Contemporary American cuisine is a favorite in the city, but Ocotillo improves on this by adding a bit of Arizona influence. This focus even applies to the decor - which includes cowhide seating, southwestern art and a host of tiny touches taken directly from the desert. The menu impresses with options like the Creekstone Halal burger, Mediterranean chicken and the popular house smoked salmon. Their crispy duck wings come with spicy red curry sauce and scallions, and this easily puts them in the running for best wings in Phoenix.

Anyone born in Bangkok would likely feel right at home at Soi 4. They utilize fresh ingredients to create a modern take on authentic Thai dishes.

The slogan at The Macintosh is 'Craft beer + cocktails meets quality American fare,' and they live up to this promise with ease. In addition to a variety of wine and brew options, there are nearly two dozen special cocktails available. Their main menu includes bacon mac 'n' cheese, smoked brisket, Cajun fish sandwiches and rotisserie chicken. Those who visit during Happy Hour, though, are treated to the Boat Load of Wings. The ‘cowboy’ buffalo sauce makes these some of the best wings in Phoenix, and guests can enjoy them in a gorgeous outdoor seating area or among the rustic décor inside.

Most people wouldn't expect a popular sushi restaurant to cook up Phoenix's best wings, but that's exactly what OBON at The Grove aims for. They have soy garlic, fuku and salt & vinegar options, and anyone who really loves wings will eventually try all three. Their street noodles, chicken teriyaki and wide variety of sushi and nigiri are also delicious options. The shelves of maneki-neko figures – those cute waving cats – are just a small part of the vast amount of Asian décor that lines the walls.

Influences from Central America, Mexico, South America and Spain are all obvious parts of the menu and décor at The Mission. The giant illuminated cross pays homage to the importance of religion in these cultures, and the angelic statues and chandeliers come together to create a peaceful ambiance. Guests can choose between a variety of tacos, prime flat iron steak, green chile duck confit and short rib barbacoa. Those who come for the best wings in Phoenix, though, will love the jerk spice, smoked chile and escabeche on their free-range chicken wings.

A combination of pizza and rotisserie is what makes Doughbird such a unique eatery. A combination of tastes – such as melted sweet potato on brussels sprout pizza – allows patrons to try fare they’ve never experienced. Like any good pizza place, though, they also carry classic buffalo wings accompanied with celery, carrot and parmesan. The large dining room houses unique seating, a variety of flora and easy access to the outside area complete with a gorgeous fireplace. Exposed overhead rafters also create a vaguely vintage feel.

Contemporary décor, wood paneled ceilings and modern lighting come together to create a polished look inside the dining room of Paul Martin’s American Grill. The patio area is just as relaxing – if not more so – but regardless of where guests choose to sit, they’re treated to classic American cuisine that’s held to the highest standards. This includes hoisin glazed ribs, steak & bacon tacos, blackened ribeyes and shrimp linguine. Their ‘Brick’ Chicken comes with the whole bird, but the herb marinade and pan-seared cooking method still create some of the best wings in Phoenix.

The Boston roots of the Liberty Station Tavern's owners show directly through in some of their cuisine. This certainly doesn't take away from the deliciousness of their BBQ and American comfort food. Must-try dishes include the shrimp po' boy, brisket grilled cheese, Boston cod fish & chips, and Arizona pulled pork. Their smoked chicken wings come with crudités and spicy BBQ sauce.

Located in the Scottsdale Airport, Volanti focuses on providing guests with an immense selection of global cuisine. This means patrons are as likely to find exotic mushroom bruschetta and Cuban sandwiches on the menu as they are Irish organic grilled salmon and Peruvian salad. Their Happy Hour wings are among the best wings in Phoenix, and they can even bring them directly onto the jets at the airport. A full-sized biplane hangs overhead along with other aviation décor, and live music takes place on the exterior deck.

Once the lovers of American Southwestern cuisine find Tonto Bar & Grill, the likelihood of their returning is high. Located on historic land that was once Native American and then used by the U.S. Calvary, this eatery offers both modern desert appeal and historic value. Outside diners are surrounded by beautiful foliage – including cacti – and are treated to vintage décor that includes a large focus on Native American and Southwestern culture. The all-natural chicken on the Mexican tacos might not technically qualify as the best wings in Phoenix, but the Sonoran spice, peppers and onion, garlic and other ingredients make it worth a visit.

With some of the best wings in Phoenix, it’s no wonder that The Mission needs to be mentioned more than once. The Old Town Scottsdale location is near the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the beautiful pottery, décor and artwork inside make the eatery fit right in. A worn-stone fireplace under a painted blue sky only adds to the ambiance, but patrons may find this hard to notice while they're enjoying the free-range wings complete with jerk spice, smoked chiles and Serrano peanuts. Guests should make a special effort to come to Sunday's Pig Out featuring all-you-can-eat pork tacos.

Along with its sister eatery, the Terravita location of Liberty Station lives up to offering some of the best wings in Phoenix. The regional touches on classic American comfort food are the same as those provided at the DC Ranch restaurant, but the classic Americana décor is also accompanied by an outdoor fireplace, artwork every few feet and an abundance of natural light. The spicy BBQ sauce on the smoked wings is delectable, but if this just isn’t enough to satisfy a guest’s hunger, the Liberty Burger, fried chicken and flat iron steak frites should do the trick.

Rainbow trout, 36-hour pork ribs, fried chicken and meatloaf constitute just a small portion of the remaining menu. After 8 pm on Friday and Saturday, the gaming area is 21+.
