King of Wings

King of Wings Returns May 16 through June 2

It’s time to let the best wing win!

And we need your help. From May 16 through June 2, stop by participating restaurants to test the competition. For $7, you’ll get one pound of their competition wings, and some may even have more than one flavor to vote for!

With the restaurants listed below, we’ve made it easy for you to map out your best route. Select the wings on this screen that you want to try, and stop by during regular business hours for a sit down. While you’re there, pick up your official King of Wings ballot. It’s your ticket to help someone win it!

For each restaurant you visit, you receive one stamp for one order of their competition wings. Once you’ve found your favorite wing, it’s time to cast your vote and help us crown the new Lorain County King of Wings!

You’ll be feasting across the county on some of the finest birds around, but that’s not all! Check out the details on the right to see how you could win a King of Wings tshirt—or even free wings for an entire year!
