The classic wing night—few can resist its nudge to don a paper napkin bib, push table manners aside and get your fingers dirty. It’s a somewhat primal act of feasting, and that’s exactly what we love about it.
Whether it’s crispy, saucy or sticky wings you’re into, you’ll want to dig into our roundup of the best wing nights on the Sunshine Coast immediately, if not sooner.
Mark a permanent date in your calendar on Wednesday nights to chomp on wings, Good Bar-style. Wing lovers are granted the choice of 24 wings for $15 or a dozen for $10. With flavours of spicy buffalo, Texas BBQ, Korean BBQ, ranch and blue cheese, you’re going to struggle when narrowing your selection, but we’ve a feeling you’ll be impressed with whichever marinade hits your plate. Or, grab a mate and order 24 wings and a jug of cricketers’ arms for $30; that’s got to be one of the best cheap eats on the Sunshine Coast.
Guilty pleasures don’t come better than limitless 50-cent wings on a Thursday at La Canteena in Maroochydore. The hardest part will be waiting all day for the arrival of the deep-fried chicken wings tossed in La Canteena’s famous diablo glaze (that’s a ginger beer BBQ sauce for those playing at home). Served with celery sticks, scallions and creamy ranch dressing, it’s one extremely cheap and messy meal designed to satisfy. Tell your friends, or maybe don’t.
Move over macaroni and cheese, there’s a new duo in town going by the name of $5 wings and beer. You heard us; Ninth Street are absolutely delivering the goods with their Tuesday night banger of a deal, pairing $5 crispy coated wings smothered in spicy BBQ, Hickory BBQ or JFC sweet chilli Siracha sauce with a $5 frosty cold beer of your choice. You’ll never be more excited to hit food coma status. And kudos to you, Ninth Street, you’ve truly outdone yourself.
If you’re signing up for a mega wing session, you’re going to want to do it right and Downtown have made it super easy for that to occur with their cheeky 10 wings for $5 on Tuesdays. Indulge in copious amounts of locally-sourced, twice-cooked wings in flavours of smoky BBQ, maple, chipotle and spicy for those who like it hot. Their dunking sauces of chipotle, blue cheese, sour cream and aioli seal the deal and for five bucks you cannot lose; it’s honestly cheaper than cooking at home.
It’s Wingnesday at Taps Mooloolaba where you can unashamedly strike your ultimate level of satiety by slinging back chicken wing upon chicken wing for 50 cents a pop with a flavour line-up of buffalo, crispy fried, honey soy, hickory BBQ and chipotle. Famous for all the right reasons, Wednesday wing nights at Taps Mooloolaba could easily turn into the highlight of your week.
