Quest For Wings

So I’m writing a series on Regina’s greatest chicken wings. But with my advanced age (the square root of 39 squared)* comes my advanced humility. I know only enough to know that I know very little indeed.

For example, chicken wings. And where they are. Where are they?

I’m looking for Regina’s best chicken wing joints to review. And prairie dog readers are not only book-smart — they’re wing-smart.

Tell me, pd readers: where should I go for chicken wings? What would you like to see in my next review? If you suggest a place and I love it, you will receive a photo of me holding a chicken wing and looking pleased.

It will look something like this, but with a chicken wing involved.

So far I’ve visited or intend to visit the following locations:

Fireside Bistro
Bushwakker’s Brewing Co. Ltd.
4 Seasons
Bonzzini’s Brew Pub
Press Box
Johnny Fox’s Pub

Any essentials I’m missing out on? Any crazy unique wings out there? Unbelievably good cheap wing-night wings? Let me know in the comments!

*I know all the math that there is to know, which allows to me get all fancy with numbers.

  1. The Hub has good ones. I’ve heard The Pump’s are alright as well.

  2. Hey!

    The cheapest wing night in town is at Cravings in the East end behind Earls on Thursdays!
    I cant even recall how much they were because I think I paid in change they were so cheap

  3. I haven’t been to Chili’s in Regina but the one at the Calgary airport has boneless wings, something to mix the wing eating up a bit perhaps?

  4. Just be sure you tried the breaded wings at Press Box. You can get them regular or breaded. Those are definitely my favorite in the city so far. $.35/wing on Wednesdays and Sundays and they’re huge.

  5. The honey garlic wings at Bushwakker taste kind of fishy (I know! Weird!) but it’s interesting to note that they use actual real garlic. Like, chunks of garlic. Maybe I am used to the fake honey garlic sauce others use?

  6. Do they need to be American style? Or do they just need to be that portion of the bird? Afghan Cuisine if it’s the latter.

  7. Barley Mill….Wednesday Wing night, a north -west Regina long time favourite, .25 a piece, lots of flavours

  8. I would like to see in your review who has the hottest wing sauce out there in Regina.

  9. There’s no place in town that can compare to my own chili-teryaki wings (based on an old Keg version when they still made their own scratch sauces)…nor does anyone do crispy buffalo wings properly/consistently a la Alton Brown’s recipe from the food network. Both are relatively easy however no one in town seems to realize how much extra business REALLY good wings can bring in. The Regal Begal in Calgary made a fortune just selling wings, ribs and beer when I lived there (and still do). So if you’re interested, I’ll serve you up my two versions of wings, and then you can tell me if anyone in the city comes close. And as an added bonus, I’ll be willing to offer up my recipes (moreso, technique…the recipes are easily enough found) to any restaurant that will add them to their menu (providing they are interested in scratch sauce preparation and a commitment to consistency) just so I can go somewhere for incredible wings myself! Let me know.

  10. Try the “hot & dry” wings at Fibber Magees (Fridays(?)), the lemon pepper at Broken Rack (Monday’s), and the chili lime at Bonzinni’s (Tuesday’s).

  11. The Broken Rack in the Golden Mile has the best wings in town. Sunday and Monday are cheap wing nights.

  12. What I want to know is, when are they going to start selling the whole wing instead of cutting wings in half? Deceptive advertising, when you get down to it.

  13. The greek style ones at some of the Western Pizza locations are really good. I can’t remember which locations though…. even though they all share the same basic menu they all do things a little differently.

  14. The Hub by far…check out their wing night on Tuesday…salt and pepper are great and sweet with heat

  15. Original joes on Monday and earls on Wednesdays, both amazing! Oj’s has more flavour choices however!

  16. Barley Mill on Rochdale…it’s packed every Wednesday….that’s gotta say something about the wings…..BEST IN TOWN….guaranteed!
