Where to get your hands on the best wings

IS THERE anything better than a wicked bowl of chicken wings? We think not!

These have almost become the trendy finger-food of the modern day, with restaurants dishing out these finger-licking pots of gold around every corner.

But how do you know where to get the best of the best? You read on….

Here are Brisbane's top five chicken wing joints you've got to get yourself to!

King of the Wings food truck: If the good King's food truck isn't on your radar, track it down immediately. Our favourite is the Bee Sting, a sticky honey-sesame and sweet chilli amalgamation of awesome. But if you're a heat seeker, go for Chillogy - three different types of chillies, huge flavours, no rules.

Buffalo Bar, Mary St CBD: Wing-lovin' varmints head to the Buffalo Bar on the regular for a crack at the long list of wings and huge selection of beers. The brews come in handy, too, as the bar's Hell Bound Bad Boy wings have a decent burn to them. Chipotle and garlic is our favourite, but the bacon, cheese and chive, and PB&J options are high on the hit list.

Seoul Bistro, Sunnybank: Known for its crispy fried chicken and wok-fried noodle dishes, be sure to try the famous Korean Fried Chicken, the restaurant's signature dish. You can taste all seven flavours in the all-you-can-eat buffet. 

Carolina Kitchen, Macaulay St, Cooparoo: After you wade your way through Aunt Lilly Mae's BBQ ribs, Carolina hot dogs and the full-to-the-brim hoagies, buried way down at the back of the menu are Carolina Kitchen's original buffalo wings - and they are GOLD. The good news is they also have a food truck, so you can track them down on a highway and attempt to pull them over. It's worth it.

The Smoke BBQ, Merthyr Rd, New Farm: These guys got out ahead of the pack and have been doing wholesome American comfort food damn well since 2006. The wings on offer are the Hurricanes (a slow-burning sesame chilli creation) and crispy buffalo. There's also a decent range of American wines - try the Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Oregon. Or, you know, smash down a cold Budweiser.

Don't let us stop you drooling…Here are more wing wonders of Brisbane.
