Who doesn't love a good chicken wing? Well, those pesky vegans, but the rest of us will knaw on bird arms until our faces are covered with neon red goodness. Food and Wine magazine collected the very best chicken wings from all over America, and Chicago made a pretty good showing. Two Chicago restaurants made the cut.

Both are Asian-inspired, as it happens. Belly Shack makes "supercrispy jumbo chicken wings that are first coated in rice flour, then deep-fried and tossed in a spicy barbecue sauce made with red curry paste, garlic, ginger and lemongrass" every Sunday during football season. Yusho just keeps getting love from F&W - the restaurant made their best restaurants list last year. Their wings, which are boneless and stuffed with all sorts of yummy things, also made the cut.

If you are planning travel, basing your trip around this list wouldn't be the worst idea ever. If you want to make yourself hungry, page through the slideshow.
