A personal favorite of many on the 'Plex team, Bar Matchless serves the best traditional wings in Brooklyn. It's too damn hard in the borough to get decently-sized wings where the skin is crisp and yet the meat still slides off the bone. But at Matchless, they nail it—and the hot sauce will make your lips swell but won't linger too long in your mouth. The bleu cheese is perfect, never watery, never too chunky.
Bar Matchless offer four flavors: Classic Buffalo, Honey Lemon Cracked Pepper, Bourbon BBQ, and Sweet and Sour. They also offer 50 cent wings during Happy Hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
