Your Top Ten Places to Eat Chicken Wings at KY&IN

To celebrate National Wings Day, we asked which restaurant has the most envious wings in town. Who serves the biggest, saltiest and tastiest wings in the tri-state? You took the survey, and we have the results.

Last week we played the “One Has to Go Challenge” on social media. We asked, which of these popular food choices are you willing to give up forever? I was shocked to see chicken wings coming out on top. I thought it would be hot dogs. You can view the results HERE. I could never give up wings. I like them coated in classic Buffalo sauce – medium, bourbon barbecue sauce or Caribbean jerk. I like a little heat and lots of spice on my wings. Getting a crispy coating is a must! It will make your baked or fried chicken wings bursting with flavor. I also prefer drums to flats with a cold beer. How do you like your wings?

Here are the top 10 chicken wing restaurants based on your votes. Do you agree or disagree? There are some pretty delicious wing options that make the list.


Pizza PeezO

Pizza PeezO

2100 West 2nd Street Owensboro, KY 42301

PeezO’s Pizza came in 10th after the poll ended. They’re best known for their exceptional pizzas, but their wings hold their own. Mango Habenero sauce is fire! I’m not surprised that their wings made our Top 10.

Every time we visit same results, delicious, hot and so much food! PeezOs is our favorite pizza and wing restaurant! – Katie Red Wimsatt

PeezO’s takes the pleasure of eating to a whole new level. I tried a huge assortment of menu items only to be incredibly impressed with each one! Also, the delicious wing sauces were certainly one of a kind. Larry Owen and the staff provided super friendly and prompt service. The Poseys rejoice that they are still very dedicated customers! -David Posey

We tried it for the first time tonight, and we will be back. Good food and service was top notch. – Paul Obryan Jr.

736 Frederica St Owensboro, KY 42301

I eat chicken wings all over the tri-state, but never tried them at the American Legion in Owensboro. Last year they finished in 4th place, but getting to 9th place is still very respectable. Looks like I’ll have to try their wings soon!

Great people, great food, great friends! Every time we are in Owensboro Kentucky we stop. -Stan Diekmann

Very good atmosphere with a very good menu of dishes. Wonderful people. Very laid back and friendly. -Richard P Stallings

Nice place. The staff is very friendly and the food is good. -Allison Henderson


Millays Tavern & Grill

Tavern and grills of Millay

9431 Highway 144, Philpot, KY, USA, Kentucky

Millay’s Tavern & Grill lost a spot in the poll. Last year their wings were in 7th place. After last year’s ranking, I traveled to Philpot to try their luck. You were right, Matt’s Wings are really good!

Millay’s wings with Matt’s sauce! The best!! -Maria Shouse

They have amazing food! Matt Wings is amazing. Plus their thin crust pizza beats anyone. -Shannon Payne

There’s nothing better than Matt’s wings! -Jim Banks Jr.

My favorite menu item at Zaxby’s is the delicious seasoned fries and traditional wings. Always threw in their sweet and spicy sauce. They cook the wings perfectly every time.

There’s nothing better than their super seasoned fries and Zaxby’s sauce! – Nicolette Crystal Vizuet

I love the food, but the wing sauce gives it a kick. I always buy more because it makes my food at home taste amazing! – Banita Meredith Miller

Mil’s Dairy Drive In

Mil’s Dairy Drive-In

10154 State Route 54 Whiteville, KY 42378

Mil’s Dairy Drive-In dropped a spot in the poll. After they came in #1 last year, I made the short drive to Whitesville to order some wings. We tried the BBQ, Buffalo and Piggy Hot sauces, and all were delicious. They don’t skimp on the sauces!

Some of the best wings in town. I highly recommend them. Some of the best food and hospitality around. – Donald Nugent

Mil’s Dairy is by far the best!!! -Kerri Knott

Mil’s Dairy Drive got my vote! -Holly Lee Kinman


2611 US Highway 41 N Henderson, KY 42420

It’s been a while since I’ve had the wings at Mister B’s Pizza & Wings. Wings are still good, but since they closed the Owensboro site, I don’t go to Henderson often. They are now the #1 place to get chicken wings based on your votes!

Mister B’s located in Henderson Ky has great food. The service was excellent and quick. I would recommend it to my friends and family. -Keith Brandon

The service was excellent and the food was hot and tasty! -Christina Courtois

Everything was fantastic! We had the quesadilla pizza, buffalo wings and of course a beer. The pizza was amazing, the wings had a perfect kick, and the draft beer was crispy and ice cold. – Rene Tucker

Angel shared some good news last month! Soon we won’t have to travel to Henderson for our fix of Mister B. They’re coming back to Owensboro.

Impressive. I expected something good to happen there. It’s a great location. -Philip Hodges

I can’t wait to wait!! -Jamie Wright
