Corner Social – My personal favorite spot for hot wings in Harlem. Corner Social has a full restaurant menu and a nice bar. It can get a little noisy but has a great atmosphere and is a good place to go with friends. The wings are big, flavorful, a little pricier than other places on the list, but this is my go to restaurant and I would recommend trying them out.
Harlem Tavern – This is one of my go to bars in Harlem. It is pretty large (and has great outdoor seating in the spring, summer and fall.) There are a lot of TVs for watching games, they have live music during brunch on the weekend, a large selection of drinks and a friendly staff. And of course the wings are really good! This is a Full Access recommended bar to visit when you make your way up to 116th street.
Buffalo Wild Wings – I would say something about this being a large chain restaurant coming into the city (but with the exception of Corner Social and Harlem Tavern all of the restaurants on this list are part of larger franchised companies.) The wings are good, the beer prices (at least when I went on a Sunday afternoon) were fairly priced at $4.50/pint (for Bud Light). They have a lot of tvs for total sports immersion and the staff were friendly.
Atomic Wings – They have locations around New York and is a solid place to pick up some buffalo wings for a weekend football game or just to meet friends and get a basket to share.
Wingstop – The wings are flavorful and if you choose to stay in the restaurant they have a couple tvs so you can watch a football or basketball game. I like the range of sauces and you can pick a couple different flavors to try out which is a nice touch.
Buffalo Boss – Located literally 500 feet to the east of Wingstop on 125th street. Another good option for wings in Harlem. The restaurant is small so you can pick from a handful of seats or take out.
