It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without endless platters of chicken wings. Here are five spots that are serving up everything from half-priced wings to unlimited plates in honor of the big game. By Carly Petrone.
Executive Chef Davo Lazala will be manning two BBQ grills over at Inwood Bar and Grill, serving up wings so big that you’ll need a fork and knife to tackle them. You may have a favorite team that you’re rooting for but when it comes to sauces, it may be hard to choose. The list of housemade sauces include Traditional Buffalo, Thai Sweet and Sour, Orange Caroline BBQ, and Honey Mustard. Watch the game on 30 flat screen TVs in addition to a massive projection screen. Enter the raffle to win a Coors Light refrigerator and if you feel like taking a dance break, a live DJ will also be on hand.
The crispy wings at Harlem Tavern are worth a trip uptown. These appetizers are definitely large enough to be an entrée but I’m sure your friends will nudge you for a few. Choose from Chipotle Honey BBQ or homemade hot sauce – either way, each bite will be meaty and delicious. Watch the game on the giant projector and grab a round of beers or specialty cocktails like their sangria or Uptown Lemonade (Captain Morgan, Absolute Citron, lemon juice, and lemon lime soda).

Head out to Jersey City for half-priced wings at Zeppelin Hall. This Super Bowl Sunday you can take advantage of no cover charge, free parking, five giant screens, and half-priced Coors Light. Their chicken wings ($9.95) are not only large but they’re dressed with your choice of sauce including Spicy Buffalo, Spicy Sweet Bavarian Mustard, BBQ, or Sweet Chili. Don’t worry, you can still dip them into a side of blue cheese dressing. There’s also over 50 beer selections at this beer garden so grab a seat and stay a while.
If you consider Super Bowl Sunday to be the best day of the year then you’ll love the deal over at Dewey’s Pub. If you’ve got $40, then you can enjoy an open bar of selected beers and wines and unlimited chicken wings! It doesn’t get much better than that. If an open bar isn’t for you, enjoy happy hour specials like $5 drinks, $6 pints, and $8 wines.

Nosh on guacamole and tortilla chips, loaded smoked chicken nachos, chipotle BBQ pulled pork sliders and chocolate chip cookies. Plus, you can wash it all down with Prickly Pear Margarita Mix – just add your own tequila! You’ll be all set to root for your favorite team. Please call a location nearest you to reserve.
Enjoy a twist on the traditional chicken wing over at the newly opened David’s Café in the East Village. You have our permission to dive into Chef David Malbequi’s Buffalo Chicken Poutine ($16), sit back, and relish in a nice long food coma. This decadent dish is made with a plate of French fries, piles of crispy chicken thighs, and is topped with homemade buffalo sauce, bleu cheese, and mozzarella chicken gravy. And don’t forget the crispy shallots and chives for some extra crunch and flavor. Pair it with their Super Bowl special cocktail: the Hail Mary, a traditional Bloody Mary made with untraditional cilantro and red pepper infused Dolin Blanc in a BBQ-sauced-and-salted rim. The garnish is another stunner thanks to the lemon wheel, cilantro sprig, and smoked chicken wing strung through the straw. Because you might as well go big on Super Bowl Sunday, right?
