Best/Hottest Wings in Duluth and Superior

My friends and I are having a bit of a competition/pissing match. We’re having two side-by-side debates. Here are the questions: What are the best wings in the Twin Ports (and why)? Also, what are the hottest wings in the Twin Ports? This debate will culminate in a wing-off with the four of us, based on your suggestions, agreeing on the establishment and seeing who can make it through the hottest order of wings in the Twin Ports with the most grace and bravado. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

That's got to be sort of like asking who has the best toilet paper or water, but I'd say Burrito Union generally speaking, even though their burritos are still surprisingly bad, and the owner needs to have his bird hooked up to a generator.  They should call it, Not So Good Beer & Taco Deal after 9pm Anymore Union.

I heard once that Spirit Mountain's Grand Avenue Chalet has excellent wings in generous portions. I have not yet verified that information. I can't remember the last time I had wings. But now I'm suddenly hungry for them.

I'd second Burrito Union for the best in town. Their buffalo wings have a very good sauce that is tasty and not excessively hot. They have a deal on Thursday nights (45 cents apiece I think?) but if you go then you risk getting run over by college kids and getting cold wings due to the rush.

I'm not a big fan of hot wings, but for crispy succulent wings drizzled with oyster sauce, you can't beat the Golden Inn in Superior.

I've enjoyed the Buffalo Wings at Gronk's on more than one occassion.  I think it's the quality of the wing plus the moderately hot sauce that keeps me coming back for them.

For hottest, my vote would go to Grizzly's.  BUT, you gotta ask for it!

Some years back, (OK, maybe 10) we went to enjoy their late night wing special, and felt adventurous.  We asked our server to tell the kitchen that we wanted the wings as hot as they could possibly make them.  I recall the plate arriving with a heaping mound of sauce and pepper flakes, with nary a wing to be seen.  They were all buried so deep, we had to dig for them.  And boy, were they HOT!  I don't remember ever sweating so much from just spike, while my friend's face turned a shade of red I hadn't seen before, nor since.

Needless to say, good times.
