From what was once a scrappy mom-and-pop pizzeria, Home Slice Pizza on North Loop evolved into one of the most popular pizza spots in the city. Well known for its New York style pizza, the eatery also combines Big Apple flavor with western influences to create what they dub ‘the crispiest wings around.’ They also offer a full wine list along with other cuisine options, and this is all enjoyed surrounded by eclectic décor, architecture, paintings reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel and NY-style murals throughout.

Anyone longing for the food truck experience of Austin without standing in the heat should check out Bar Peached. It started out as a Southern and Asian influenced food truck and quickly found its way to a brick and mortar location. The inside features warm colors, unique artwork, western décor and lighting that manages to pull off both a vintage and contemporary look. Their BBQ brisket, social burger and pork shoulder steak are all worth a try. Those seeking the best wings in Austin, however, simply cannot pass up the Korean chicken wings featuring gochujang soy glaze.

What they lack in a huge wing selection, Ah Sing Den easily makes up for in taste. The Thai hot wings feature peanut & Thai chili, coconut herb sauce and sambal. The On a Wing and & Waffle also offer an Asian twist on traditional chicken and waffles. These are some of best wings in Austin, but for those who want variety, there's no excuse for missing out on the sake miso salmon, potstickers, Nori salad and an interesting take on fish & chips. The murals, vintage photos, lighting and other décor all maintain an Asian flair that stays true to the historic opium den the eatery is named after.

When Asian comfort food is combined with a Southern Twist, The Peach Tortilla is the resulting amazingness. The brand’s famous offerings – sliders and tacos – carried over from its food truck days. Impressive new items like the lush pork belly bowl, cauliflower bowl and Dan Dan Noodles are also available. The interior has an Avant Garde décor, but it’s the neon peach outside that will catch most eyes. Even more appealing is the fact that their crispy umami chicken wings might be the best wings in Austin.

One would typically have to visit three places to experience a restaurant, bakery and coffeehouse, but not at Caroline Restaurant. Patrons can enjoy all three while visiting here, and this is done while surrounded by décor and architecture that’s businesslike yet maintains a casual and contemporary flair. Those who sit outside get a gorgeous partial view of the skyline at night, but everyone has access to their delicious oven-baked chicken wings. Try them with chipotle ranch before moving onto other great options like the quinoa chili bowl, center-cut pork or all-natural turkey burger.

Red globe lighting, gorgeous murals and an impressive accent wall are just a few of the impressive decorative features at RA Sushi Bar Restaurant. The immersive view of the city featured on the patio, however, makes outdoor dining tempting as well. The biggest decision most patrons have to make, though, is whether to enjoy the chili ponzu, sesame garlic or black pepper teriyaki flavors for some of the best wings in Austin. Other meal options include chicken yakisoba, filet mignon, colossal shrimp and a variety of sushi and poke offerings.

With locations in Florida, Illinois and Texas, Doc B’s Restaurant + Bar is one of the largest franchises to offer the best wings in Austin. Their expansive menu includes burgers, Wok Out Bowls, desserts and house-made pizza for those who treat their wings as a mere precursor to dinner. The oven-roasted chicken wings – baked at 700 degrees and flavored with Reggiano and chimichurri – are well worth the trip. Pop art lines the walls in addition to contemporary flair, but some patrons are more impressed by the free bacon at the bar!

Promising a higher standard of American cuisine, Paul Martin’s offers premium cuisine that’s cooked over a live fire for a taste that’s hard to find elsewhere. They have daily Happy Hour offerings, and these are enjoyed while surrounded by vintage lighting, country-style architecture and décor that creates the feeling of a relaxed Southern experience. They offer a variety of chicken options that normally wouldn’t show up on the ‘buffalo wing’ radar, but their delectable taste along with offerings like mushroom multi-grain burgers and BBQ pork ribs simply cannot be missed.

Sometimes the best wings in Austin aren’t from chickens at all, and that’s definitely the case at Steiner Ranch Steakhouse. Their buffalo quail legs are tossed with roasted garlic barbecue buffalo sauce, and they might just convert many individuals who immediately opt for the typical wings. They also have a variety of steak offerings in addition to appetizers, brunch and uncommon dishes like chicken fried elk and wagyu braised beef short ribs. The bucking bronco and saddles at the front entrance let guests immediately know they're in for a western experience.

Listed as one of the top 50 barbecue joints in the world, Lambert’s Downtown BBQ has an impressive reputation to live up to. Considering their frequent live music, contemporary lighting, industrial décor and some of the best wings in Austin, though, they succeed in this feat quite easily. Patrons can’t stop claiming that the wild boar wings are some of the best wings in Austin, but in reality, these are boar ribs presented in the same manner as classic buffalo chicken. This shouldn’t slow anyone down, though, because they’re absolutely delectable.
