Wings. America's number one bar food is also a favorite around Chow Bella. There is nothing we like more than sitting down to a basket full of steaming hot wings with sauce so hot it'll burn the hairs right outta your nose.
Unless we have a hankering for a batch of barbecue; then we'll be happy with a not-so-hot sauce.
Phoenix has lots of places to get your hot wing fix, but these 10 places have our little chicken-wing-lovin' hearts.
10. Hot Wings, Long Wong's Mesa -- Long Wong's has been making wings for more than 30 years and has locations scattered across the Valley -- from Chandler to Glendale and everywhere in between. Most of them crank out exceptionally good wings, but the Mesa location, off Stapley and U.S. 60, fries 'em extra-crisp and then drenches them in their extra-tangy, extra-spicy, extra-bright orange vinegary sauce. They're not too big and not too small, and on Tuesdays you can score a dozen for less than six bucks.
