The last few months have been long and grueling, so you deserve this more than anyone – the gridiron is back!

What better way to elevate the game-day experience than with a plate of delicious wings? Here are the top 5 wing restaurants in McAllen you should visit before kickoff. 

As you throw on your favorite jersey and put the finishing touches on your fantasy team, you’ll likely wonder which wing shop you’ll call home this season. Lucky for you, there are some great McAllen restaurants with fantastic wing shops. Is your mouth watering already? 

Wing Barn

Wing Barn is family-owned and locally managed. Plus, with two locations in McAllen, and many others throughout the surrounding area, they boast the honor of being “RGV proud.” If you’re looking for a great game-day experience, Wing Barn offers traditional and boneless wing options, delivery, and amazing daily specials. Plus, if you’re feeling extra hungry, you can enjoy their delectable burgers, sandwiches, salads, and wraps!

At Wing Barn, sauce variety is the name of the game. We recommend:

  • Cilantro Lime Rub
  • Dang Good BBQ
  • Tongue Twister
  • Razz Chipotle
  • Thai Sesame

Buffalo Wild Wings

When it comes to the game day experience, B-Dubs is the place to be. With its lively sports bar atmosphere, wide beer selection, and a menu for all taste buds, Buffalo Wild Wings is among the favorite places for football gatherings. But let’s talk about the wings! Whether you’re a purist traditional wing-head or a rebel boneless maverick, B-Dubs and its frequent game-day promotions have you covered. 

With 26 signature sauces and seasonings, you’re going to have your hands full. It was difficult, but we narrowed down our top 5:

  • Honey BBQ
  • Teriyaki
  • Salt and Vinegar
  • Hot
  • Parmesan Garlic

Wing Zone Grill & Tap

Nestled in the heart of McAllen, on the corner of 11th and Business 83, sits Wing Zone Grill & Tap. The atmosphere is fun, the drinks are refreshing, and the wings are finger-licking good – plus funnel cake fries for dessert. As one of the newer restaurants in town, if you want a great hangout spot and amazing food, Wing Zone Grill & Tap is where it’s at!
