The boneless wings at Wing It On in Middletown on route 66 are fantastic. They are like 10 for $16, but are well worth it. Lots of real good wings in CT.
I have had great wings at J. TIM'S, Dew Drop Inn and the Bidwell. The Bidwell isn't as consistent as it used to be years ago though.

There is no such thing as a boneless wing

Think I've mentioned this on here before, but I'm a wing nerd that has a monthly crew that goes to a different place each time and one guy consistently tries to refer to "boneless wings" as wings.

It's a tender with sauce!
Which is fine. I enjoy good tendies with sauce on occasion.


It’s not a boneless wing! A boneyard lawyer needs to file a class action against the restaurant industry for fraud.

Nothing against the Tendies either. In fact, I love them - Wings Over is amazing.

That said, not a wing.

A little curve ball here. The smoked wings from the Wiremill in Georgetown are awesome, especially when they are right out of the smoker. They have a really nice tangy horseradish based white sauce to go with it, as well.
Where in Georgetown is that? I live close by there.

There is even regulations against supermarkets from calling the boneless wings. They can’t be labeled that, that’s why you see the “wyngz” and other designations in your freezer section.

Shady restaraunts can get away with it though.

It’s a miscarriage of justice

Never been a wing guy, and don't see what all the fuss is about. I'll eat 'em, but wouldn't go out of my way for them. Not even when I go to Buffalo. Much prefer Beef on a Weck.

Black Duck in Westport. Way underrated. Vinny's in Fairfield. 50 cents on Tuesday. Don't short sell us downstaters.

Boneless wings became a thing about ten years ago when the wholesale price of chicken wings became higher than the whole cost of chicken breasts.

The market is endlessly creative.

Just had the crispy tenders at Gus’ in New London. Super.
You can gamble there too, always a plus for degenerates.

Tipping Chair in Milldale (Southington) is excellent. Try the parmesan garlic wings. Their hottest wings are insanely hot, took me about 15 minutes to recover enough to torture myself by eating another one. I can attest to how good the boneless wings are at Wing It On. They're tenders essentially, I recommend the dry rub and the lemon buffalo ones.
