It's quite ironic when you consider that of all the birds of the world, the one whose wings we love the most belong to flightless fowl. But it's true: Chicken wings are a major foodstuff these days, and not just during football games. In fact, although at some venues the in-demand limb is only a popular appetizer, at others it is the center of the business. Available in all sorts of sauces and sizes, here are some of the places Long Island wing enthusiasts are "clucking" about.
