WINGS!! Best Wings in Stoney Creek/Hamilton!!

Thought to share a recent find.
What I honestly consider the best wings I have had in years.
And the kicker for me, and likely many RFDers, the price is right!

The Great Canadian Wing King

309 Grays Rd (at corner of Barton) in Stoney Creek. Ph 905-560-WING

No, I don't work for them, nor am I affiliated in any way (have been on this forum long enough), just wanted to share my honest impressions of a good find. It's mostly a take-out place, fyi.

Tuesday Special: $5 for 1lb of wings, many flavours, I like Thai the best.

$5 is a Red Flag Deal for large, yummy wings. :D

A pound is like what? 8 wings? 8 wings for 5$ is not a great deal. Almost every bar I've ever been to has a day of the week where wings go on sale for 0.30-0.50 each. That you say these are "the best wings ever" just attests to the fact that you need to eat more chicken wings :D

Having not eaten wings at the Wing King I can say the Ivy Arms in Milton is way better, they upped their rate to .45 I believe, still damn good for the size. Tues to Thurs is the wing days

Hey OP, they have the big wings that are battered on Tuesdays? It's hard finding a takeout wing place that serves restaurant style wings.
RedRockets used to be good.

I hope Raikkonen is watching WRC instead of F1 these days (while munching wings).

Most places a pound is about $8-10. Not bad!

Excellent wings...they aren't the little cheesy ones either. We often get 3 lbs when we have potluck...saves me cooking and I can buy a cheap dollar store container and not have to worry at the end of the night if I got it back or not. Didn't know about Tuesdays...and I live right on Gray Road too, so it's very convenient.

LOL, trying to loose my winter 15, but hey, sure, Note to self...eat more wings. I have had wings at other places, and I would say these are 125% the size of most other standard wings. For taste, quality, and price IMHO there is no known equal. Please try them and tell me that for $5 you didn't have a delicious treat...seriously give them a taste.

Yes, Zoolander, big wings, none are scrawny. Lightly breaded and option of non-breaded too (which I have not tried). I think there were 10 wings per pound.

LOLZ! Kimi will be back n F1. Let's go Alonso!!

Should add that they come with carrots/celery/blue cheese dip.

Friendly food advice, do a five dollar taste-test....yummy stuff!!

I am going to go ahead and assume that you are from the GTA and I have quite a few friends from that area and all of them to a man say they are disappointed when eating wings in T.O. after having wings in Hamilton; specifically Boilers. Never had wings from this place but it is right near Boilers so going to have to give it a shot.

When I used to have friends at Mac we would make the commute to Boilers..they were really good..but that was a long time ago, so I can't really comment on them now.

Raikkonen thanks for the heads up... $5 a pound is a red flag deal and Wing
King is one of the top three wing joints in Hamilton/Stoney Creek (thats coming
from a member of the Hamilton Wing Critics )

Wing King is my #2 spot

5 Alarm Wings on Upper Wentworth is my #1

since everyone here wants to save even more moolah
try making your own wings
The best place to purchase wings in Hamilton/Stoney Creek is Highland Country Market (I believe they supply Wing King and many more wing joints) Reg price is about $2.89 a pound and once and a while they go on sale for 2.49 a pound... excellent wings, excellent price, tough to beat...enjoy!

These wings are incredible way better than Red Rockets or five alarm. When restaurants put their wings on special they switch out the usual wings for cheaper ones. This place doesn't do that. The wings are huge and taste amazing. These guys are on to something. NO BODY I MEAN NOOOOO BODY SELLS WINGS FOR $5.00 these days. Wings up raised their prices and Rockets has become a dirty grunge hole that must pay off a Health inspector. Wing King Ribs are totally incredible too. We go in every Tuesday like a ritual now.
