No. 69: Wings from Lefty's Tavern & Grille


It's not an easy task to create the perfect chicken wing, but they've done it at Lefty's. The meat is plump and juicy, and the thin layer of breading is fried to crispy perfection.

You can order them in denominations of 10, 16, 25, 50, and even 100 if you're feeling especially gluttonous. Available sauces include mild, medium, or hot, as well as teriyaki, BBQ, granulated garlic, chunky garlic, and their tasty Moe's version. If you can take the heat, order them hot: There's just the right amount

of sauce, packed with kicky buffalo flavor, but not so much that you

find yourself begging the bartender for a glass of milk.
