​You might want to get flowers next weekend, but for now it's more important that you get your hands on a dozen chicken wings. Winter and football make wing eaters of us all. So stock up on wet-naps and tuck your napkin into your collar -- it's time to chew on the top five chicken wings in Kansas City. 

5. Willie's. Bar Food? Check. Beer on tap? Check. Signature hot sauce? Check. Willie's is a wing's place at heart. If you're craving wings downtown -- this is where you go late night. 


4. Messy's Birds and Brews. This carry-out wing joint opened last September in Midtown with a huge range of flavors -- creamy chipotle, garlic parmesan, spicy Asian, teriyaki, Jamaican jerk, sweet and sour, barbecue and buffalo styles. It's one of the city's few spots dedicated solely to wings; the homemade sauces are made from scratch and the wings are fried to order in about 10 minutes. 

3. Thai Place. Chicken wings here are slathered in a spicy garlic basil sauce that will leave your mouth tingling but make you want to keep eating them. Get a Thai Iced Coffee or Bubble Tea to counteract the heat.

2. Niecie's Restaurant. The fried chicken at the restaurant on Troost is salty and hot, and most definitely meant to be eaten with your hands. Their wings are large, tender and crispy -- go ahead and pour on maple syrup. You earned it.   

1. The Peanut. The wing standard in Kansas City. These are monsters -- finishing a half-order, let alone a full order, can be a challenge because you're eating both the wing and drumstick. They're spicy and peppery and the right amount of messy. These are what people miss when they move away from KC.
