Milwaukeewings.com was founded in 2009 with a simple goal, finding the best wings in the Brew City (and surrounding communities) and letting the people know about them. Aside from finding these places, Milwaukee Wings became the go-to place for collecting and listing every wing special we could find. Flash forward to 2020, the site has gone through several periods of inactivity (this isn't our full time gig!) but we're back at it!

Several elements go into a great wing, and when they all work together, food perfection! Okay, that may be a bit much, but you get the point. The chicken needs to be cooked just right, a balance juicy meat with a crispy skin. Preferably they're not breaded, but, if they breading can be executed properly, it can be a nice change of pace. Fried, grilled, or baked, however you cook them we don't care, so long as they achieve that balance of crispy and juicy, we're happy! Wings should be a of a good size, not so small that you're done in two bites, but not so big that it's some sort of freak of nature. Sauces should be bold! Whether that's a spicy sauce, or not, the sauce should punch you in the mouth with flavor! Nothing worse than ordering a few flavors of wings that all kind of taste the same.

While we're thankful for that, wings aren't the cheap meat it used to be. That said, wings aren't a gourmet cut either, the price should match that fact! When all of those things come
