6. Jerk Chicken Wings at Sparky's Roadside Barbecue
New York duo Kevin Kehoe and Hans Seitz opened Sparky's in 2010, bringing proper homestyle barbecue to downtown Miami. Get the smoked chicken thigh and pulled pork plate when you visit, but start off with the Jerk Chicken wings. Meaty and full of spice thanks to plenty of scotch bonnet peppers in the sauce make these one of Miami's better and more unusual wings.

5. Korean Fried Chicken Wings at Sakaya Kitchen
Call it the little shop that Korean Fried Chicken (and honey orange glazed ribs) built. Richard Hales' double fried chicken wings have been a hit ever since he mustered the balls to open Sakaya Kitchen in the once-deserted Midtown Mall. Sweet, crispy and meaty, these wings come sprinkled with chopped scallion and minced garlic and could convert even the most dedicated chicken wing purist.

My Voice Nation Help

This chicken dinners look delicious.  I would like to taste the Scampi Wings at Scully's Tavern because I like garlic in my meats. This is a good weekend for eating and shopping.


My friend Carlos and I were just at Sport's Grill this past week, the wings were definitely good. I was also telling Carlos that the wings at the restaurant Al Carbon are still my favorite, regardless the people at Sport's Grill were super nice and they even joined in on a video we were making of my son eating their hot sauce.

the best Sports Grill is the one on Bird and 117th, or at least for Buffalo Wings. The next best is the old Steak and Ale on Kendall and 97th, they're all around good, and they serve coke rather than Pepsi


Wow, no Buffalo Wild Wings, Ale House, Wing Zone and so on ? I make my own and prefer them. I learned how to make them in college while attending FSU. Good to see a few pics of the food and where they are. If I'm ever there, will give them a try.
