A basket full of chicken wings (3 flavors), french fries, ranch dressing, and veggie sticks.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times.  There is a national holiday for just about everything nowadays.

According to National Day Calendar it’s time to honor the chicken wing because National Chicken Wing Day is on July 29th.

How fitting it falls on a Saturday this year.  I just wish we had some football to watch, to go along with the wings.

Anyway, with the day quickly approaching, I thought I’d find out where we can find the best chicken wings in Fort Myers.  So, I enlisted the help of the friendly folks over at Yelp!

As most of us know, Yelp uses customer reviews and ratings to determine their rankings in a given location.  While I do agree this list is full of some delicious wings, two of my favorites aren’t included and I refuse to leave them out.

Of course, Hooter’s is my number one!  I have yet to find wings I prefer over these breaded bites of joy, covered in the hot sauce, nothing is better.  And my second favorite, also not on the Yelp list, are the wings at Pott’s Sports Cafe, extra crispy, hot, to die for.

Enough about my favorites (although you should listen to me), here are 10 hot spots for chicken wings in Fort Myers.

Next up we can debate ranch vs blue cheese 😉

    Buckett’s is a favorite for after baseball and football games.  It’s right down the street from Rutenberg Park.

    The burgers, the wings, the beer.  Fat Katz is great.  Their sister location, Skinny Dogz, in Gateway is also great for brunch.
