The AFC and NFC Championship games are here, and that means serious game day snacks.
You could hit up a bar to watch the games on Sunday, but if keeping close to home is more your style, there's no reason not to enjoy a heaping plate of wings.
DNAinfo's put together a list of five places to get wings hot out of the fryer on game day.
Where: 135 First Ave., East Village
Dan and John, two guys from Buffalo who say they know their wings, will be sending out plenty this month. And if you're already thinking ahead to Super Bowl Sunday, you can use their Super Bowl order form and pick up your wings worry-free the day of the big game. Place your Super Bowl order at least one week in advance or you might be out of luck.
Favorite sauce: Dan and John say to mix it up. Their buffalo sauce is great, but the BBQ sauce — both the sweet and spicy versions — is also a tasty option.
► Croxley's Ale House
Where: 28 Avenue B, East Village
Where: 63 Grand St., Williamsburg
Croxley's has two locations in the city and both will fill takeout orders. You can grab traditional Buffalo and boneless wings in a variety of sauces. You can also order catering trays of hot, medium, mild or barbecue wings in at $49.99 for 50 or $99.95 for 100.
Favorite sauce: Buffalo is the obvious favorite, but you can also try out Korean BBQ, Thai Peanut, Sweet Sriracha, Cry Like A Baby, and Red Hot Chili Power.
► Dinosaur Bar-B-Que
Get your Jumbo BBQ Chicken Wings to go in orders of three, six or 13 from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. They come with several mild, hot and hottest sauce options. You can also place a catering order for $14.95 per dozen.
Favorite sauce: Dinosaur doesn't offer buffalo sauce, but you can choose from any of their other tasty sauces: honey BBQ, wango tango, garlic chipotle, devil's duel, sesame hoisin, and jerk glaze.
Where: 46-19 30th Ave., Astoria
Dillinger's says that on Super Bowl Sunday alone, they sell thousands of wings to hungry customers all day long. If you want to place a big order during the playoffs or pick up your wings at a specific time, make sure to call ahead.
Favorite sauce: Try the Dillinger Sauce, a sweet and spicy Thai sauce made in-house. They also have classics like Buffalo and BBQ.
Where: Various locations
Atomic Wings has locations in Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. There's a handy online ordering form that will let you place your order of 10, 20, 50 or 100 wings and use your credit card. You can also order by phone.
