Best Wings/Cheesesteaks in Philadelphia

I just recently moved back to the area after living in Pittsburgh for the last 4 years for school. After eating at Quaker Steak and Lube (which has a pretty good wing, probably somewhere around an 8/10, which is great for a chain), I was wondering which wing places are the best around here.

When I was younger, my Dad played slow pitch softball and his team's sponsor was a bar in Bristol called O'Flaherty's Pub. They, by far, had the greatest wing I have ever had (they also had a very good cheesesteak to boot), 10/10 in my book. The wings were big, the sauce was great, and they were always cooked perfectly. But since then, the owner of the Pub passed away and now it's some sports bar (I think it's called "the Bar") and the wings are no where near as good as they used to be.

I also recently had wings at a place just across the Tacony Palmyra called the JugHandle Inn, which was suggested by a friend to have the best wings in the area. These wings were pretty small, the sauce was decent, but they fried the crap out of them. I do like somewhat crispy wings, but only when there's a lot of meat on them too. I'd probably give them a 5.5/10.

So, that being said, I'd be interested to learn about other's take on the subject and hear about other great wing places around Philly.

Churchville Pub . . . in . . . Churchville, PA

Meglio's in Newtown, PA

those two have my favorite wings in the area.

There are a bunch more solid additions. You won't get the flavor variety though, which is nice, I'm still out in Pittsburgh and love quaker steak . . . especially all you can eat on Tuesdays at the one in Robinson.

I've never gone to the Churchville Pub. I never would have thought they'd even have wings.

Yeah, for Quaker Steak, you have to go to the Robinson one. The Oakland one can be hit or miss.

Not to be a snob but as a Buffalo native I'm obligated to say that you've got to go to Buffalo to get the best Buffalo wings. It's not as bad as having a cheesesteak outside of Philly but you can definitely taste the difference.

I'm partial to Wings To Go, which has several area franchises.

Nothing beats their old early-90s commercial with the guy flapping his arms on the conference room table...

Thanks for the link!

The menu says the wings are gianormus. I hope they're not too big! The problem I have when wings are too big is, they may have a lot of meat yes, but they are almost too meaty in a way. These big wings usually don't pick up the batter well, nor do they hold the sauce as well. That and meatier wings usually means a lot more fatty, nasty parts too. There needs to be a good balance. The wings need to be a good size, yet the flavor needs to be able to last throughout the entire wing. When wings are too big, the latter usually doesn't happen.

But thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely look into going there.

Understandable. If I ever go to Buffalo, I'll be sure to find the best wing place.

Wings To Go was actually my first job ever. I washed dishes there when I was 14. I actually think their boneless wings are better than their regular ones.

The wings at North Third in the Northern Liberties are great.

My favorite wings are the wings at the Penn Valley Pub (if you go, ask for them plain with a side of hot sauce).

There is a Wings to Go in Broomall on Springfield Road if I'm not mistaken still.

Stadium Grille in West Chester has really good wings too.

It is probably a bit of a hike for most of you Pennsylvanians, but in Shamong, NJ there exists the mecca of chicken wings in the form of a run down shack of a bar called the Pic-A-Lili Inn.

They don't cut their wings in half, they come full (leg and wing in one) and all of their sauces are amazing. The mild is sweet with a little kick, I have actually drank it before, it is incredible. The hot still retains a bit of sweetness, but sacrifices alot of it for spice, but not to the point where the flavor is lost like most places.

On Wednesday nights they have all you cant eat for 10 dollars, my friends and I sat there for 7 hours one night eating wings, my friend ate 100 hundred of them - which is 200 normal sized wings from other restuarants - it was quite possibly one of the best nights of my life.

I haven't lived in or around Philly for almost ten years now, but down in Cape May, there's a bar called the C-View Inn, on Pittsburgh Ave that has stellar wings.

Try the wings at Nodding head. They say they are chicken, but I swear those things come off a teradactyl.

I worked at Black Cat Cigars back in the day (2003-04) and we used to go up there to drink, grub, and throw darts at least one night a week. Good times.

Bill's Take Out in Bristol has some nice wings. Either them or Bailey's in Levittown, if you find yourself in that area.
