The Buffalo chicken wing is about as American as apple pie.  Grab a fat pile of napkins and an ice-cold bee, because we’re taking you to three of the best Buffalo wing restaurants across America.

1. Booty’s Wings, Burgers & Beer – Surprise, Arizona

Let's start in Surprise, Arizona at Booty's Wings, Burgers and Beer. Owner Andy Libutti opened his shrine to hot wings in 2012, and has since won 12 awards at the National Buffalo Wing Festival – including the Festival Favorite grand prize in 2017. His consistent winner is the Traditional Medium Buffalo Wing. He's also created some other unique, award-winning recipes – like Buffalo Chipotle Garlic, Caesar Fire, and Desert Sweet Heat. The restaurant boasts over 40 different flavors, which we bet are all finger-lickin’ good!

2. J.R. Crickets – Atlanta, Georgia

After your mouth cools down, head down south to Atlanta, Georgia. J.R. Crickets has been around for 35 years, and has been voted “Best Wings in Georgia”. Their legendary Lemon Pepper Wet Style was even featured in the TV series Atlanta. J.R. Crickets has locations all over Georgia, and if you can't make it to the restaurant, you can buy their sauces online. Can someone please rush ship us an order?!

3. Anchor Bar – Buffalo, New York

Let's wrap up our tour of spicy goodness in Buffalo, New York at Anchor Bar – the home of the Buffalo wing phenomenon! In 1964, Teressa Bellissimo created the now famous Buffalo wing when a hungry late-night crowd stumbled into her bar. She normally tossed chicken wings in a stock pot for soup. Instead, she deep fried and flavored them with a secret sauce – which rewrote chicken wing history ever since! Anchor Bar is a winner of the James Beard Foundation award, along with many other medals for contests held around the country.
