Odds are you’ve tried Atomic Wings, or at least heard of them.Â But if you’re one of the few that hasn’t, you better find a location near you ASAP – preferably one that’s part of a bar like Blue Moon or Down the Hatch (they taste much better with beer).Â While they may be a little pricier than most wings, they’re definitely worth it…unless you’re really hungry and going for quantity vs quality.Â And this is coming from someone who doesn’t particularly like wings.Â Instead I opt for their quesadilla with chicken soaked in buffalo sauce or chicken tenders soaked in sauce.Â Both test my heat tolerance, but they’re so good that I don’t mind the pain.
Although you don’t have control over the spiciness of your buffalo soaked chicken quesadilla or chicken tenders, you do have a lot of control with your wings.Â You can choose from six buffalo sauces (mild, medium, hot, abusive, nuclear, suicidal), or you could go down a different route and try honey mustard, barbeque and jerk barbeque. No matter your taste preference, you’ll find a sauce and heat level for you.
(Warning…a friend and I tried their buffalo grilled chicken wrap at Blue Moon and we were both disappointed.Â So I wouldn’t recommend that.Â And while their nachos were okay, I was not a fan of the salsa.Â It had too much red onion in it and not enough tomatoes…but granted, I am picky with my salsa.)The Basics Name: Atomic Wings Location: There are several in Manhattan, check here for a location near you Who to take: Friends Price: Even a homeless man can afford it.Â $.
