friend pizza. The Buffalo wing didn’t become a favorite on every good sports bar menu until the mid-1980s. Anchor Bar (RIP location at the Venetian) started the sensation back in 1964 when owner Teressa Bellissimo created the sauce in Buffalo, New York. Now find spicy Korean and Chinese versions as well as super hot renditions that will have you begging for a glass of milk. Here, find a look at some of the local restaurants that specialize in tasty chicken wings.
