Award Winning Wings Where to get them: Sticky's Chicken
The winner of our 2014 Wingtoberfest was the stickiest, tastiest of them all. Coated in things such as teriyaki, sweet barbecue and buttery garlic sauce, this mobile eatery's chicken wings are wickedly crisp, piping hot and totally worth the sticky fingers.

Stuffed Wings Where to get them: Bun Bo Hue, 11209 Bellaire
This Vietnamese-style chicken — or canh ga rut xuong — is just another delicious reason to visit the Hong Kong mall. The lip-smackingly delectable wings get stuffed with pork paste, bean threads and chopped black fungus before being fried to a deep golden crisp.
We're not kidding when we say these wings are garden-fresh.

Garden Fresh Wings Where to get them: Coltivare Pizza & Garden, 3320 White Oak
This Italian kitchen's chicken wings are charred, tender and garden-fresh. The greasy-in-a-good-way birds get tossed with rich and dark roasted jalapeños, lemon, and aromatic, straight-from-the-garden basil. The fresh herb brings a wave of sweetness, while the chile-infused lemon oil adds a pop of heat that gains traction with each beautiful mouthful.

Ten Spice Wings Where to get them: Bismillah Cafe, 5702 Hillcroft
Screw five spices, ten spice wings are where it's at. Owner Inam Moghul's signature blend brings a firecracker smack of heat followed by a hint of sweetness to each and every bite. The seriously hot Pakistani blend may knock your socks off, but Moghul will adjust the heat levels as you please.
Twice the fry means twice the crispness.

Twice-Fried Wings Where to get them: Dak & Bop, 1801 Binz
This newly opened Korean-style chicken joint is a much-welcomed addition to Houston. That's because its thinly coated, moist and tender fried chicken is crisp as all hell thanks to a double dip in the deep fryer. Get an order of wings smothered in seriously hot Hot 'n Spicy sauce, incredibly addictive Soy Garlic or their Half-and-Half, which is — you guessed it! — a mixture of the two.
