Best Wings: Pluckers Wing Bar

Oh, Pluckers Wing Bar doesn’t play. Yes, they have a plethora of sauces to choose from—like the sweet and tangy Goldrush BBQ, or the spicy garlic Vampire Killer, or Korean BBQ Gochujang, or even Dr. Pepper. Can you get 100 wingies at a time? Sure, easily. Is there beer and sports available? Yep, yep. Pluckers is open until 2 a.m. on the weekends—that is most excellent.

But where Pluckers excels above and beyond other wing experiences is in the quality of meat. It’s a handsome wing all right–plump, juicy, crisp. Try the dry rub version tossed in butter to experience the best wings in Houston in full glory.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
