Wing Wars: Hooters vs. Oohhs and Aahhs

Who has the best wings in Washington? You tell us.

Welcome to round one of Wing Wars! We selected 32 local chicken wing destinations and randomly drew numbers to create this March Madness–style bracket. Every day on the Best Bites Blog, we’ll ask you to vote for which bars and restaurants should move on to the sweet 16. We’ll be posting two bouts a day during round one, so check back for updates. Voting will close at midnight of the day the posts are published.

First up: The food may not be the first attraction that comes to mind when you think of Hooters, but there is a vocal population that swears by the wings at the Gallery Place location of this chain. It’s up against Southern soul-food destination Oohhs and Aahhs. The U Street eatery is known for serving up wings with superior crispiness, but are they better than the Buffalo-sauce-soaked appendages at Hooters? You decide.
