Fun Fact: Wings were first introduced in 1964 in Buffalo, US.

1. The Tap Bar & Grill 


No one can deny the fact that The Tap serves the best chicken wings in town. The wings are tender, flavorsome and 100% fulfilling. Whether you like your wings flaming hot or original, you won’t be let down. It’s better to go on a Sunday during the “All You Can Eat” Bonanza from 6:00 pm till 2:00 am.

2. Yellow Moon


Coming in close are Yellow Moon’s superb wings! Yellow Moon is a new favorite eating hub in Heliopolis and it serves great, unorthodox dishes with moderate prices for those who don’t like compromising the quality of what goes in their mouth. Their precious bucket of wings is served with celery (classic!) and your choice of dip. The experience is unforgettable.

Mince’s wings are tasty AF and it’s a shame that it only takes 2 minutes to completely devour them. The only downside is that they have a standard number of wings that gets served per plate, so you can’t really play with your numbers here.
