Though Cotton & Rye didn’t initially feature wings on their menu, funny circumstances led them to eventually adding this award winning recipe to their selection. Back in 2018, Cotton & Rye’s infamous wings were known to be THE superbowl snack of the year and everyone seemed to want a piece of what Cotton & Rye was tossing their chicken in. After being invited to a wing cook off in 2016 that Cotton & Rye won without question, the restaurant went on to continue taking titles with various competitions. Now, the wings remain a staple part of their large menu and we are all thrilled about that. Make the choice from any of four out of this world flavors and see why Cotton & Rye takes the chicken wing game to an entirely new level. Closed on Sunday and Monday, you can find the popular restaurant on Habersham St from 5 – 10 pm.
Known for being one of Savannah’s most popular dive bars, The Rail Pub is one of those places that makes you feel like you’re stepping into a best friend’s party.

Every Friday, you can visit The Rail Pub on Congress St and throw back some beers while ordering plate after plate of free chicken wings. From 1 am – 3 pm on Fridays, The Rail Pub has plenty going on along with the great free food.

Midtown is not far from the Historic District, only about a ten minute drive and that is if there is a hefty amount of traffic. Habersham Village, a fun little plaza located in the city but away from the packed nature of downtown, is home to The 5 Spot and we sure are happy about that. Along with the Sandfly location on Skidaway Rd, you won’t have to travel into the downtown area to enjoy great wings. Offered as an appetizer but more than filling enough to use as a meal, the wings at 5 Spot might make you forget that the rest of the menu even exists. We wouldn’t suggest doing that though, the Cuban sandwich looks pretty good. Both locations offer the same kick butt menu from at least 11 am – 9 pm every day, with an extra brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday. Stop by sometime when you want to venture out of the downtown area and try out The 5 Spot in Sandfly or Midtown.
