What is it about the humble chicken wing that makes it such a delicious appetizer, late-night snack or even a messy lunch option? Could it be that they come prepared in so many flavors and spices that you are bound to find a variety that you can’t live without? And come on—they are the ultimate finger food!
Here are a few of our favorite spots to get buffalo wings at the beach—some are messier than others so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
The restaurant’s hickory smoked wings are spot-on. Choose from buffalo hot sauce, Old Bay and butter, margarita lime or the sauce of the night.
18385 Coastal Hwy., Lewes • 644-2500
6 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Bethany Beach • 537-1500
The sticky icky wings are true to their name, thanks to the pineapple and soy glaze. They are topped with scallions and come with a sriracha-ranch dipping sauce ($10).
17300 N. Village Main Blvd., Lewes • 645-9790
Choose from 10 wings or three ‘hog’ wings and six different sauces. We are partial to the Hammerheads sauce, which is a “spicy, barbecue-y, ranch-y” sauce.
1818 Coastal Hwy., Dewey Beach • 227-7325
39415 Inlet Road, Rehoboth Beach • 752-8010
High Stakes Bar & Grill
Get 10 for $10.95 or 20 for $20.95. You can get them plain (‘naked’) but we prefer the honey barbecue sauce. Boneless wings are also on the menu.
5799 Lighthouse Cove Lane, Fenwick Island • 537-6971
Locals love the dry Old Bay wings ($9). An order will only set you back $6 during happy hour, which runs from 4-6 p.m. during the week in Lewes, and from 3-7 p.m. in Georgetown.
20750 John J Williams Hwy., Suite 11, Lewes • 945-8850 • jdshuckersdelaware.com
21710 Roth Ave., Georgetown • 856-1400 • jdshuckers.com
Lefty’s Alley & Eats
The perfect respite for a rainy day at the beach, Lefty’s also serves some pretty super wings. Choose from six different sauces, like teriyaki pineapple or Old Bay butter.
36450 Plaza Road, Lewes • 864-6000
The Pond Bar & Grill
Choose from a plethora of sauces and dry rubs, and whether you want bone-in or boneless. The beach bar even serves buffalo cauliflower wings.
3 S. First St., Rehoboth Beach • 227-2234
