Montreal Chicken Wing Places So Good You’ll Need a Defibrillator On Deck

In a city famous for its local dishes, Montreal chicken wing places tend to take a backseat to spots serving up poutine and smoked meats.

It’s true that chicken wings, or ailes de poulet as they’re known locally, aren’t a prominent staple of Montreal cuisine - nor are they the healthiest of food choices.

But sometimes you’ve just gotta say screw the diet and hit up any of the local bars, pubs and restaurants serving up beautifully greasy, crispy, deep-fried chicken wings in Montreal.

So if you’re in the mood to watch the game, pound back some beers and rip apart heart-stoppingly good wings in Montreal, here’s a list of places that fry a bird and smother it in sauce n' seasoning right (in no particular order). Share this post to let non-dieting friends know too!

Of course, we know this isn't a complete list of places to find the best chicken wings in Montreal. Do you know any other great pubs, bars, restaurants, or takeout joints not listed here? Be sure to make a place suggestion below.

Chicken Wing Places in Montreal
  • Wings 'N Things

    5475 Royalmount Avenue , Montreal

    Wings ‘N Things are the self-proclaimed “Chicken Wing Kings in Montreal,” and with more than 25 years of business under their belts, it’s a tough statement to argue. Their new Royalmount Ave. location is perfect whether you want to dine-in and watch the game on any of their three TVs, order takeout or give ‘em a ding for chicken wing delivery in Montreal. Basically, you choose your style (regular, breaded, boneless or grilled), amount (anywhere from six – 200) and any of the nine sauces (including the popular Peanut Butter and Jack Daniel’s BBQ). The “things” in question at Wings ‘N Things include sides like waffle fries and onion rings, and mains like burgers, salads, grilled cheese, and desserts.

  • Diablos BBQ

    1693A St-Denis Street , Montreal

    Diablos BBQ is a southern-style smokehouse barbeque bar and restaurant, that’s pretty much a carnivore’s vision of heaven.

And while barbeque rules at Diablos, their crispy deep fried wings are just as popular as their grilled items.

Their Belfast Chicken Wings are plump, juicy and glazed in your choice of Mild, Medium, Hot, Extreme, or the signature Guiness Wings which are smothered in Guinness BBQ sauce. McKibbin’s is also home to the Rim Reaper challenge. Your ability to finish a dozen wings made with the world’s hottest and most expensive pepper, the Bhut Jolokia pepper aka the Ghost Pepper, gets your name on the Wall of Flame.

    1189 Rue de la Montagne Street , Montreal

But if you prefer a lot of meat on your wings, capon pretty much tastes just like chicken only the wings are much bigger. It also means you can fill up on a lot less.
