Wing Wars: The Source vs. Mellow Mushroom

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

Who will move on towards becoming Washington’s top wing-maker?

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.

Earlier today we asked you to choose between Hooters and Oohhs and Aahhs. Now we want to know whether the wings are better at the lounge at the Source, which serves its crispy wings with a General Tso’s–style chili sauce, or at Mellow Mushroom. The Adams Morgan pizzeria answers the call of the munchies with oven-roasted wings served plain, or BBQ, sweet Thai chili, or jerk style.
