Best of Boston

2001 Best Wings, West

Busy B Pub

We don’t know how they do it (“If we told you, it wouldn’t be a secret,” the waitress cheerfully told our undercover critic), but this unassuming, family-operated storefront bar sells buffalo, barbecue, honey-hot, and honey-barbecue wings that are the tangiest in town. Sandwiched between a florist and a shoe store, the Busy B has successfully resisted every attempt at decoration, but it’s so casual and friendly that the regulars occasionally even brings their kids. What other tavern do you know that serves milk? For adults, there’s also a good selection of draft beer to cool your mouth down.
