BEST WINGS Phoenix 2007 - Long Wong's

Chicken wings are just an afterthought at so many restaurants, often buried in a list of run-of-the-mill starters like mozzarella sticks or fried jalapeños. That's why we head to Long Wong's when we have a real hankering for them. Here, wings are the star of the menu — no mere appetizer, but the main dish itself. The people at Long Wong's understand wings, which means they totally get why a big pile of six or 10 of these babies equals a meal to us. Fried to a golden crisp, and still moist inside, we're happy to eat 'em unadorned, but the sauces are just too good to pass up. We're keen on honey hot and garlic parmesan cheese, but we also love the classic, tangy hot sauce. Beyond mild, medium, and hot, Long Wong's bumps up the heat level another notch with addicting, deliciously brutal "suicide" sauce. If you catch us chowing down on wings at Wong's, don't worry if you see us looking a little teary-eyed. Those are tears of joy.

For a dirty little joint Long wong's does have some of the best wings in town. Pullanos are definately above average, huge and crispy but their sauce is typical bland run of the mill stuff (probably plain ol franks red hot). So I would have to say wongs beats them out, much more flavorful, zesty sauce makes you want to lick your fingers. But you have to go to the one on Scottsdale and Thomas. I've been to other locations and they're not the same. To one up wongs though Zipps and Santisi Brothers are the hands down best in the valley with Santisi slightly ahead. They know their sauce and they both give you the full dozen we've come to expect not like cheap Mr. Wong and his dinky 10 piece.

I live right by Long Wongs. Hot dogs... Yes! Wings... absolutely NOT! Actually, they are quite gross. Both Zipps and BWW are very good and worlds above what you'll experience from the Long Wongs fryer. Sorry AZ, the best wings are definitely not at Long Wongs.
