It is no surprise, we all know that Buffalo is home to the original Buffalo Wings.  We also know, that wings are something we take pride in. I mean, they’re kind of a big deal.  But what many people may not know, is that Buffalo is bringing more to our wing game than your basic mild, medium, and hot. Yep, that’s right, restaurants all around Western New York are setting the bar high with the craziest, most outrageous, and unique spins on the classic chicken wing.


Of course, some good old fashioned wings with a side of blue cheese will always be a match made in heaven but hey, it can’t hurt to try new flavors. As they say, more the merrier right? These photos alone have got us dying to try some of these insane creations and we think you’ll want to as well. So, if you’re ready to take on some of these one-of-a-kind sauce and wing combos, read on for all the places around Buffalo that are spicing up the Buffalo Wing.
