Few foods are as mighty, messy and marvelous as the simple chicken wing.

You can have ‘em traditional-style with Buffalo sauce or dress them up in sweet Thai chili. You can go as hot as possible or have them mild, because that’s just what you feel like today — no judgments!

They’re even good plain, or “naked,” as you’ll see them scandalously advertised on some menus.

So we weren’t surprised to learn there’s a whole day devoted to the simple, incomparable goodness of chicken wings. Saturday, July 29 is National Chicken Wing Day, and we found the best spots for you to get your fix on the cheap.
