And thanks to Nee for pointing out the article!!!

Editor's picks this week: Chicken Wings

Hot, mild, sloppy or dry. The search for the perfect pound of wings can be an endless quest. Our editors tell you their faves and invite you to agree, or tell us why we're wrong . We'll post selected comments on this page.

The Old Nick 123 Danforth Ave. – 416-461-5546
Buffalo may have invented the chicken wing, but Old Nick’s has perfected them. The Danforth pub’s tasty wings are an ideal balance between saucy and dry and show no signs of pinkness on the inside. Plump, juicy wings are made to order in varying degrees of spiciness and extra sauce is available upon request at no extra charge. -- Alison

Einstein’s CafĂ© and Pub 229 College Street – 416-597-8346 To relieve the stress of exams and assignments, our pack of academically exhausted students would amble into Einstein’s for beers by the pitcher and wings by the truck load. This University of Toronto staple has the largest and tastiest wings, proving that ample wings do matter, especially when feeding hungry undergraduates. -- Brian

Casey’s Bar & Grill Yorkdale Shopping Centre – 416-789-1823
They’re plump, coated with tons of hot sauce and leave a big sticky mess all over your hands and face when you’re done devouring them. What more can you ask for when it comes to a great wings experience. --Sabrina

Duff’s Famous Wings 1604 Bayview Ave. – 416-544-0100
Some like it hot, and when it comes to wings, Duff’s beats the competition. Delicious, meaty and very spicy, these wings are cooked to perfection. Although sometimes they drive me to tears (try the Death & Armageddon wings), your mouth will be craving more after a few bites. A definite must for hot and spicy food lovers. --Antonella

Allen's 143 Danforth Ave. – 416-463-3086
It's all about the sauce at Allen's. No dry, overcooked, deep-fried chicken gristle here. Their fancy chicken sauce (what they call Manhattan Capon) is original, tasty and to steal a phrase from a famous fast food haunt, 'finger lickin' good. -- Gerard

Smokey Joe's 4899 Yonge St. – 416-229-2262 These puppies are so big, they're almost the size of drumsticks. Saucy and tender, the best wings in my opinion. -- Mike
