This isn't your average chicken wing. Pok Pok in Brooklyn serves up Thai cuisine in a no-frills space. The restaurant's famous Fish Sauce Wings have been named some of the best in the country by Thrillist.

Anchor Bar in Buffalo is credited with creating the original Buffalo wing. So it's only right that they've earned a spot in Thrillist's new ranking.

Anchor Bar isn't the only Buffalo hot spot to make the list. Gabriel's Gate also made an appearance for its simple, tasty, medium-heat wings.

Thrillist described the wings at Manhattan's Old Town Bar as "straightforward," just like its name. The publication also shouted out the 19th century bar for its "unparalleled charm."
