Montreal is known for poutine palaces, smoked meat shacks, and bagel oases. Chicken wings complete Montreal’s food quartette. The following are an unranked collection of chicken wing spots. Nothing is more pleasurable than digging into a bowl of finger licking good chicken wings warmly sauced to perfection, and of course paired with a cold brew to appease your hunger grumbles.
Next Door Pub
All of Next Door’s wings are worth having, really, but the Tao Wings are what has wing lovers walking out of their old wing haunts, and walking Next Door. Tao wings sauce is a delicious combination of spice and garlic. Come to this Westmount hotspot for cold drinks, good food, and a generally amiable crowd.
Cunningham's Pub is a Montreal-area classic. If you're in the Hudson area, seeing historical sites, being on a boat, or hitting the links, definitely stop by Cunningham's Pub.
