Best Wings in Northern Kentucky
Wings: they’re an iconic bar food, a staple of the Midwest, and the perfect shareable snack that goes with any sauce you want. Finding the perfect wings can be tricky, though.

One of the best aspects of wings is that they go with any sauce you want, and we have a wide variety of fan-favorites to choose from. In the mood for something sweet? Try our Sweet Teriyaki. Need something savory? We make Homemade BBQ Sauce or try Parmesan Garlic or Honey Sriracha. If you’re a fan of spice, we won’t let you down. With three levels of Buffalo Sauce, Spicy Garlic, and Smoky Chipotle BBQ, you’re guaranteed to find something you love.
Do You Know the History of Wings?
Prior to the 1960s, the wing was considered one of the most useless parts of the chicken. In fact, the modern-day chicken wing as we know it was invented entirely by accident! Teressa Bellissimo, owner of the Anchor Bar, accidentally ordered wings instead of the necks she would put into soup. Rather than simply throw them away or request to exchange them for what she needed, she dipped the wings in hot sauce, fried them, and served them to her son and his friends as a snack. Thus, the chicken wing was created!
Doc Style Wings
Our most popular dish on the menu is our Doc Style Wings. When we served only our regular wings, we had a customer come in who always asked for them to be extra crispy. We found that frying them, coating them in hot sauce, and frying them again gave them an extra crispiness and flavor-packed punch that we couldn’t find anywhere else. This customer was Doc, and soon more people started ordering their wings the way he liked them. Thus, our Doc Style Wings came to be added to the menu, and they continue to be a favorite to this day.
