Utica Gets Snubbed From List of Top Wing Joints in New York

Barbecue Buffalo Chicken Wings

Only in Your State. Com just released their “Best Wings in New York” list, and to our dismay, Utica didn’t make the cut.

Their Top 11 list includes: Gabriel’s Gate in Western New York  #5, Bar Bill Tavern in East Aurora #4, Duff’s Famous Wings in Rochester #2, and Anchor Bar in Buffalo #1. Utica establishments were nowhere to be found even in the bottom 6.

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Syracuse ranked #3 on their list, and their wings are amazing, but where is Cavallo’s? What about Slice, Knuckleheads Brewhouse, and Lukin’s Brick Oven Pizza? And where in the world is the winner of the 2015 Lite Listener Choice Awards: Killabrew Saloon?

C’mon really?! We don’t deny that these restaurants serve good wings, but Utica serves up some of the tastiest wings in the state, and perhaps the entire nation.

Have you tried any of these wing joints on the list? Do you agree with their assessment? Feel free to post your comments on our Facebook page.
