Who are We?

Who are we?

Milwaukeewings.com has a simple mission: find the best wings Milwaukee has to offer and let you know about them!  My name is Frank, and the self proclaimed “Lord of the Wings”/ “Wingmaster” and head writer for this site.  I am not a professional food critic or a journalist (as evident by poor grammar throughout the site).  I’m just a guy who likes  plate of Buffalo or hot wings, a cold beer, and sports on TV.  I once joked about traveling across the country eating wings as I went and writing a book about my travels.  A friend suggested that maybe I start small, perhaps just focusing on wings within my own city and  Milwaukee Wings was born shortly thereafter.  Every couple of weeks my friends and I descend on a local establishment and partake in their wing offerings after which I post my thoughts on this site.  I hope that you will find this site informative and helpful, particularly the section about wing specials!
