Though a new kid in the Sacramento region, Bonchon, definitely turned our heads with its soy-garlic and spicy Korean chicken wings, we retain a longtime fondness for the bright yet deep, more vinegary flavor of the Buffalo wings at local pizza chain Chicago Fire.
Butter rounds out the vinegar snap and hot-sauce spikiness of the sauce on Chicago Fire’s wings, which are always fried perfectly. We appreciate the slather of Buffalo sauce, ready for a slide-through, that comes on the plate with each order, along with celery sticks and ranch or bleu cheese dipping sauce.
