10 Best Wings in St. Petersburg FL 2020

10 Best Buffalo Wings–Chicken Wings and Duck Wings too!

Wings remain one of the hottest food items, literally and figuratively—proper use of the word, 'literally' (you're welcome)—and St. Pete's eateries are happy to oblige.

The list order is alphabetical. I refuse to say that these wings are better than those, and so on. In my opinion, that is wrong. There is no "apples-to-apples" comparison here. These are all excellent wings, and you should try them all, which brings me to another point.

There are other publishers of "best of lists" that do not actually go to the establishment and actually eat the food. They just surf the web collecting information, and downloading photos, or emailing the restaurant for them. We think those types of lists are crap.

Unfortunately, we've seen it a lot—from national and local publishers. We are also aware of a local publisher that offers paid placement in best-of-lists. There is no paid placement here.

It's ridiculous that I need to say this, but yes ... I ATE ALL OF THESE WINGS, AND WENT TO ALL OF THESE PLACES, AND THESE ARE ALL ST. PETE FOODIES PHOTOS.

Most of the places listed offer different versions of their wings. We are featuring one of each.

Here are the 10 Best Wings in St. Pete for 2020

These are listed in alphabetical order. <------ Look

Pound of Grilled Wings Original

From Lori's Bier Boutique review: "These wings are large in size, juicy, spicy and absolutely some of the best I have ever had. On the menu they are described as a Pound of Grilled Wings - choose original, chipotle bbq, supercharged or jerk. I know Kevin will definitely go for the supercharged next time."

Engine No 9 Sriracha Wings

We always see people raving all over social media about the Sriracha Wings at Engine No.9, and it's for good reason. In the past, I shied away from cooked Sriracha items as it gets sweet, and loses it's heat when cooked. However, Engine figured out how to get them sweet with heat, and I love it. Here's me at Engine No.9 eating Sriracha wings while wearing my on-theme Sriracha shirt.

Ford's Classic Wings are fried crispy. They have a nice crunch, pack a little punch and really satisfy. They have a little bit of char, which adds another satiating dimension.

Harry's Wings with the Signature Sirata Sauce

From Lori's write-up: "Harry's has been voted as having the best wings on St Pete Beach, so no question, we had to try them. We were going to just get them with buffalo sauce, but then our server said we had to try the Signature Sirata Sauce which is a mixture of Boom Boom and sriracha. As soon as I heard that...I was totally in. They are super saucy and absolutely delicious! I highly recommend these wings and that sauce is a must! Completely craveable."

Dancing with Alex - Four deeply sautéed duck wings presented with your choice of our signature citrus buffalo sauce or our soon to be famous Tabasco honey glaze.

The Lure changes things up with Duck wings. I had the citrus buffalo sauce version, and enjoyed them immensely. They are a little less spicy than typical Buffalo wings, which sometimes disappoints me, as I love spicy food, but I was pleasantly surprised. The little bit of sweetness, and tanginess had me wanting more than just the four.

Up in Smoke Wings Blackened

From Lori's write-up on No Vacancy:

Just look at those wings. As the name suggests, they really are smoked and tasted like a smoked bbq wing. We were so glad that we chose blackened. But look forward to trying the buffalo too. If you are a big fan of wings, you are going to love these!

The smoked wings here are killer delicious. The seasonings, outside crunchiness, and inside juiciness will have you craving these for days.

  1. I love the blackened garlic at Sunset Grill! It’s a dive bar but those wings are my favorite! I have tried Three Birds several times and I just can’t like them- they are always dry
    • Kevin Godbee Kevin Godbee
      Thanks Wendy! I'll have to give them a try.
  2. No Pesky Pelican BrewPub, Sy “In The Burg” Wings? Feel like there are at least 2 of the places on your list you could have bumped to give them a slot. Unique to St Pete and addictively delicious!
    • Kevin Godbee Kevin Godbee
      Pesky Pelican's are really good. They were very close to making the list. It was between them and Harry's, and we liked Harry's just a little more.
  3. We plan on trying each place on the list. Have you tried, Mastry's Brewing CO. They have a custom hot source, ordered extra crispy with a side of buffalo source. Really amazing. This out of their truck kitchen. Very impressing.

      That's great, Dave! Thanks for the tip on Mastry's.
