Where to find Victoria’s top chicken wings

Good things come in small packages. That's especially true when you consider how much flavour can be packed into that classic pub-food favourite: the chicken wing. Whether you like 'em hot and spicy or sweet and tangy, chicken wings deliver big taste in a compact form. When you're craving a pile of yummy, sticky, chicken goodness, here's where you'll find it in Victoria.

Chicken On The Run

1
405 Craigflower Rd, Victoria, BC V9A 2V7

Fried-chicken fans have been flocking to this independently owned and operated Victoria chicken joint since the late 1970s. What makes this spot different is the way they prepare their chicken. Rather than the usual deep-fry method, Chicken On The Run's "broasting" process involves a 24-hour marinade followed by a quick fry in a pressure cooker. The result is less grease and more flavour. Taste the difference with a full or half-order of their Dusty Hot Wings.

Pig BBQ Joint

2
1325 Blanshard St, Victoria, BC V8W 0B5

They may come from a chicken, but the wings at Pig are just as flavourful as any of the pork products at this BBQ joint. Wings are $10 a dozen, in hot, BBQ, spicy BBQ or honey garlic flavours and you can add blue cheese for an extra dollar. Enjoy the relaxed, funky decor with hot wings and an ice-cold beer from local favourite Phillips Brewing Company.
