Minnesota Monthly Wing Bracket

"Game day or not, what better way to eat chicken than in the form of a hot, juicy chicken wing? With an exciting variety of styles and flavors available across the Twin Cities, this delicious meal is practically a delicacy to area locals.


From Minneapolis to Saint Paul (and beyond), we’ve scoured the state for restaurants with the tastiest wings to compete in Minnesota Monthly’s new chicken wing bracket challenge. Whether they be sweet, mild, tangy, or spicy, this bracket challenge had one goal in mind; to find the best chicken wings Minnesota has to offer! Wing aficionados and casual samplers alike were invited to cast their votes daily to help crown one restaurant the chicken wing champion.

We started with 32 worthy restaurants and after 5 weeks of voting and over 4,000 reader-submitted votes, we have an official Chicken Wing Bracket Challenge Champion!" - Minnesota Monthly
