15. Hot Chicken Takeover
From pop-up shop to four popular locations, Hot Chicken Takeover brought Nashville hot chicken to Ohio. While the hot chicken sandwich is a crowd favorite, don’t sleep on their chicken wings. A few orders of five whole wings will do for the big game.

Great beer. Great wings. This Grandview bar does a lot of things well. Their house smoked whole chicken wings will light up the scoreboard.
10. Nasty’s Sports Bar
There’s nothing nasty about this Hilliard sports bar. From fireball to parmesan pepper to dry rubs like garlic romano, there’s a practice squad of sauces to choose from here. Enjoy.

Can’t go wrong at The Lube. From their hottest wing “Eat Heat” with scorpion pepper venom and wildberry to Buckeye BBQ, The Lube is a great choice for the big game.

My wife and I had our first date here – over wings, of course. ‘Nuff said. While cockfight and wasabi sauce wings are local faves, I’m a big fan of the traditional buffalo sauce.

With “Chef’d Up Sauces,” classic sauces, and dry rubs – this sports bar knows a thing or two about wings. Great place to watch the big game, too.
