Vancouver Cheap Eats: Top 5 spots for wings

Football, soccer, baseball, hockey, or basketball; no matter what sports team you devote to each season, chances are by the time that final buzzer goes there are guaranteed to be a few things on the table: empty pint glasses, grimy napkins, and dirty finger bowls to wash your paws in.

Like all good athletes, the chicken wing is a team player. Its willingness to blend and jive with its teammates doesn’t go unnoticed. Hot, spicy, Thai, barbecue, or simply straight up with S&P–there ain’t no thing like a chicken wing.

So on those days when you just want to go where everybody knows your name, eat cheap, and yell at the referees through TV screens, Vancity Buzz and Chowmenow have tallied the rosters and made the final cuts all so you can wing it, to win it.

Charlatan Pub


Head to Commercial Drive and grab a seat, particularly on a Wednesday when wings are 50 cents.

Mountain Shadow Pub


Even though school may be out for the semester, you can still score 28 cent wings on Wednesday for College Night.

The Famous Warehouse

At this rate, Wednesdays are clearly the favored day. Is it possible that Friday has new competition? 15 cent wings served hot or just straight up with salt and pepper. TGIW.

House of Wings


Alas, you can savor these on a day that isn’t Hump Day. Hoover 37 cent wings Monday to Friday from 11am to 7pm, or all day Sunday at the same price.

The Denman Tap House

Somewhere else that’s giving more excuses to wing it up, Tuesday night means you can score a pound of wings for $4.95 in no less than 30 flavors.

Where do you cheer on and chow down on good ol’ pub food? Tell us on Twitter or Facebook, or jersey up and join the Chowmenow team. We promise you won’t get picked last.
