Who has the best chicken wings in the Upper Valley?

On September 10, 2020 my brother in law and I were driving home and were talking. the topic of Chicken Wings came up and then I asked the question “Who has the best Wings in the Upper Valley?” Neither of us really knew. I later went onto the Upper Valley (VT/NH) Facebook Group and asked the question “What restaurant has the best chicken wings in the Upper Valley?” That post generated 136 comments in just over a few days. On September 30, 2020, I decided to go through all of those comments, tally up all of the restaurants mentioned (1 or 2 people listed their own recipes and I did not acknowledge them) and how many times each were mentioned to determine what restaurant in the Upper Valley actually had the best chicken wings?

There were 114 mentions (votes) involving 34 restaurants. The overwhelming winner of this very unofficial poll was Big Fatty’s BBQ in White River Junction, VT with 22 votes. All the results are below but here are the top 5 (plus ties) restaurants in the Upper Valley that have the best chicken wings:

  1. Big Fatty’s BBQ 186 S Main St White River Junction, VT 05001 https://www.bigfattybbq.com/
  2. Public House Pub Quechee 5813 Woodstock Rd, Quechee, VT 05059 http://www.publichousevt.com/
