I’ll admit it – buffalo wings may be my favorite food ever. So writing this article was tough, because I’ve had so many incredible wings in Delaware! I couldn’t even narrow my best-of list down to a dozen, and had to throw in one more to make it a list of the 13 best places to get wings in Delaware. Now I think I’m going to head out to whichever of these restaurants is closest to me and grab some for dinner on my way home tonight, because there really isn’t anything better than a dozen wings and a beer (or drink of your choice) after a long day at work!
