With football season upon us, it’s time to scope out the best places to get game-day food, and wings are at the top of the list. For some, this means finding the best place to watch the game with a side of wings and a draft beer. For others, this means knowing where to order takeout from to kick back and watch the game comfortably from the couch at home. Read on for a roundup of where to get the best wings in the Montclair area.

CM Chicken | 537 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair

We’d be remiss not to add a Korean fried chicken place to the list, especially with one as tasty as CM Chicken in town. In order to switch up a traditional game day menu, CM Chicken’s crispy, juicy wings are the answer.

This neighborhood staple is a great place to catch the game inside and has a robust menu of elevated pub fare and beers on draft (as one of the few places in town with a liquor license). It offers two flavorful options for wings: maple buffalo and Thai chili.

Good Chicken | 114 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair

Good Chicken’s mission is to provide delicious and healthy premium fried chicken. The chicken comes in three straightforward flavors in classic chicken forms. The flavors are classic, soy garlic, and sweet and spicy. The chicken comes in wings, drumsticks, a combo, or popcorn chicken.

For somewhere to engage in a classic Sunday Funday, look no further than Just Jakes. It has games playing on its many TVs both indoors and outdoors on Sunday, along with a full bar and food menu. The wing flavors are extensive — choose from Buffalo, BBQ, sesame, Korean BBQ, honey chipotle, zaatar with harissa, cajun garlic, or parmesan dry rub.

SLA Thai | 596 Valley Road, Montclair

While SLA is known for being one of the best Thai places in the area, its wings are an under-the-radar hit. For those looking for something outside of traditional Buffalo sauce, the Thai chicken wings with sweet chili sauce (Gai Tod on the appetizer menu) will hit the spot.

Urban Chicken | 43 Glenridge Avenue, Montclair

Urban Chicken is the go-to spot to fill a big takeout order. The menu includes tenders, Chattanooga fried chicken, grilled chicken, and big Buffalo wings. The wings are sold in five- to 60-piece sets, ranging from $7.49 to $61.99. The flavors include plain, BBQ, 24k gold, nuclear, radioactive, and teriyaki.

Cloverleaf was recently voted the best American beer bar in the Northeast by USA Today, which makes sense since it has 24 draft beers rotating regularly. Pair a pint with an order of wings (medium, hot, or garlic parmesan) for the ideal game-day recipe.

Star Tavern | 400 High Street, Orange, NJ

While Star Tavern may be the home of the thin-crust pizza, the team also makes a mean Buffalo wing. The menu has a Scampi variation that’s top-notch. MG pro tip: save whatever Scampi sauce is leftover on the plate to use as a pizza dipper.
