Because you are stupid enough to pay $1 for half of a real chicken wing.

The days when wings were considered a junk part of the chicken and given away almost for free are long gone.

That's how the chicken wing craze started decades ago.

Somebody figured out a way to sell a part of the chicken that til then had been tossed away as worthless....

That shit ain't free!

Got to buy the wing, cook it, pay the dude to cook it, pay the health care for the dude to cook it, pay taxes, etc.

That's one of the drawbacks of capitalism. Businesses are free to charge whatever price they want. And you are free to not buy chicken wings from that business.

I rarely get wings when I go out to eat for that reason. If I want wings...I just go to the grocery store.

All you can eat wings for $10 > 10 "wings" (in reality five whole wing) for $10.

Wife took me out for my birthday last week. Wings were $1.58 each.

I laughed at the waitress and asked for a glass of water.

Left a $5 tip on s $12  bill but told the manager I would never be back on my way out.
He cared less than I did.

It's a scam, just say no and it's all fine.

Was even less impressed with the place full of idiots cheating the Cleveland Browns, but that is another pointless subject.

Whole wings are 45 cents each at the grocery store here, deep fried spicy or regular. I bought 10 earlier today with a side or rings for $8

Chicken wings used to be the cheapest cut of chicken.  Even thrown away in many cases.  Now it's the most expensive pound for pound. Talk about a successful marketing campaign. I have to say I like wings the best, when done right of course.

Good wings are worth more than that.

Most wings are worth less.

In either case, no one is putting a gun to your head.

Yup. I'm thrifty too. I drive a one year old truck and I'll drop $500 on a gun on a whim, but I'm too damn cheap to get a two liter of soda when I get carryout pizza.

I know and I agree with you 100% on the cost of half a fucking chicken wing.

What is the actual percentage of meat VS skin, gristle, and bone and tendons on a typical wing, maybe 10% tops?

Drumsticks are cheaper, meaty, and one hell of a lot better tasting then wings are.

I agree. I only get wings on Tuesday from BW3 because they are over priced otherwise. I can get a big package of wings at the grocery for $7.00. Cut them apart and fry them and I can eat for a day on them.

You probably aren't far off.

The key with wings is to time it when the grocery store marks them down because they're coming up on the sell by date. You can get them for damn near 50% off. The last time I made wings...I ended up with over 40 of them (20 whole x 2 pieces) and it set me back about $10.

BWW? If so...I'd go so far as to say that they have the most overrated wings out there. They aren't crispy enough and their sauce flavors suck.

There was a wing shortage a few years back.

I hear you.  10 wings here in Miami for $10-$14 is a bit much.  I don't order them all that much, these days.

Oh well...

I never cared for slimy hot wings.

I just buy a pack of whole wings at the store when they are on sale and either fry or bake them. Wings are the most tasty part of a chicken.

Anyone who pays a dollar for half a chicken wing is a damn rube.

Except a lot of people have figured that out. Used to get legs for .49¢ a pound all the time. Now, I jump whenever it's 1.49 or lower.

You can cook drumsticks just like you would a wing. When I'm feeling extra foo-foo, I'll give them a quick flash fry and then finish them on the charcoal grill. Best of both worlds. Some Frank's and you're set.

Last time I went to BW3 it was $20 for a small order of wings, small potato wedges, and a soft drink.  I can afford it, but it chaps my ass to get ripped off. Haven't gone back.

Boneless wings are for effeminate diaper boys. All meats taste better when cooked on the bone.

Plus, boneless wings can be made from chicken paste. People won't eat pink slime burgers and hot dogs but they'll wolf down chicken paste nuggets, tenders, and "Wingz".
