Winging It: Chicken Wings

Some days, all you need is a basket of chicken wings and fries to satisfy your cravings. Luckily, several places in the capital city offer delicious versions that any wing lover will crave.


E & L

Last Call

Capitol Grill


Known for their fun atmosphere and bar bites, M-Bar’s claim to fame is their chicken wings. Baskets come in 6, 10, 20, 50, or 100 pieces in either original or metro style. Sauces include lemon pepper, mild, hot, BBQ, garlic Parmesan, Thai hai chili, honey gold or M Sauce.

You can also opt for the Scotter Wing entrée, which is 4 whole wings and comes served with one side of your choice. Of course, wash down all those wings with one of M-Bar’s specialty drinks or a cold beer. Check out the rest of the menu here.

E & L Barbeque

For nearly 30 years, E&L has been serving up delicious ribs, tips, and hot links, and, of course, their fried chicken wings. Wing baskets are available in 4, 5, and 6-count baskets, and they come served with fries and white bread – a classic that will leave you satisfied and coming back for more. If you want a little more food, opt for the Fried Chicken Wing Plate that comes with barbecue sauce, 2 sides, and white bread. Check out the rest of E&L’s menu here.

Capitol Grill

Capitol Grill’s menu is incredibly extensive, and everything is delicious, but if you’re in the mood just for a plate of wings, they’ve got you covered.

Fried whole chicken wings are available with either sweet BBQ, Nashville hot, sweet chili, sweet Asian, spicy garlic, or parmesan garlic sauces and come in counts of 3, 6, 12, or 24. If you don’t necessarily like wings with bones, the giant fried chicken tenders can be ordered drenched in any of the wing sauces for a boneless chicken option. Complete your meal with an order of chips and salsa or stadium fries. View the rest of Capitol Grill’s menu here.

Last Call

No sports bar is complete without wings and beer, and that’s exactly what you can find at Last Call.

Boneless wings are available in counts of 10, 15, 25, and 50, and bone-in wings come in 7, 14, 21, or 50-count. Wings can be ordered battered, grilled, or classic, which are baked and fried for crispiness. When it comes to sauces, it’s a tough decision to make because the sauce list is so extensive. Choose from all-star (comeback with a kick), mango habanero, fire, hot, mild, BBQ, dusted ranch, Asian, gochujang, bourbon, BBQ chipotle, lemon pepper, sweet red chili, sweet & spicy BBQ, spicy garlic, or tropical jerk. If you dare, try the Howling Sauce – but only after you sign the waiver!

If you want a bigger chunk of chicken, order drums of heaven: juicy, jumbo chicken drums fried and tossed in sauce. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for daily specials.
