Chicken wings

Friday, July 29th, is National Chicken Wing day. In preparation, we have been polling our Hot 96.9 listeners for the past two weeks and doing a lot of research to find out who indeed makes the best chicken wings in and around the city. We got dozens of entries. When it comes to why people chose what they chose, it came down to flavor, crispiness, sauces, juiciness and more. Now we didn’t specify on the bone or boneless. We left that up to you all. Regardless of each of these responses, we all know chicken wings are the perfect bar food. They’re perfect for watching sports.
There are also various restaurants and fast food places that are offering freebies on this National Chicken Wing Day. To view those places, CLICK HERE
Before we get to the actual list. The Getup Crew and Hot 96.9 are not responsible for whatever fighting and arguments that may come from this list. This list was compiled by YOU, the consumers. We love you all and appreciate you taking the time out to vote on your favorites. If your favorite was left off, it was simply because you didn’t give a reason or maybe your suggestion was given after the deadline. So, without further ado, here is the list of the BEST CHICKEN WINGS IN AND AROUND BOSTON voted on by YOU.
