    IMHO the two best places by far for "classic" wings around Chicago are Crosstown Pub & Grill in Naperville and Franks for the Memories in Mundelein.

    For better or worse, I don't find myself in those areas nearly as much as I used to. Jake Melnick's grilled "Ponchos" wings are pretty tasty, but that place can get pricey due to the location.

    Cheers,

    Chico

    ...
    On the latter, couldn't agree more. Esteemed Coordinator? An LTH North lunch at Franks for the Memories? Or better yet (Franks is not the greatest for ambience), an LTH North happy hour, for a change, so we can take our wings to one of the local brewpubs, Bosaki's, across the street, or Tighthead, a few blocks away, and watch a game?

    At Paisans, the manager mentioned their Dragon Sauce was a mistake made in the kitchen when staff mixed sweet and sour sauce with their hot wing sauce.

    Nice big wings, good price point ($1.25 per), cooked perfectly, and the sauce had a nice hit of spicyness at the end. Only complaint, just one spear of carrot and celery?

    Just a mile outside of the Chicago border and well worth the long trip. :)

    Just a comment on pricing, two places that were mostly carry out were priced at $1 a wing, the other 3 were sit down restaurants and were priced at $1.25 (2) and $1.50.

    All places did have a day with special discounted pricing.
