Best of Boston

1998 Best Wings

Buff’s Pub

It would be a shame if this unpretentious little bar near turnpike exit 17 got too trendy. The honey hot Buffalo wings are worth the few years off your life you risk by dipping them in bleu cheese for an unlikely taste sensation. But cholesterolically speaking, what’s the difference? A satisfying supply of about 10 wings goes for $2.75 (less at lunch). Buff’s Pale Ale, made by Boston Beer Works, is a nice accompaniment.
