Chicken wings have become a favorite amongst sports fans and a staple at many Chandler sports bars and restaurants. If you’ve ever needed an excuse to eat chicken wings all day, this is it. July 29th is National Chicken Wing Day, and there’s no better way to celebrate this finger lickin’ good food than with a plateful of tasty wings (and maybe a napkin or two).
Quite a few Chandler restaurants serve chicken wings. We've updated this list of restaurants and many of them offer delivery and curbside pickup options making it convenient to enjoy these crowd pleasers at home or your Arizona hotel. Here is where to find some of the best chicken wings in Chandler, AZ.
A local favorite wing chain, ATL Wings serves theirs both traditional bone-in and boneless with a dry rub, hot sauce or BBQ sauce. Rub varieties include ATL style, lemon pepper, ranch, garlic parmesan and garlic pepper while hot sauces range from mild to toxic. If you prefer sauce, choose from BBQ, honey habanero, honey mustard, citrus chipotle, teriyaki and more.
Wings come with homemade blue cheese or ranch dressing and can be rounded out with sides ordered separately like fries, cheese fries, beans or homemade biscuits. If the wings get too spicy, douse the heat with fountain drinks or Kool-Aid on tap.

Louisiana Fried Chicken & Wings

The pub-style wings come dressed in your choice of Buffalo, pineapple habanero BBQ or Cajun sauce with bleu cheese or ranch dressing on the side. Carrots and celery are available on request.
Add an order of buttermilk onion rings or basket of ale-battered fries paired with the award-winning Mr. Pineapple or flagship brew, Devil’s Ale, for a tasty meal. If you prefer IPAs, the HopShock IPA perfectly offsets spicy wings.

An Irish bar probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind when you think wings, but Murphy’s Law has some of the tastiest in Downtown Chandler. The bar smokes, then fries, its wings before tossing them in its special Jameson Irish Whiskey wing sauce. While you can still order your wings in a Buffalo sauce, you’ll be missing out if you do.
Murphy’s Law has craft beer to accompany its wings as well as an extensive whiskey menu featuring Bulleit, Jack Daniel’s, Knob Creek, Maker’s Mark, Woodford Reserve and others.

The Local Chandler
Also downtown, The Local Chandler is the go-to for craft Arizona brews from SanTan Brewing Company, Four Peaks Brewing Co., Huss Brewing and others. Its yummy wings can be fried or baked, then tossed with Arizona heat, moderately mild, Devil’s Ale or teriyaki honey sauce.
Pair your order with fries, onion straws or other sides for an individual meal. Or better yet, order a second appetizer like fried cheese curds or blackened chicken nachos, and share both appetizers with a friend.
