The Best Chicken Wings in Orange County on My Local OC.


Orange County's Best Chicken WingsWhether you like yours hot, teriyaki, BBQ, honey-BBQ, bone in, boneless, fried or baked, you have come to the right place to find the best chicken wings in Orange County. Countywide, young, old, and in-between, we Orange Countians love our wings.  And we’re not alone. During the 2023 Superbowl, it is estimated that fans ate a whopping 1.45 billion wings. Wow….now that’s a lot of cluck for your buck.

While it’s more than likely true that the iconic Buffalo Chicken Wing, and it’s ensuing chicken wing-mania came alive back in 1964 at the Anchor Bar in (you guessed it) Buffalo, New York, Americans have had a fascination with fried chicken long before that. According to Wikipedia, the American English expression “fried chicken” was first recorded in the 1830’s. We can trace fried chicken to our Scottish ancestor’s roots, and while the Scottish brought the cooking method, it was the African slaves in the south that had the seasoning.

Fast forward to 1964, when an order of chicken wings, instead of chicken necks, was delivered to the Anchor Bar.  Not wanting to waste the food, bar owner Frank Bellissimo asked his wife and co-owner Teressa to come up with a recipe they could use for the wings to serve as appetizers. And voila, the Buffalo Chicken Wing was born.  It is said that she cut the wings in half to form the “drumstick” and the “flat”, deep-fried them without any flour or coating, covered them with hot sauce and served them with celery and blue cheese dressing.  Sounds like the very hot wings on menus across Orange County and the entire nation to me.  And do you know we have an Anchor Bar (of Buffalo Wings fame) right here in the town of Orange?  Yep, that’s right, on Katella in Orange.

Whether it’s the Anchor Bar, or another great chicken wing restaurant listed here, we hope you will try them out and tell them you found them on We also hope you stop and enjoy yourself with friends and family, take in the surroundings, the good food, and remember it’s these times that I call the “in-betweens” (those times in-between work, and school, and driving on the freeway, and all the craziness that our modern hectic lives entail), that seem to bring us the most joy.

Send us pictures of you eating chicken wings at your favorite place, and we’ll post them on our Social Media.  Bon Appetite, and “See You Around the OC”.

BTW:  If you have a place you’d like us to add, just let us know.
