5 Best Wings Alitas Restaurants Medellin Colombia

5 Best Wings Alitas Restaurants Medellin Colombia. After much debate here they are. Finally the 5 Best Wings (Alitas de pollo) restaurants in Medellin Colombia 2017 edition. Most of these places are in Poblado. Furthermore one place has multiple locations. With that in mind I only included the locations we visited. While some places share the same name not all places are managed the same. Hence you will find the same brand making different or inconsistent food. We only recommend the locations we have listed below however if you visit a different location let us know.

In each location we tried multiple sauces and presentations. We took a lot of time and ate a lot of wings to come up with the 5 Best Wings Alitas Restaurants Medellin Colombia 2017 edition.  For example, most places offer the standard fried version. However some offer grilled, breaded as well. We did our best to include as many prices as possible and as much information as possible.

Furthermore, we included promotions and specials. Such as the 2 for 1 Monday’s at Sport Wings. Or the all you can eat wings at Jenson’s bar. However, you should always check with the restaurant for more information. In conclusion, we are not responsible for places going out of business and or changing prices. However, we are committed to revisiting this list every four months. Look for other reviews under local guides.

Public House (Envigado)5 Best Wings Alitas Restaurants Medellin Colombia

Address: Carrera 43 #31a Sur 32

Why it made the Top 5?

Public House Envigado has some of the best wings in Medellin, Colombia. It easily makes the 5 Best Wings (Alitas de pollo) restaurants in Medellin Colombia 2017 list. We love the sauces and flavors of the wings. The top sauce is the bbq-smoked (bbq-ahumado). Furthermore, the levels of spice are off the charts here. Our typical order is the bbq -ahumado level 3. For the lovers of hot the level 4 is crazy hot yet maintains a great taste.

Public House looks like a bar right out of London. The decoration and design are spot on. However, the bar is usually empty or at best 3-4 tables being used. Service is good but sometimes they run out of the best cerveza. Management could do a better job organizing purchasing and inventory rotation. Nonetheless if you are looking for the best wings in Medellin this is a must visit place.

Cooking style, favorite sauces:

Wings are fried and breaded here. I’m not a fan of breaded but with the sauces it works here. I will always recommend having the sauce on the wings instead of on the side. We tried sauce on the side and it wasn’t very good. However, that doesn’t take away from the quality of the wings. The best sauces are the bbq-ahumado (bbq-smoked) “when they have it in stock”. The level two spice is not bad. Level three is very hot. And level four is only for the spice lovers and masochist.

Prices and promotions

The prices are on the high side but they don’t break the bank. Most orders come in combos 6 pieces, 12 pieces, 18 pieces and 24 pieces. The combos come with fries, carrots and celery sticks. 6 pieces cost $18.500 cop, 12 pieces $34.000 cop, 18 pieces $51.000 and 24 pieces cost $62.000. During the week they offer a 2 for 1 on wings special. Be sure to check with them for up to date promotional information.

Sport wings Milla de Oro

Address: Carrera 42 #3 Sur 81 local 207

Why it made the Top 5?

Sport wings easily makes the 5 Best Wings (Alitas de pollo) restaurants in Medellin Colombia list for 2017. They offer Some of the best fried wings in Medellin. Wings are also breaded but it is horrible. Don’t ever order the breaded version unless it is covered in sauces. However, the fried with sauce on the side is our go to option. For a hot sauce which still takes good try the buffalo hot. Extra hot looses some taste and is insanely hot.

The wings can come in combo or alone. All orders come with celery and carrot sticks. However, the blue cheese is the worst in the world. A better option is to ask for ranch dressing. Not sure where they purchased such horrible blue cheese but it is disgusting, avoid at all cost.

As the name dictates you are also able to watch many sporting events here. The restaurant is small. And at times it will get packed with groups. But for the most part you’re always able to get a table. The wait staff is friendly and attentive.

Cooking style, favorite sauces:

Wings are fried and breaded here. I always order fried with buffalo hot sauce on the side. However, these are high quality wings you are able to eat without any sauce. Bbq hot is also a good option. Furthermore, you will find many options like Bbq gourmet, bbq maple, honey mustard and chipotle dulce (sweet). I’m pretty standard when it comes to sauces (buffalo hot) but feel free to try some on the side.

The prices are very good here. You can order combos with wings or just wings. 6 pieces, 12 pieces, 24 pieces and 48 pieces.

Hot Wings (Mall Zona 2 Sur)5 Best Wings Alitas Restaurants Medellin Colombia

Address: Carrera 32 #2 Sur 55 local 135 (Mall Zona 2 Sur)

Why it made the Top 5?

My favorite wings in Medellin. They are almost in a category of their own. However, some management changes give me pause. But they are part of the 5 Best Wings (Alitas de pollo) restaurants in Medellin Colombia list for 2017. Hot wings has amazing flavor on their wings. However, the corporation is going through a transition which is affecting communication with them. If the issues are resolved they would again hold the top spot in the Medellin area. The top sauce is the Buffalo Hot. I go with the sauce already on the wings but it is really hot. The next level 911 and 911 reforzado is insane. Unless you want to die ask for that sauce on the side.

Hot Wings has a bikers bar look and feel. At one point Harley Davidson dealership owners were the owners of Hot wings in Medellin. The Parque Lleras location (currently closed) was decorated with Harley Davidson memorabilia. The atmosphere is always laid back. Sporting events, local and international are usually playing on the big screens. Service can be slow at times especially when the place is packed. The busiest times are Thursday evenings-Sunday. The other days the place is usually bordering on empty. But you will usually find a table when you arrive.

Cooking style, favorite sauces:

Wings are fried here. The best option is to order with the sauces already on it. I tried sauce on the side and it was still excellent. The true test of quality wings is eating it without sauces. Hot wings passes this test with flying colors. Funny story, I first ate at the original location (reviewed below). Then rediscovered the food truck and fell in love with it again. Again management seems like a problem today but the wings are top notch. I’m hoping they stay in business.

Prices and promotions

The prices are in the middle. Most orders come in combos 6 pieces, 12 pieces, 24 pieces and 50 pieces. The combos come with fries, carrots and celery sticks. 6 pieces cost $17.500 cop, 12 pieces $28.000 cop, 24 pieces $50.000 and 50 pieces cost $92.000. Currently no promotions.
