Miami's Best Chicken Wings: Sakaya to Sparky's to Scully's
If you decide to go on a hunt for Miami's best chicken wings there are few things to keep in mind. First is to order the smallest available portion at each restaurant because this is a marathon, not a sprint.
Beyond that you'll need a pen and paper, to remember the intimate details of each variety. Think you've got it covered? Not yet. We'd also advise some floss. Squirrel away any extra moist towelettes. They'll come in handy. Bring along a travel bottle of hand sanitizer too. Lastly you'll want to have some lip balm handy. They sometimes burn.
Lucky for you, we already took on the task of finding the best Miami has to offer. Here's what we found.

10. Scampi Wings at Scully's Tavern
How can garlic-and-butter-doused anything ever be bad? Scully's might catch a bad wrap for its cameo on the Food Network's Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, but the little Irish pub has been serving up meaty, crispy wings drenched in butter and roasted garlic for years. Keep a fork nearby to get some of those tender roasted cloves onto each bite.
9. 718 Wings at King's County Pizza
This tiny North Miami Beach pizza joint has become a much-loved local spot for ex-pat New Yorkers hungry for the memory of the greasy, cheesy utility pizza of the tri-state area. There are few foods that pair better with pizza than wings. Here the 718 sauce, the area for King's County where Brooklyn lies, is sweet while maintaining traditional buffalo sauce's spice and orange color. King's County's are meaty, with a perfect crunch on the outside.
