First things first. What is your favorite flavor of chicken wings? Do you enjoy the standard, traditional Buffalo wings? Maybe you prefer BBQ or Teriyaki? Or something a little exotic like Mango Habanero or Sweet Chili? The options are endless.

Next, what about temperature? Mild, medium, spicy, hot, or burn the skin off the roof of your mouth scorching??? Do you like drums or flats or both? These may sound like stupid questions, but it's all part of the experience.

What about a side to accompany your wings? Carrots, celery, or something else? And, I almost forgot, dipping sauce. VERY IMPORTANT! Trust me, I've seen guys almost come to blows over which is better, Ranch dressing or Blue (or Bleu) Cheese.

Yep. I love wings in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. And I'm clearly not the only one, either. Yelp just recently released its list of top places to get chicken wings in western Massachusetts and I'm happy to say that THREE Berkshire County eateries landed in the top 10! Any guesses?

No more waiting. According to Yelp, these are the 10 best stops to get chicken wings in Western Massachusetts (based on customer reviews):

  2. Hangar Pub & Grill - Amherst
  3. Wingstreet - West Springfield
  4. Pub 116 - Plainfield

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
