You can get them hot or mild, barbecued or Buffalo-ed, and on Monday many restaurants will be celebrating wings on National Chicken Wings Day.
Chicken wings have become an American classic with a 55-year history as an appetizer. The tasty treats are believed to have been created by Teressa Bellissimo, owner of the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, in 1964.
The story goes that Bellissimo was asked by her son to make a snack for his friends and she decided to fry some wings then toss them with butter and hot sauce. They were a hit, were added to the Anchor Bar menu and has spread to thousands of menus across the country.
