Editor’s Note: A number of South Florida restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining services. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for on-site dining, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Florida Health Department’s website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen Aventura

Copy Link

This Aventura favorite from the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem boasts UD’s favorite wings that are wood-fired, made with a quasi-spicy sauce with Calabrian chilies and served with creamy Gorgonzola dip.

Phuc Yea

Phuc Yea’s caramelized chicken wings are fried “naked” aka there’s no breading to get in the way of the caramel fish sauce that coats them, helping add for the perfect blend of savory, salty and sweet.

Harry's Pizzeria (Multiple locations)

Copy Link

Genuine Pizza’s wings are coated in a reduction of vinegar and sugar that is sticky, sweet and tangy — not quite barbecue, not quite teriyaki — but suits wings quite well. Fired off at 700 degrees and served with rosemary cream and plenty of sauce to glaze to dip them in.

Black Market Miami

Copy Link

Black Market has quickly become Downtown Miami’s go-to sports bar. And what is an essential sports bar fixture? Wings. So it’s only fitting that Black Market serves its wings with a variety of different sauce choices like honey mustard, barbecue or hot sauce.

Batch Gastropub

Known for its trendy gastropub vibes, Brickell crowd, weekend brunches and late-night food, Batch is the perfect place to eat at any time of day. During game time, try the chili-glazed wings with Dorito dust and blue espuma.

Tap 42 (Multiple locations)

Copy Link

Tap 42's popular chargrilled wings have been a staple on its menu for year. Grilled, then tossed in sweet and spicy barbecue sauce, they are good on their own or as a meal.

Hooters (Multiple locations)

Copy Link

Obviously, the only reason to go to Hooters for is the wings. (Ahem.) But while there, order them anyway – its “Nearly World Famous” wings come classic, boneless or gourmet-style (the last of which adds on a bottle of Dom Pérignon), and are flavored with a choice of 11 sauces.

Casola's Pizzeria and Sub Shop

Copy Link

This longstanding pizzeria might be known for slices of pizza larger than most infants, but those in-the-know, know that its chicken wings are just as tasty — and massive — as its pies.

Titanic Restaurant & Brewery

Copy Link

This popular University of Miami hangout has hot wings at a great price. For just $9.25 per pound (or $17.50 for two pounds), wing lovers can get a bucket of Sriracha wings with Vietnamese hot sauce that are definitely worth fighting a frat boy over.

Sports Grill (Multiple locations)

Copy Link

Born and bred in Miami, this family-owned chain has become a Magic City household name. Order their famous wings in quantities of anything from 5 to 50, and then drench them in one of seven flavors: ‘Miami Heats,’ buffalo style, special grilled, BBQ, garlic, ‘Dale Style’ or glazed teriyaki.

Keg South

Copy Link

There’s absolutely nothing frivolous about the dive that is Keg South – and that goes for its chicken wings, too. Getting to the meat of what makes this classic dish so great, Keg South serves up fall-off-the-bone wings that are hot, made-to-order and drenched in barbecue sauce.

Hole in the Wall Tavern

Copy Link

This Palmetto Bay dive bar might be a trek for most, but the prize at the end of the drive is its drool-worthy wings. Flavors run the gamut from traditional buffalo to honey blackened, but the crowd favorite tends to be the spicy garlic.
