Who Has the Best Chicken Wings in the Albany Area? Here’s the Wing Wars Results

Thanks to everyone who joined us for Wing Wars at the Washington Ave Armory. We wanted to crown the very best wings in the Albany, NY area and we succeed! We had a blast – and how could you not with all those awesome wings to try out. It was up to you to chose the very best, and you did. Check out the results and get hungry for next year!



4 Clinton Square Albany, NY 12207

Our overall winner in Wing Wars was hands down McGeary's – they placed the highest in nearly all categories and took 26% of the vote among all of the establishments that participated. We really liked their wings and we're pretty sure you'll enjoy them too. Their Thai Chili and Bacon BBQ wings are among the best things we've ever eaten. Also, say hi to Tess from us.
