BEST CHICKEN WINGS - 2008
"Hot" is a relative concept in Minnesota, both in outdoor temperature and spicy food. Although Runyon's hot wings will leave you with a tingling sensation, it's not quite scalding enough to trigger a cascade of endorphins. What Runyon's gets right—and other wing purveyors so often get wrong—is the consistency of the sauce. A good Buffalo sauce should be runny like vinegar, not creamy. A regular order is more than enough for one hearty man and is likely enough for a couple to split. You can pick it up in a KFC-like box, but we recommend you stay and enjoy the bar's ambience. With curious quotes decorating the walls, you'll have plenty of small talk—if your tongue doesn't hurt.
