Adam Lippin was a college student in Buffalo, New York in 1981 when the idea of opening a restaurant that offers the best hot and crispy wings came to him. He spent several years creating his own recipe and process, even presentation, until he achieved the perfect chicken wings. By 1989, he opened the first Atomic Wings in New York City and he has grown his brand by leaps and bounds.
What They’re Famous For
Atomic Wings has established a reputation for serving among the best Buffalo wings in whatever city and town it has restaurants in. These wings are made from 100% USDA-certified organic wings, which are deep-fried to achieve the ideal crispy skin and tender meat that every Buffalo wings worth its sauce should be. These are then served piping-hot since it’s the best way to enjoy the succulent meat.
But no Buffalo wings will be complete without the accompanying sauce. Atomic Wings has more than a dozen proprietary sauces that its diners can choose from – and we love the variety because each sauce adds a distinctive flavor to the already delicious chicken.
Why Eat Here
According to the Atomic Wings management, the Buffalo wings served in their restaurants are created using a process adopted from the world’s wing capital, Upstate New York. The chicken wings used are of the highest quality – as previously mentioned, these are USDA-certified organic chicken – and as fresh as can be. The result: Even on its own, the chicken is already good to eat, thanks to its combo of crispiness and tenderness!
Once cooked, the wings are then placed in large containers where one of the signature sauces are placed. The combo is then hand-tossed so that the cooked wings get an even coating of the sauces and voila! The authentic Buffalo wings are then served to the waiting – and hungry – customers.
The Buffalo wings are thus the bestselling items on the menu. Let’s just say that if you’re strapped for cash or you’re on a restrictive diet, your best choice is an order of Buffalo wings and you’re set for the day! But since wings are best enjoyed with other food, you may want to order a burger, sandwich, or side to go with them.
These wings come in two choices – on the bone and boneless – so you have a choice between happily sucking off everything from the bone and skipping the bones so you can get to the heart of the meat. Either way, you will enjoy the crispy skin and succulent meat coupled with your choice in sauce, perhaps even eat with your hands so you can lick the sauce afterwards.
And speaking of sauce, there are several choices so you should be able to find one that satisfies your need for heat. The names for the sauces are evocative of their heat levels, too, such as mild, medium and hot insane like suicidal, nuclear, and abusive. If you have a high heat level, then go for the hot insane sauces and challenge yourself!
But there are other sauces, too, since heat isn’t all there is to chicken wings. Your choices include BBQ, honey mustard, jerk BBQ, garlic parmesan, sweet and tangy, teriyaki, and chipolata BBQ. You can also have your wings served with either a blue cheese dip or a ranch dip.
Don’t stop with the chicken wings no matter how excellent these may be! You should satisfy your appetite, too, for the smothered waffle fries, the nachos, and mozzarella sticks; the quesadillas in chicken, beef, and vegetables; the popcorn shrimp and fried calamari; and the salsa or guacamole with chips. Be sure to add one of the salads, such as Asian Chicken, Chicken Mesclun, and Caesar, just so you won’t feel guilty about your indulgence.
The food isn’t all there is to an enjoyable dining experience obviously. At an Atomic Wings restaurant, the casual atmosphere attracts people from many walks of life from students and yuppies on their lunch breaks to families and couples spending quality time. The quiet ambiance also makes it ideal for good conversations, even for working on the go, while the full bar with its wines, beers, and cocktails make for a great hangout after work.
