Top 5 hottest wings in Texas

We searched for the hottest wings in Texas.

Texas is about to get even hotter! We’re kicking the heat up another notch by searching for the 5 hottest wings available in the Lone Star State. Here’s what we found:

5 – Chicken wing waivers. Dubbed the “Triple Atomic,” Quaker Steak and Lube’s hottest wings are not for the faint of heart. In fact, diners are required to sign a legal waiver before attempting to eat them. Quaker Steak and Lube has several locations in the U.S., but the “Triple Atomic” wings are infamous throughout Texas.

4 – Have an ambulance on standby. With over 200 possible flavor combinations, Wings Plus in Corpus Christi offers a full menu for hungry visitors. The “Double 911” wings top the heat index and are known throughout the area for their burn-a-hole-in-your-tongue taste. Side note – Wings Plus is also home to “the famous Bulgogi Burger.”

3 – Eat at your own risk. Bryan Street Tavern “Cluck You Up” wings in Dallas: It’s not every day that the word “thermonuclear” is used to describe a chicken wing, but that’s the warning that Bryan Street Tavern in Dallas gives to customers. The “Cluck You Up” wings are renowned by wing enthusiasts who like a challenge and don’t mind burning off their taste buds.

2 – Bring your fire extinguisher. Beloved wing restaurant Pluckers has several locations throughout Texas and this chain is famous for serving the incredibly spicy “Fire in the Hole” wings. Ambitious diners who successfully stomach 25 of these wings end up on the “Wall of Flame.”

And the No. 1 hottest wing in Texas is … The Downtown Hall of Fame “Ghost Pepper” wings! If you’re ever in the mood for a fiery meal, visit Hutto’s Downtown Hall of Fame to try the “Ghost Pepper” wings. After signing a waiver, brave diners can try the “Ghost Pepper” wing challenge – eating 15 ghost pepper wings in just 8 minutes. You could win a gift card and a T-shirt, but at what cost?
