I love a good meaty wing made with a variety of sauces and rubs. Don’t kill me, but Buffalo wings are my least favorite unless they come with a good chunky bleu cheese dressing. My absolute favorite flavor is garlic parmesan (no dressing or dipping sauce needed), followed by Thai chili. I will try anything you suggest as long as the wings are meaty. I like both flats and drums, so there’s no issue there.

I hate overcooked skimpy chicken wings like some of the national chain restaurants sell. The only national chain wings I like are from Wing Stop. Their Garlic Parmesan wings are made with a dry rub, savory garlic, and buttery Parmesan cheese.

Here at the WRAT, we have a few wing experts on staff who I unreservedly trust when it comes to choosing a place that makes amazing wings.

Afternoon Drive guy and the WRAT’S Prince of Production, Jimmy Steal, is the unequivocal “Wing King” of Beasley Media New Jersey. Morning man and WRAT Programming Chief, Carl Craft deserves to share at least a small part of the wing throne with King James. Jimmy consumes more wings annually than all of the employees of Beasley Media N.J. combined. I’m going to add our promo guy, “Atomic” Rob to the list of experts. He likes his wings super hot & spicy. If it doesn’t have heat, the man won’t eat.

Jimmy favors the Harry’s Smokin’ BBQ food truck on Dover Rd in South Toms River, as well as Beach Haven’s, The Chicken or The Egg, and a place in Cinnaminson called The Jug Handle Inn.

This time around, we’re going to focus on the 8 favorite places in Brick, New Jersey to get wings according to the folks on the Brick Community page and the wings chat. I’m cheering you guys on because you selected some of my personal favorite.

  • Beacon 70 - 799 NJ-70, Brick Township, NJ 08723

    This place has a great Happy Hour! Meaty wings come with the sauce of your choice. I love the garlic parmesan wings! They also offer Buffalo: Mild, Medium, hot & Atomic. They have honey mustard, lemon pepper, pineapple habanero, teriyaki, honey sriracha fire, and Thai curry.

  • Mike's Pizzeria - 319 Drum Point Rd, Brick Township, NJ 08723

    I noticed quite a few people mentioned Mike’s Pizza. In fact, my friend Mike L. mentioned that Mike’s sells Wing Dings, which I find very meaty compared to a lot of other places. I know the pizza and the eggplant parm are fantastic at Mike’s.

  • Windward Tavern - 292 Princeton Ave, Brick Township, NJ 08724

    One of my personal favorites makes the list because I love their wings. When I’m feeling spicy, I get the Sicilian Wings. They’re jumbo wings tossed with hot cherry peppers and a toasted garlic basil sauce, served with a side of bleu cheese and celery. I forget the bald bartender’s name who may no longer work there, but that dude made one of the best dirty martinis in town.

  • Cuzzins Pizza - 358 Herbertsville Rd, Brick Township, NJ 08724

    An overwhelming positive response for Cuzzins in the wings chat. The folks who chose this place were clearly diehard fans of the chicken wings. I took a look  at the menu to see what all the fuss was about, and discovered they offer homemade jumbo wings,   mild, hot, or sweet BBQ. They also offer breaded Buffalo wings.

  • Chicken Town - 2799 Hooper Ave, Brick Township, NJ 08723

    Another place that has a bunch of diehard fans. I know the ribs rock for sure.   They offer a variety of wings including spicy hot Buffalo, sweet & tangy honey BBQ, Zesty wings which are hot wings without the mess, and boneless wings.

  • Urban Coalhouse - 515 NJ-70, Brick Township, NJ 08723

    Another personal favorite of mine. I suggest the signature coal fired wings with the caramelized onions. Before you order the wings and beer, make sure to put in an order for the garlic bread with melted mozzarella, provolone, and those wonderful spices. These wings kick ass.

  • Mantoloking Road Alehouse - 247 Mantoloking Rd, Brick Township, NJ 08723

    I haven’t been here in awhile, but the wing lovers in town highly recommend this place for a good plate of wings. Traditional wings with your flavor choices of: Buffalo, BBQ, Scampi, Dry Rub Ranch, or Teriyaki,

  • River Rock Restaurant & Marina Bar - 1600 NJ-70, Brick Township, NJ 08724

    Great sports bar with tons of screens. The garlic parmesan wings are my thing, but feel free to get the hot & honey, mild, hot, BBQ, or Teriyaki. On a side note, they have excellent burgers and woodfired pizza.
